Celtic Tree Calendar

They thrive on change, becoming impatient with convention or restriction, artistic and original; they can appear detached and aloof. Rowans need an outlet for their powerful imagination or they can become restless and quarrelsome.

Activities
This is a good time of year to perform initiations (or, if you're not part of a group, do a self-dedication). The Rowan is associated with astral travel, personal power, and success. A charm carved into a bit of a Rowan twig will protect the wearer from harm. The Norsemen were known to have used Rowan branches as rune staves of protection. In some countries, Rowan is planted in graveyards to prevent the dead from lingering around too long.
