Today I have a short regular episode for you. As you know we are busy to explore the mysterious beauty of nature and we are trying to do that through the ancient Celtic Ogham (tree) alphabet.
Today I have a nice tree for you and I even think it needs no more explanation. So I will only give the "spiritual" meaning today to inspire you. Fir ... is the tree for today and it's a beautiful tree that can become huge and that we will see back in its meaning. A true mystery this tree ...
Fir is a very tall slender tree that grows in mountainous regions on the upper slopes. Fir cones respond to rain by closing and the sun by opening. Fir can see over great distance to the far horizon beyond and below. Fir indicates high views and long sights with clear vision of what is beyond and yet to come. Also known as the Birth Tree. The needles are burned at childbirth to bless and protect the mother and baby.
Fir can see into the future and is a very useful tree in divination. So this tree is really wonderful ... and not only in its meaning, but also as seen in nature.
