THE CELTIC OAK

The Oak tree is a living legend, and King of the Tree realm.  It is a tree of strength and protection.

SYMBOLS OF THE OAK

Oaks are known for its size and longevity, and powerful life-affirming symbolic themes of fire, masculinity, durability, purity, constancy, crusader, robin, Stag, growth, doorway, call to adventure, security, pride, grace, primeval vigor, life, nurturing, wisdom, nobility, loyalty, power, longevity, honor, history, territoriality, ancestry, teacher, and knowledge.

FOLKLORE OF THE OAK

The Oak’s tower of strength has a regal presence and tendency to attract lightning.  It is associated with the Celtic god, Eochaidh Ollathair (Dagda).  The Dagda possesses superhuman strength, endurance, agility, magical powers to open portals, grant power to mortals, hurl energy, and perceive phenomenon on a cosmic scale.  He has power, mystical potential and more superhuman strength than any Celtic god, and may be equal to Zeus and Odin in power.

Ancient Celts recognized and honored the Oak as a clear sign of its noble presence, endurance, massive growth, impressive expanse, and as a spiritual doorway.  The ancient Europeans wore oak leaves as a sign of special status.  Known for its high tannin content, it is resistant to fungus, and used for making doors and boats.

There are accounts that trace the name “druid” to duir, the Celtic term for the Oak.  The actual translation of duir is “door” and lore indicates that witches can access the ethereal planes of higher thought by using the Oak as a door into magical places.  Druids met in oak groves and ate acorns to ingest the ancient knowledge contained in them.  Mistletoe grows best on the Oak, and is the most sacred herb of the Druids.
