Whether Astrology is science or magic, we’re open to most things, if they may be of benefit. ~ Ed.
Not everyone resonates with the characteristics set out in traditional Western Zodiac signs.
Fortunately, there is another way of discovering more about personalities and behaviours than simply looking at constellations.
The Celts hold an ancient belief that we all derive from trees, and our date of birth is interconnected with the qualities found in nature. They say that the season we were born in is pivotal to the formation of our individual tendencies and traits.
Not only did the Celts intensely observe nature on Earth, they also looked to the skies and noted that the movement of the moon also played a vital part in shaping our unique characteristics. Therefore, Celtic astrology is based around a lunar calendar. This means that there are 13 Celtic Zodiac signs rather than the 12 identified in standard Western astrology (the moon has 13 yearly phases).
Trees are a symbol of life, death, and renewal, and almost all of the trees found in Celtic countries are revered in Celtic traditions.
The Celts’ deep and profound connection with trees, which they believed contained powerful spiritual energy, wisdom, and sacred knowledge, led them to correlate each lunar month with a tree and assign a Celtic Zodiac sign to those born during that period.
