Celtic Zodiac Signs & Astrology
Meanings, Traits, Personality, & Compatibility

It seems that nearly every culture around the world had ways to honor the lessons from nature and integrate them to help with daily life. The Celts were no exception to this concept. They observed their environment, watching for omens and signs that could guide their actions and interactions. Similarly to Native American tradition this observation lead to creating a divinatory system that followed monthly moons. Each moon had a tree and an animal assigned.

Depending on which month in which you were born you could determine certain personality traits for yourself and your Tribe. Remember to the Celts the spiritual world and the mundane were inexplicably and forever connected. They did not compartmentalize life as we do. All is ONE and ONE is all.

By studying the Celtic Animal Zodiac signs and meanings we can help ourselves re-attune to nature in meaningful ways. Mother Nature, her cycles, the mythology that holds hidden meanings to many of life’s nagging questions are all a part of this system. From birth to re-birth, from humankind to Divine kind the ties that bind us impact our lives in very real and powerful ways every moment. The Celtic Animal signs resonate with those influences.

The Sacred animals of Celtic tradition come from the world in which they lived. These ordinary creatures became superior in spiritual form and in the stories of the Celts. The Shaman of the tribe was the bridge between everyday tribe members and this magical world. The connection between animals and the tribe was so deep that some believed that certain members became animal spirits upon their death, or descended from animals.
