Above is the Strength card from Tarot of Trees. Yesterday I drew this online at the Annikin Divination site, after a tree hugging morning in the area. I’ve had my eyes on this deck for a while, since I love trees and enjoy the painting style of the deck.
I think Stength is very apt considering the sheer size of the tree I was introduced to – grand, majestic, imposing and solid.
I climbed a little way up but didn’t get too far – the Fig tree has smooth bark and with the recent downpours (finally, rain) it was a bit slippery. So I just lied down on a branch, and looked at the vines and leaves and sky and low clouds and rising mists. And I felt small and supported and cared for all at the same time, in the small speck of eternity growing from its roots to sky.
