Tree of Life / World Tree / Yggdrasil
Celtic people felt a deep connection to nature, especially towards trees. Trees were not simply inanimate objects to be used for food and shelter, but were also places to gather, with spiritual connections to ancestors, deities and the Celtic Otherworld. A symbol of strength, support and orientation. The tree grows its entire lifetime and the stronger the tree is rooted, the more it can hold and support. The more we are rooted (family, partner, friends), the more support, motivation and orientation we have.
