My ancestors were Romany and my Grandmother used
to sometimes talk about 'the olde ways'.
Silver is a easy conductor, and it was said that earth's
energy, or magnetism can control and subdue the beast.
Salt, or the dust from God's sandals, is a fear of Werewolves.
In certain circles, Jesus is believed to be born on the 6th
January, 29 days later (a lunar month), the Wolf Moon
appears and it is said that anyone born on 4th-5th February
holds the Shape-shifting gift.
Oak wood can kill Werewolves, the cup of the acorn represents
the Grail, the hairless acorn represents humanity and the wolf
man must be harnessed and his human side must succeed.
The Tannin from the tree, used by leather workers on hides
is another part of the curse, I'll not belay the connection.
Finally, a large oak shaft with a solid silver nail in it, will
banish the Werewolf from your door.
