Trees are sacred to many cultures and have been used throughout time, for both magical and practical purposes. The Druids believed that certain trees would represent the characteristics of a person, in relation to when they were born.

Reed- discreet, Inquisitive, protective

The reed has often been used for protection practically and magically. For roofing and for flooring mats to give warmth. The sweet smell of the reeds within the home would also freshen and cleanse. It is also worn in charms and talismans.

If you were born under this Reed month, then you are thought to be a keeper of secrets, you can often get people to open up to you. With an ability to get to the root of a matter.

Be careful not to get caught up in gossip due to your inquisitive mind – stay true to yourself. You have a strong set of morals but do not get too burdened down with other people’s problems. You would be suited to a career in fact finding… for example journalism, the police/detective, historian etc.
