Celtic Zodiac Sign:
June 10 -
Personality Introduction for This Celtic Animal Sign:
Greetings dear Wren! You grace the zodiac with special qualities. Stuff like loyalty, passion and imagination. There is so much you have to offer the rest of the world. The trick for you is to recognize your value...really believe in yourself so that you may soar to new heights of self-expression.
Speaking of self-expression, you really don't have a problem with speaking your mind, per se. However, you often choose to withhold sharing your thoughts and ideas. That isn't to say you're not expressive. You know how to demonstrate your position. Just like your Celtic zodiac sign, the wren, you chose creative ways to share yourself and your views. The wren is renowned for its elaborate, complex song. It's been hailed as one of the loveliest music-makers in the bird realm. You are too. You sing a song of devotion, creativity and loyalty. If you love something or someone, you show it in tender ways. You craft your own sweet song that you sing in terms of nurturing, providing and caring for others.
Wren song is extremely variable. They seem to use every pitch on the scale in their music. You do too, but your pitch is emotion. You play your emotions like Mozart pounded the piano. Meaning, you use every key available to unlock emotional doors. This is a highly specialized skill. It means you are more in tune with emotions than most people. It can also mean challenges. Sometimes you may feel so emotionally overwhelmed, it's hard to sort everything out. You're challenge is to resist feeling controlled by your emotions. Rather, identify the melody of your feelings, and try to let them roll in harmonic ways.
Another interesting point about your Celtic zodiac sign is in your contradictions. Like the wren, you value home life. The wren rarely migrates like other birds. Nope. Once it finds a spot, it's tendency is to burrow in and stay there. In fact, some species of wrens are called Troglodytes, which means cave-dweller, or burrowers. You can relate to that, dear one. You appreciate the comfort of home. Your home is your safe place, and above almost everything else - security is vitally important to you. But this isn't to say you don't venture out. You do, when you have to. And when you must move out of your comfort zone, you do so with stoic bravery. Wrens do too. They may be tiny, but they move boldly. In fact, they are one of the highest flying birds of the avian clan. This points out another contradiction about you: You'd love to stay comfortably nested...but when you must branch out, you do so in bold, high-flying strokes.
While on the subject of movement, you wren signs have an interesting tactic. You'll tend to dart indirectly to your destination. In other words, you're not likely to take a conventional approach to fulfilling your needs. Wrens jet from one place or another. They are super-fast, and you never know from which direction they'll zoom. It's the same with you. You can take a zig-zag approach to reaching your goals. This also makes you quite unpredictable.
Being unpredictable isn't a bad thing in your case, dear wren. As mentioned, security is a big deal for you. Consequently, you tend to be very self protective. You don't like the idea of feeling vulnerable. The irony in this is that you're incredibly sensitive. Most people who know you would be surprised to learn that your feelings are easily hurt. You don't often show this about yourself, but little things can really cause you emotional pain. The bright side of this is that you're very skilled at finding ways to prevent damage. You might do this by stocking up on supplies in the event of a bad storm. Or, you might make back-up plans to insure you and your loved ones are cared-for in case disaster strikes. Emotionally, you can build up barricades to protect your feelings. Like the wren, you're super-sensitive to threat, and you make plans to avoid them at all cost.
Like your Celtic zodiac sign, the wren, you are quite sociable. In truth, you take social interaction to a whole new level. To explain, when you make a friend - he or she will be an acquaintance for life. Some types of wren often have the same partner for life, which is what you would prefer (given it's a safe, comforting relationship). Many wrens will mingle with other bird species. You do too. You don't judge. You're happy to share company and friendship with just about anyone. This is especially true if you detect someone is in need, or has problems you might be able to help solve. You're naturally intuitive, which gives you the ability to see if a person is struggling. Because of your inborn sympathetic-streak, you're quick to offer assistance. People often say you're a great listener, and you have a knack for making them feel better.
Those of you born under the Celtic animal sign of the wren are ruled by the water element. What does that mean? A couple of things. 1) It explains that element of emotion. Water is symbolic of feelings, dreams, intuition and sensory perception. The water that flows through your sign allows you to be incredibly empathic, which means you can sense other people's feelings before they speak a word. 2) Water is a healing element. This puts you in a good position to facilitate healing. This is especially true with emotional healing. In essence, you are the emotional Florence Nightingale of the zodiac.
The wren is governed by the Moon. The symbolic theme of the Moon deals with cycles of time, stuff that is hidden, mystery and magic. These are key-points you're quite familiar with. Like the wren, you tend to hole up in your emotional cave. You're okay with keeping to yourself, and you have no problems with keeping your true feelings a secret from others. In many ways, you are a complete mystery to other people. You're hard to figure out, dear wren. I think that works in your favor. Your ability to hide the true light of your identity is a form of protection. It's almost as if you have a secret identity. As a protective tactic, it works for you. Just bear in mind you are a brilliant, magical being. Withholding your true self from others kind of cheats them from knowing how truly magnificent you are.
There are several tales of the wren in European folklore and Celtic myth. One legend speaks of the wren earning the title, "king of all birds". It got this claim to fame in a high-flying competition. At first, it seemed the eagle won the contest, as it flew the highest of all the birds. In truth, a wren was piggybacking on the eagle. When the eagle pooped out, the wren took over and carried the eagle to the high-finish-line. What's that say about you? It's an illustration of how you, without even thinking about it, often swoop in to the aid of others. You're okay with helping others obtain their goals. In fact, you often find a sense of self when you lend a helping hand. This legend is also a testimony of how high you can fly when you put your mind to it.
In Celtic mythology, the Druids held the wren as a sacred bird. They were utterly enchanted with the wren's melodic bird song. In fact, the Druids would listen to the cryptic, complicated wren-song and derive meaning from it. In essence, they viewed the wren as an oracle, and their song (if interpreted correctly) was able to tell the future. This is relevant to you for a couple of reasons. 1) If someone wants to get to know you, they've got to be savvy about your often complicated message. It's not easy to crack your cryptic code, but when we figure out your messages - we're all amazed at your complexity. 2) You're kind of an oracle too. Because you are highly perceptive and intuitive, you're often able to 'predict the future'. This is especially true in money matters. You've got the gift of seeing trends. You often do well with investments, or putting your money in endeavors that pay off.
