The people of old Ireland were very spiritual and quite knowledgeable in the art of divination, which is as old the hills of Ireland themselves. There were many forms of divination that were handed down through the ages and are still practiced today.

Ogham Divination
The Oghan is an ancient script also known as the Celtic Tree Alphabet. It is believed to have been named after the Irish god Ogma, the Celtic God of eloquence and literacy. The Ogham refers to the characters themselves. Each corresponds to a letter or sound, as well as a tree or wood. In addition, each of these symbols has come to be associated with various meanings and elements of the human experience. 

The letters or Oghams were carved into wooden staves. The staves were usually cut off a branch of a nut-bearing tree. The Ogham staves were cast onto a clean white cloth or onto sacred ground. The person doing the divination would than look at the Oghan letters on the staves and interpret the message of the Oghan. The way the staves fell would also provide insight as to what the future may hold. 

Wisdom in the Trees
The Celts recognized that a child born within a certain season would develop certain qualities. They saw that the patterns of a person's life could be observed according to the movements of the moon and the season in which they were born, as the Celt's calendar was based on a lunar year.

Each season has a corresponding Tree. The Celts believed that Trees have a very specific energy all their own. With their knowledge of the Earth's cycles and their profound connection with Trees, they would map out a person's life path. The Celts believed Trees were vessels of infinite wisdom.  You can discover your personal Celtic Tree sign here.

Divination of Sight
The Celts were expert observers and quite proficient at reading the signs in nature. Watching the patterns in the clouds or the movement of flames in fire would give clues of upcoming events. Scrying, or gazing into pools of water, may also give signs and symbols of what lay ahead.

Omens were sought for almost every activity
, but were especially important when setting out on a journey. The Celts believed the first animal they saw on their way foretold the success of failure of their quest. Birds were also sacred to the Celts and beveled to foretell the future by observing their flight patterns, calls and other behaviors.

You can start looking for the signs in nature for your own journeys. Is there a certain animal or tree that may have a special meaning for you? It is amazing what we can learn if we just slow down and look around us.

Wishing you a happy Saint Paddy's Day!

Beannacht Leat…... Bright Blessings to you.
