In Celtic astrology this is the month of the Hazel Tree [5 Aug - 1 Sept], and the druic animal being the Salmon, a very powerful talisman. The Salmon, often known as the 'salmon of knowledge' is considered the oldest and wisest animal in celtic mythology.
Hazel is also considered to be the tree of wisdom, and in olden times it was considered a crime, not to mention terrible luck to fell one. Hazel people are expressive and artistic, and also have analytical minds. They can be well-suited to teaching, but are also radical and idealistic thinkers.
