"Many superstitions surround flax. To dream of the plant indicates a happy and prosperous marriage. To dream of spinning flax, however, suggests bad fortune. When it blooms, flax can be cut for use as a protection against witchcraft. It can also be woven with chants and incantations to protect the wearer of the final garment."
