What's Your Celtic Horoscope?

You Are A Weeping Willow Tree
You are a dreamer, and you're into almost any kind of escapism.
Restless and capricious, you love to travel to exotic places.
You are easily influenced by others, as long as they don't pressure you.
You tend to suffer in love until you find that one loyal, steadfast partner.
An empathetic friend, you love to make others smile and laugh.

Actually my favorite deciduous tree. I came up as a Willow on some other stuff too, a while back. I like how Willow is obviously a very Piscean tree, but there's lots of folklore about willows, and it's not fluffy or nice. There's an old lore-poem about 'sentient' trees:

Ellum (Elm) do grieve,
Oak he do hate
Willow goes walkin'
If you stays out late


Not sure where I heard it, but as far as I know it's English and goes pretty far back. Tolkien used tree-lore like this in his books, and Old Man Willow is very recognizable; willow trees were purported to go walking late at night and mutter to themselves in addition to leading travelers astray.

Plus, willows destroy mundane shit, and man-made things like sidewalks, septic tanks, pipes, etc.

And I kinda like that. :D
