A Celtic Zodiac

By Dikki-Jo Mullen

St. Patrick’s Day decorations of bright spring green, lucky shamrock charms, fey leprechauns and mirth have replaced the sweetly sentimental Valentine’s Day hearts and cupids on my porch. The late winter days are gradually lengthening, illustrating astrology in action in the eternal seasonal cycle which guides human destiny. Thinking of the spring equinox when a new zodiacal year begins afresh I’ve been contemplating the many zodiacs which have been used for thousands of years to analyze how cosmic tides above reflect life on Earth. There is the Chinese twelve year calendar, various Native American medicine wheel zodiacs, the familiar Western or tropical zodiac and many more. Holidays and seasons highlight the rhythms which flow as planet Earth circles the Sun, all a part of the rich tapestry of astrology. The Celtic Zodiac is an especially intriguing and little understood system of astrology. In honor of the magic of springtime and new beginnings here is a glimpse at how this oldest of zodiacs might relate to your own life.

Each year at sunrise on the summer solstice hundreds of people, those fortunate enough to obtain admission, congregate in an open plain near Salisbury, England. Shivering in the predawn, the huge crowd struggles to glimpse a small space among the ancient circle of rocks. This annual gathering at Stonehenge is big news around the world. Each midsummers day, on June 21 or 22, millions more tune in to media coverage to watch as the sun rises to mark the longest day of the year by shining through an opening in the stones. The ritual touches some primal longing, perhaps reaffirming the continuity of life through the cycles of the Sun and Moon. Stonehenge is actually an astrology calculator. It gives silent testimony of the importance the ancients placed on following the important heavenly patterns.

The specifics of exactly how this early zodiac worked are murky, lost in time. However those who constructed Stonehenge were precise and well schooled concerning the celestial cycles. Various mystics, astrologers and mythologists have, over the centuries, attempted to unravel the meaning of not only Stonehenge but of other stone circles around Britain, Ireland and other places in Europe. These monuments from bygone times usually mark the longest, shortest and equality of days at the solstices and equinoxes. In 1948 Robert Graves published The White Goddess, an immense scholarly work dedicated to this topic. Graves gathered fragments of the early Celtic teachings and filled in the gaps with his own perceptions and conjecture. His efforts have often been criticized, but as is so often the case, the critics have been those unable to offer a better explanation. Graves developed a tree and plant zodiac, linked to the evidence left in early records, he claimed. Vaguely it is tied to the great stone circles and has been revised by a number of scholars ever since.

Does Graves’ version of the zodiac have merit or is it merely a bit of malarkey, a leprechaun’s pot of gold teasing us to follow a distant rainbow?

Here is an opportunity to consider, explore and decide for yourself. The Celtic Zodiac is used in a spiritual and esoteric sense, a ritual honoring of the seasons. Its message differs from what we think of as a typical astrological consultation, which might offer advice about love, a job, a move, etc. I like to think that both approaches have merit and deserve a place in our lives. During the past couple of years I have included the Celtic Zodiac in horoscope updates for my clients. The local astrology guild, a Unitarian Church and a social group called The New World Celts have all booked presentations about the Celtic Zodiac recently. Nearly everyone felt a connection to its message. It is like a simple Sun sign reading, whimsically correlating the qualities of the various months of the year with rhythms in nature. Graves begins the Celtic year on December 24, with the Birch Tree. This study is drawn from his work. Historians and mythologists find it controversial. I like to think that debate enhances the intrigue and enjoyment.

Signs of the Celtic Zodiac

Birch (Beth)- December 24 – January 20.

Following the winter solstice, this time marks deep winter. The graceful white tree is seen as fresh and cleansing. It is ruled by The Sun and is symbolized by both the Eagle and the Stag. Sacred to the deities Cerridwen and Taliesin, dream journeys to the realms beyond are taken as nature slumbers. A birch tree might be dressed as a woman and welcomed as an honored guest. The message is one of high aspirations and reaching for the growing and brightening light to come as the days begin to lengthen.

Rowan (Luis) – January 21 – February 17

This time span links to Uranus and is symbolized by the Dragon. The goddess Brigantia is honored. She is a thinker, a magical catalyst who makes things happen. Philosophical transformations and influencing the outcome of matters is the focus. The rowan tree is related to witchcraft. The twigs of the tree tied with red thread and hung in an entry way offer protection to all who enter.

Ash (Nion) – February 18 – March 17

The sea god Lir, planet Neptune and trident are the symbols of this benevolent influence. Shepherds crooks, baby cradles and hearth fires were often made of ash, to assure wellness and protection. Like a pure and translucent watercolor, this is a time to enjoy poetry and final moments of reverie indoors before spring begins. The message is one of self renewal and healing.

Alder (Fearn) – March 18 – April 14

Called iron wood, this exceptionally hard wood has been carved to fashion blades, implements and arrowheads. Its emblem is the pentacle. Ruled by Mars, it is sacred to the god Bran and to King Arthur. Argumentative and challenging, its the trail blazer. Efficient, confident and focused on wasting neither time nor resources, this is a time to be active, to move forward with the spring equinox.

Willow (Saille) – April 15 – May 12

Ruled by the Moon, Willow relates to the goddess Morgan Le Fey and is symbolized by a serpent. It spans May Day, a time of coming of age, and festivals of greenery. Birth and reproduction motifs are present. Willow links to weeping while turning the tears of sorrow to tears of joy. Its time to heal regrets and release losses. The mood is one of observant perception of truth, to discover the silver lining behind the gloom and clouds.

Hawthorn (Uath) – May 13 – June 9

Vulcan, the craftsman, is the ruler of this sign. Symbolized by a beautifully rendered chalice, its the time of Govannan, a patron of artisans. Dwellings in a starry castle behind the North Wind, he gives the wisdom to see beneath appearances and also opens the eyes to new dimensions of beauty. It is said that bathing the face and eyelids with morning dew gathered from the Hawthorn in May will give both the gift of beauty and an ability to see the wee folk. Weave a wreath of the branches and display it to repel any wayward faeries, spirits or ghosts.

Oak (Duir) – June 10 – July 7

Strength and endurance are the gifts here. Reflect upon the doors and furnishings made of oak which have lasted a thousand years. This tree can grow to be large, honoring the triumph of the continuity of life and leaving a legacy. Pour a libation of wine over the roots to invoke the favor of oak, the crusader and spokesman. The symbol is a golden wheel. Ruled by Jupiter and linked with the god Dagda, this sign is about structure, roots and ancestry.

Tinne (Holly) – July 8 – August 4

With its cheerful red berries and sharp spines, this small tree was often planted around dwellings for decoration and to offer protection from intruders. The Earth, a flaming spear and the Sun god Danu as well as Habondia, an abundance goddess are associated with this cycle. Generosity, kindness and gratitude for all that is plentiful set the pace. Its linked with the celebration of Lammas, an early harvest festival.

Hazel (Coll) – August 5 – September 1

The rainbow fish is a symbol of the sign, providing a clue about this signs, tie to water sources, including rain. The planet Mercury and god Ogma suggest a link with numbers, rules and the value of analysis. Acquiring knowledge is the goal and discerning the truth. The quest for discovery extends to divination. Usually cut into a Y shaped wand, hazel is a popular choice for dowsers and diviners.

Vine (Muin) – September 2 – September 29

The graceful swan, planet Venus and Branwen or Guinevere are all sacred to this time, which spans the autumn equinox. Summer blends into autumn bringing a sense of resurrection. Autumn colors are celebrated with dance and music. The reward of the harvest ahead is promised. A sense of equality and justice prevails. The vine can be a source of delicious fruits, the delectable grapes are eaten whole or crushed to make delicious drinks. Vines were also cut to fashion shelters, baskets and other items to make life more pleasant.

Ivy (Gort) – September 30 – October 27

Perhaps the earliest house plant (think of an ivy covered cottage), ivy relates to happiness and hospitality. Ivy wood cups, holding ale, were often passed to welcome guests. Ivy grows in a spiral, it was traditionally added to wreaths to illustrate fidelity and attachment. The transformative symbols of the butterfly and Persephone, visitors who are reborn after visiting the underworld, as well as the benevolent goddess Arianrhod bring the message of Ivy.

Reed (Ngetal) – October 28 – November 24

Here is an emphasis on the inscrutable, the secret keeper. Stones, Pluto, the god Pwyll as well as Hecate, goddess of the crossroads are keynote associations. Its Halloween season. Reeds can be fashioned into pan pipes, musical instruments which might speak with the dead. Thatched roofs for shelter and other useful items can be created from these flexible branches. Its a time of preparation and uncertainty concerning what might be ahead with the winter to come.

Elder (Ruis) – November 25 – December 22

The elder is a healer with a solitary nature. The berries and leaves can be made into jelly, wine or tea; charms to cure warts, chills and various other maladies. The planet Saturn, ravens, and the god Pryderi are associations which underscore wisdom, self sufficiency and completion. The wise old man or woman archetype arrives with important insights to offer, before suddenly moving on.

Mistletoe (Nameless Day) – December 23

This lone day hovers between two worlds, straddling the past and the future. It marks the time as one year ends and another begins. There is a void quality which provides an opportunity to settle debts and right wrongs, to tie up loose ends in a sense. The dual faces of the Sun and Moon, like comedy and tragedy masks, give this day a dark and light twins motif. A tie to the benevolent goddess Larunda encourages peace. Once it was forbidden to argue in the presence of mistletoe, hinting at the custom of exchanging a kiss underneath it as a protector of passion.

Colby Temple, Cassadaga, Florida
By Dikki-Jo Mullen

It was a cool and grey winter Sunday morning and I was a guest speaker at the lovely historic Colby Temple in Cassadaga, Florida, the famous Spiritualist Camp. Here is an excerpt from that presentation.

Saturn is in Sagittarius until June 15. Schools, church politics and foreign diplomacy can be of concern. From June 15 – September 17 Saturn will be in Scorpio. Scandals come to light (watch news about Cosby and Prince Andrew and others). The final stages of the bad flu and ebola viruses can play out. Jupiter is in Leo until August 10. This is an outstanding time for the entertainment world, children’s programs and spectacular creative work. On August 11 Jupiter begins a year long transit through Virgo. Health care solutions will be accented. Reasonable coverage and alternative health care as well as natural and herbal medicines can become more popular. Mystical Neptune remains in its own ruling sign of Pisces all year. Psychic phenomena and the 6th sense are accented. Many might encounter angels and other helpful spirits. Visit a fairy trail, take photos of orbs, there is another world along side the mundane and ordinary to explore. Pluto remains in Capricorn all year. Ecology versus business, the value of currency and banking practices can be accented.

July 31 brings a rare Blue Moon. Expect serendipity and magic to be in evidence, appreciate coincidences and act upon synchronicity that day. Usually Blue Moons occur only every 2 – 3 years. It’s a good time for attending a Moon ceremony or drum circle. Venus will be retrograde July 25 – September 6 in Virgo and Leo. Don’t change your relationship status then, be as tolerant as possible of any rude behaviors or peccadillos while Venus is retrograde. Keep a sense of humor and resist the temptation to purchase expensive items or risk security during this Venus retrograde. Dieters might have a temporary set back.

Uranus will square Pluto all year. This is a long range and transformational transit showing vast changes sweeping society as a whole. A new world is emerging. Those who are flexible and can hold on for the ride will fare well. Cardinal signs are involved so there is an immediate, act here and now quality afoot. Patience is scant.”

Year of the Sheep

Chinese Astrology – Year 4713

The Year of the Wood Sheep

February 19, 2015 – February 7, 2016

By Dikki-Jo Mullen

Chinese New Year is celebrated at the second New Moon after the winter solstice, in late January to mid February. Following a cycle of twelve years, it is the oldest of all contemporary calendars, in use since at least 2637 BCE. The legend surrounding the origin of Chinese Astrology is an intriguing one. It began as a party to honor Buddha. Twelve animals attended and each was rewarded with a year. The animals are said to hide in the hearts of those born as well as within the events which take place during their respective years. Five elements (fire, water, metal, earth and wood) are also a part of this zodiac. Every sixty years the element and animal pairs will return to begin a new cycle.

The Sheep (also known as The Goat) was the eighth animal to arrive at Buddha’s festivities. Eight is a number which is most auspicious in the Far East, so the year holds the promise of greater peace and prosperity for many. Both lambs and goats have long been symbolic of sacrifice and spirituality; this sign also accents faith. Religious practices will become a stronger focus and a more universal source of solace.

Considered witty, loyal, altruistic, compliant, candid, kindly and tolerant and mild mannered, Sheep people are sought after as both business and marriage partners. The wood element also promises especially high intelligence, talent and a gift for communicating with those from all walks of life. The Wood Sheep fares well in business but also is a mystic, often revealing genuine psychic ability.

Those born in a Sheep Year can prepare to graze happily in greener pastures. Your prospects will improve during your year.

2015 – A Universal Eight Year

Astro-Numerology

By Dikki-Jo Mullen

Calendars and numbers naturally go together. The numbers of the days, months and years help to orient us. Numbers are essential to sanity and happiness, they help us find our way amid the chaos. There is something so comforting about numbers. Astrology and numerology have gone hand in hand at least since the time of Pythagoras in the 4th Century BC. Number codes are prominent in many spiritual texts, including The Bible.

A wonderful way to begin to understand number patterns is to consider the Universal Year. 2015 is 2+0+1+5 = 8. 2015 is an eight year. The 8 is symmetrical, suggesting tangible accomplishment. Many will see finances improve. Eight brings a solid and well defined quality. Eight will also balance material values with other priorities. It has an efficient and businesslike quality, career goals can advance. In astrology 8 relates to the planets Neptune (a higher octave of Venus) and Jupiter. This combination suggests that comfort and order will be enhanced. For good fortune, if there is not numeral 8 included in your address, pencil in an 8 figure near the doorway. If turned on its side the 8 becomes the cosmic lemiscate, a traditional charm for harmony and balance in the midst of change. In any case, draw a sideways 8 near the entrance to your dwelling for good fortune all year. Interests and businesses related to sports, antiques and collectibles, real estate and property management should flourish this year.

Tan, canary yellow and ivory are favorable colors for wardrobe, home décor and meditation candles this year. Crystals to wear or carry include ,hematite, jet, black quartz, black pearls, very dark rubies and dark sapphires. Music to select includes organ, choral and sacred hymns or chants. Health wise be aware of the care of the bladder, teeth and skin as well as avoiding flu hazards. Celery and other fresh vegetables, vegetable soup, chocolate, popcorn and (!) marshmallows are favorable foods to include in your diet.

Here is a fun recipe to make to celebrate the eight year.

POPCORN CAKE

1 16 oz package of miniature marshmallows

20 caramels

1/4 cup butter, cubed

10 cups popped corn

1 cup M and M’s candies

2 cups of peanuts

Melt marshmallows, caramels and butter, stir, pour over the popcorn in a large mixing bowl. Stir in candies and peanuts, press into a cake pan (a bundt works well). Let cool until firm, remove from pan with a serrated knife, serves about 17 hungry souls.

What does this number Eight year of 2015 hold for you? To determine your own personal year number add your month and day of birth to eight, then keep adding the numbers together until just one single digit remains.

This is an example for some one born on July 13. 7 (for July) + 13 + 8 (for 2015) = 28 and 2 + 8 = 10. 1 +0 +1. So this shows a personal one year, a time of new beginnings, for some one born on this date.

Here is a list of the number meanings for some quick insights.

One –  will, leadership, vitality, independence, beginnings

Two –  sensitive, partners, emotions, receptive

Three –  expansion, creative, diplomatic, sociable

Four –  structured, boundaries, limitations, physical, grounded

Five  – dual, communicates, restless, adventure, witty, clever

Six  – domestic, loyal, concerned, artistic, refined, cultured

Seven –  intellectual, mysterious, mystical, reserved, occultism

Eight – tenacious, materialist, accomplished, powerful, upward mobility

Nine – universal, endings, humane, broad scope, spiritual, reflective

Finish up things in your personal nine year, begin afresh in a one year. Marry in a two or six year. Work hard in a four or eight year. Take risks in a three year, try multi-tasking in a five year. Meditate and contemplate, enjoy peace and privacy in your personal seven year.

Eclipses

Eclipses, close alignments of the Sun, Moon and Earth, are about bring an intensified always bring about turning points, shifts and growth with elements of surprise.

Names for the Full Moons were a part of the culture of early peoples around the globe since star gazers first observed how the heavens reflect life on Earth below. There are a variety of different lists of Full Moon names. The Maine Farmers’ Almanac seems to have been the first almanac to publish Native American “Indian” Full Moon names in the 1930’s. Here is a list which originally seems to have been compiled for the boy scouts nearly a century ago. An early list of “Indian month names” was published in 1918 by Daniel Carter Beard in his The American Boy’s Book of Signs, Signals and Symbols for use by the boy scouts. Beard’s “Indian” month names were:

January: Difficulty, Black Smoke
February: Raccoon, Bare Spots on the Ground
March: Wind, Little Grass, Sore-Eye
April: Ducks, Goose-Eggs
May: Green Grass, Root-Food
June: Corn-Planting, Strawberry
July: Buffalo (Bull), Hot Sun
August: Harvest, Cow Buffalo
September: Wild Rice, Red Plum
October: Leaf-Falling, Nuts
November: Deer-Mating, Fur-Pelts
December: Wolves, Big Moon
What do you think of this version of Moon names? Can you relate it to the Moon’s impact on your own spiritual path?
