Irish Astrology: The Lunar Celtic Animal Zodiac And It’s Meanings


Salmon/Fish (August 5 – September 1)

Salmon signs dive deep in their inner waters for inspiration, bright visions, and dreamy perspective. They are naturally intuitive but they don’t make a big deal out of it. These people have a unique view of the world which makes them some of the community’s best artists, poets, and visionaries.

Sometimes they dive way too deep for the rest of us, and some just can’t follow where they swim. But that’s okay, the fish sign needs that kind of depth, isolation, and introspection because when they come back up for air, the world is awed by their brilliance and insight.


Swan (September 2 – September 29)

Spiritually evolved, and eloquent in expressing themselves, the swan swims in a class of their own. They have high standards, infinitely discriminating tastes and they have a keen eye for beauty (even when others cannot see it). Very refined and noble, sometimes the swan is mistaken as detached. This, however, is not the case. The swan is a lover and can prove to be quite passionate in relationships. That “coolness” comes from the swan’s understanding of composure.

They’re natural aristocrats. They can be exacting in details, and have specific ideas about how things should be done. If you want someone who is perceptive, organized and extremely tasteful, get a swan’s perspective.

Butterfly (September 30 – October 27)

This Celtic animal sign lives up to the adage “social butterfly.” Flitting from friend to friend in parties, and always in contact with loved ones (they’re the ones always on the phone, or texting). They can’t help it. Butterflies are gentle souls who can’t be tied down for very long. They love to dream, express new ideas and talk about high- fault in plans with all their friends.

These are the people who brighten up any dark day with their cheer and magnetically bright personalities. They are naturally empathetic, and would never intentionally harm anyone. Rather, they make easy friends and like to see others uplifted. Butterflies bring a sense of wonder and youth to our world. Keep these people around you to remind you of how truly good life can be.

Wolf/Hound (October 28 – November 24)

Wolves have a strong sense of purpose and will go to great lengths to see their point is made and fully understood. This Celtic animal sign is fearless, brave and they rarely compromise. These are the hero’s you want by your side in the heat of battle. They will not back down, and they will take no quarter. Others marvel at their inner fortitude. Where do they find the energy and wherewithal to keep going?

They thrive on challenge, that’s what gives them their stamina. They have impeccable character, and “honor” is their middle name. They are strong willed and sometimes live up to the “lone wolf” label. Nevertheless, you always know where you stand with them, and they will unite with you as long as you share their cause.

Hawk/Falcon (November 25 – December 23)

Seldom do we see more focus on the Celtic animal signs than that of the hawk. When these signs see something they want, they go after it with a force that is remarkable. If, however, they aren’t interested in a project, they will fly off to other more interesting prospects. They care deeply for wisdom and often focus on sharing that knowledge with others.

They can be very philanthropic and generous. Hawks have a keen sense of balance, and they navigate through life with an internal “true north” that creates an uncanny integrity within them. They are open-minded and philosophical. Although they entertain all manne2r of hypotheses, they are strongly opinionated (that inner “true north” thing). That is not to say they cannot be persuaded.
