Apple: Perth

Apple: Perth

Each of the Celtic trees correlates with a Rune. Runes are a twenty-four letter alphabet, originating with Germanic tribes as early as the 2nd century. Runic glyphs were carved or etched into bone, wood, leather, jewelry, tools, weapons, and stone. Norse and Viking runic artifacts dating as far back as the 9th century have been found in several Northern European and Scandinavian countries, Russia, Turkey and North America. Notably, runes found in Canada and the United States pre-date Columbus by several hundred years, so he was definitely not the first visitor.

The Celtic month of Apple, June 13 - July 10, is associated with:

Rune: Perth

Perth is at the heart of initiation. It is a mystery rune, symbolizing hidden matters and secrets. It can bring surprises with unexpected rewards, ultimately meant to give you a higher perspective through inner reflection. It is associated with the mythical phoenix, which consumes itself in the fire, then rises from its own ashes. Powerful forces of change are in motion, but pause and use discernment before sharing with someone else about your new, profound secret. 

The deepest core of our being holds the truth that nothing external matters, except as it reveals the inner wisdom gained from it. It is about renewal of spirit and the kind of transformation that impacts the rest of your life. Approach this phase with anticipation, rather than fear, and you will find yourself experiencing a beautiful period of growth and opportunity.

Do what lights you up,

Please note: Some people start the tree calendar with Birch in January, which follows the solar calendar. However, I learned them in an older tradition, which aligns with the 13-month lunar calendar. It's up to you to discern what feels right for you, of course.
