Irish astrology, also known as Celtic astrology, is the astrological system practiced by the ancient Irish or the druids. Described in ancient Irish manuscripts, it is based on an Irish Celtic symbol system and not on one of the traditional systems such as Western, Chinese or Vedic astrology.
The Celtic zodiac is based on the beliefs of the druids and is based on the cycles of the moon. The year is divided into 13 lunar months, with a tree (sacred to the druids) assigned to each month. Each tree has special magical properties, the secret secrets of which come from the old shamanic alphabet, the Ogram. The origin of this tree alphabet is attributed to the god of poetry and eloquence of the Celtic Ireland, Ogam. He is also known as the Celtic Hercules.
The Druids were Celtic priests who lived in much of Western Europe, Britain and Ireland until they were replaced by the Roman government and later by the arrival of Christianity.
Thanks to their extensive understanding, some renowned Celtic scholars noticed that there were parallels between Celtic astrology and Vedic astrology. They discovered that ancient Celtic astrologers used systems similar to Vedic astrologers. Or maybe the other way around.
Greek and Latin writers said that the Celts were not only advanced in astronomy, but that they were especially respected by the Greeks for theirs "Speculations from the Stars". Even the Romans honored their astronomy with some classic writers who even said that it was the Celts "Master of Astronomy". One of the first to notice that the ancient Celts believed that the world was round (not flat) was Martial (c. 40-103 AD), who himself claimed Celtic ancestors.
The Irish (and the Celts in general) have a long tradition of astrological learning, dating back to before Christianity and the beginning of Greek and Latin learning. For too long, this rich tradition of Celtic astrology has unfortunately been neglected.
