Celtic Tree Calendar
« on: September 05, 2009, 03:27:08 PM »

The origins of the Celtic lunar tree calendar are unknown, but it is generally accepted that the Celts and other ancient peoples measured time through the phases of the moon.  The lunar tree calendar combined the Celtic reverence for trees with that tradition.  Depending on the correspondences, the energies of each moon are either masculine or feminine and best suited to different magical workings.

The counting of the moons begins with the moon closest to Yule. 

Birch Moon-Feminine- Protection (specifically children); purification; creativity

Rowan Moon-Masculine -Healing; Personal Empowerment; Divination

Ash Moon-Feminine-Prosperity; Protection; Healing

Alder Moon-Masculine-Spirituality; Teaching; Duty; Mental Prowess

Willow Moon -Feminine-Romantic Love; Healing; Protection; Fertility; Magic for Women

Hawthorn Moon-Masculine-Fertility; Peace; Prosperity; Binding

Oak Moon -Masculine - All positive purposes; Magic for Men; Fidelity

Holly Moon -Feminine -Protection; Prophecy; Magic for Animals; Sex Magic

Hazel Moon -Feminine -Manifestation; Spirit Contact; Protection; Fertility

Vine Moon - Androgynous - (correspondence depends on the type of vine)
Blackberry - Prosperity; Protection; Sacred to Bridget
Blueberry - Spirituality; Dream Magic
Grape - Fertility; Inspiration; Prosperity; Binding
Thistle - Courage; Protection; Strength

Ivy Moon -Masculine -Healing; Protection; Cooperation; Exorcism

Reed Moon -Feminine - Fertility; Protection; Love; Family Concerns
