The Three Sides of a Druid's Question.

It is well accepted that the Druids and Celts were all
for framing everything it sets of three.
So when a Druid ask a question, it should not be a surprise
 that they seek three different answers.

Side One:
The Common, Practical, Physical, Physiological, and Sociological side, the realm of the Brehon.  Where the answers may be weighted and tallied.  Yet it may also have a Religious aspect and or other Occultations.

Side Two:
The Philosophical side, realms of the Bard, Mind, and Awen. Yet it may also have a Religious aspect and or other Occultations.

Side Three:
The Metaphysical side, realms of the Vatis or Ovate, Seer, Psychic and Prophet.
 Here Summerlands, the Astral, Conjure and Draíocht, twist and bend the Natural Laws like Mist twisting in the Sunshine.
Yet it may also have a Religious aspect and or other Occultations.

Our Discussion Lexicon.

Relating to biology or living organisms.

Call upon (a spirit or ghost) to appear, by means of a magic ritual.
Implore or without physical efforts force, someone to do something.

One of the three primary arts, the word is used to refer to what we would now call "magick" (in both the simple and the ritual sense). It means "the use of powers to effect ends."

Conjure: "The Witches Flower" Horsenettle (Solanum carolinense)

From my yard.

I keep a small supply for various Conjure usages. Certain people (myself included)  are not allergic to its touch or scratches from its very sharp thorns and as all parts are Poisonous to Humans, I have Renamed it "The Witches Flower" And Like Witchcraft it is very hard to uproot and goes deep underground to survive.

>>Horsenettle (Solanum carolinense), a poisonous member of the nightshade family, is one of the most difficult weeds to eradicate since it resists most attempts at control. Tilling the soil only makes it worse because it brings seeds to the surface where they can germinate. Flame weeding doesn’t kill the weed either because the penetrating roots reach depths of 10 feet or more, where they survive after the tops are burned away.

Is a poisonous member of the nightshade family,

All parts of the plant, including its tomato-like fruit, are poisonous to varying degrees due to the presence of solanine glycoalkaloids which is a toxic alkaloid and one of the plant's natural defenses. While ingesting any part of the plant can cause fever, headache, scratchy throat, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, ingesting the fruit can cause abdominal pain, circulatory and respiratory depression, or even death.
