Willow

In ancient times, our Celtic Druid Ancestors devised a system, part alphabet, part calendar/zodiac, to be carved using simple notches onto wood or stone. Each character was a number and a letter. The consonants were time periods – mostly lunar months and the vowels were the solstices or equinoxes. Each symbol represented a tree or shrub, around which grew an extensive mythology, recording historical and religious stories, the uses of each tree both for craftwork and medicinally, and a divinatory system similar to the tarot. To the Celts, the whole landscape was alive with meaning, and wisdom – the wisdom of the trees.

Willow, Ogham name Saille, rules 15th April to 12th May, its element is that of water. In divination: The flexible Willow twig when pushed into damp soil will strike root and grow, so moving on from one period of life to a new era with wisdom and experience gained from adversity.
