Proverbs of the Moment
Gaelic Proverbs come primarily from the western Highlands and Islands of Scotland, and they have a distinctly rural or agricultural flavor which reflects
the society from which they were gathered. It is to be expected that many of them pertain to the weather, to the planting of crops, and to country life
in general. Others reflect the Gaelic love of company and hospitality, fear of poverty and laziness.
Is fhearr bloigh le ‘bheannachd na bloigh mò le mallachd.
Better a small portion with a blessing than a large portion with a cursing.
Few countries have a greater number of proverbs than has Scotland. Even today, everyday speech in Scotland is
sprinkled with them. Scots are wonderfully given to this way of speaking, and the lovely Scots tongue loses much
of its flavor when forced to translate their unqiue language. Those that appear in English have been preserved
that way for at least 200 years!
Four-and-twenty tailors canna mak a man.

The Celtic Zodiac
The Ash, 2/19 - 3/17
Read more about your Celtic Zodiac sign!
The Ash was a sacred chieftain tree, believed to "court the flash" since it was prone to be struck by lightning. The wood of the Ash was thought to be enchanted and was used by the Druids to fashion wands and spears. Its twigs were placed in circles as a protection from snakes, while witches would use the timber as handles for their broomsticks. Children would be passed through the branches of an Ash in order that they might be protected and to cure them from illness. Ash leaves were placed under pillows to induce prophetic dreams or placed in bowls of water to ward off ailments. The Celts believed that the Ash originated in the Great Deep or the Undersea Land of Tethys. It belongs to the trilogy of sacred Irish trees (the other two being the Oak and the Hawthorn) and is said to offer particular protection from death by drowning. The seeds of the Ash have long been used in love divination. If the seeds did not appear on a certain tree, then its owner was thought to have been unlucky in love or a future venture would be unsuccessful. In Northern England, it was once believed that if a woman placed an Ash leaf in her left shoe, then she would be fortunate enough to immediately meet her future spouse. In Greece, the Ash was sacred to the Sea God Poseidon and in Ancient Wales and Ireland, oars were made of this wood. The shade of this tree is said to be harmful to plants because its roots will strangle other roots.
