There are many unique styles of astrology all around the world. There are extremely popular ones like Vedic astrology and Western astrology, the slightly more niche, like Chinese astrology, and ones that are lesser known in the arena of spirituality and divination, such as Celtic astrology.

Celtic culture and mythology are very deeply connected to the earth. It also has its own pantheon of gods like Odin, Thor, Loki, Freyja, and among others. Celtic astrology is derived from this rich cultural heritage and druidic belief system, with Celtic tree astrology just one branch of it.


According to Celtic tree astrology, the symbol of the tree represents the entire universe. Their roots represent the past, the trunk the present, and the ever-unfolding branches represent the future. Based on this (and the 13 lunar cycles of a year), Celtic tree astrology correlates each person's personality to one Celtic tree according to their date of birth.

Here's what your Celtic tree astrology sign says about you.
