If you are a fan of astrology, be more than likely have seen different astrological charts that have been made which are typically representative of either 12 months or 12 years. For instance, when looking at Western astrology, it is divided into 12 different sections, each representative of not only a month, but also one of the 12 zodiac constellations. In Chinese astrology, there are also 12 parts, each represented by animals as well, but they are representative of years. A very interesting form of astrology is Celtic astrology which can be interpreted in a couple different ways. Some people use different animals for each zodiac sign, whereas another form of Celtic astrology is representative of tree symbols. This article will address Celtic astrology and explain what each of the tree symbols means.
What Is Celtic Astrology?
Celtic astrology is thought to have originated from the Druids thousands of years ago. In their religion, trees represent a sacred place in which spirits actually reside. There is some debate as to which Celtic astrological system is the most accurate, with some people quoting ancient Irish writings whereas others will look at ancient Greek texts. Essentially, it is based around a lunar calendar which is composed of 13 months. It is centered around the moon which is representative of the subconscious mind, hidden mysteries, and your past lives. The goal of Celtic astrology is to remember past lives and to build upon the knowledge you have acquired before.
