Trees play a major role within the faith system across many cultures. In the Celtic world, trees were a source of ancient wisdom. Often chosen trees carried associations with them that provided an understanding of a time frame at hand. The Celtic Tree Zodiac was created due to these associations, along with the seasonal changes/lunar calendar.
It was viewed that an individual born on a particular day would carry similar characteristics of the Tree Spirit, given their birth month. This is much the same as how we relate personality as well as life traits to our specific Sun Sign through use of the Solar Calendar.
Once the Celtic Tree Zodiac was understood, the Ancients used it in order to gain wisdom and healing. The use of manifestation worked positively with the strongest and most productive energy for the time of the year. Each Full Moon was named relative to the tree that was associated with the month in question, and thus rituals were created accordingly.
It is important to note that this is the Lunar Calendar, not the Solar Calendar. The dates associated will differ to your Sun Sign in certain instances, for example, those who are cusp signs/a week either side of the Sun Sign Zodiac – be generous with your associations of the Celtic Tree Zodiac.
