Celtic Tree Month of Oak

10th June – 7th July Birthdays
Oak Tree/White Horse

The Oak is the most sacred tree of the Druids and rules the light part of the year (the Oak King). The Oak represents wisdom, strength, longevity and protection. The Summer Solstice (Alban Hefin) occurs in this month and as the longest day marks a turning point in the year, it is also a time for spiritual exploration. The β€œDuir” (door) opens to self-realization. The White Horse is a symbol of fertility and spiritual power. Those born under this sign are said to be optimistic, determined, truthful, creative, are natural leaders and have generous spirits.

Celtic Zodiac Prints are great birthday and new baby gifts! I can personalise the print with the recipient’s name.

Oak Tree/White Horse Print on parchment is available in 2 sizes here on magickmermaid.com


~About Celtic Lunar Astrology and Druid Tree Lore~
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. Morgaine, what beautiful art πŸ™‚ Would love to see this White Horse and others from you on tarot cards. I was interested in buying some art from you, but, sadly, the postage to the UK is too much for me. (Why do they take so much?!)
    Have a lovely weekend. Sun is shining here in Norfolk, England today, Faith πŸ˜€ xo
