In ancient times the mandrake root is a symbol of masculinity. It was often used in magical ceremonies and therefore she was given a similar meaning as a doll in the voodoo cult. When a man meets a mandrake root in a dream or a mannequin, he makes contact with the deeply hidden desire to hurt other people. Both objects may also press a conflict with humans. It is interesting that the mandrake root is also a symbol of the “Great Mother” and therefore symbolizes the feminine aspect. In witchcraft, the witch is thus a connection with the destructive force of their own self-ago.
In a dream symbol like the mandrake lies the duality of creation: it is a plant that can be cured with or killed. Dreaming of the requirement here is to decide and to take responsibility for his decision.
The power over life and death is on a spiritual level the right to live, as it conforms to the beliefs of the dreamer.
Explanation & Definition:
A Mediterranean plant of the nightshade family, with white or purple flowers and large yellow berries.
Mandrake is the common name for members of the plant genus Mandragora, particularly the species Mandragora officinarum, belonging to the nightshades family (Solanaceae). Because mandrake contains deliriant hallucinogenic tropane alkaloids such as atropine, scopolamine, apoatropine, hyoscyamine and the roots sometimes contain bifurcations causing them to resemble human figures, their roots have long been used in magic rituals, today also in neopagan religions such as Wicca and Germanic revivalism religions such as Odinism.
