While the Celts were closely connected to the sacred trees in their environment, they undoubtedly felt a deep affinity for the animals that surrounded them as well. These included land animals such as the deer, the wolf, and the bull; creatures of the air like the wren and butterfly; and those from the water, like the salmon and the seahorse. Each of these Celtic animals offers characteristics that might be a perfect match for you.

Are you the kind of person who sticks with a task all the way to the end? Are you reliable and someone that people trust to follow through on what they say? If you're proud and someone with high ideals and aspirations, there's a good chance that you're going to be a great match for the deer or stag.

On the other hand, maybe you're someone who spends the bulk of their time texting, talking on the phone or hanging out with friends. Perhaps you flutter around from one thing to the next, constantly brightening people's day as you pass by. If you relate to those statements, it seems clear that you might just be a butterfly.

There's plenty of other animals that might be a better fit. Grab a pint, pull up a chair, and let's get this hunt underway.
