Celtic Tree Month of the Alder Moon: March 18 – April 14, 2022

From LearnReligions.com

At the time of the Spring Equinox, or Ostara, the Alder is flourishing on riverbanks, roots in the water, bridging that magical space between both heaven and earth. The Alder month, called Fearn by the Celts, and pronounced fairin, is a time for making spiritual decisions, magic relating to prophecy and divination, and getting in touch with your own intuitive processes and abilities. Alder flowers and twigs are known as charms to be used in Faerie magic. Whistles were once made out of Alder shoots to call upon Air spirits, so it’s an ideal wood for making a pipe or flute if you’re musically inclined.

From Ireland-Calling.com

Alder tree in Celtic mythology – balanced between male and female –

Fearn, F – The alder represents the third letter of the ogham alphabet ‘Fearn’ and the fourth month in the Celtic tree calendar.

In Celtic mythology, the alder tree was symbolic of a balance between female and male principles since it possesses both female and male catkins on the same branch.

The alder is a member of the birch family generally found near streams, rivers, lakes and wetlands. It is known for creating a fertile, lush environment for surrounding animal and plant life.

Tree of fairies for the ancient druids

The druids also associated the tree with courage and the evolving spirit, and linked it with death and resurrection. This belief was shared in Austria too, where the wood of the alder was thought to make the dead come back to life.

Alder wood good for building

The sap, leaves and bark of the alder were all used to make dyes; green from the leaves, red from the sap and brown from the bark. The dyes were often used to tan leather. Wood of the alder is flexible and resistant to the rotting effects of water.

Due to these qualities it was often used to build bridges, pipes, milk pales and pilings for causeways across marshlands. Parts of Venice were built on alder pilings.

In medicine, the alder leaves and bark, which contain tannins, were used as an antiseptic and an astringent to treat skin wounds, rashes and swollen glands.

According to the Woodland League of Ireland, the value of the alder to the Irish in the past was for making clogs, masts of ships and shields. Alder wood was particularly impressive as a shield.

It is so hard that if an opponent buried his axe in the shield, he would find it almost impossible to withdraw it. This would render him defenceless and an easier target to attack.

The alder supports more than 70 different insects, many of them specific to the alder, meaning they can’t survive on another tree.

A Filament in Monoceros

Image Credit & Copyright: Giorgio Ferrari

Explanation: Bluish reflection nebulae seem to fill this dusty expanse. The sharp telescopic frame spans over 1 degree on the sky toward the faint but fanciful constellation Monoceros, the Unicorn. Seen within the Monoceros R1 cloud complex some 2,500 light-years away, bluish IC 447 is on the left, joined by a long dark filament of dust to IC 446 at lower right. Embedded in IC 447 are young, massive blue stars much hotter than the Sun, whose light is reflected by the cosmic cloud of star stuff. Observations reveal that IC 446 also contains a young stellar object, a massive star still in an early stage of evolution. The dark filament of dust and molecular gas joining the two star-forming regions is over 15 light-years long.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is the perfect day to clean up messy areas with paperwork related to banking, insurance, taxes, bills and inheritances. Fortunately, you have the motivation energy to do this. Therefore, roll up your sleeves and dig in. Clean up this mess!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

A heart-to-heart conversation with a partner or close friend today might result in improving your relationship. Why not put your cards on the table? Each of you might candidly admit how to make things better. For starters, this might include reducing whatever irritates the other.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Parents have an opportunity to use today as a strong teaching moment. You might help your kids reduce some bad habits and replace them with good habits. Or maybe you can just get them to clean their room. Use whatever creative power you have to benefit everyone.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a good day to clean and maintain things that you own. Go through closets and give away what you don’t need to charity, or sell them, or simply get rid of them. Strip down what you don’t need so that you are streamlined and freer. Afterwards, you’ll feel great!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Today you have a marvellous opportunity to make improvements in your immediate environment. Clean up where you live. If you live in a house, clean up outside. Throw away or recycle things you don’t need. Just do it.

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS March 18, then your zodiac sign is Pisces. You, Pisces, are unafraid to take risks in order to rise above your current situation.

If today March 18th is your birthday, you can be misunderstood. Some behavior patterns may suddenly change therefore giving people the impression that you are foolish or even out of control.

These urges come from your awareness of your psychic abilities. It is as if something is pulling you in one direction and people just do not get it.

Pisceans with zodiac birthday March 18 have a great need to be stimulated and look for spontaneity in the bedroom, laundry room, or kitchen. Your sex drive is definitely strong and it tends to dominate the nature of the relationship. This can sometimes interfere with your romantic relationships.

Your birthday personality trait shows that you love competition. More likely than not, you are rewarding yourself for a job well done. You feel you are superior because of spiritual connection and ability to see the bigger picture.

People turn to you for advice, and then they tell their friends about what you said. You would do well in politics, Pisces.

You who are born on this day 18th March focus on bringing techniques that are more modern to the game plan. With hard work and devotion, you usually bring home the bacon and the cheese.

However, Pisces, you do too much trying to ensure financial stability. Sometimes, it is best to take things slow and easy rather than just jump right into a situation. This is an important aspect of your life and needs to be done with practicality and direction.

With a realistic outlook on the future, your significant other will appreciate your efforts and steady progress to build a brighter tomorrow. You know how to put your life in order through investments and a safe retirement account.

Your love match is certainly a lucky person predicts the March 18 birthday astrology analysis. A Piscean will need someone who can benefit from shared experiences. The perfect partner is someone who makes you feel safe and gives you motivation to push ahead.

You of all people, Pisces, understand what it means to be an adult that has to come to terms with the past. In order to know the value of being a parent, you need to let go of old influences that perhaps did not shed a very good light on parenthood. You believe “it takes a village to raise one child.”

When you have the ability to educate the little minds into a more positive and diverse way of thinking, you will have an independent thinking adult.

If today March 18 is your birthday, you release a lot of energy through sexual marathons but in addition, work out as a part of a routine. You tend to watch your weight but normally can eat what you want.

As your birthday meaning says, you are competitive and Pisces zodiac sign can be found at the basketball court or racquetball court. It is whatever… as long as you are active, you are in good shape. Go ahead and give yourself a high five!

The March 18 birthday horoscope shows that you get excited when it comes to new and undiscovered grounds. You have a strong work moral code with a determination, unlike any other Piscean.

You are going to be successful. It is your destiny. I think it is admirable how you are willing to take a cut in pay to do what you love to do. Besides, we know it not necessarily how much you make, but what you do with it that counts. You, Pisces, can stretch a dollar bill until it breaks!

I can say this about you, Pisces. The March 18 birthday characteristics show you are unafraid to meet any challenge head-on. You are in great physical shape as you love to exercise in and out of the bedroom.

Pisceans believe in extended family values when it comes to childcare. It is everybody’s responsibility and not just one person. Sometimes, people just do not understand you, Pisces.
