The Celtic year is made of of 13 months which are based on the 13 full moons. Each month is named after a tree. We are currently in the Celtic Tree Month of Willow, it ends on May 12th. This last full moon was called the Willow Moon and is also referred to as the Moon of Balance. The willow has traditionally been connected to the moon because of their relation to water, cycles, and the feminine. The willow is a tree of dreaming and enchantment. It has been said that "the moon owns the willow." The willow puts us in touch with our deep emotions & allows us to express, own, and release them.
