Queen of Magic, Witches and Ghosts,

hecate-witch-goddess-678x381

Call upon Hecate when you find yourselves standing at a crossroads for she is known as the Queen of Magic, Witches and Ghosts, she is a guardian of the spirit world and can see deep into the unseen with her dark intuitive magic. She is connected with the dark aspect of the Moon and the magic that is found in the shadows often accompanied on her travels by an owl, a symbol of wisdom.

She is a protector of travellers as well and those who find themselves in very dark, lonely places, she is a Goddess of seeing deeply into the future, into the threads of the different paths that lay before us and into the darkness. She can see right through into the Underworld she holds great power there, she works with us in times of deep change and release.

She helps us to let go of what is not longer working for us and stunting our ability to grow, she brings us the message that it is time to step away from the familiar and venture deep down into our own depths so we can really see into the truth that lies there.

She calls to us into the darkness to see the truth that lies beyond the veils we hide behind, change is never easy.

But the Goddess Hecate is there to walk alongside us, she imparts her sight, her wisdom and her deep knowing to us and tells us to trust in our intuition and that sometimes there is need for a leap of faith on our path when moving forward.

She calls to us to follow the wild path of the ancient witch within our being and too heed the messages that are calling to us and to trust our inner sight, she tells us not to fear the power that is in our veins but to embrace it.

Her message is for us to know that there is no such thing as a right or wrong choice when we are standing at the crossroads, she tells us that in times when we feel that we are not ready to move, we must nourish and honour all that we are to the fullest in the here and now, just give yourself space to allow the answers to come.

When we honour ourselves, even if we are in a place where we do not want to remain, the answers flow and come when we let go of needing to guide them in a certain direction or outcome. Hecate tells us to trust in our inner knowing and guidance that when the time is right for us we will make the right choice.

I call upon Hecate while I sleep, for she can lead us to see things differently ourselves included and help us find greater understanding of our selves and others especially like me you are questioning your friendships and relationships with others.

Samhain Rituals

67238c564bdd670dcdd8920a523c9426--witchcraft-magick

Many of us will celebrate Samhain over a few days and nights, which usually include a series of solo rites as well as ceremonies, spells, feasts, and gatherings with family and friends.

Pagans celebrate Samhain from sundown on October 31 through November 1.

Halloween, short for All Hallows Eve, its celebrated on and around October 31. Halloween and Samhain are not the same, they are two separate celebrations that differ considerably in focus and practice.

Samhain’s is associated with death and nature’s rhythms. In many places, Samhain coincides with the end of the growing season, as vegetation dies back with the frosts.

This is also when the veil is thin between the world of the living and the realm of the dead and this enables us to contact and communicate with loved ones.

For those who have lost loved ones in the past year, Samhain rituals can be a way to bring closure to the grieving and to help them adjust to their loved ones being in the Otherworld by spiritually communing with them.

There are many ways we celebrate Samhain. Here are a few listed below, why not try one of them for yourself.

Samhain Nature Walk. Take a meditative walk in a woodland area near your home. Observe and contemplate the colours, aromas, sounds, and other sensations of the season. If possible gather some natural objects and upon your return use them to decorate your home.

Seasonal Imagery. Decorate your home with Samhain seasonal symbols and the colours of orange and black. Place an Autumnal wreath on your front door. Create displays with pumpkins, cornstalks, gourds, acorns, and apples. Light candles in cauldrons.

Ancestors Altar. Gather photographs, heirlooms, and other mementos of deceased family, friends, and pets. Arrange them on a table, along with a few candles. Light the candles in their memory as you call out their names and express well wishes. Thank them for being part of your life. Sit quietly and pay attention to what you experience. Make a note  of any messages you receive in your journal.

Feast of the Dead. Prepare a Samhain dinner. Include a place setting at your table for a deceased loved one. Add a place setting, and to the plate, add a bit of each food served. Invite your ancestors to come and dine with you. After the feast, place the contents of the plate and cup outdoors as an offering for the Dead.

Cemetery Visit. Visit and tend the gravesite of a loved one at a cemetery. Call to mind memories.Place an offering there such as fresh flowers, dried herbs, or water.

Reflections. Reflect on you and your life over the past year. Review journals, planners, photographs and blogs that you have created during the past year. Consider how you have grown, accomplishments, challenges, adventures, travels, and anything new that you have learnt.

Renovate. Select an area of your home or life as a focus. Examine it. Re organize it. Release what is no longer needed. Celebrate renewal and transformation.

Bonfire Magic. Light a bonfire outdoors or kindle flames in a fireplace or a small cauldron. Write down a habit that you wish to end and cast it into the flames as you imagine release. Then imagine yourself adopting a new, healthier way of being.

Divinatory Guidance. Using Tarot, Runes, Scrying, or some other method of divination, seek and reflect on guidance for the year to come. Write a summary of your process and any messages you received.

Divine Invocations. Honor and call upon the Divine associated with Samhain, such as the Crone Goddess and Horned God of Nature. Invite them to aid you in your understanding of the cycle of life, death, and rebirth. If you have lost loved ones in the past year, ask these Divine Ones to comfort and support you.

Witchy bottles & jars for magic.

il_340x270.1623241575_h3q0

In many traditions of folk magic in Europe and  North America, a spell is sealed inside a jar, bottle or other container. This serves a number of purposes, the first being that it keeps the magic concentrated, and prevents it from escaping before the spell has been completed. The other is that you can take it and put it anywhere you like.

Perhaps the best known type of jar spell is the witches bottle. In early times, the bottle was designed as a way to protect oneself from any negative witchcraft, usually around the time of Samhain, homeowners would create a witch bottle to keep evil spirits from entering the home on Hallows Eve. The witch bottle was usually made of pottery or glass, and included sharp objects such as pins and bent nails. It typically contained urine as well, belonging to the homeowner, as a magical link to the property.

The sort of container you use in a jar spell or bottle spell will partially depend on the intent of your working. For instance, if you’re hoping to do magic for healing and wellness, consider putting your spell ingredients into a medicine bottle, pill container, or apothecary style jar.

A spell done to sweeten someone’s attitude can be done with a jar of honey. In some forms of Hoodoo and folk magic, honey is used to sweeten someone’s feelings towards you. In one traditional spell, honey is poured into a jar or saucer on top of a slip of paper containing the person’s name. A candle is placed in the saucer, and burned until it goes out on its own. Another variation, the candle itself can be covered in honey.

You can also make a banishing spell using a jar of hot sauce, for this process the name of the person you wish to be rid of is written on a slip of paper, and stuffed into the jar of the hottest hot sauce you can find. Shake the bottle every night for seven nights during the waning moon, and on the final day, empty it down the loo and get rid of the bottle, hopefully the person will then “hot-foot it” out of your life.

A money jar spell can be done to bring wealth your way, in some traditions nine pennies are used, all though it may be various coins placed in a jar or bottle. The jar may then be painted green or gold if you wish and then put someplace where it can be seen each day. Eventually, according to tradition, money will start coming in, this one is best done on a full or new moon.

Keep in mind that spell jars can be plain and simple, or you can decorate them to look pretty. The nice thing about a decorative, attractive jar is that you can leave them anywhere you like, and no one will even realise that magic is going on.

Beltane

5d7cbacd7704e9ab963b6125dd7ca6b8

 

Beltane is one of my favourite pagan holidays because it represents fertility, abundance and growth.  Like Samhain, the opposite holiday on the Wheel of the Year, this is also a time when the veil between the realms is thin, and a good time to communicate with the spirit world, especially nature spirits.

A festival of fun and merriment, a time of feasting and Maypole dancing,  as we celebrate the woodland union of The God and Goddess it is a time of rejoicing in the Earth’s fertility.  A beautiful time of year, often some of the sunniest warm days and surrounded by May blossoms, bluebells in the forests the whole world blooming with new life.

Beltane is associated with the Celtic God Bel, also known as Balor or Belenus. He is a God of Light and Fire, and associated with the Sun (akin to the Greek Apollo). Fires were the traditional symbol of Beltane.

Maypole dancing, originally a trunk of a fir tree with side branches removed, but you can use any large branch to tie your ribbons on its great fun. It also represents the ancient phallic symbol of fertility and the God aspect. The cauldron represents the goddess for love romantic and well as self love.

People would jump over the sacred Beltane fire, the young, unmarried men would leap the bonfire and wish for a wife, while young women would leap to ensure fertility.

Beltane fire ritual

Build a fire outside make sure it’s somewhere safe and dance round it with your partner or friends. In ancient times this was done naked after drinking a fair amount of wine. It was probably more fun that way! Anyway, fully clothed is more an expectable way to have a fire ceremony.

Designate a May Queen and King of the Forest to lead the celebrations and dancing. Invite your loved ones and friends to celebrate and together you eat and drink.

Beltane blessing

Beltane is here, and we welcome the time of fertility.
We greet this season of fire, love, and passion
with open arms and loving hearts.
We come together to create life
to honour the Divine union between masculine and feminine
from which all life flows.
As the Earth grows and creates life, we shall grow and create life.
So mote it be.

Beltane celebrations

Gods and Goddesses of Beltane – Green Man, Spring Maiden, May Queen.

Prepare a crown of flowers for the May Queen/Maiden.

Prepare a crown of greenery and a staff with bells, long ribbons and leaves for the Green Man.

Beltane Incense: Mulberry, lilac and frankincense.

Candle Colours: Yellow and White.

Ritual Colours: Green and Yellow.

Decorate your Altar with green and yellow, May blossom and young Oak leaves.

Kindle a bonfire, make and cook your own oatcakes.

Create your own Maypole, crown with a circle of young leaves, fresh May blossom and flowers, decorate with ribbons and bells. Go dance and enjoy

Decorate your altar in vibrant flowers you can use roses and flowers in any rainbow hues, and don’t forget your crystals.

Make your own sacred maypole using found wood, rainbow ribbons, and topped with a quartz point you can also place this on your altar.

If you’re looking to attract a new love, light a purple or green candle on the evening before May 1, and again on May 1 night, while you visualize the relationship coming into your life, asking that it manifest for the highest good of all.

So it is, so it shall be, and so it has always been. As you celebrate this special day, let the colours of nature inspire you to remember that all things bloom again, and a time for lovers to find each other again.

May you find yourself, your spirit, your passion, remember it’s never too late for you to become who you are intended to be.

The Morrigan, the Celtic Goddess of Death and the Black Raven of Death and Rebirth

11063544_1135225753161610_3220175546137757483_n

The Morrígan (“phantom queen”) or Mórrígan (“great queen”), also written as Morrígu or in the plural as Morrígna, and spelt Morríghan or Mór-ríoghain in Modern Irish, is a Goddess from Irish mythology.

The Morrigan’s major form is of an old woman, wrapped in a cape of black raven feathers. Sometimes she takes the form of the death raven announcing death, or the banshee predicting it with shrieks. She is the thunderhead that descends at death, and the soul which is torn from the body rises through it like lightning. Her body becomes the conduit of death, the stormy pathway of the soul.

This is not for all people but it is the way she appears to the Fair Folk. Because she is the pathway, the vast network of reincarnation compressed into a cloudy mirror, she can guide the soul as she chooses. She needs only to change the pathways. Usually she is a subtle mist, but on the battlefield, she is storm clouds and thunder, the hag screaming for the dead, and the black death-horse which gallops through the sky carrying its newly deceased rider.

She is also, in secret, the goddess of incarnation. People do not like to believe that incarnations are guided. They prefer to believe that souls are generated at birth, or that some great god has chosen their fate. That the dark death goddess carries the soul in her black wings to rebirth is a frightening idea. Perhaps if the soul were brought by the stork, it would be more acceptable to the modern imagination

Another role of the Morrigan is associated with the hunting falcon, which is a rare and special role for her. Instead of a raven who guides the soul at birth or death, she becomes that falcon that guides the healer or mage in initiation.

Almost by necessity, given the lack of records left by the Celts, some of information here about the Morrigan is based on intuition.

The reaction of most people to the presence of the Morrigan is fear because her presence is said to bring with it the aura of death. When she is near, the doorway of death is visible. The portal is composed of silver branches creating a doorway against the darkness. Beyond the door lay the worlds of incarnation.

There are many images that she uses. Long ago, she came as an animal – a wolf, a vulture, or jackal. Then she took on the forms of transportation – the death-coach and the death train. She is still the Nightmare who rides away with the soul, the dark angel of death that wrestles the soul out of the body.

The death-coach comes from a time when coaches were owned by wealthy aristocrats. A coach meant nobility, royalty, or superior status. A death-coach sent by a god would be luxurious black velvet and leather, with gold and silver trim. But it also meant that a deity, a superior was sending a messenger. It was how invitations were sent before the postal service and the telephone.

The death summons in whatever symbolic form brings awareness of the temporary nature of life.

The Morrigan’s mythic body is a woman or a bird, but her cosmic form is a cloud with pathways leading from it. People are pulled down these pathways by the force of their desires and sins, and by their striving and seeking after goals. It is as if they are magnetized, and the soul is pulled from one magnet to the next. The death-coach brings the soul to the mountaintop or the cave, and she is the dark cloud it must pierce to arrive at its destination. She also opens the most powerful of the magnetized pathways – the birthing child pulling down a soul into a body and a new incarnation.

As a helper to and teacher of mages, she is the falcon who guides the hunter to his goal. Falcons too have been used as a way to send messages. In all cases, the message that she sends is that another world a waits.

As a teacher, she sometimes presides over initiations. Initiation is the simulation of death, and new life. In the initiatory process, it is the death of the soul rather than the death of the body, but they echo each other. One must experience disintegration before reintegration.

Initiations transform people and are sometimes painful but they bring them to the awareness of deeper layers of vision and intuition.

As Black Goddess of initiation, some choose to enter her cauldron, to gain the wisdom that is there. It is a dangerous path, for there is a chance of destruction, and also a chance of losing the wisdom that is sought. Such was the case in the tales of Talieson and Kerridwen. Though she made the wisdom for one who was dull and needed it, nevertheless one who was clever gained it. Wisdom will not always go where we wish it.

Finding wisdom is hard. Sometimes one must suffer unjustly, and sometimes one must deal with ugliness. But the Black Goddess has wisdom of the pathways of life and death, and from the dark cauldron of human need and desire, and from the process of incarnation itself, comes the bright drop of wisdom.

Mabon – Autumn Equinox

de9eaa97d8f240b1c8859182d6755a86

Mabon: Autumn Equinox – September 23rd

(Also known as Harvest Home, Harvest Tide, Fall Equinox, Autumn Equinox etc.), September 21-24.

Mabon marks the middle of harvest, it is a time of equal day and equal night, and for the moment nature is in balance. Up until Mabon, the hours of daylight have been greater than the hours from dusk to dawn. But from now on, it will be the opposite.

It is a time to reap what you have sown, of giving thanks for the harvest and the bounty the Earth provides.

Mabon is a time of celebration and balance, a time for finishing up old projects and plans and planting the seeds for new enterprises or a change in lifestyle.

This is the time to look back not just on the past year, but also your life, and to plan for the future. In the rhythm of the year Mabon is a time of rest and celebration, after the hard work of gathering the crops. Warm autumn days are followed by chill nights, as the Old Sun God returns to the embrace of the Goddess.

Goddesses – Modron.

Gods – Thoth, Thor, Hermes, and The Green Man.

Colours – Green, red, orange, yellow, brown and gold.

Decorate the altar with acorns, oak sprigs, pine and cypress cones, ears of corn, wheat stalks and other fruits and nuts. Also place there a small rustic basket filled with dried leaves of various colours and kinds.

Incense – Pine, sage, sweetgrass or myrhh.

Mabon is a good time to cast spells of balance and harmony. Protection, wealth and prosperity spells are appropriate as well.

Lammas

13871706_10154297710266772_1449271126_n

Lammas is an excellent time to look around and take stock. The year and the summer are half over. Think of the things you meant to do this summer and as yet have not and of the thing that have not come to fruition in your life.

Remember those things that have left your life.

Consider what has come into your life.

This is the experience of the turning of the year. The seasons are winding down to the time of peace and rest from when they rise again anew in the spring.

Things to do on Lammas

You can make a grain doll or bake a grain man and offer it to someone in thanksgiving.

For many witches, finding time to celebrate the sabbats can be a challenge, even in the summer months. Don’t forget that honouring the seasons and deity do not have to be a huge celebration, full of casting circles, fancy rituals and huge feasts. Of course the sabbats can be one or all of those things, but do they don’t have to be. Honoring the change of season can be as simple as a candle lit, a prayer said, and making a toast. Just 10 minutes out of your day to reconnect with your beliefs, your deity and the earth.

For Lammas, a simple ritual that can be done alone or with family or friends, and in just a few minutes. Of course, feel free to use and or change the words for your own private use.

Supplies you will need:
Bread (Home baked, store bought)
Wine, beer, mead or even fruit juice.
A candle gold or yellow, though white always works. Also anything that smells like baked goods like cinnamon.
Anything seasonal that you’d like to set out, such as summer flowers, things harvested from your garden, a corn dolly, etc.
Incense.

Find a quiet place to sit for a moment, or gather around your table if sharing the ritual with others. Have your bread, wine and candle in front of you. Take a moment to think about what Lammas means to you, and what it has meant to those who have followed the season through times past. It’s the first harvest, time to offer bread in thanks for the prosperity of the crops.

Light your candle and incense if you are using it. Take a bite of the bread and a sip of the wine.

Say these words

On this first day of August, I light a candle to celebrate the harvest.

As the wheel of the year turns and the days start to grow shorter, I honour the Lord and Lady (or the seasons, or your specific deity) and thank them for the blessings and prosperity they have brought to me this year.

I honour those who came before me, and all things living on this earth.

Eat more of the bread; drink more of the wine, save a few bits as a sacrifice to the earth. Later put them outside, in your garden, under a tree or into a potted plant.

If you have the time, sit for a few minutes and meditate before putting out the candle. As you go about your day, keep negative thoughts at bay and try to mentally tally all the wonderful things that have come into your life this year.

Have a wonderful Lammas, however you choose to celebrate!

What’s your Celtic tree sign

12523887_1357362320956019_8837497904347460810_n.jpg

The Celtic Zodiac is based on the cycles of the moon. The year is divided into 13 lunar months with a tree assigned to each month. The Druids believed that the time of our births is pivotal to the formation of our personality and behaviour and the Celtic Zodiac was developed from their knowledge of earth cycles and their reverence for the sacred knowledge held by trees. They had a profound connection with trees and believed them to be the vessels of infinite wisdom.

Find out how the Celtic druids interpreted your tree sign and which tree signs they said you were compatible with….

BIRCH
If you were born under the energy of the Birch you are highly driven and can easily become caught up in your own zeal, drive and ambition. You are always reaching for more, seeking better horizons and obtaining higher aspirations. The Druids attributed this to your time of birth, which is a time of year shrouded by darkness, so consequently you are always stretching out to find the light. Birch signs (like the tree itself) are tolerant, tough, and resilient. You are cool-headed and a natural-born ruler, often taking command when a situation calls for leadership. When in touch with your softer side, you also bring beauty in otherwise barren spaces, brightening up a room with you guile, and charming crowds with your quick wit. Celtic tree astrology Birch signs are compatible with Vine signs and Willow signs.

ROWAN
Celtic tree astrology recognises this sign as the philosopher of all the zodiac signs. You are a keen-minded visionary with high ideals. Your thoughts are original and creative, so much so that others often misunderstand you. This sometimes makes you aloof when interacting with others. Beneath a cool exterior, you are burning within from your passionate ideals and this inner passion provides motivation for you as you make your way through life. You have a natural ability to transform situations and people around you. You are influential in a quiet way and others look to you for your unique perspective. Rowan pairs well with Ivy and Hawthorn signs.

ASH
You are a free thinker. Imaginative, intuitive and naturally artistic, you see the world in water-colour purity. You might appear moody and withdrawn at times, but only because your inner landscape is in constant motion. You are inspired by nature and, in turn, you inspire all who you associate with. People seek you out for your enchanting personality. Art, writing especially poetry, science and spiritual matters are areas that strongly interest you. You are in a constant state of self-renewal and you rarely place a value on what others think about you. Ash signs partner well with Willow and Reed signs.

ALDER
You are a natural-born pathfinder, a mover and shaker and you will blaze a trail with fiery passion, often gaining loyal followers to your cause. You are charming and gregarious. You mingle easily and your self-assurance is infectious. You are very focused and you dislike waste. You have the ability to see through superficialities and you don’t suffer fools gladly. You place high value on your time and are motivated by action and results. Alder’s pair well with Hawthorns and Oaks, as well as Birch signs.

WILLOW
Your sign is ruled by the moon so your personality holds hands with many of the mystical aspects of the lunar realm. This makes you intelligent, creative and intuitive (highly psychic people are born under the sign of the Willow). You have a keen understanding of cycles and this means you’re more patient than most tree signs. With your intelligence comes a natural ability to retain knowledge and you often impress your company with the ability to expound on subjects from memory. Those born under the Willow sign are bursting with potential but have a tendency to hold themselves back, for fear of appearing flamboyant or overindulgent. Your powers of perception are what ultimately allow your true nature to shine through and lead you to success in life. Willow signs join well with the Birch and the Ivy.

HAWTHORN
You are not always what you appear to be. You often give off a different persona than the one inside you. Perhaps it’s because of this that you never judge a book by its cover. You are well-adjusted and can adapt to most life situations. This makes you content and gives you the ability to comfort others. You are naturally curious, with an interest in a broad range of topics. You are an excellent listener and people seek you out as someone on whom they can unburden themselves. You have a great sense of humour and a clear understanding of irony. You see the big picture and have sharp insight but it’s typical of you not to give yourself credit for your observations. Hawthorn signs match up nicely with Ash and Rowan’s.

OAK
You have a special strength. You despise injustice and often become a champion for those who do not have a voice … a crusader or a spokesperson for the underdog. Nurturing, generous and helpful, you are a gentle giant among the Celtic zodiac signs. You exude an easy confidence and naturally assume everything will work itself out. You have a deep respect for history and ancestry and you like to impart your knowledge of the past to others. Many people born under the Oak sign become teachers. You have a need for structure and will often go to great lengths to make sure you’re in control. Typically, Oak signs live long, full and happy lives. You enjoy a family setting and you are likely to be involved with social/community networks. Oak signs pair off well with the Ash and Reed, and are known to harmoniously join with Ivy signs too.

HOLLY
This is the regal sign of the Celtic tree zodiac. Noble and high-minded, those born under this sign tend to take on positions of leadership and power. You are comfortable taking on challenges and you overcome obstacles with a rare skill and tact. When you encounter a setback, you simply redouble your efforts. Very seldom are you defeated, which is why many people look up to you and follow you as their leader. You are competitive and ambitious, even in the most casual settings. You can appear arrogant but it’s merely confidence in your own abilities. Once people get to know you, they’ll find you are generous, kind and affectionate. Highly intelligent, you skate through academics where others may struggle. Holly signs may look to Ash and Elder signs for balance and partnership.

HAZEL
You are highly intelligent, organised and efficient. Like the Holly, you are naturally gifted in academia and you excel in the classroom. You’re well-informed and have the ability to retain information which means you are able to recall, recite and expound on subjects you’ve memorised with amazing accuracy. This gift can make you appear like a know it all but you can’t help that you’re genuinely smart and because of your knowledge base, you usually know the right course of action to take. You have an eye for detail you like things to be ‘just so.’ Sometimes this need for order and control can lead to compulsive behaviour if left unchecked. You have a knack for numbers, science and things that utilise your analytical skills. You like rules, although typically it’s you who is making them. The Celtic tree astrology sign of Hazel joins harmoniously with Hawthorn and Rowan’s.

VINE
You were born within the period of autumnal equinox, which makes your personality changeable and unpredictable. You can be full of contradictions and are often indecisive, but it’s because of this that you can see both sides of the story and empathise equally with each. It’s hard for you to pick sides. There are areas in your life that you’re quite sure about, however, and those include the finer things of life like food, wine, music, and art. You have very distinctive taste and a connoisseur of refinement. Luxury agrees with you and you have the ability to turn drab into dramatic beauty. You are charming and elegant and and you maintain a level of class which wins you esteem from a large fan base. Vine signs pair well with Willow and Hazel signs.

IVY
Among other cherished qualities of this sign, the most prized is your ability to overcome all odds. You have a sharp intellect, but more obvious is your compassion and loyalty to others. You have a giving nature, and are always there to lend a helping hand. You were born at the time of the waning sun so life can be difficult for you at times, putting obstacles in your way, but you endure troubling times with silent perseverance and soulful grace. Ivy signs have a tendency to be deeply spiritual and cling to a deep rooted faith that typically sees them through adversity. You are softly-spoken but you have a keen wit. You are charming, charismatic and can hold your own in most social settings. Ivy signs are attracted to the Celtic tree astrology signs of Oak and Ash.

REED
You are the secret keeper of the Celtic tree zodiac signs. You dig deep until you find the real meaning of things and can find the truth hidden beneath layers of distraction. You love a good story and have a tendency to be drawn by gossip, scandal, legend and lore. These tendencies also make you an excellent historian, journalist, detective or archaeologist. You love people because they offer you a diversity of meanings for you to interpret. You are adept at coaxing people to talking to you and can even be manipulative, but you have a strong sense of truth and honour so most of your scheming is harmless. Reed people join well with other Reeds, Ash or Oak signs.

ELDER
You tend to be freedom loving, the wild one of the zodiac. In younger years you may have lived life in the fast lane, perhaps even identified as a thrill seeker. When you were born, the light of the sun was fast fleeting and you take the cue from nature. You’re often looked upon as an outsider because, despite your extrovert nature, you have a tendency to be withdrawn. It’s down to the fact that you’re deeply thoughtful with a philosophical bent. You also tend to be very considerate of others and genuinely strive to be helpful. These acts of assistance are sometimes thwarted by your brutal honestly which you openly share solicited or otherwise. Elder Celtic tree astrology signs fit well with Alder’s and Holly’s.
