Trumonira ash and cure

  • The whole year line is here. The half that remains a year will be cut and cut. It says, "San Juan larraka, marraka every year." Damaso Intza collected and published in Pamplona in 1974 in the book Euskal Eserak Zarrak of Naparrona, explains: "It says San Juan larraka when there is bad time in the sanjuanas, dark, fairly thick, it does not rain or go out, without there being too much wheat yet, all the exterior very late." This year has been a cry and also a lightning bolt, that is, a cloud or a thunder.

If the sound of thunder has come all year round, we will need trumoira or trumonira (Osmunda regalis) or anger. Xabier Laka Arrizubieta, from Ispaster, has reminded us very well the image of the trumoid as she says. Also called Doniane-ira, Jondoni Joane-iratze, Sanjuan-iratze, Sanjuan-garoa and Sanjuan-ira, you have to bless the day of the doniene to protect yourself from the storm and Azkue, Catholic priest, explains how to use it: “The hymn and the trumonira, blessed then, have been burned at the door of the dome of the tile during the days of trumon: those that we rattle a year in the others on the eve of doniane.” Laurel or laurel is Laurus nobilis.

To protect lobby orchards, cultivation fields, chamomiles, meadows, etc., besides time, it is customary to put bouquets of flowers, bundles of sanjuan. It is a selection of flowers to complete the bouquet in each house and region. Medicinal plants, rituals, simple, with optimal flowering at this time, each of them.

In lots, besides flowers, there are herbs and leaves. Very rarely, at the foot of the deck I have also seen heads of the plants, such as garlic (Allium sativum) and onion (Allium cepa) that can be picked up now. View photo of Ainara Riveras Irusta, of the festivities of San Juan de Goita in Mallabia.

The cult of the plants surrounding the summer solstice is very rich, and old; the cult of the nature of the mother’s mother, not like those other cults that do not lead us to the perdition, of money, of the gods… The plants hold us at least, without them we would not be.

The worship and goodbye of the plants will be old thing, the need for blessing would come later; the forced need, the duty of the dentist sect. It is common to place ash worms in the lobbies (Fraxinus excelsior), and it is well known that ash is one of the few plants that do not require the blessing of the sect, by nature blessed. That is why we will have among ourselves, along with the white majuelo (Crataegus monogyna), the most protective tree.

It also tells the cure of the Catholic sect of our country, which has placed branches of ash on the door of the cural house.

We have a very close image: floating on the water, as if we were running and jumping on the bed mattress. It is logical to think that the bodies of animals sink into the water when they try to walk through the surface of the water, but the oppressor does not sink… Something is... [+]
