Oak

10th June – 7th July

€2.60

The most sacred tree in ancient Ireland, the Oak covers the period from June 10th – July 7th. The Oak, like the Ash was seen as a protector and was especially revered by the Druids. Indeed it is thought that the word Druid comes from the word for Oak, the Irish for this tree being Dair. According to legend there was an Oak in Co. Kildare which bore the fruit of several species, including apples and which became the inspiration for poets and bards. In this picture we see the Medieval Bard sitting beneath an Oak surrounded by the echoes of those who came many generations before him. The Ogham (ancient Irish writing) sign for the Oak is two horizontal lines on the left side of a stone.

Personality traits.
Those born under the Oak are divided into two types, the New Moon and Full Moon. The New Moon being the first two weeks and the Full, the last two weeks of the period. The New Moon individual is said to take more risks, both on a financial and personal basis than those born under the full moon. They, however, make good leaders with characters that stand above the temptation of greed. The Full Moon individual is more inclined to be glory seeking but is generous in spirit and has an instinct to survive. All oaks are inclined to be inspiring, enterprising, unafraid to speak their mind and have a great deal of personal integrity. However, they must be careful not to appear vain and pompous.
