The Alder symbolises the balance of male and female principles in each individual. The Hawk is a bird of omen and can signify victory (forces of light or day) or defeat (forces of darkness or night. The Vernal Equinox (Alban Eiler), the moment when day and night are of equal length, is celebrated during this month. Those born under this sign are said to be courageous, confident, sincere, successful, good in a crisis and inspire loyalty.

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.

    It just occurred to me that these would make such original presents for a birthday.
