Celtic Tree Astrology Signs

Celtic Tree Astrology is the astrological system practised by the ancient Celts. It is based on an ancient Celtic symbol system. The Celtic Zodiac is drawn from the beliefs of the Druids and is based on the cycles of the moon. The year is divided into 13 lunar months, with a tree (sacred to the druids) assigned to each month. Each tree has particular magical qualities whose secret mysteries come from the ancient Celtic alphabet, the Ogram. The Celts envisioned the entire Universe in the form of a tree, whose roots grew deep below (in the ground) and whose branches reached up high (into the Heavens). In time, the Celtic people eventually designated a tree to each of the 13 Moon Phase's in their calendar, in accordance with its magical properties. As such the Celtic Zodiac is based upon the cycles of the Moon, with the year divided into the 13 lunar months established by the Druid religion.

The Druid religion was based mainly upon an awareness of natural and supernatural energies. These energies were identified with spirits and the Celtic Druids believed that trees were given these spirits, who dwelt within, and were perceived as attributes of the Supreme Being. Thus, trees were considered living entities, possessed with Infinite Knowledge and Wisdom...symbolically representative of the Cycle of Life, Death and Renewal, and symbolically connected with the three planes of existence: mind, body, and spirit. To Christians, it illustrated the essential core of Christian belief where God was the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. For both beliefs, the Trinity Knot symbolized the way in which the three separate essences were vitally interconnected.

On the whole, Celtic societies were based upon the equality and balance between the male and the female...the female Druidesses being symbolized by the Spirits who lived in the sacred trees. Each Celtic Zodiac Sign corresponds to a given tree, a letter of the Ogham alphabet, a Guardian Animal, a Celtic God, and other items such as Gemstones.

The Celts have a long tradition of astrological learning stretching back to a time long before Christianity and the incoming of Greek and Latin learning. For too long now this extensive and rich tradition of Celtic Astrology has been sadly neglected.

Mine is the Elder Tree......

The Elder Tree - Elder tree people command respect. When they are young they are extravagent and wasteful but inevitably, at some point of life something dawns on them and they settle down. They have a great deal of patience and self discipline. They can sometimes be heartless and cruel and sometimes possess a lack of good judgement in their choice of friends. They are ambitious people and are determined to win at all costs. They are outspoken and can be inclined to speak without thinking first but are very persuasive and elegant when they take the time. They are highly energetic people and have a great deal of physical stamina. Elder tree people are open in relationships but don't tend to fall too deeply. They seem to keep their emotions out of most situations. They make wonderful aunts and uncles but have difficulty taming their restless nature enough for parenthood.

The Vine Tree - Vine people have an oddly dual personality. One minute they can be joyful and exuberant and the next minute be in tears. Their emotions run on high and yet they appear cool as a cucumber when in the face of danger or opposition. They are instinctive organizers and are drawn to public service careers. Vine people are kind, gentle and creative and good socializers. They do however lean towards overindulgence at times. They require a great deal of mental and emotional security to feel content. They are simple people and usually not highly ambitious in their pursuits. Their most important lesson is to learn to balance both sides of life, the sowing and the reaping. They are passionate lovers but their dual nature often makes marriage difficult to sustain. They have an earthy quality that some people find extremely attractive while others will find them aloof. They are refined people with a good sense of humr as long as it isnt too coarse. They are easily hurt by lack of consideration from others.

Does this sound like you??????
