Celtic Tree Zodiac. This is just a bit of fun.
GORT/IVY - September 30 - October 27
This is just a bit of craic, it is based on a tree calender. I will start with September 30th to October 27th and post each corresponding month. Please don't take it seriously.
The Ivy Tree - Ivy people have incredible stamina!! They are also usually abundant in talent and win many honours. They have a sharp intellect and a matching sense of humour. On the more serious side they have a quiet kind of faith that believes in the natural balance of things. They are extremely loyal and accept responsibility for their own actions. They can however be extremely manipulative and can use their power ruthlessly when they desire. They tend to attract people with little or no morals and should keep this in mind when meeting new friends. They tend to be poor students; they are just not "book learners" and learn better by experience. They also tend to have very good luck!! In love Ivy people are extremely sensitive. They fall in and out of love at the drop of a hat!! Then, when IN love they can lean toward being clingy. They make generous and caring parents.
The Woody Nightshade.
Also known as Bittersweet, Scarlet Berry, Violet Bloom, Mad Dog's Berries the Woody Nightshade belongs to the Solanaceae, an immense family of plants which includes Belladonna, Henbane, Potato, Tomato, Peppers and Tobacco. The plant was so named by the ancient herbalists in order to distinguish it from the Deadly Nightshade. Shepherds once hung Woody Nightshade around the necks of their flocks as a charm against the "evil eye" and a necklace of its berries was found in the tomb of Tutankhamen, the Boy-King. Tradition dictated that if placed on the body, Woody Nightshade would dispel the memories of old loves and former sweethearts.
The Opal is a historically treasured gem and 6,000 year old Opal artefacts have been found in Kenyan caves. However, most are believed to be approximately 60 million years old (or more) and generally date back to the Cretaceous period when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Early races credited the Opal with magical qualities and traditionally, the Opal was said to aid its wearer in seeing possibilities. It was believed to clarify by amplifying and mirroring feelings, buried emotions and desires. It was also thought to lessen inhibitions and promote spontaneity.
The Butterfly - Celtic Symbol of faery faith, the Butterfly was believed by many cultures to be the souls of the dead and the keepers of power. Traditionally, no negative energies were said to be experienced in any area of the Otherworld where Butterflies could be found. They were symbolic of the freedom from self-imposed restrictions and the ability to regard problems with greater clarity.
The Boar - Important to the art and myths of the Celts, the Boar (once common) was known to be cunning and ferocious. The battle horn of the Celts sported the figure of a Boar's head, their shields were decorated with engravings of the Boar in warfare, and figures of this animal were mounted upon their helmets. The Boar was said to lead the Celts in battle and show direction for their warriors. The skin of the Boar was also believed to heal wounds.
The name means "Silver Circle." Arianrhod is also known as "Star Goddess," or "Full Moon Goddess". Her palace was called "Caer Arianrhod," otherwise known as the Aurora Borealis. She was Keeper of the Silver Wheel of Stars, a symbol of time and/or karma. This wheel was also known as the "Oar Wheel," a ship which carried dead warriors to Emania, the Moon Land. Arianrhod is sometime depicted as a weaver, linking her to lost myths of creation and magical practices. Daughter of the great Welsh Goddess Don, Arianrhod is said to be useful in helping females find their own feminine power.
