You’ve probably heard about zodiac sign astrology, but have you ever heard of Celtic tree astrology?  This type of astrology was created by members of the high-ranking professional class in ancient Celtic cultures, known as Druids.

Celtic tree astrology was designed using the natural connection that Druids had to the Earth cycles, as well as the sacred knowledge held by the trees.

Here are the 13 tree signs as described by Celtic tree astrology:

 

1.  Birch — The Achiever (December 24 – January 20)

These few weeks mark a time of darkness with little sunlight.  The Druids believed that Birch babies were always stretching themselves thin, trying to find the light.  Birch babies are said to be highly driven, motivational and ambitious.  They’re often resilient, natural-born leaders with the ability to win others over due to their charm.

 

2.  Rowan — The Thinker (January 21 – February 17)

Rowans are known for their philosophical, visionary minds.  They are creative and original with a unique inner passion and deep motivation.  Rowans often have a cool exterior that can transform energy in tense situations.  Their unique nature allows them to be highly influential.  These out-of-the-box thinkers dislike restriction and conformity.

 

3.  Ash — The Enchanter (February 18 – March 17)

According to Celtic tree astrology, Ash are enchanting, imaginative, artistic free-thinkers.  They see the world in vivid color.  Ash can be moody at times, but they are inspired by nature.  They enjoy art, writing, science and spirituality.  Some view Ash as reclusive and introverted, but they simply love the world they created for themselves.  They are both idealistic and realistic.

4.  Alder — The Trailblazer (March 18 – April 14)

Alders are known to blaze their own trails with passion, often gaining followers and supporters along the way.  They are charming and easy to talk to, confident, focused and self-assured.  They have no tolerance for nonsense and they don’t like to waste time.  Their brave, competitive nature often makes them great parents, leaders and entrepreneurs.

5.  Willow — The Observer (April 15 – May 12)

Celtic astrology sees Willows as very connected to the moon.  They are highly creative, intelligent, intuitive and realistic.  Willows have a great understanding the cycles and seasons, which allows some of them to have psychic abilities.  They love to learn and they constantly seek new knowledge, which makes them great teachers.  Their fears will hold them back if they let them.

6.  Hawthorn — The Illusionist (May 13 – June 9)

Hawthorns tend to be very different on the inside than the outside.  They can be difficult to read, but they are typically very passionate, creative and curious.  Hawthorns don’t judge, which makes them great listeners and insightful friends.  They are able to see the big picture.  Hawthorns are often great performers due to their illusionist persona.

7.  Oak — The Stabilizer (June 10 – July 7)

Oak signs are known to be strong, protective, generous and nurturing.  They are highly optimistic and they believe that everything has its way of working out.  Oaks enjoy learning about history and ancestry, which makes them great teachers.  They also crave structure.  Oaks love having large families and they enjoy being involved in their communities.

8.  Holly — The Ruler (July 8 – August 4)

The Druids saw Holly signs as noble, natural leaders.  They were people of power who welcomed a good challenge.  Holly signs are able to tackle any obstacles that get in their way.  They’re competitive, ambitious, confident and dedicated to achieving their goals.  Holly signs are often perfectionists.  They are natural leaders, but they also don’t mind being in a supportive role.

9.  Hazel — The Knower (August 5 – September 1)

In Celtic astrology, Hazels are intelligent, organized, efficient and academic.  They have excellent memories, which allows them to excel at reciting and recalling information.  Hazels might appear to be know-it-all’s, but they truly like to be well-informed.  They can be extremely detail-oriented, sometimes to an obsessive or compulsive degree.  Hazels enjoy doing anything that involves numbers, science and analytics, which makes them great planners and organizers.

10.  Vine — The Equalizer (September 2 – September 29)

The Druids believed that Vines had fluid and changeable personalities, just like the seasons.  They can be unpredictable and indecisive, which allows them to see both sides of a story.  They are often seen as very empathetic because they don’t like to pick sides.  Vines are a bit moody at times, but they can also be charming and elegant with a taste for the finer things, such as food, wine, music and art.

11.  Ivy — The Survivor (September 30 – October 27)

Ivy signs are compassionate, loyal and giving.  They are often soft-spoken, spiritual and charismatic.  They are born at a time of the “waning sun,” which led the Druids to believe that life may seem more difficult to them at times.  But Ivy signs are graceful in their ability overcome obstacles.  They have a steady stream of energy that allows them to hold their own.

12.  Reed — The Inquisitor (October 28 – November 24)

According to Celtic astrology, Reeds are great at keeping secrets.  They also love to uncover the truth.  Reeds dig deep to find the heart of the matter.  They love a good story, causing them to be drawn to gossip, scandals, legends and conspiracies.  This trait makes Reeds excellent journalists and detectives.  Reeds love people, because they represent mysteries to uncover.  They have a strong sense of truth and honor, and they can be jealous at times.

13.  Elder — The Seeker (November 25 – December 23)

Elders are free spirits and thrill-seekers, possibly because they are born at a time when the light is fleeting.  Elders may seem extroverted, but they can be withdrawn, thoughtful and philosophical.  They can also be very helpful, honest and outspoken.  Elders have a tendency to assume they’re always right, due to their intellectual nature.

DAVID WOLFE: “How Compatible Is Your Relationship According To Your Zodiac Sign?”

compatible-signs

No two zodiac signs approach relationships in quite the same way.  Capricorns, for example, hate vulnerability and experimentation while Aquarians welcome both with open arms.

Surely, then, a Capricorn and Aquarian could never get along in a relationship — right?

Wrong!  The truth is that any two signs — no matter the astrological distance between them — can form a lasting, meaningful relationship.  In this post we’ll be exploring the various types of zodiac relationships, what they provide and how you can make the most of each.

Let’s start with the most basic.

Same Sign Relationships

Dating someone with the same zodiac sign as you can feel sort of like dating a mirror at times.  The shared sign means you both possess many of the same values, quirks and insecurities.  Should you engage in such a relationship, prepare to learn many lessons regarding the art of self-acceptance.

Also prepare for awkward sibling-esque moments.  You can minimize these by maintaining your individuality in the relationship and putting effort into frequent romantic activities.

One Sign Apart

  • Aries: Pisces, Taurus
  • Taurus: Aries, Gemini
  • Gemini: Taurus, Cancer
  • Cancer: Gemini, Leo
  • Leo: Cancer, Virgo
  • Libra: Virgo, Scorpio
  • Scorpio, Libra, Sagittarius
  • Sagittarius: Scorpio, Capricorn
  • Aquarius: Capricorn, Pisces
  • Capricorn: Sagittarius, Aquarius
  • Pisces: Aquarius, Aries

As in our aforementioned Capricorn-Aquarius example, major differences in romantic approach begin to appear when you date someone even just one sign away from you.  To put it simply, if you want a dynamic relationship this is a good place to start looking.

Expect plenty of tension.  This will not be an ‘easy’ relationship.  But, when maintained properly, it will be quite a rewarding one when that tension boils over into exciting and explosive passion.

Patient, well-thought-out communication is key to success in a relationship between individuals one sign apart.  While partners will never totally understand each other, they can learn many things about human nature and romance by spending time together.

Two Signs Apart

  • Aries: Sagittarius, Aquarius
  • Taurus: Pisces, Cancer
  • Gemini: Aries, Leo
  • Cancer: Taurus, Virgo
  • Leo: Gemini, Libra
  • Virgo: Cancer, Scorpio
  • Libra: Leo, Sagittarius
  • Scorpio: Virgo, Capricorn
  • Sagittarius: Libra, Aquarius
  • Capricorn: Scorpio, Pisces
  • Aquarius: Sagittarius, Aries
  • Pisces: Capricorn, Taurus

The most successful ‘friends with benefits’ tend to reside in this category.  Both signs will always be represented by compatible elements.  For example, Libras are represented by air while Leos are characterized by fire.  The former needs the latter to burn.

Should individuals two signs apart find themselves in a genuine relationship, it will usually progress naturally out of a close friendship.  That said, should you engage in such a relationship, beware the friendship trap.  Make sure you find ways to keep the love spark going.

Three Signs Apart

  • Aries: Cancer, Capricorn
  • Taurus: Aquarius, Leo
  • Gemini: Pisces, Virgo
  • Cancer: Aries, Libra
  • Leo: Taurus, Scorpio
  • Virgo: Gemini, Sagittarius
  • Libra: Cancer, Capricorn
  • Scorpio: Leo, Aquarius
  • Sagittarius: Virgo, Pisces
  • Capricorn: Aries, Libra
  • Aquarius: Scorpio, Taurus
  • Pisces: Gemini, Sagittarius

Relationships in this category often lead to issues resembling parental conflicts (Mommy and Daddy issues).

Those who engage in such a relationship should prepare for clashes, with each side taking turns being the ‘parent’ and ‘child.’  But this dynamic is what keeps the relationship active.  Both people will learn about conflict and compromise in a way that helps them heal old wounds.  Also, when these two signs team up, they become an unstoppable force and are able to achieve anything!

Four Signs Apart

  • Aries-Leo-Sagittarius
  • Taurus-Virgo-Capricorn
  • Gemini-Libra-Aquarius
  • Cancer-Scorpio-Pisces

Mates in this category have signs of the same element.  This leads to a relationship abundant in harmony.  Partners feel no shame in exposing even the most embarrassing of personal details with one another.

It’s in such a relationship that one learns how to be vulnerable.  Should the relationship end, it will have provided each person with the confidence and willingness to go forward and open themselves up to future partners.

Care should be taken to maintain some mystery and not expose too much too soon.

Five Signs Apart

  • Aries: Virgo, Scorpio
  • Taurus: Libra, Sagittarius
  • Gemini: Scorpio, Capricorn
  • Cancer: Sag, Aquarius
  • Leo: Capricorn, Pisces
  • Virgo: Aquarius, Aries
  • Libra: Pisces, Taurus
  • Scorpio: Aries, Gemini
  • Sagittarius: Taurus, Cancer

When individuals five signs apart come together, the result is a truly odd relationship.  Observers will find themselves wondering how in the world such different people could ever come together so well.

And believe me, they are different; they’ve got nothing in common astrologically.  They may even have opposing ideas as to what a relationship should be.  But through work and dedication, each person can learn what service means in a relationship as they cater to one another’s needs.

Opposite Signs

  • Aries-Libra
  • Taurus-Scorpio
  • Gemini-Sagittarius
  • Cancer-Capricorn
  • Leo-Aquarius
  • Virgo-Pisces

Have you ever heard the term ‘opposites attract?’  That’s definitely the case when it comes to signs that reside across from one another on the zodiac wheel.  Such partners often make a great team, perfectly contrasting one another.

Should you engage in such a relationship, expect to gain a new sense of perspective.  Your opposite zodiac sign partner may ‘complete the picture,’ so to speak — providing you an understanding of the world that helps you better understand your place in it.

Which type of zodiac relationship are you in right now?  If you’re not in a relationship, which type appeals to you most? Share your thoughts on the topic in the comments!
