Celtic signs originated from the Celts. ‘Celts’ are the people who have been thriving through the ancient times and are also flourishing in the modern times. Oftenly referred as cultures, languages and people who are based in Ireland, Scotland, Brittany in France and different parts of the British Isles.
These people are intimately tied to the nature who followed the seasons and based their zodiac signs on the Lunar cycle, laying special importance on animals and trees. These people felt a close connection to animals, and laid emphasis on analysing the specific characteristics of different animals.
Eventually they started drawing specific meanings from the qualities associated with different animals. Later, the Celts started observing the behaviour of humans and animals and discovered that there was a correlation between the Celtic animal meanings and Celtic zodiac signs. Ultimately, Celtic animal zodiac signs were designed in relation to the zodiac signs based on lunar cycles. These signs are a little different from the zodiac signs that people generally follow.
