We all are tree lovers and its because of people like us that click a tree was born, in here you will be able to plant a tree with 3 simple steps.

The Rowan:


In ancient Celtic thought, trees offer magnificent wisdom and open up new branches of understanding about everything, including phases of the year.
The Ogham is a sacred system of tree knowledge used for many purposes, including the passage of time.

The Rowan tree twists in February’s awareness as a tribute to Brigid, a matriarch, Celtic goddess and magical maven in Irish mythology. With this association, the Rowan is a symbol of protection, discernment, transition and balance. Rowans are ideal witching sticks (for locating “power-pockets” in the earth, finding water for wells) – this is symbolic of finding our spiritual paths.

When invoked in February, the Rowan can help us clarify our vision and seek advantageous routes upon our life’s journey.

This Tree has long been honored by the Celts for its balance of beauty and hardiness.

When we silence ourselves long enough to listen to the rowan speak, we hear her message, “Look deeper, see through the object before your eyes and you will encounter visions into the worlds beyond the one you physically know.”

The Ash:

 

 

 

 

 

According to the ancient Druidic Ogham, the Ash is also a transitional symbol – making it a fitting icon for February – a month in which Spring is just beginning its ascension.

The Ash is a sign of creation and connects new life to our awareness where once there may have been a bleak outlook.
In-line with many festivals of renewal in February, the Ash is also symbolic of rebirth.

In your February meditations, incorporate the expansive Ash for protection, earthly connections and tapping into and expanding inspiration/creativity/motivation.

Ash Tree Meaning

Not only was its girth tremendous, its height was towering. Some ash trees are known to soar over 200 feet tall. Such incredible growth owes credit to it’s fantastic root system.

It’s mass, height, and deeply embedded roots were all metaphors for the spiritually minded Celts (and us too).
The ash speaks to us of growth, expansion, and higher perspective.

If we think symbolically as the ancient Celts were apt to do, we can liken our own soul-growth with that of the ash. AND with greater (higher) attainment, the more we need to stay grounded (well rooted).
This concept falls right in line with the mystic message of the ash. Indeed, certain druid accounts indicate the realm between earth and sky were connected or held together by the mighty ash.

Although it is associated with the element of air, the ash is also akin to the fire element for its amazing burning qualities. The wood of the ash burns with intense heat, even when green. This surfaced ideas of resurrection and renewal for the Celts.

The ash was commonly used for protective rituals because it was believed that helpful energies were contained within its great body.

Specifically, the ash was thought to be the guardian of children, and was often used as a healing agent for childhood illnesses.

Its association with children may come from creation myths within Celtic lore.

In some accounts the ash was considered the cradle of life, and also considered to be a gentle giant and a protector of youth.
