Birch Tree (Dec 24-Jan 20)
People born under the Birch Celtic tree sign (or Beith, Celtic translation) are known as The Achievers.
In Celtic astrology, this symbolizes you have the ability to go far in life when you focus your energy on specific goals.
Your energy comes from a fire that burns deep within you, but that fire will consume you if you are aimless. It’s always important for Birch Trees to have direction.
Your biggest challenge in life is to discover who you are and what you want. As you discover your purpose, you become the Light that others follow. This may involve a career move or becoming involved in an activity within the community.
Your biggest gift to humanity? You make others smile and see the humor in life, no matter how hard their circumstances. This may be borne of your own experiences, but not always. You are after all, a Light bearer and trusted servant of the spirit world.
You make the world a brighter place by your practical advice and unique spiritual outlook.
The best way for you to uncover your life purpose, is to first ensure you are emotionally stable, not up and down. Find your inner calmness and try not to be triggered by other people. When you are calm, the world around you is calmer.

The answers you receive eventually, over time, are supposed to help us all.
They say, there is always one good book within a Rowan tree sign waiting to be written. Have you written a book yet?
Some may think you aloof, but that’s only because you don’t need to hog the limelight – you are much more interested in observing and learning. When you do speak, your words have greater impact. Others tend to want to hear what you have to say.
Rowan’s are perhaps the most spiritual Celtic sign, although you can be a late developer in this regard.
While you are good at fitting in, shape shifting to your environment, it is only once you accept that you are different to others, that you can go on to achieve extra-ordinary things.

You are highly sensitive which means dull weather, negative people and unattractive environments can adversely effect your mood. To counteract this, spend time in nature – a walk in the woods, park, or by the sea.
There will be times in your life, when you act like a recluse. These periods could last weeks, months or even years. But eventually, you always re-emerge more enchanting than ever.
Consider yourself a butterfly, but one which cocoons and is reborn several times in a lifetime.

You may find you are luckier than most people, or your luck increases when you act on your intuition. Your intuition is the voice of angels guiding you.
