The Walnut Tree Halloween Love Divination

Halloween has long been a time for love divinations and scrying. Here is a less common love divination that I found in a newspaper article from 1914.

The Walnut Tree

“Last Hallow Eve I sought a walnut tree,

In hopes my true love’s face I might see.

Three times I called, three times I walked apace;

Then in the tree I saw my true love’s face.”

If you wish to see the face of your future husband (or wife) walk out in the moonlight on Halloween to the nearest walnut tree, walk around it three times, calling out, “Let him that is to be my true love bring me some walnuts,” and you will see your future husband (or wife) gathering them in the tree!
