Celtic Animal Zodiac Overview


There is more than one type of zodiac that individuals study and follow. For example, many people are familiar with the Greek zodiac, the type seen by most and represented the most.

The Greek Zodiac is focused on the sun and the moon. Twelve divisions or signs are part of the formation. Those signs include Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Pisces, Aquarius, and Leo.

The Greek Zodiac is different from the Celtic Animal Zodiac. The latter is a form of astrology with Wiccan traditions.

What is Wicca? It’s a pagan religion (a religion that does not follow modern traditions, such as Christianity) that appeared in England in the 20th century and born from ancient pagan rituals.

Celtic Wicca is a contemporary tradition of Wicca that focuses on Celtic mythology. The Celtic Animal Zodiac is a form of this belief.

Born from a desire to honor and respect nature and the environment, the zodiac focuses on an animal that is most important during the season and month of an individual’s birth.

There are 13 different animals represented. By studying each animal and their representation, Wiccans believe you can better understand yourself and live a better life.
