What is The Druid Zodiac?
In their forest-covered lands, Gauls and their Druid priests assigned virtues to trees, that made these trees sacred. Druids believed trees were a replica of their fellow men. Thus, they considered that people inherit certain characteristics from trees. However, trees had much greater powers, because they believed tree roots were connected to the underground earthly spirits, while their crown was comforted by the Gods.
In the Druid zodiac, each individual is associated with a tree.
Druids understood these deep connections and would predict an individual’s character, according to the tree they were intertwined with. And this connection was made according to their date of birth. In the Druid Zodiac, there are a total of 20 zodiac signs, 16 trees that bear fruit in the 4 seasons of the year, and another 4 trees that bloom in-between seasons. Somewhat similar to zodiac cusps.

What Is Your Sign in The Druid Zodiac?
A faithful and brave yew or a majestic cedar? A willow with mysterious powers or a discreet nut tree? We invite you to discover one of the oldest astrology systems in the world: the Druid zodiac. Find your Druid zodiac sign below.
1. English Yew
(January 2 – 11 & July 5 – 14)
The English yew is a very strong and vigorous tree and the first sign in the Druid zodiac system. The Gauls would make their battle lances from the wood of this tree. With its evergreen leaves, this tree embodies continuity and fidelity, but at the same time the spirit of conquering, and the determination to win. People who are in this zodiac sign are therefore ambitious, combative, and courageous.
They have an above-average mental resistance, but at the same time are idealists, and passionate about metaphysics. Although they value integrity a lot, they are ready to do anything to seduce and conquer the ones that match their heart. People in this zodiac sign may be hasting, and in a hurry, sometimes too much. This is why they can sometimes be sad, and austere.
(January 12 – 24 & July 15 – 25)
Beautiful and strong, the elm tree is the second sign of the Druid zodiac. This tree is the expression of gentleness and simplicity. There is nothing excessive, neither in their form nor in the places where they grow. On the contrary, elms have a soothing, benevolent appearance, made to calm down tensions. People in the elm’s sign are friendly and open to love, but at the same time also orderly and very sociable.
Sometimes too utopian and idealistic in their thinking, which ultimately gets them through disappointments. Their optimism is always high, though. They sometimes have the tendency to close in, adhere to conventional beliefs and attitudes, and rarely leave their place of birth. Be very careful not to become too intransigent.
(February 9 – 18 & August 14 – 23)
The third sign of the Druid zodiac, cedar is rich and evergreen. Cedar branches were offered to young Gauls when they went to war against the Roman legions. Cedar is a symbol of courage and endurance, a majestic tree with a dense crown. His human correspondent carries within him the same energy, which makes his life throbbing, shining, and full of the unexpected. With a good sense of humor and brilliant intelligence, the elm sign seduces but does not stay in place, always in a quest for new adventures. Sometimes cedar people can be susceptible, even aggressive when criticized.
(February 19 – 27 & August 24 – September 5)
The last representative of the conifers trio, similar to the English yaw and the cypress, the pine is, of unusual strength. Without making any special efforts, the pine keeps a straight and fine figure in the forest, above all the other trees. Just like the pine, his fellow human has a very good common sense but doesn’t need recognition for it. In love matters, people who share this Druid zodiac sign will always claim an equitable distribution of rights and duties between their partners and themselves. At times, they may be too cruel in matters of love. Very ambitious, pine zodiac people will do everything to achieve their goals.
(January 25 – February 3 & July 26 – August 4)
Bright as the luster of gold, and with stone-hard wood, the cypress is the most popular of the conifers. The Gauls reverently worshiped cypress and considered it a half-brother. They were convinced that cypress resin on the soles of the travelers, allowed them to walk on water. People in this Druid zodiac sign are altruistic and generous, ready to be of service to others with their exceptional force, devotion, and simplicity. When it comes to love, they know how to be loved without prejudice and can seduce all the cardinal points. Friendship or love, you feel good around cypress people. Their humanity makes them extremely easy to attach to.
(February 28 – March 10 & September 3 – 12)
Willow exudes this feeling of sadness, hence the name “weeping willow”. The people in this sign are not sad by definition but have an inclination towards melancholy, which they cultivate with delight. They are champs when it comes to over-dramatization, heartbreaking love stories, and passionate relations. People born in this Druid zodiac sign are by no means role models when it comes to faithfulness and commitment. They use their innate psychic abilities to gain power by pulling the strings backstage. The willow people have undeniable artistic abilities, due to their fidgety personalities.
(February 4 – 8, May 1 – 14, August 5 – 13, November 3 – 11)
The nobility and finesse define the general allure of this beautiful tree. Poplar has symmetrical leaves, light green on one side and dark green on the other. For the Druids, poplar was the tree dedicated to the heroes who died in battles. Poplar is a confidant, and a quiet and faithful friend, that evokes the realm of peace, reconciliation, and keeping secrets. Poplar people are very eager to be independent, sometimes to the point of closing themselves in. These people have very acute critical thinking, which can make them too pessimistic. They are trustworthy and gifted with brilliant intelligence. Those who will get to love them will find a generous and sensitive heart.
(March 11 – 20, September 13 – 22)
Linden tree has a round, shining crown, a straight trunk, and rich, thick leaves. With a sweet and subtle scent throughout summer, Druids used linden flowers to prepare potions meant to induce sleep. They attributed hypnotic virtues to this tree, making it even more magical. Its mysteries and ambiguity are also found in the natives whom it protects. Endowed with genuine compassion for their peers, people in this Druid zodiac sign often resort to lying to convince others. Strong in appearance, but fragile on the inside, linden people need to feel secure.
(March 22 – April 10 & September 24 – October 13)
A Gallic legend goes that one day a virgin turned into a bird. She chose a hazel twig to sit on and said, “People will eat from these nuts from now on“. Thus, for the Gauls hazels have fertility virtues and symbolize prosperity at the same time. Small and seemingly discreet, people who share this Druid zodiac sign are generally associated with femininity. Those born in this sign hide a passionate temperament, capricious sexuality, and sometimes a confusing versatility behind their grace. Original and fantastic, they can be cruel to those who don’t know how to calm them down. They usually are gentle and patient people.
(April 11 – 20 & October 14 – 23)
Maple tree wood is very strong and resistant. Majestic and balanced, the maple is not devoid of solemnity, though. For the Gauls, maple primarily symbolizes warrior virtues, courage, and power. The same qualities are found in their human brethren. The maple people can be brilliant doctors, lawyers, and even priests. They like to succeed in life and convince others of their beliefs, but they do not turn away from notoriety either. These people know how to manage their entourage. When they fall in love, they like to conquer but also like to complicate things.
(May 25 – June 3 & November 22 – December 1)
For the Gauls, ash is the symbol of power and immortality. It is the tree of life par excellence, whether positive or evil forces were involved. Druids believed that if the ash was cut, the sky would fall down on them. Quite ambiguous, ash sign people are both generous and selfish. They always seek to elucidate the mysteries of life and death. Difficult characters and sometimes hard to put up with on a daily basis, they attract people around them, because of their strong intelligence and original personality.

(June 4 – 13 & December 2 – 11)
Not very tall, but highly regarded as a talisman against curses, the hornbeam was planted by gals, who used it to make carts. Maybe this is why people born under this Druid zodiac sign are excellent communicators. Somewhat superficial and mundane, they do not like loneliness in anyways and are very attached to social conventions. Natural-born aesthetes, the natives have a taste for beauty and luxury and are ready to do what it takes to reach aesthetic perfection. And this search is by no means superficial. Their need for perfection is just as important for both their professional and sentimental life.
(April 21 – 30 & October 24 – November 2)
The Walnut tree is mysterious, lonely, and ambiguous. Gauls admired it and feared it at the same time because they believed walnut has magical properties. Druids used this tree to make special potions in their initiation rituals. They venerated the tree as a horn of abundance and as a symbol of spirituality. Those born under this Druid zodiac sign can suddenly become introverted and live into fantasies that are far from reality. Intelligent and versatile, they can be both brilliant strategists and defenseless victims, drowned in their lunatic sensibility. People in the walnut tree zodiac sign are sometimes open to the outer world, generous, and attentive to those around them.
(June 14 – 23 & December 12 – 21)
A rather strange tree, the fig was considered by Plato the “friend of the philosophers“, and has always represented abundance. The Gauls worshiped the fig trees for the medicinal virtues of their fruits. But it is a much more fragile tree than it seems, which, if not happy with where it grows, may bare no fruit. Those born in this Druid zodiac sign are as fragile as the fig tree.
They are generous with their words but don’t wish to attract attention, and can fade away from lack of love. Fig people are totally into family life. Here is where they can push their respect for social conventions to the maximum. Still, in the long run, they find it sometimes difficult to take on this role for a long time.
15. Sweet Chestnut
(May 15 – 24 & November 12 – 21)
Rather thick than tall, this rustic tree can be mistaken for an oak tree from afar. In fact, the sweet chestnut tree is much more “shy” than the oak. At the same time just as useful, because its fruits have long constituted the basis for the food of our ancestors. Its human correspondent shows the same shyness, but sometimes adopts a confusing, even shocking behavior that actually masks a deep fear of not being loved.
People in the sweet chestnut zodiac sign have a keen sense of order and respect for hierarchy. This makes them perfect work colleagues. In friendship, as well as in love, these people are not very show-off, but they always come around in the right place and at the right time.
(June 24 – July 4 & December 23 – January 1)
Considered to be a friend of the Magi, the apple tree holds a leading position in Druid “astrology”. They valued the apple tree so much, that cutting it was punished with death. Symbol of invulnerability, the tree is a simple, familiar tree, born to give off love and support life. Its human correspondent has the same candor, which sometimes turns into naivety.
For people born in this Druid zodiac sign, there is no such thing as elaborate math calculi or tangled strategies to express their sensuality and love aspirations. Still, they run away from movie-like love romances and prefer the simple joy of a quiet life, which they will willingly conform to. They always keep an open spirit and mind, especially when it comes to gathering scientific knowledge.
The 4 Special Druid Zodiac Signs
17. Oak – Spring Equinox
For the Gauls, the oak tree was considered the guardian of the house, a symbol of life, power, and energy. Just like the tree sap, oak brings renewal with every spring season. For them, the oak tree was associated with awakening and starting fresh. Given its form, the oak reaches up to the heavens, and its large, protective branches evoke a temple, a place of communication between people and the gods. Those born on March 21st are generally stable, generous, and strong. They are known for always keeping their word. Just like the oak tree, these people know how to impose respect, but at the same time, also know how to birth love and friendships that last for a lifetime.
18. Birch – Summer Solstice
Even though it is believed to have been used for making brooms for witches, this modest, protective, courageous tree, is associated with the Moon. Birch was especially loved by the Gauls, who glorified it in the celebrations of marriage and motherhood. People born in this Druid zodiac sign are courageous, hardworking, discreet and full of fantasy, and generous. Born with a strong artistic sense, they are fulfilled without making waves and seduce with simplicity and gentleness. In order to please them, you must not shake them or target their modesty. Otherwise, these people will get scared and gather their branches together in defense mode.
19. Olive – Autumn Equinox
Symbol of fire and heat, the olive tree embodies the quiet and immutable light that casts away evil spirits. It has calming energy deep inside which makes it an exceptional lifelong tree. The Gauls gave it the attributes of fertility, peace, strength, and purification. In the Druid zodiac, those born under this sign prefer to convince rather than defeat, to understand rather than judge, and to be defensive rather than confrontational. They are philosophers and psychologists at the core.
Their exceptional tolerance and wisdom often propel them much further than they intended. They don’t feed off of this, moreover, they close in their inner worlds, where they cultivate their interest in art and reading.
20. Beech – Winter Solstice
Beech is a beautiful and very balanced tree, especially pleasant to the touch. The beech was revered by the Gauls because they believed the beech tree is their connection with their ancestors. They would lay down stones at their roots that represented the dead so that they could get closer to them. People born on December 22nd have an undeniable talent for communication, according to the Druid zodiac. Thanks to the eloquence of their speech and their lively and skillful spirits, these people know how to build relationships and make the most of them. Pragmatic and realistic, they do not lose their heads easily. In matters of the heart, they are very cautious and sensitive to elegance.
