July 8 – August 5
The Celtic lunar month of Holly is the perfect time to celebrate your achievements and to focus on your future.
Action, Assertion, Objectivity
In Celtic tradition, Holly is associated with the winter realm and represents dealing with the darker days with dignity and honour. When all other flora has become dormant during the winter, the strong Holly is still blooming bright and green against the stark landscapes. This symbolizes the ever-present life force even in darker times. Let your beauty shine even in times of dormancy.
The Celts used Holly to brighten up their homes and as a symbol of good luck and just as the Oak attracts lightning; Holly in turn repels it and so is also recognized as a symbol of protection.
The Holly tree is associated with subconscious and dreams and ancient druids invoked the holly energy for spiritual journeying and dreamwork. Call upon the Holly when feeling defensive and angry. It will protect and elevate you to victory and love.
