Drawing on her intimate knowledge of trees and connections to Celtic traditions, Daniela Christine Huber shares a new interpretation of the tree horoscope calendar--where 22 archetypal trees are associated with different dates throughout the year and just like birth stones or astrological signs can reveal your innate talents and unique life path.

Featuring full-color photos that capture the true spirit of the trees as well as in-depth descriptions of the characteristic qualities of the tree personality types, Huber’s guide explains how to determine your personal tree of life depending on your date of birth and reveals how this tree stands by your side with its gifts and talents as a faithful friend and companion for a lifetime. The 22 trees of the calendar are Oak, Hazelnut, Rowan, Maple, Walnut, Yew, Chestnut, Ash, Hornbeam, Fig, Birch, Apple, Fir, Elm, Olive, Cypress, Poplar, Cedar, Pine, Willow, Linden, and Beech. Each tree species occurs twice in the annual cycle, except for Oak, Birch, Olive, and Beech, which are specially assigned to the equinoxes and solstices. Each tree description explores the tree’s spiritual meaning, element family, essential qualities, healing effects, gifts and talents, and symbolism. The author also includes an everlasting birthday calendar to record the birthdates of your family and friends, and she looks at the birth trees of several famous people.

Showing how each of the 22 trees of the tree horoscope holds great power, Huber explains how your birth tree is the guardian of your individual potential and reveals the abilities and talents available to you in your life. Recognizing and developing the gifts that your birth tree reveals can help you dissolve entrenched habits and patterns, regain inner balance, and activate the full potential of your tree horoscope destiny.

Rowan
April 1–10 and October 4–13

Element family: Fire

Gifts and talents
Helpful, enthusiastic, visionary; bursting with joie de vivre; generous, wise, with an eye for beauty; open to new things, sociable, with a sense of justice; a seeker of inner balance; a good listener and organizer.

Carpe arborem
Exploring myself and finding within me the things that bring me joy creates balance, gives me strength, and awakens my love for myself.

Symbolism
Thanks to its red berries, the Rowan, sometimes known as the Mountain Ash, is a popular source of food for many animals, especially birds. It is also considered a wise herald of emerging change. Through its humility and wonderful adaptability to its environment, it is a symbol for pure joy in life.

The Rowan path through life
Rowan-born people belong to the Fire elements family, which is the source of their spirited nature and constant focus on the essentials. They radiate grace, beauty, and inner serenity, which is why many people feel safe and accepted around them. These enthusiastic travelers always find new things and places to experience and explore, and their great thirst for adventure draws them out into the world. With this often comes the restlessness of youth that grants little peace.

Rowan personalities are sympathetic listeners and mediators between opposites. Their intuitive wisdom allows them to help their fellow humans find inner equilibrium, thereby restoring harmony to potentially unbalanced relationships. They similarly feel a deep yearning for agreement and harmony themselves.

However, what they find easy to deal with around others presents one of their own greatest challenges in life; if the demands and expectations that others have of them are not in tune with their own personal needs, Rowan personalities all too readily place their own needs at the back of the queue. This selfless character trait might seem agreeable to others at first sight, but it does not help either party when viewed over the longer term.

This pattern of behavior can result in those with Rowan as their birth-tree becoming unbalanced and emotionally distanced from others. A further consequence is the manifestation of long-standing pent-up anger, which then hinders the communication of feelings and naturally makes finding a solution all the more difficult and protracted. It is hugely important for them to listen to and follow their inner voice in order to find within themselves the stability they seek in the outside world. Mastering life for them lies in first giving themselves what they so keenly seek in others: support, a sense of security, and love. This will give them the courage to follow their dreams.

Rowan-born people also long to express their sense of harmony in their professional lives. Combined with an appreciation of beauty and creativity, this makes them suitable in particular for professions with lots of social involvement and for roles as designers, interior decorators, and stylists. A desire for authority means that their professional path often leads to self-employment or working with a business partner on an equal footing.

In a nutshell
It is important for the self-worth of Rowan-born people to ensure that the expectations and wishes of others do not overpower them. They should first be clear about their own needs in order to be able to stand up for these both openly and honestly. This clarity, combined with expressing their needs to others, will bring them the level of stability, trust, and inner balance that they need to progress along their life path step-by-step.

The lesson they should learn is to open their heart to every experience, whether joyful or painful, instead of hiding behind supposedly protective walls. Those with Rowan as their birth-tree should learn to stop making decisions with their precocious intellects and instead look within themselves and leave the choice to their hearts.

Healing powers
Rowan berries can be eaten in small quantities, whether raw, cooked, or dried. They contain large amounts of vitamin C, boost the immune system, and cleanse the blood. They also stimulate kidney function.

Birth-tree power
The balancing power of self-love.

Inspiration from a Rowan personality
I saw that you must often begin with a deception in order to reach the truth; light must necessarily be preceded by darkness.
Giacomo Casanova
