Druantia is the Celtic Goddess of fir trees and fertility. Her names derives from the Indo-European root “deru” meaning tree or wood. Also called the Queen of the Druids, Druantia is associated with the fertility of both plants and humans, ruling over sex and passion. She is credited with the creation of the Celtic tree calendar, which divides the year into 13 months that correspond to the cycles of the moon. One association that is frequently mistaken with Druantia is with the Dryads—while both were magical beings who ruled over trees, the Dryads were Greek, not Celtic.
