Celtic Astrology


I found this terribly interesting when I read about it in Helena Paterson's "Celtic Tarot" Book. But now come to found out that it is all hogwash?

What are your thoughts on this? Does anyone use Celtic Astrology?

Citing the above text:

Quote:
Joseph Monard's Coligny based Zodiac

The most trustworthy model that remains is Joseph Monard's Astrological Order. Monard's system has the quality of relying on the standards of scholarly research backed by a solid knowledge of Celtic linguistics and traditions. Monard was the first to suspect that there were astrological indications on the Coligny Calendar. These being marked by the abbreviated inscriptions Prin, Prinn. for Prinni. (< PRENNOS: or Uidus = "tree" for cusp, a mathematical point marked by the House's ascendant.

PRINNIOS: - zodiacal constellation, - zodiacal period, w. for w. arborescence). No point now in ignoring the fact that the tree signs, the Prenes < Prinnoi, refer to the constellations. Monard's research on the Coligny Calendar so far supersedes everything written on Celtic Astrology.

LIBRA, MANTA the Scale; CANTLI PRINNIOS (of song, cycle-settling), September/October, tree sign: Lemos (Elm-tree).

SCORPIO, SGORPIU the scorpion; SAMONI PRINNIOS (of the meeting, summer-end), October/November, tree sign: Sappos (Fir-tree).

SAGITTARIUS, UARCUSTOS the archer; DUMANNI PRINNIOS (darkening), November/December, tree sign: Salixs (Willow).

CAPRICORNIUS, GABROS or IOCOS the goat; RIURI PRINNIOS (frost), December/January, tree sign: Olioiaccetos (Mistletoe).

AQUARIUS, DUPROSOPOS the water-bearer; ANAGANTI PRINNIOS (inactive, punning with calamitous), January/February, tree sign: Aballlos (apple-tree).

PISCES, EISCOI the Fishes; OGRONI PRINNIOS (cold), February/March, tree signs: Padis (Pine-tree), Scopos (broom).

ARIES, PUTIOS the ram; CUTI PRINNIOS (fiery, punning with ram), March/April, tree sign: Deruos (oak).

TAURUS, TARUOS the bull, GIAMONI PRINNIOS (of the buds), April/May, tree sign: Squiats/Spetes (Hawthorn).

GEMINI, EMNI the twins, SEMIUISONI PRINNIOS (capricious-breezed), May/June, tree sign; Uernos (Alder).

CANCER, CARABOS the Crab, EQUI PRINNIOS (adjusted, punning with equos/epos = "horse"), June/July, tree sign: Abolos/Cormisio (Servive-tree).

LEO, LEU the Lion, ELEMBIUI PRINNIOS (fawn, punning with "of claims"), July/August, tree sign: IUOS/EBUROS (Yew).

VIRGO, MAGULA the Maiden, EDRINI PRINNIOS (of arbitration, connotation: "hot flux" Aedrinios), August/September, tree sign: Idato/Critacos (Aspen).
What are the personality attributes to the above mentioned trees of the Celtic Zodiac? Is there a correlation with vedic (?) or modern astrology & celtic, as it is described by Monard (Boutet), above?
