Most people think of astrology and immediately think of the typical zodiac that is most commonly used in the West. However, there are many other forms of astrology, including Celtic astrology.
The Celtics or Celts were very big nature lovers. Much of their traditions, mythology, and folklore are tied to the natural world. Even their astrology is based on the lunar cycles, which separates it from most modern astrology beliefs.
Each sign in the Celtic zodiac is a natural being or animal, and the qualities and characteristics are very spot on. Much like spirit animals, these signs are based on the belief that certain animals are correlated to the behaviors of man.
