About This Quiz

The ancient Celtic peoples were into animism, the idea that the Divine could be found in the nature around them and that animals themselves could be manifestations of spirits or gods. For the Celts, there were spirits in pretty much all things around them, from the birds in the sky to the snakes in the grass to the grass itself. For that reason, any animal that was part of their world held some kind of significance. A deer was never just a deer, and a rabbit was never just a rabbit. These creatures held meaning and were symbolic of something greater.

If you ever look into astrology, you might discover some Celtic astrology and what some people refer to as the Celtic zodiac. It's like your regular zodiac chart in that it divides the year up into lunar cycles and a different animal is assigned to each one, as opposed to star signs like the zodiac you're probably used to. That's because these animals were so significant to Celtic culture, their influence could be felt everywhere. Everywhere, you ask? Yes! Even in you! If you're curious to see what your Celtic spirit animal might be, you have one solution! Take the quiz, tell us about yourself, and discover with powerful creature lines up best with who you are!
