How We Came to Be
Rowan Temple of Light went Public on Facebook September 1, 2017. The Name was a Combined effort of Members.
Rowan is Lady Gwendolyn's Paternal Family Name and traces back to England and Scandinavia.
A Rowan berry is shaped like a five-pointed star, first of all, the symbol of magical protection against spells, enchantments, and glamour. You, too, are a magical creature, able to use you intuition and higher understanding to both enchant and protect. Trust your insights, and act upon them - even if you're seen as "unusual" or "unpredictable" by others. Your ability to envision the future is priceless.
Norse myth tells that the first woman was formed from a rowan, while the ash formed the first man. Rowan is reported to have saved the life of the god Thor by bending over a swift river where he was drowning and enabling him to pull himself out.
The Druids used incense made from rowan wood to conjure spirits.
