Thanks for the kind words. Like The Warrior, this card speaks to me.

Ogham and the Celtic calendar, and then gurgle as to what
is the most truly and hurrahful version (as experts must).

That means I get to decide for myself just as I please!
...I like the idea of "starting" the year right after harvest time:

MUIN Sep 2 - Sep 29 (Vine)
GORT Sep 30 - Oct 27 (Ivy)
NGETAL Oct 28 - Nov 24 (Reed)

RUIS Nov 25 - Dec 23 (Elder)
BETH Dec 24 - Jan 20 (Birch)
LUIS Jan 21 - Feb 17 (Rowan)

NION Feb 18 - Mar 17 (Ash)
FEARN Mar 18 - Apr 14 (Alder)
SAILLE Apr 15 - May 12 (Willow)

UATH May 13 - Jun 9 (Hawthorn)
DUIR Jun 10 - Jul 7 (Oak)
TINNE Jul 8 - Aug 4 (Holly)
COLL Aug 5 - Sep 1 (Hazel)

Given dates by Gerry Maguire Thompson

Funny thing too, here: these 13 months dovetail
the 12 signs of the zodiac in a very magical way...
This is a very interesting approach.

Are the trees of "the traditional" associations? & are the trees also seen as of the "male" or "female" energies?

This may be a lot to ask but can ye explain the relationship of the 13 months to the 12 signs of the Zodiac (I see that the 13 months are based on the lunar cycle).

Thanks!

Envision the Signs as following the Moon & Sun:
XI < XII < I < II < III < IV....V > VI > VII > VIII > IX > X

By the Moon:
XI < XII < I < II < III < IV
Saturn Jupiter Mars Venus Mercury MOON

By the Sun:
V > VI > VII > VIII > IX > X
SUN Mercury Venus Mars Jupiter Saturn

Combined, the Moon & Sun rule for sixty days, and too
we see this is the case with Saturn, and Saturn alone.

___________

Of the Celtic Lunar Months, two are especially Key
when making a comparison with the Zodiac:

TINNE (Holly) July 8 through August 4
Balanced amounts of Cancer & Leo (Moon & Sun)

BETH (Birch) & LUIS (Rowan)
Signs of Capricorn & Aquarius (Saturn)

___________

If this much intrigues, and there is any interest in
how the overall comparison may be viewed through,
my further notes on this are quite simple and clear.
Mainly if anyone's interested to draw some pictures.

I guess this didn't make much sense, and I understand.
It's the kind of thing where one has to consider lots of
different aspects, like both astrology and Ogham, and
their significance to/for the Tarot in general or at all...

Fulgour: I truly appreciate the time & care invested in the reply. I can relate to the tree associations, but do not know enough of the Astrology to extrapolate appropriately (got lost somewhere between the planets) & nothing of Ogham (too little of Runes to assist).

Still something to reflect on, so thanks very much. I made a copy just in case.
