About Druid Tree Lore and Celtic Lunar Astrology
People have been marking the passage of time by the phases of the moon for millennia. Although it is impossible to say for certain because the lore and traditions were not written, many historians believe that both the Celts and Druids used a 13 month lunar calendar.  The months and symbols differ from the solar calendar with which most of us are familiar. Druidic horoscopes are often mentioned in legends.

Trees have long been a source of sacred folklore with each chosen to represent the months and having its own magickal properties. The Ogham symbols may have been devised by ancient Druids. As several of the symbols refer to trees, the ogham alphabet is often called the Tree Alphabet. These symbols are included next to the tree names which are shown in both English and Old Irish. The animal symbols are my interpretation based on various sources. The ruling planets of each sign are also noted.  The information provided here is an introduction to the wealth of knowledge concerning Druid teachings and Celtic lore.

  1. Ah the little lamb. Nice dogsbody (I know how he feels)
    It’s hard getting those legs, paws, and middle right but you nailed it. You can draw anything you can.
    I always learn new things from your SPLENDIDO blog posts. You make me want to carve out a pumpkin and put it on the gatepost to scare the uninvited spirits away(and live uninvited people too preferably).
    But I haven’t got a pumpkin to piss in, nor a window to glow it out of, so I will watch a scary film instead. The Shining seems appropriate. Although now I remember I’m not a fan of horror films so maybe I’ll watch Scooby Doo instead.
    Like yikes Scoob, let’s get out of here!
    Ya ya ya ya…
    (bongo drums, running, going nowhere with ghost getting closer)
    I always assumed I’d turn out like Fred, but now I’d be lucky to pass for Shaggy.
