The fifteen-hundred-year-old Ogam alphabet is a magical and mysterious script, the Celtic equivalent of the Runes. Like the Runes, Tarot and I Ching, it is also used in divination, as an oracle which can teach us much about our fate and future. Unlike Tarot, whose cards depict a set of characters and situations, Ogam's twenty "tree Letters" are all named after woodland tress. You might well ask how trees can function as an oracle system, as a set of signs, omens and auguries. The fact is that each tree in the Tree Alphabet has a set of correspondences and meanings attached to it All the tree-letters are linked to figures or themes from Celtic mythology, and each has a unique wisdom to impart. Once they become familiar to you, you will find that the ancient tree-letters relate to your own particular circumstances, providing profound guidance and counsel.
