If you have ever wondered about Celtic astrology, and it's connection or similarity to other forms of astrology, there are actually many similarities and differences. The similarities the focus upon certain constellations in the sky that travel the ecliptic, each represented by a certain animal that is correlated to a person's birth. Each animal will have characteristics which will theoretically be shared by those that are born under each zodiac sign. One primary difference between Celtic astrology, and all other forms of astrology, is the connection between humans and trees.
The Celtic Culture
Although this culture is very famous for the Druids, it is also well known because of its dedication to revering nature. These people believed that there was an interconnection between human beings and nature, a balance that needed to be maintained. The Celtic's were also very concerned with trees, believing them to play a large role in the daily affairs of mankind. They are also representative of certain times of the year when people are born and play a large role in Celtic astrology.
Trees And Celtic Astrology
There are 13 trees that are associated with the Celt system of forecasting (Example), and trees were actually the original zodiac symbols that were associated with a person's birth. Each tree has a symbolic meaning, as well as what is called an Ogham symbol and name, each with its own characteristics. Some of the trees that are part of this type of astrology include the birch, Rowand tree, ash tree, and the oak. Each of these trees possesses certain characteristics such as intuition, endurance, strength, nobility and passion. Based upon the date of your birth and where it fell within the lunar calendar, each of the trees would represent a certain period of time throughout the year where, once a person was born, they would then be associated with that tree and its characteristics.
The goal of any form of astrology is to provide some type of guideline a roadmap, one that is directly connected to your personality traits. The zodiac signs of Celtic astrology, as well as the trees that are also representative of the day a person is born, can help people understand what path to take. Just like any other form of astrology, it's all about feeling a connection to the universe around you. There seems to be a definite connection between the date of a person's birth, and the characteristics of these signs whether you are looking at zodiac signs in the sky or the trees that are representative of the time when a person is born.
