We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started, And know the place for the first time. ~T.S. Eliot Four Quartets

It is my birthday this month and I also know quite a number of saggitarians so here's a little celtic astrology for the month.

Nov 25 - Dec 23 is the celtic Elder tree month which was sacred to the faeries and branches were hung above stables to protect the horses from evil. It was considered unlucky to burn elder and an omen of death to bring it indoors! Elder people are lively and self-sufficient, and dislike routine. They tend to be highly energetic and thrive on change, needing constant mental and physical challenge.

Planetary Ruler = Saturn Druic animal is the raven, which symbolizes healing and protection- Elders must learn to use change as a positive force in their lives or they can become reckless and confused.

Dec 24 - Jan 20 is the celtic Birch tree month. In ancient times the Birch represented birth and renewal as it was the first tree in leaf after winter. Birch people are determined, ambitious and resilient, natural leaders and good organizers. They are not deterred by setbacks and believe in hard work and patience. They are loyal, but can be reserved in expressions of affection.
Planetary ruler = Sun Druic animal is the white stag. This symbolizes high ideals and aspirations. Birch people need a goal in life or they can become depressed and pessimistic.
