Sexy Druid Warriors always aid one’s interest in ye olde Celtic practices.
It has it’s own Zodiac & we’re all trees! I think it’s beautiful, though sadly incomplete…We are soon in the time of the Hazel Tree:
“20 July – 16 August
The Hazel was the tree of wisdom and it was a crime punishable by death to fell one. It was thought magical skills and knowledge could be gained from eating Hazel nuts. Hazel people are artistic. They have lively, analytical minds and make inspiring teachers. Imaginative, they are radical and idealistic thinkers.
The Ruling Deity – The Sea God Manannan Mac Lir, a master of disguise, rules this sign.
The Druic Animal – Salmon – To the Celts, the Salmon is the oldest and wisest animal, symbolizing inspiration – Hazels need to express their creativity or they can become morbid and introspective
Planetary Ruler – Mercury
Ogham Word – Coll”
YOU can go read the rest at the above Celtic Astro link. Or just Google but be aware that peeps bicker a LOT over Celtic Astrology. And if you click on the witch-burning link, that damned book (Malleus Malificarum) was like a best-seller. Can you believe it? I read the whole thing one go on a day long ago in a sterile but comforting university library & found it so scary. It’s so dry and legal. But imagine your local council using it as their handbook. I had to keep looking up to remind myself that i was surrounded by trees, freedom, laws and relaxed students of all races & sexual identity, religion et al.
And what Tree are U? Does it FIT?
