Landscape Zodiacs:

'The British Landscape Zodiac'. The Celts recognised both the equal-sign and unequal-sign zodiac, which archetypal pattern they laid out across the country as a landscape zodiac. They also used a ten-fold division of the zodiac. Later cultures, including the 16th/17th century Rosicrucians, recognised and worked with this landscape zodiac. It is a key to understanding British mythology, including Shakespeare, as well as the land of Britain.

Scotland and ireland also have their landscape Zodiacs. The Three Lands of Scotland, Ireland and Britain form a Trinity, mythologised as the Triple Goddess, which is a key to their evolution and role on the world stage.

Landscape zodiacs elsewhere in Europe and the world have also been discovered, researched and are gradually being made known for the benefit of humanity and nature.
