Hawthorn: Unicorn

Hawthorn: Unicorn

The Celtic month of Hawthorn, March 21 - April 17, is associated with:

Symbol: Unicorn

According to The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit deck, UNICORN represents reconnecting to higher wisdom or divinity. The unicorn card appears to "wake us up" to curiosity about higher self and the divine. It is a card of questioning, exploring, and contemplating the inexplicable. The mind's eye knows there is something beyond everyday life, a deeper dimension to our experiences, and it reaches out to grasp something more. You are the unicorn, and you have begun your quest for answers. This card is connected to the third eye chakra, the exact place from which the unicorn's horn extends. Ancient yogis believed this chakra to be responsible for our intellect, intuition, and deepest wisdom. Some say our two eyes see the past and the present, while our third eye peers into the future.

If you've read the other posts associated with Hawthorn, you probably seeing there's a common thread through all of them--the ogham Huathe, the rune Hagalaz, the crystal topaz, the stag, and the tree itself--they're all about connecting to our intuition and maintaining healthy boundaries as we ride the adventures of life. At the end of it all, do we want to live a life of "hustle and grind" or wonder and joy?

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.
