Beth Luis Nuin (or 13 Lunar Trees) is a major component of the belief structure of the Faerie Faith. It is based on the Celtic Lunar Tree Calendar, which begins on the Winter Solstice and ends after the turn of the year on the next Winter Solstice. Each moon has a tree correlation, which in turn is associated with an energy or mood. Each tree is also believed to be a life’s lesson that needs to be learned before the start of the next moon.

A basic run down of the Trees and their lessons are as follows:

First moon
Birch – sensitivity, compassion, awareness, communication, self-authority, and self- discipline

Second moon
Rowan – build upon what we learned in Birch; compassion, awareness,sensitivity, and communication, being able to communicate clearly with ourselves and our low self, in order to bring our prayers and wishes to fruition

Third moon
Ash – patience and control over unconscious urgings

Fourth moon
Alder – balance of yin and yang, male and female, fire and water

Fifth moon
Willow – learn from our experiences, both past and future, release ourselves from burdens of the past which will hinder our future growth

Sixth moon
Hawthorn – time of fasting, spiritual healing, cleaning out the body,abstinence, restraint, a time to clear away both the spiritual and physical deadwood and old habits; a time of clarity in which you can strengthen your dedication and focus

Seventh moon
Oak – this is the “gateway” between the 2 halves of the year. If you haven’t learned your “lessons” by this point, the upcoming half will be rocky and difficult.

Eight moon
Holly – the lessons for Holly are the same for Birch although they are much more important during the second half of the year as this is considered the “dark” half.

Ninth moon
Hazel – time of rest and reflection

Tenth moon
Vine – healing through creativity, inspiration

Eleventh moon
Ivy – emotional release, renewed hope, light at the end of the tunnel

Twelfth moon
Reed – discipline, security

Thirteenth moon
