The Celtic Tree Calendar is a 13 month lunar calendar where each month is allocated a tree with special teachings.
The elder, a shrub of the honeysuckle family, represents the 13th lunation —October 3 – 30th.
Each tree is represented by an astrological sign:
The astrology: Libra —September 22 – October 23
“I balance” —symbol—scales of justice —balance between night and day
Keywords: harmony, negotiation, love, companionship, partnership and justice.
The elder theme is “transformation, focus on healing and self-change —the soul’s journey.”
The birch tree represents the 1st lunation – November 1-28th.
The astrology: Scorpio —October 22–November 21
“I create” —symbols —scorpion, eagle and/or phoenix
Keywords: resourceful, secretive, passionate, intense, psychology, investigation, death, resurrection
The birch theme is “a doorway into our strong, innate inner knowing.”
”Remember paradise is protecting this planet in all its beauty and perfection in doing so you protect our species and all life.”
