Celtic Tree Magick – Hawthorn

13th May – 9th June

If your birthday lands during the 13th May – 9th June then you were born during the Celtic Tree Month of Hawthorn.

The hawthorn tree, also known as the May tree, is considered one of the most sacred trees in Celtic mythology. It is often associated with the fae and other supernatural beings, serving as a portal to the Otherworld.

Hawthorn trees are closely linked to the festival of Beltane, which marks the beginning of summer. During Beltane, people would decorate hawthorn branches with ribbons and flowers to celebrate fertility and renewal. The connection to Beltane links the Hawthorn to the Angels of the Solar Plexus chakra, Archangel Uriel ‘Fire of God’ and Archeia Aurora ‘Dawn of the Goddess’.

Like these angel, Hawthorn has protective qualities. Sprigs of hawthorn are placed in homes and barns to ward off evil spirits and protect against lightning strikes. The Tarot associations to this tree are The Ace of Wands and the Lovers.
