First Sentence
The racial group that we now know as Celts were an Indo-European people whose culture spread rapidly across much of Europe from the British Isles and Northern Spain to as far east as Transylvania, the Black Sea coasts, and Galatia (modern Turkey), from the second millennium B.C.E. to the first century B.C.E. Read the first page

Take a Tour of the Celtic Tree Signs (and much more!) 23 April 2005
By Janet Boyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"According to Druid teaching, which is thought to reach back to 500 B.C.E., each tree contains a dryad or magical tree spirit. Celtic Astrology, based on the mystical tree calendar in which the tree dryads represent the nature in human beings, will help you gain new understanding of yourself and others." -From the book

Celtic Astrology is a 13-sign Zodiac where each month is represented by a tree sign. People born during the days ruled by a specific tree tend to exhibit characteristics associated with that tree. In her book, Celtic Astrology - How the Mystical Power of the Druid Tree Signs Can Transform Your Life, astrologer Phyllis Vega provides a comprehensive analysis of each tree sign and the Nameless Day of the Celtic calendar, as well as each sun sing of the traditional Zodiac.

The Celtic tree signs are as follows:

Birch: December 24 - January 20
Rowan: January 21 - February 17
Ash: February 18 - March 17
Alder: March 18 - April 14
Willow: April 15 - May 12
Hawthorn: May 13 - June 9
Oak: June 10 - July 7
Holly: July 8 - August 4
Hazel: August 5 - September 1
Vine: September 2 - September 29
Ivy: September 30 - October 27, 2004
Reed: October 26 - November 24
Elder: November 25 - December 22
Nameless Day: December 23

In this book, the tree sign analysis includes:

*Ogham alphabet letter
*ruling deity
*keywords
*indepth analysis of the tree itself
*character and personality traits of those born under its influence

The sun sign analysis includes:

*key phrases
*symbol
*element
*quality
*ruler
*brief outline of personality and character traits

As if that weren't enough, Celtic Astrology also features tree sign/sun sign combinations including an exercise, project, spell, game, visualization, or meditation specifically created for each tree sign/sun sign combination. Black and white photographs and illustrations are peppered throughout the book, and there is an extensive bibliography and internet resource section for further reading.

Both my husband and I are Scorpios, but his House placements are different from mine, as well as his Ascendant. I've often wondered "How in the world can he be a Scorpio?" He lacks the intensity, curiosity, and interest in transformation that seems so prominent in my psyche. When I read Celtic Astrology, I began to understand some of the differences between us. I am Reed/Scorpio, but he is an Ivy/Scorpio. His temperament is conciliatory, artistic, and creative-and indeed, he's a very talented acrylic painter. I, on the other hand, am forceful, independent, uncompromising, and complex. Bearing an indomitable spirit, I am a survivor.

Vega's deft interpretation of Celtic myths and heroes-as well as the traits of the individual trees themselves-provides additional insight into the differences of individuals born under the same sun sign (as is the case with my husband and myself). This delightful book requires no previous knowledge of astrology, but the additional information of the Druidic tree signs enhances traditional sun sign interpretation. Celtic Astrology is a great book for those wanting to expand their astrological knowledge, as well as those interested in Celtic mythology, Druidism, and the tree signs.

A Marvelous Book for Beginners and Experts both 13 July 2004
By Tasha Halpert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Celtic Astrology, by Phyllis Vega is enjoyable to explore. After I had read about myself in the Druid Tree Signs, I found myself looking up my friends and relations. The author thoughtfully includes the traditional sun signs as well as the Tree Signs. Best of all, she includes spells and rituals for each Tree Sign, making the book practical as well as interesting.
Subtitled How the Mystical Power of the Druid Tree Signs Can Transform Your Life, the book begins with a brief introduction to the Druids and their culture along with an explanation of the difference between Sun Sign and Druid, or Celtic astrology. The author's lucid style continues to illuminate the tree signs themselves, including associated deities and animals. As a perpetual student of ancient lore, I appreciated the myths and legends associated with the signs.
The author weaves information about nature, the Celts, ecology, and much more into every chapter. I was impressed by her knowledge and understanding of how things work. For instance, when she discusses The Reed, she details their uses by Native Americans as well as their place in nature, and their relevance as a Tree Sign. Because I am an herbalist as well as a student of nature, I am happy to read a book that not only adds to my knowledge but shines enough light to educate the average reader.
Phyllis Vega's rituals and spells are simple and beautifully explained. My only criticism of this book is that I would have enjoyed it if there were more than one exercise per sign. This carefully written work is a good read as well as a fine source of what may be new information to many. I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in learning more about the world of the Druids, their sun own Sun and Tree sign, and those of their friends and relations.

Terrific! 23 July 2002
By Trish MacGregor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This beautifully packaged book is a must for anyone interested in astrology or Celtic astrology. Phyllis Vega takes us on a magical mystery tour of the Celtic signs, from the Birch through the Elder and Nameless Day. She gives us the mythological backgrounds of each Celtic "tree" sign, vivid descriptions of people born under these signs, and shows how the energy has worked in their lives. There's also a separate section about Western astrology & on tree sign and Sun sign combinations. Highly recommended.

Very Disappointing 7 May 2007
By Sam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Based on previous reviews, I thought this book would have more substance or perhaps a new and unique view on astrology from the Celtic view. But it was poorly written and did not give any information that cannot be found free on the internet.

Pros of the book:

* Good to get quick information about what dates correspond to each Celtic tree sign

* Within the tree sign analysis, the info includes the Ogham alphabet letter, ruling deity, and general information about the tree (where it grows, what it looks like, etc)

* The combination of Celtic tree sign and sun sign are interesting.

Cons of the book:

* The descriptions of character and personality traits of each Celtic tree sign are very superficial. More time is given to showcasing the characterics by profiling a famous person or, in my tree sign, profiling a personal friend of the author. I found these examples to be useless and thought it would have been better to go indepth about the specific traits and characteristics of each sign.

* The sun sign analysis is also very weak. There is no new information nor is any of it presented in a novel way. Again - information that can be found on the internet.

* The exercises at the end of the book are dreadful! There is only one exercise per Celtic tree/sun sign combination. Of the ones I read through, none of them sounded interesting or enlightening.

I was very disappointed by this book as I have a great interest in Celtic history and beliefs and thought this book would provide a new level of understanding. Maybe I found it to be too elementary because I have knowledge of astrology.

Yet of the parts I did not know - the information regarding Celtic tree signs - I also found those parts to be underwhelming. The details were superficial and the examples unnecessary and uninformative. A quick search on the internet gave me almost all of the information provided in the book. For an author who has written a number of books, the overall content and style was poor.

In short, I found this book read like a lame undergraduate report on Celtic tree signs as they relate to astrology. There was no evidence that the author really put much indepth thought or research into the topic.

I would say this book may be useful to those with absolutely no knowledge of astrology or for those who want a very barebones reference to Celtic tree signs. But for others, they would be better off thumbing through and reading relevant pages of the book in their local bookstore, instead of spending money to make it part of their personal library.

Not Remotely about Astrology 20 April 2009
By Thalla T. Rothach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book actually describes a system of seasonal meditations that will make your life better somehow. She has taken Mr. Graves' "White Goddess" and Mrs. Paterson's "Celtic Lunar Zodiac" and turned it into a spiritual system. The problem with this is that she strictly adheres to Mr.Graves' 365 day year, so her seasons will migrate backwards a day every three years or so until they are completely reversed. Her history is also off as well: the Celts practised aspects of Buddhism, Taoism and yoga before the Indians and Chinese did (pp. 17 and 213), and could teleport to Atlantis (page 199).
