What Tree Are You?  
You scored as The Vine. In Celtic astrology, you're a Vine (not everything on the zodiac is a tree). The animal symbol that accompanies this plant is the swan. The ancient Druids say Vine people are graceful, discriminating, perceptive, romantic and have good aesthetics. However, Vines may be prone to procrastination and anxiety. They may also appear emotionally detached or even stuck-up.

Anything that says 'celtic' and I'm all over it! lol I guess this suits me.. ;)

You scored as The Hazel. In Celtic astrology, you're a Hazel. The animal symbol that accompanies this tree is the salmon. The ancient Druids say Hazel people are creative, artistic, expressive, imaginative and perceptive. They often make good teachers. However, Hazels may be prone to being overly analytical, morose or preoccupied in their own thoughts.

That's what I told my cousin's aunt (not related to me but might as well be). Anyways... we were talking about the local Celtic Faire and I was telling her that I love everything Celtic but I'm partial to Scottish stuff.

She looked at me and asked if I'd read a book set in Scotland. She was so very serious... like it was urgent that I said yes and so I did. She recommended the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon (if you've read it then forget it or rant with me). She wouldn't even tell me anything except it is about a Scottish man and his wife. She told me it was the best and I had to read it. Well she did say it was about a marriage and that was what she liked most about it.

It took me months to actually look for the books but once I did I never looked back. I mean now I know what she meant. She got me totally hooked on these books and I act like a raving mad woman when anyone asks me about them.... not that you did but you said Celtic and while maybe this doesn't completely qualify... well it does because he's got that Scottish accent and he's so Scottish and he's wonderful.

I'm a nut. Yes, I know. I don't know if your a big reader or anything but if you haven't read this series and you want to emerse yourself into a Scottish life... so worth it.

Just in case you don't know:
The first book (Outlander) is about a woman (really) who is in Inverness, Scotland with her husband on a kind of second honeymoon after the war... set in the 40s... then she stumbles through standing stones (like stone hedge) and ends up in 1743. She ends up HAVING to marry a Scottish man named Jamie to keep out of the hands of the evil Englishman (she's English). And things only it better and worse from there.

If you haven't read this story then I should say there are adult themes in the books.

Please let me know your thoughts.

HOLY AWESOMENESS!
I am SO all over this!!!

I've never heard of the series, but already I'm intrigued.

1. Scotland. OH YEAH! I think I should have been born in Ireland or Scotland. I spent one summer interning with a jeweler in Dublin, it was the great and 1/3 of my cd's are Irish music and that is A LOT! They have their own shelf!

2. then she stumbles through standing stones (like stone hedge) and ends up in 1743 COOL! That's totally my kind of story.

I can't say I'm a voracious reader, but every now and then I go through phases. I'm definitely going to look this up. Thanks so much!!!! :)

Re: HOLY AWESOMENESS!
Eeek... I'm so excited I could suggest this to you!

Order of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander Series:
Outlander
Dragonfly in Amber
Voyager
Drums of Autumn
The Fiery Cross
A Breath of Snow and Ashes

Just so you know. If you actually pick up the first book and get half way through and are totally in love with the story.... buy the others quickly. The first one doesn't have a cliff hanger, really, but it was like torture to wait for the next book to come. Dragonfly has a cliffhanger like ending... and the others pretty much connect. You may need tissues and if you like the books I wish to hear from you! ;-D

Re: HOLY AWESOMENESS!
