November 25 to December 22

Those Born Under This Sign:

Elder archetypes among Celtic tree astrology tend to be freedom-loving, and sometimes appear to be a bit wild to the other signs of the zodiac.  In younger years you may have lived life in the fast lane, often identified as a “thrill seeker.”  At the time of your birth the light of the sun was fast fleeting and so you take the same cue from nature.  You are often misjudged as an outsider as you have a tendency to be withdrawn in spite of your extroverted nature.  In actuality, you are deeply thoughtful with philosophical bent.  You also tend to be very considerate of others and genuinely strive to be helpful.  These acts of assistance are sometimes thwarted by your brutal honestly (which you openly share solicited or otherwise).  Elder Celtic tree astrology signs fit well with Alder’s and Holly’s.

The Celtic Meaning of the Elder:

The Celtic meaning of the elder tree deals with:

Death
Cycles
Rebirth
Renewal
Creativity
Regeneration
Transformation
The elder tree ruling time is within the cycle of the thirteenth moon.  This is also the end of the old year at the time of Samhain.  This is where the elder derives its symbolism of endings and/or death.

In this same vein, the druids and ancient Celts recognized the elder had natural banishing abilities.  The essence of its leaves, and the odor of its pretty white flowers were proven to ward off pesky insects.  This origin might have been expanded upon in Celtic lore where we learn branches were hung over doors to ward off evil spirits.

Right on the heels of its associations of banishment and death come the elder’s attributes of rebirth and renewal.  The elder earns these symbolism’s honestly as it has long been recognized as a prized medicinal tree.  Everything from bark to berries has been used to treat all manner of ailments.  The ancient Celtic people recognized its healing abilities, and honored the elder for the gifts of good health.

It is known as a transformative Celtic symbol because it is associated with the realm of fairies. Celtic lore indicates that if you stand near an elder tree at Midsummer’s Eve the land of the fairies will be revealed to your searching eyes. Furthermore, fairies love music – particularly the lulling notes of a flute made from elder wood.
