The ancient celts once worshipped trees that they believed were spirits and certain objects that they think the spirits live through. Their Celtic beliefs revolved around the magic properties of different trees. But, they needed some way to transcribe and preserve their ancient scripts so they came up with the Celtic Tree Alphabet, more officially known as “Ogham” They were using this language from the fourth to the tenth century. They say that they named the alphabet after the Irish God Ogma and used it as a way to connect their beliefs to the magic of the trees in a written language.

Now centuries later, and the Celtic alphabet still holds some power. People tend to be drawn to one over the others. Despite just looking like crossed lines, each one of these symbols can reveal the inner parts of your personality. Which one would you chose?
