Ancient Trees Wisdom
In ancient times, the Celts lived in the forest of North Europe. They share life with animals, plants, flower, mountains rivers. They can feel the whole Earth breathing, they were connected with the highest sky and the deeper ground. The Druids were the wisest among the Celts, and they invented a special alphabet called “Ogham”.
The Oghams were symbols written on the wood, and later on the stone. They were a cryptic language based on the old trees wisdom. The Druids wrote their secrets with the Oghams and, with they can see in the future. Would you like to try?
Trees are speaking also for us, although we are not able anymore to understand their words. But Oghams can translate for us. Look behind: you can find your Celtic tree sign. It depends on your birthday. Then you can read what Oghams say to you, under the Moon, New or Full.
