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.

  1. Ha ha – surprise!
    That’s so interesting all of that. My stupid neighbours hacked all their trees down – I hope they were all Hawthorn trees cos they’re rude idiots.
    Is this Govannan’s mead available on mail order? I could use a swift pint of that now and then.
    I love the painting of the goblet. I love your style. You should illustrate books. I looked at your website and there’s TONS of excellent paintings on there. No Henri merch though which was massively disappointing. Henri gninja onesies, Henri on his swing. Henri making tea. “Gnomes do it better” t-shirts. Just some ideas off the top of my head.

      • Typical Henri.
        Remember your friends 😀
        No, never good cutting down trees. It’s the new craze here. Britain is being paved over to cram more and more people in. It’s horrible to see the countryside gradually disappear.
