By Carmel: The ancient Celts had a great respect for their native trees and land and venerated the spiritual aspects of their trees as well. To every month they ascribed a sacred tree sign that to them was part of the person’s destiny and predicted the pathways in their lives. It was considered very auspicious to be in tune with nature and to protect nature if you desired harmony and a blessed union.
If you know your sacred tree sign, you may like to plant such a tree in your own garden or have pictures or paintings of them in your house or apartment.
