24th December-20th January
The birch is one of the first trees to shake off the bareness of winter and grow spring leaves, with its strength and energy viewed by the Celts as a symbol of youth. People born under this sign are full of vitality and often have a striking desire to achieve. You’re quick-witted and tenacious, so if you set out to do something – you usually succeed in achieving your goals. Those born under the new moon of the birch (in the first two weeks ruled by this tree sign) tend to be more introverted than those born under the full moon of the birch (in the second two weeks ruled by this sign), but all birch babies have a sunny, sparkly side to their personality and no trouble lighting up a room.
