Home » Walking a Wiccan Path » The Hawthorn – 13th May – 9th June – Tree Lore


The word Druid comes from the Celtic word for Oak …Duir.

Ancient Celtic priests believed the trees to be sacred with the oak being the most revered. The oak was thought to possess infinite knowledge and wisdom. The Druids later developed their own form of astrology which incorporated trees. Depending on what month you were born in would relate to a particular tree and in turn its characteristics.

Hawthorn – Creative, insight, good listener

The Hawthorn can also be called the May tree due to when it blooms. Its wood is finely grained yet hard and so can be used in engraving or turnery. This tree also makes good firewood as it burns at high temperatures. It grows in well-drained soil and enjoys a sunny location.

If you were born under the Hawthorn month you may portray a very different outward persona than the real you. You may appear to have a run of the mill life but actually have a real passion or creative side that others are unaware of.

You have a real interest in life and so often are a good listener and have very good insight which allows you to see the broader picture.

I'd love to hear from you
