NUIN, the Ash tree, influences not only people born between the 18 February [an Gearran] and 17 March [am Mart], but also healing, transformation and life energy.
The Ash was a sacred chieftain tree, said to “court the flash” as it was prone to lightning strike. Its wood was thought to be enchanted and was used to make Druidic wands and spears.
Traditional Zodiac associations for people born in this time are Aquarius and Pisces. The Tarot equivalent is the World. The personality opposites are Charm/Egocentricity. The planet of influence is Neptune. The gift or ability of this sign is Healing and Creativity. The personality for this sign is enthusiasm, inquisitiveness, and spontaneity.
The quick-witted and gregarious Ash people need to focus their mental abilities or they can become nervous and irritable.
With their lively curiousity and intelligent, persuasive communication style, they love discussing new ideas and projects.
Their animal symbol is the Adder, which symbolises healing, transformation and life energy. Welsh bards referred to the Druids as Naddred, or adders, and it is possible that the story of St Patrick ridding Ireland of snakes refers to the Druids. The adder is poisonous and yet speaks of the mystery of death and rebirth, and of the soul’s journey through from this world to the next and back again.
Born under this sign are those who have a knowing of the connection between ourselves, our planet, and our universe. You feel the pain and joys of all living creatures, which makes you most compassionate
