Birth month symbols
Wicca Teachings - The Celtic Animal Zodiac. The Celts honored the rhythms of Nature, and observed different flavors of their environment according to the season. Like our Native American kin, the full Moon in each month held a special personality. They had a Tree Zodiac, a Moon Zodiac and an Animal Zodiac. The Animal Zodiac is based on the animal that is most prominent within the season and the month of the persons birth. Below is a brief description of personality traits from the signs.
The ancient Celts didn't have tree signs, but they were skilled astronomers and most likely used some form of predictive astrology. We do know they had lunar calendars(e.g.,the Coligny calendar), although scholars disagree as to whether the start of the month was the new moon or the full moon. There is no agreement as to what symbols were used by the druids who created the calendars, but most historians think it is similar to the old Vedic/Hindu cosmological system.
