Magickal lore surrounding Uva Ursi falls into two major areas: Psychic power/divination, and connection with the animal kingdom. Uva Ursi is said to align a person with their own inner strength, and to help connect with ancestral knowledge.
Uva Ursi is especially favored by those who work with Bear energy. Shamans use Bearberry for shape-shifting magick. Healing (of others) and wisdom-seeking are other magickal properties of Bearberry.
