The Birch Tree

7 December - 3 January
To the Druids, the Birch represented renewal and rebirth as it was the first tree in leaf after winter. Birch people are determined, resilient and ambitious. Good organizers, leaders and strategists, they are not deterred by setbacks, believing hard work, patience and persistence will triumph. They are loyal but reserved in showing affection.

The Ruling Deity - The Celtic Warrior God Lugh, inventor of all arts and crafts, rules this sign.

The Druic Animal - The white stag symbolizes high ideals and aspirations - Birch people need a goal in life or they become depressed and pessimistic.

Planetary Ruler - Sun
