Qualities & Traits of the Rowan Essence – ‘The Thinker’:
Ogham tree astrology recognizes Rowan signs as the philosophical minds within the zodiac. If you were born under the Rowan energy, you are likely a keen-minded visionary, with high ideals. Your thoughts are original and creative, so much so that others often misunderstand from where you are coming. This sometimes makes you aloof when interacting with others as you feel they wouldn’t understand where you are coming from anyway. Nevertheless, although you may appear to have a cool exterior, you are burning within from your passionate ideals. This inner passion provides inner motivation for you as you make your way through life. You have a natural ability to transform situations and people around you by your mere presence. You are highly influential in a quiet way and others look to you for your unique perspectives. Rowan pairs well with Ivy and Hawthorn signs.

'Day-dreamer, switched off, avoidance of present, feeling unequal to the task, lack of responsibility, disliking/rebelling against authority or repressed.
Rowan will bring a feeling of protection, intuition, deeper insights, responsibility and divine guidance.
Rowan flower essence helps to accept and take responsibility for behaviour and actions that have caused pain or suffering. Negative emotions that are not resolved can manifest again in other situations and relationships that have nothing to do with the original trauma. In some instances, this may mean reaching back into the past to process events, learn from the experience and make amends.
The rowan is also incredibly diverse in its growth, often growing inside other trees, in craggy riverbeds, and in other seemingly impossible locations. This is a powerful analogy for us to find our divine connection in unorthodox places. Sometimes are finest and highest calling is discovered when/where we least expect.
Lastly, the rowan was a popular sign of Samhain festivities, and to this day viewed as an auspicious Samhain/Halloween symbol.
Call upon the energy of the rowan when you are in need of clarity in your life situation, or protection from lower (negative) vibrations that you may be encountering. Consider the fresh vibrancy the rowan has to offer combined with the clean bright berries that seem to sing out cheerfully throughout the forest. Such visions and invocations will transform your own vibrations causing you to see more light and promise infuse your days.'
