The Celtic Tree Calendar

The Celtic Tree Calendar

The Celtic Calendar is a moon based calendar with the months named after trees. Below are the dates and also the “Days Out of Balance” which are traditional holidays with a twist in The Power of Trees.

The traditional moon calendar information comes from this source: https://www.thoughtco.com/celtic-tree-months-2562403. I have changed some of the Moons to better reflect Lan’s journey.
