Manataka American Indian Council I think I could turn and live with animals, they're so placid and self-contained, I stand and look at them long and long. They do not sweat and whine about their condition, They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins, They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God, Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania of owning things, Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago, Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.

These two symbolic languages (chakras and animals) offer outstanding translations in meaning and energy. Why? Because... 1) Animals are endlessly generous in offering their messages, personalities and meanings with us. 2) Chakras serve as a phenomenal reference for the circuitry, or pattern of human energy.

Celtic Animal Signs - Celtic Animal Zodiac Celtic Animal Zodiac Meanings This page on Celtic animal signs is an extension of the Celtic tree astrology section. I've selected each Celtic sign according to their prominence and affiliation with the full moon within each segment of the Celtic (lunar) year. The Celts honored the rhythms of Nature, and observed different flavors of their environment according to the season. I cannot say the ancient Celts designated zodiac totem animals according to the time and day of a kinsman/kinswoman's birth. There seems to be no separation between Celtic-kind and animal-kind. Cast your mind back to the time of the Celts, and observe: Their breath united with the breathing forests. Indeed, no distinction between man and nature is made in Celtic ideology. In that energetic spirit of oneness, I invite you connect with your own lunar Celtic animal sign. I hope you enjoy these perspectives on Celtic animal signs as much as I did while writing them.
