The Druids were possessed of “… much knowledge of the stars and their motion, of the size of the world and of the earth, of natural philosophy…”

Irish Astrology, also referred to as Celtic Tree Astrology, is the astrological system practiced by the ancient Irish. It is based on a Druid symbol system and not on any of the traditional systems such as Western, Chinese or Vedic astrologies.
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 shamanic alphabet, the Ogram. The origin of this Tree Alphabet is ascribed to the God of Poetry and Eloquence of Celtic Ireland, Ogam. He is also known as the Celtic Herkules.
The Druids were Celtic priests who inhabited much of Western Europe, Brtain and Ireland until they were supplanted by the Roman government and, later, by the arrival of Christianity.
Some renowned Celtic scholars also noticed, thanks to their vast understanding, that Celtic astronomy paralleled the Vedics. They discovered that the ancient Celtic astrologers used similar systems as those of the Vedic astrologers.
Classical writers such as Cicero, Caesar, Pliny described the Celts as “masters of astronomy”. Even the Romans paid tribute to their astronomy. One of the first to note that the ancient Celts believed the world to be round (not flat) was Martial (c. AD 40-103/4) who himself claimed Celtic ancestry.
The Irish (and the Celts generally) have a long tradition of astrological learning stretching back to a time before Christianity and the incoming of Greek and Latin learning. For too long now this long and rich tradition of Celtic Astrology has been sadly neglected.
It is believed that the Tree’s hold many powers
as it sow’s its seed on our precious earth,It’s also said that trees are the toy chest of souls,
who wait for the right maiden to allot them rebirth.

Celtic Tree Astrology
Celtic Tree Astrology is the astrological system practiced by the ancient Irish. 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.

via > What’s Your Sign?
Celtic tree astrology is based on the ancient idea that the time of our births is pivotal to the formation of our personality and behavior.
The spiritually savvy Celts, particularly the druids were expert observers. Over time, they recognized that a child born within a certain season would develop certain qualities. Further, the druids observed patterns in the color and shape of a person’s life according to the motions of the moon (their calendar being based on a lunar year) and the season in which we are born.
The system of Celtic tree astrology was developed out of a natural connection with the druid’s knowledge of earth cycles and their reverence for the sacred knowledge held by trees. The druids had a profound connection with trees and believed they were vessels of infinite wisdom.
Carrying this concept a step forward, we can associate the likeness and personality of trees to our own human nature. By doing so, we gather inspired insight and clarity into who we are.
Birch – The Achiever
December 24 – January 20
If you were born under the energy of the Birch you can be highly driven, and often motivate others they become easily caught in your zeal, drive and ambition. You are always reaching for more, seeking better horizons and obtaining higher aspirations. The Druids attributed this to your time of birth, which is a time of year shrouded by darkness, so consequently you are always stretching out to find the light. Birch signs (just like the tree) are tolerant, tough, and resilient. You are cool-headed and are natural-born rulers, often taking command when a situation calls for leadership. When in touch with your softer side, you also bring beauty in otherwise barren spaces, brightening up a room with you guile, and charming crowds with you quick wit. Celtic tree astrology Birch signs are compatible with Vine signs and Willow signs.
Rowan – The Thinker
January 21 – February 17
Celtic tree astrology recognizes Rowan signs as the philosophical minds within the zodiac. If you were born under the Rowan energy, you are likely a keen-minded visionary, with high ideals. Your thoughts are original and creative, so much so, that other’s often misunderstand from where you are coming. This sometimes makes you aloof when interacting with others as you feel they wouldn’t understand where you are coming from anyway. Nevertheless, although you may appear to have a cool exterior, you are burning within from your passionate ideals. This inner passion provides inner motivation for you as you make your way through life. You have a natural ability to transform situations and people around you by your mere presence. You arehighly influential in a quiet way and others look to you for your unique perspectives. Rowan pairs well with Ivy and Hawthorn signs.
Ash – The Enchanter
February 18 – March 17
Those born under the Celtic tree astrology sign of the Ash are free thinkers. Imaginative, intuitive, and naturally artistic, you see the world in water-color purity. You have a tendency to moody and withdrawn at times, but that’s only because your inner landscape is in constant motion. You are in touch with your muse, and you are easily inspired by nature. Likewise, you inspire all that you associate with and people seek you out for your enchanting personality. Art, writing (especially poetry), science, and theology (spiritual matters) are areas that strongly interest you. Others may think you are reclusive, but in all honesty, you are simply immersed in your own world of fantastic vision and design. You are in a constant state of self-renewal and you rarely place a value on what others think about you. Ash signs partner well with Willow and Reed signs.
Alder – The Trailblazer
March 18 – April 14
If you are an Alder sign within the Celtic tree astrology system, you are a natural-born pathfinder. You’re a mover and a shaker, and will blaze a trail with fiery passion often gaining loyal followers to your cause. You are charming, gregarious and mingle easily with a broad mix of personalities. In other words, Alder signs get along with everybody and everybody loves to hang around with you. This might be because Alder’s are easily confident and have a strong self-faith. This self-assurances is infectious and other people recognize this quality in you instantly. Alder Celtic tree astrology signs are very focused and dislike waste. Consequently, they can see through superficialities and will not tolerate fluff. Alder people place high value on their time, and feel that wasting time is insufferable. They are motivated by action and results. Alder’s pair well with Hawthorns, Oaks or even Birch signs.
Willow – The Observer
April 15 – May 12
If you are a Willow sign, you are ruled by the moon, and so your personality holds hands with many of the mystical aspects of the lunar realm. This means you are highly creative, intuitive (highly psychic people are born under the sign of the Willow) and intelligent. You have a keen understanding of cycles, and you inherently know that every situation has a season. This gives you a realistic perspective of things, and also causes you to be morepatient than most tree signs. With your intelligence comes a natural ability to retain knowledge and you often impress your company with the ability to expound on subjects from memory. Willow Celtic tree astrology signs are bursting with potential, but have a tendency to hold themselves back for fear of appearing flamboyant or overindulgent. It is your powers of perception that ultimately allow your true nature to shine, and what leads you to success in life. Willow signs join well with the Birch and the Ivy.
Hawthorn – The Illusionist
May 13 – June 9
Hawthorn signs in Celtic tree astrology are not at all what they appear to be. Outwardly, they appear to be a certain persona, while on the inside Hawthorn’s are quite different. They put the term “never judge a book by its cover” to the test. They live seemingly average lives while on the inside they carry fiery passions and inexhaustiblecreative flame. They are well adjusted and can adapt to most life situations well – making themselves content and comforting others at the same time. You are naturally curious, and have an interest in a broad range of topics. You are an excellent listener, and people seek you out as an outlet to release their burdens. You have a healthy sense of humor, and have a clear understanding of irony. You tend to see the big picture, and have amazing insight – although you typically won’t give yourself enough credit for your observations. Hawthorn signs match up nicely with Ash and Rowan’s.
Oak – The Stabilizer
June 10 – July 7
Those born under the Celtic tree astrology sign of the Oak have a special gift of strength. They are protective people and often become a champion for those who do not have a voice. In other words, the Oak is the crusader and the spokesperson for the underdog. Nurturing, generous and helpful, you are a gentle giant among the Celtic zodiac signs. You exude an easy confidence and naturally assume everything will work out to a positive outcome. You have a deep respect for history and ancestry, and many people with this sign become teachers. You love to impart your knowledge of the past to others. Oak signs have a need for structure, and will often go to great lengths to gain the feeling of control in their lives. Healthy Oak signs live long, full, happy lives and enjoy large family settings and are likely to be involved with large social/community networks. Oak signs pair off well with the Ash and Reed, and are known to harmoniously join with Ivy signs too.
Holly – The Ruler
July 8 – August 4
Among the Celtic tree astrology signs the Holly is one of regal status. Noble, and high-minded, those born during the Holly era easily take on positions of leadership and power. If you are a Holly sign you take on challenges easily, and you overcome obstacles with rare skill and tact. When you encounter setbacks, you simply redouble your efforts and remain ever vigilant to obtain your end goals. Very seldom are you defeated. This is why many people look up to you and follow you as their leader. You are competitive and ambitious even in the most casual settings. You can appear to be arrogant but in actuality you’re just very confident in your abilities. Truth be known, you are quite generous, kind and affectionate (once people get to know you). Highly intelligent, you skate through academics where others may struggle. Because many things come to you so easily, you may have a tendency to rest on your laurels. In other words, if not kept active, you may slip into an unhealthy and lazy lifestyle. Holly signs may look to Ash and Elder signs for balance and partnership.
Hazel – The Knower
August 5 – September 1
If you are born under the energy of the Hazel, you are highly intelligent, organized and efficient. Like the Holly, you are naturally gifted in academia, and excel in the classroom. You also have the ability to retain information and can recall, recite and expound on subjects you’ve memorized with amazing accuracy. You know your facts, and you are always well informed. This sometimes makes you appear like a know-it-all to others, but you can’t help that; you’re genuinely smart and usually know the right course of action because of your impressive knowledge base. You have an eye for detail, and like things to be “just so.” Sometimes this need for order and control can lead to compulsive behaviors if left unchecked. You have a knack for numbers, science and things that utilize your analytical skills. You like rules, although you are typically making them rather than playing by them. The Celtic tree astrology sign of Hazel joins harmoniously with Hawthorn and Rowan’s.
Vine – The Equalizer
September 2 – September 29
Vine signs are born within the autumnal equinox, which makes your personality changeable and unpredictable. You can be full of contradictions, and are often indecisive. But this is because you can see both sides of the story, and empathize with each equally. It is hard for you to pick sides because you can see the good points on each end. There are, however, areas in your life that you are quite sure about. These include the finer things of life like food, wine, music, and art. You have very distinctive taste, and are a connoisseur of refinement. Luxury agrees with you, and under good conditions you have a Midas touch for turning drab into dramatic beauty. You are charming, elegant, and maintain a level of class that wins you esteem from a large fan base. Indeed, you often find yourself in public places where others can admire your classic style and poise. Vine signs pair well with Willow and Hazel signs.
Ivy – The Survivor
September 30 – October 27
Among other cherished qualities of the Ivy Celtic tree astrology sign, most prized is your ability to overcome all odds. You have a sharp intellect, but more obvious is your compassion and loyalty to others. You have a giving nature, and are always there to lend a helping hand. You are born at a time of the waning sun so life can be difficult for you at times. This sometimes seems unfair because it appears that obstacles are coming at with no prompting on your part. Nevertheless, you endure troubling times with silent perseverance and soulful grace. Indeed, Ivy signs have a tendency to be deeply spiritual and cling to a deep-rooted faith that typically sees them trough adversity. You are soft spoken, but have a keen wit about you. You are charming, charismatic, and can effectively hold your own in most social settings. Ivy signs are attracted to the Celtic tree astrology sign of Oak and Ash signs.
Reed – The Inquisitor
October 28 – November 24
Reed signs among the Celtic tree astrology signs are the secret keepers. You dig deep inside to the real meaning of things and discover the truth hidden beneath layers of distraction. When there is a need to get to the heart of the matter, most certainly the Reed sign will find the core. You love a good story, and can be easily drawn in by gossip, scandals, legend and lore. These tendencies also make you an excellent historian, journalist, detective or archaeologist. You love people because they represent a diversity of meanings for you to interpret. You are adept at coaxing people to talking to you, and sometimes you can be a bit manipulative. However, you have a strong sense of truth and honor so most of your scheming is harmless. Reed people join well with other Reeds, Ash or Oak signs.
Elder – The Seeker
November 25 – December 23
Elder archetypes among Celtic tree astrology tend to be freedom-loving, and sometimes appear to be a bit wild to the other signs of the zodiac. In younger years you may have lived life in the fast lane, often identified as a “thrill seeker.” At the time of your birth the light of the sun was fast fleeting and so you take the same cue from nature. You are often misjudged as an outsider as you have a tendency to be withdrawn in spite of your extroverted nature. In actuality, you are deeply thoughtful with philosophical bent. You also tend to be very considerate of others and genuinely strive to be helpful. These acts of assistance are sometimes thwarted by your brutal honestly (which you openly share solicited or otherwise). Elder Celtic tree astrology signs fit well with Alder’s and Holly’s.

- Free Celtic Astrology Reading And Druid Horoscope Calculator. The Celtic Astrology Tree is also known as the Druid Astrology. This zodiac is based on a lunar calendar that comprises of 13 months and each month is characterized by a mystical tree. The Celts assigned each month to a tree and individuals born in that month were characterized by that particular tree. Each tree is also associated with the Ogham, the ancient Celtic alphabet.
An ancient mystical runic alphabet ‘Ogham’ led to the development of the Celtic astrology. Unlike the Western or the Egyptian astrology the Celtic astrology, also known as the Druid Sign, comprises of 13 zodiac signs. The Druids were known to have been the inhabitants of the British Isles around 1000B.C. who followed a lunar calendar consisting of 13 months.
The Celts visualized the universe in the form of a tree and for that reason they designated a particular tree, based on its magical properties, to each of the Moon phases in their lunar calendar. Each Celtic Zodiac corresponds to a particular tree and it is believed that an individual’s personality is marked by the different influences of the tree of the sign.
The thirteen astrology signs of Celtic Astrology are as follows: The Birch, The Rowan, The Ash, The Alder, The Willow, The Hawthorn, The Oak, The Holly, The Hazel, The Vine, The Ivy, The Reed and The Elder.
A Celtic Astrology reading gives you a detailed interpretation of the sign you belong to in the Celtic zodiac, your lucky colors, lucky month, lucky letter, lucky flower, lucky gemstone, ruling animal, ruling deity, ruling planet, your polarity and your class and also some eminent personality born under the sign
For centuries, Celtic symbols and signs held incredible power for the ancient Celts in every way of life.
Today, we can learn about this power and utilize it by learning the language of Celtic symbols.
The word “Celtic” refers to people who lived in Britain and Western Europe from 500 BC and 400 AD. Celts were of the Iron Age and lived in small villages which were led by warrior chiefs.
The written records remaining from the Celts of Europe are scant, therefore signs and symbols can be hard to determine and trace. Many facts come by way of the Romans, who conquered the Celtic lands during the rise of the Roman Empire.
Regardless, thanks to time-honored traditions, (like story-telling) enough history was salvaged, and the Celtic heritage remains strong

Celtic Animal Signs
Exploring Celtic Animal Signs and the Celtic Zodiac: This page on Celtic animal signs is an extension of the Celtic tree astrology section. I’ve selected each Celtic sign according to their prominence and affiliation with the full moon within each segment of the Celtic (lunar) year. The Celts honored the rhythms of Nature, and observed different flavors of their environment according to the season.Like our Native American kin, the full moon in each month held a special personality. To know more clearly what I mean by this, (check out this page devoted to Native American full moons and their personalities).
I cannot say the ancient Celts designated zodiac totem animals according to the time and day of a kinsman/kinswoman’s birth. However, I can attest the Celts were undeniably bound to the animal world. In short, there seems to be no separation between Celtic-kind and animal-kind.
Cast your mind back to the time of the Celts, and observe: Their breath uniting with bright, living forests. Their Celtic eyes flickering with the flittering feathers from the bird realm. Their hearts pounding in rhythm with the wild beasts of the wood. This is how we know our ancient Celtic ancestors embraced animal signs and attributes.Indeed, no distinction between man and nature is made in Celtic ideology. Just as all prime people know, there is no delineation. There is only one.
In that energetic spirit of oneness, I invite you connect with your own lunar Celtic animal sign. Explore the possibilities your lunar totems have for you. Further, explore all the animal personalities in the Celtic year. Doing this might expand your awareness about the people around you, the animals we resonate with, and the glory of our universe.
I hope you enjoy these perspectives on Celtic animal signs as much as I did while writing them. Please note: There are many copy-cats out there. This page was created by Avia and is 100% original.

Seldom do we see more focus in the Celtic animal signs than that of the hawk. When these signs see something they want, they go after it with a force that is remarkable. If, however, they aren’t interested in a project, they will fly off to other more interesting prospects. They care deeply for wisdom, and often focus on sharing that knowledge with others. They can be very philanthropic and generous. Hawks have a keen sense of balance, and they navigate through life with an internal “true north” that creates an uncanny integrity within them. They are open minded and philosophical. Although they entertain all manner of hypotheses, they are strongly opinionated (that inner “true north” thing). That is not to say they cannot be persuaded.

Celtic Animal Zodiac Signs and Meanings
You're probably familiar with Celtic Tree Astrology, but did you know that the Celts also used animal zodiac signs?
A Guide to Celtic Animal Zodiac Signs and Meanings
The Celts were closely tied to nature. They followed the seasons, based their zodiac on the Lunar cycle, and placed special importance on trees and animals. (Check out this page on the Celtic Tree of Life to learn more about how the Celts were connected to nature.)
The Celts saw the animal world as being closely connected to their own. Animals were thought to have specific qualities and characteristics. Over time, these qualities and characteristics evolved to become specific meanings the Celts associated with each type of animal.
The Celts observed the behavior of animals and humans, noticing a correlation between the Celtic animal meanings and the Celtic tree zodiac signs. Each Celtic tree zodiac sign was assigned a corresponding Celtic animal zodiac sign.
In this way, your Celtic animal zodiac sign is an extension of your Celtic tree zodiac sign. Your Celtic animal sign's meaning and symbols provide further insight into your personality and behavior.

Druidic Symbols And Celtic Astrology Animals
Let me introduce you to an interesting area of Celtic lore. It’s a fantastic European Druidic astrology grouping with an ancient history going back many centuries.
Celt animal collection
Every culture has a different set of spirit animals or druid symbols for each cycle. This makes sense since the spirit animals around Native American culture, for example, will be different than Greek or Celtic. However, a strong focus on nature and their environment mean not only are there plant and tree signs that act as a Zodiac match with your birth, but also animal symbols, as well. The Celts are well known for their mystical and spiritual side, and the Druids remain a symbol of mystery and mysticism to this day. If you are interested in learning more about the Zodiac signs, then just read on to learn all about the meanings of each of the totem signs and discover how they were honoured and interpreted by the ancient Celt peoples.
let’s find out more about spirit animals and what the represent.
Introducing the Celtic Zodiac animal signs
The Stag (aka The Deer)
December 24th – January 20th
Western Sign Equivalent: Capricorn
If your first thought, when you hear someone mention a stag, is royalty, then you’re not far off! A stag is a very powerful symbol in this society’s belief, and The Stag is no less prominent! Known for an air of nobility and an incredible honesty, stags are great supporters for new projects.
Common zodiac traits include being patient, thorough, and persistent. They can be proud, but that pride is earned from their natural hard work that allows stags to time and time again succeed where all others have failed. When they truly believe in a vision, they cannot be deterred!
January 21st – February 17th
Western Zodiac Equal: Aquarius
Cats don’t mind being on the fringe so much, as it’s an excellent place for them to observe everything taking place. Cats are known for having almost a 6th sense when it comes to seeing the motivations or the emotional undercurrents of what is going on in any given situation.
Cats are known for having the ability to see things in a completely different light, and they have absolutely no fear of taking the road less travelled. This doesn’t mean that cats can’t figure out a situation as they are very rational by character, and their tendency to observe means they pick up on many details that others will miss.
Cats are very creative thanks in part to their unorthodox view of the world and tend to be kind and intelligent although sometimes they come across as a little aloof or out of touch due to being caught up in their own mental world.
The Adder (aka The Snake)
February 18th – March 17th
Western Equivalent: Pisces
The Celtic peoples would have understood the story of Adam and Eve quite well as snakes have a reputation for being natural communicators who can be extremely persuasive. Curious and always studying how interactions work in the immediate world around them, they can be amazing for rallying a group to a cause.
Snakes can also be very spontaneous and unpredictable, sometimes not even understanding their own motivations for a sudden urge or action. This can be exciting but also comes with a dark side: snakes don’t like it when things don’t go their way and can be extremely uncooperative if confronted harshly or pushed towards an action they disagree with.
March 18th – April 14th
European Sign Equivalent: Aries
Some totem spirit animals just have the same reputation in every culture, and the fox seems to be one. Foxes are seen as cunning and sly, with the type of guile and intelligence that allows them to work a room. When you need someone to get you into (and out of) fantastic adventures, you’ll be hard-pressed to do
better than a fox.
Foxes can put some people off because of their sly reputation as well as an intense spirit that can’t be dominated. Foxes do display strong courage and although they don’t often show a sensitive and emotionally open side, foxes are extremely loyal and if they’ve chosen to honour you as a friend, you have a loyal friend for the rest of your life.
The Cow or The Bull
April 15th – May 12th
European Zodiac: Taurus
These spirit animals are known for broad shoulders and as a large and solid rock, and those zodiac traits carry over into the Celtic Zodiac signs they represent. The three most common characteristics to describe this sign are strong, stable, and caring. They can also be incredibly stubborn in defending those they love.
Cows/Bulls are known for being trustworthy individuals and having an incredible intuition. If someone is lying, they’ll know about it. Because of that intuition, they sometimes understand the bigger picture of what’s going on before others do and can come across as moody or be having a sudden swing in temperament for no reason. The truth is that often they’re just upset before everyone else is.
May 13th – June 9th
Western Sign Equivalent: Gemini
Flexible, resourceful, and adaptable are three of the most common words used to describe a seahorse. Like the animal of their sign, they might not be the biggest or the strongest, but seahorses are clever and know how to adapt to almost any situation.
Seahorses often work well as lawyers or accountants because they understand complex systems like law and finance, and they know how to pull odds in their favour by using technicalities or loopholes.
Personality-wise, seahorses love being loved and feel very comfortable giving back affection. This makes them well-liked in general and helps explain how their sharp minds don’t conflict at all with their overall popularity.
June 10th – July 7th
Traditional Zodiac: Cancer
This summer sign brings an interesting set of traits with it. Although wrens have a strong sense of moral responsibility, honour, and integrity, they don’t let this get in the way of their normally sunny dispositions. They love to cheer up their friends and are invaluable friends and comrades during difficult times.
Despite being natural caregivers and devoted friends, wrens work best on their own and are often self-employed because they are exceptional self-starters who know how to motivate themselves without help.
Balance is hard for the Wren. They are natural leaders who feel the weight of moral responsibility to others, but they have a free bird heart that would rather be travelling aimlessly without a single care in the world.
July 8th – August 4th
Western Symbol Equivalent: Leo
The horse is a strong sign, and those bearing this Celtic symbol generally do it proud. Horses are powerful, exuberant, and very competitive. They don’t stay to the outside like cats or use cunning like foxes, they like to charge right in. Horses have a lot of talent and can normally back up their bravado, especially in the business world! Their boisterous and gregarious nature helps!
When it comes to planning out a strategy, they know how to navigate a forward path and are equally comfortable leading the team or being a part of a team as long as they get the recognition they deserve.
Horses tend to be headstrong and they don’t shrink away from adverse times, making them a great and welcome addition to almost any group, especially when there are plenty of challenges afoot.
The Salmon (aka The Fish)
August 5th – September 1st
European Symbol: Partial Virgo
The salmon is an animal zodiac sign that represents two worlds. Many salmons are introverts who need quiet time to dive deep within themselves for the answer, and inspiration often comes in the form of dreams or waking visions. They are quietly very intuitive and embrace a unique view of the world.
Many salmon tend to be artistic in nature and although their inside world can seem so far away the rest of us can’t follow, it makes for brilliant observations, poetry, art, and overall inspirational reactions when they come out of their world back to join the rest of us.
September 2nd – September 29th
Western Sign Equivalent: Partial Virgo
Swans are natural aristocrats who have reached their place through spiritual growth and transformation. Swans tend to be eloquent, refined and pride themselves on high taste, not to mention a sharp eye for the beauty around them.
Swans can sometimes come across as detached, but the truth is they are very composed and often adhere tightly to a public code of conduct. They are still very passionate, especially as lovers, and they care deeply about the details. They simply aren’t as openly passionate about their feelings as say the wolf, the horse, or the wren.
September 30th – October 27th
European Equivalence: Libra
Butterflies are among the most social of all the totem signs, they are gentle and caring souls but you must understand they simply don’t like to be held down for too long. They are dreamers who know how to brighten up anyone’s day and their natural empathy makes them extremely easy to befriend.
Butterflies might not always be there with undying loyalty like the wolf of the fox, but they always care and they will always make your day a little better for having been there.
The Wolf (sometimes referred to as The Hound)
October 28th – November 24th
Same As Western Sign: Scorpio
The term “Lone Wolf” can easily apply to many wolves, but remember that wolves are pack animals and they will be extremely loyal to a group – but a wolf chooses his/her pack. If a wolf appears anti-social, it just might be they don’t see you as a good fit for them in particular.
A wolf who accepts you as part of their inner circle will appear extremely social and gregarious with you and others they consider close.
Often misunderstood, there is still little doubt among anyone that wolves are brave, utterly fearless, and honourable with a capital “H.”
When you need an unflappable hero, an uncompromising warrior guided by honour, or someone to push you through to the end, a wolf is your best bet. Wolves have strong beliefs and are devoted to you as long as you’re in line with them, but a wolf can also be stubborn to the point of absolutely refusing to compromise.
Maybe more than any other animal sign, the same traits that can make the wolf an amazing force can also be their downfall. The stubbornness can be strength or weakness, depending on how things play out during any face-off.
The Hawk or The Falcon
November 25th – December 23rd
Equal To Western Sign: Sagittarius
Hawks and falcons are renowned for their eyesight in nature, and the same trait can be said of those who claim this sign. They care about the lofty view that comes with wisdom and knowledge and seeks to share both with others.
Those under this animal zodiac sign also can spot a clear target from a long way away, and pursue it with a direct single-minded force that even gets the attention of a wolf. However if there isn’t anything that grabs their full passion they fill simply float from one project to another, one thought to another, until that major idea demands their full focus.
Although very open to new ideas, thoughts, and philosophies, you can count on hawks/falcons to always have an inherent moral and directional compass that always sees them returning back to a certain direction.
While falcons/hawks love to debate and hear ideas, they can be hard to convince as any idea strongly opposed to that internal compass will have a hard time gaining traction.
These are the 13 signs of the Celtic Zodiac calendar. In some of these signs, it’s obvious to see what the traits are while others can be quite surprising. Some traits are clearly more inner focused than outer focused (Salmon, Falcon/Hawk, Wolf, Swan) while there are signs that go the other direction and absolutely excel in the social setting (Adder/Snake, Butterfly, Fox, Horse) and others are some combination of the two.
Druidic symbols tend to reflect the fact of how heavily tied to nature their philosophies and beliefs were. These aren’t two separate things but nature is intertwined in everything from religion and astrology to everyday life and interaction.
For those who are also interested in how the zodiac animals line up to the Celtic plant or tree signs, they partner up thus:
Stag or Deer – Birch
Cat – Rowan
Adder – Ash
Fox – Alder
Cow or Bull – Willow
Seahorse – Hawthorn
Wren – Oak
Horse – Holly
Salmon or Fish – Hazel
Swan – Vine
Butterfly – Ivy
Wolf or Hound – Reed
Falcon or Hawk – Elder
This is all the information you need to get a good feel for every one of the animal signs in the Celtic animal Zodiac and to follow up on the tree signs and more. This is a fascinating calendar, and one worth even more study!

Celtic Zodiac Signs & Astrology
Meanings, Traits, Personality, & Compatibility
It seems that nearly every culture around the world had ways to honor the lessons from nature and integrate them to help with daily life. The Celts were no exception to this concept. They observed their environment, watching for omens and signs that could guide their actions and interactions. Similarly to Native American tradition this observation lead to creating a divinatory system that followed monthly moons. Each moon had a tree and an animal assigned.
Depending on which month in which you were born you could determine certain personality traits for yourself and your Tribe. Remember, to the Celts the spiritual world and the mundane were inexplicably and forever connected. They did not compartmentalize life as we do. All is ONE and ONE is all.
By studying the Celtic Animal Zodiac signs and meanings we can help ourselves re-attune to nature in meaningful ways. Mother Nature, her cycles, the mythology that holds hidden meanings to many of life’s nagging questions are all a part of this system. From birth to re-birth, from humankind to Divine kind the ties that bind us impact our lives in very real and powerful ways every moment. The Celtic Animal signs resonate with those influences.
The Sacred animals of Celtic tradition come from the world in which they lived. These ordinary creatures became superior in spiritual form and in the stories of the Celts. The Shaman of the tribe was the bridge between everyday tribe members and this magical world. The connection between animals and the tribe was so deep that some believed that certain members became animal spirits upon their death, or descended from animals.

Remarkably Accurate Interpretation and Meaning of Celtic Zodiac Signs
The ancient system of astrology developed by the Celts had a very deep meaning. Although this system is not universally accepted by everyone, learning about it is quite interesting. AstrologyBay lists the 13 signs of the Celtic zodiac along with their meanings.
Zodiac Sign Symbolism
Celtic astrology assigns a tree and one or more animals for every zodiac sign. The tree is assigned in such a way that its natural energy matches the nature of the people belonging to that particular zodiac sign.
When the Celts developed their zodiac signs, an interesting theory went behind the whole process. They developed these symbols based on the lunar (moon) calendar, which has 13 months. They associated each month with a tree, because they believed that each tree had a unique energy of its own that corresponded to the month. This led to the birth of the Celtic zodiac tree signs. They also linked animals with these tree symbols, meaning that ever lunar month had a tree sign and an animal sign.
These 13 Druid zodiac signs signified the conscious and unconscious mind. Since the moon represented the latter, the trees came to be associated with the same. Likewise, the animal signs were linked to the conscious mind, and each sign signified a linking between the two minds. Each tree sign was assigned a Celtic letter known as an Ogham, which described the energy of that particular tree. We are sure your interest in this form of astrology has peaked by now. So, find your birth date from the following paragraphs, and see what your Celtic zodiac sign says about you. However, remember that this is a generalized description. It may match your personality completely or not match it at all. Every person is unique, so no zodiac reading will ever be accurate.
