This zodiac is an ancient system of symbols based on cycles of the moon. Ideally, a Celtic Year is divided into 13 lunar months. Each month is linked closely to a tree sacred to the druids. Each symbol of Celtic Tree Astrology exhibits certain magical qualities whose secret mysteries come from the Ogham tree. The Ogham tree is an attribute of Ogma, the God of Poetry and consists of a covert Shamanic alphabet. Here is a quick rundown of the zodiac signs and the lucky talismans that come with each one of them.
