Celtic Ivy Astrology Sign: September 30 – October 27
Ogham Letter: Gort
About the Celtic Ivy: Similar to the Celtic Vine, the Ivy falls into the category of a tree for the Celts because it has a woody stem.
The ivy's year-round bright green leaves made it admired by the Celts. The leaves would be made into necklaces and head garlands to represent clear thinking and a connection with nature. It was also thought that wearing the leaves as a head garland or crown would prevent you from getting drunk if you drank too much wine.
The ivy can grow pretty much anywhere. Even the harshest conditions don't deter it from planting roots and shooting up from the ground…vining around everything it comes across. This ability to withstand great obstacles has given the ivy the meaning of fortitude, resiliency, determination, and strength in the face of difficult challenges.
Celtic Symbol: Butterfly
Characteristics of the Celtic Ivy Zodiac Sign: If you're a Celtic Ivy sign, you have an endless amount of energy, able to push on long after others have given up. You are very talented with a uniqueness all to yourself. Once you set your mind to something, you are determined to see it through to the end, no matter how many obstacles you face along the way. Your whole life is about achieving the impossible, doing things no one else thought you could, or that no one ever attempted before.
New Moon Ivy: If you were born during the first two weeks of the Celtic Ivy Zodiac Sign, you are a New Moon Ivy. You beat the drum to a different tune, thinking outside the box in all that you do. You can have trouble making up your mind, which can hinder your success in life unless you find a way to make a decision. You can be quite restless, which doesn't help you when it comes to making decisions – why settle when you can have options? You are very passionate and enjoy the arts.
Full Moon Ivy: If you were born during the last two weeks of the Celtic Ivy Zodiac Sign, you are a Full Moon Ivy. No matter how bad things appear, you never let on. You give off the image that everything is working out just fine. You have a tendency to do whatever it takes to get to the top, even if it means being ruthless or manipulative. This can cause you problems if you aren't careful. You bravely deal with any challenges that life throws at you. You can be very psychic and intuitive.
