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 iomadh duine laghach a mhill an Creideamh.
Religion has spoiled many a good man.
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!
Do the likeliest and hope the best.

The Celtic Zodiac
The Holly, 7/8 - 8/4
Read more about your Celtic Zodiac sign!
In the Ogham, it was stated that the Holly was "best in the fight," since it helped balance both the positive and negative aspects of the self, thus revealing a new direction. It was believed to restore lost energy, bestowing the strength needed to continue toward a resolution. Despite its prickly leaves (which afford protection to the tree during Winter), the Holly offered empathy and understanding within its branches and was often associated with goodwill and love...virtues of certain Gods and Godesses. For this reason, it was frequently planted near homes for protection and to ward off evil, psychic attacks and demons. When Celtic chieftains chose a successor, that successor was crowned with a Holly wreath and branches of the tree were carried by Celtic men for good luck. The Holly was said to ease thoughts of jealousy and mistrust while providing protection from evil spirits. Also reputed to tame wild beasts, babies were bathed in water from the leaves in order to protect them from harm.
The Holly (also known as "Bat's Wings" and "Christ's Thorn" among others) was thought to repel enemies and warriors would carry cudgels and fashion spear shafts made of its wood. As a symbol of good luck and good fortune, the Holly was the evergreen twin of the Oak in Celtic mythology and was often referred to by the name "Kerm-Oak." As the Oak ruled the light part of the year, thus did the Holly rule the dark. The Holly also represented the eternal, ever-green aspects of Mother Earth. With Ivy and Mistletoe, the Holly was regarded as a potent life symbol by virtue of its year-long f........ more
