Marigolds, picked at noon when the Sun is at its hottest and strongest, will strengthen and comfort the heart. Garlands of marigolds strung on the doorposts stop evil from entering the house, and scattered under the bed they protect you while asleep and make your dreams come true, i.e., give you prophetic dreams. Especially effective in discovering a thief who has robbed you. Marigolds added to the bathwater help win the respect and admiration of everyone you meet. Looking at the bright flowers strengthens the sight, and carried in the pocket, marigold helps justice to smile favorably upon you while in court. If a girl touches the petals of the marigold with her bare feet, she will understand the languages of the birds.
