The Tree is the card of good health and strength. It brings positive developments and growth in all areas. It’s grounded, steady, and confident. Under its influence, we’re at ease with our disciplines and with making consistent effort without attachment to outcomes. So our work bears fruit and we’re happy with the results. The Tree overcomes nearby negative cards, but in a health context or with other health cards, it can reveal issues or conditions that require attention.
IN THE PORTRAIT & GRAND TABLEAU
On the first card of the nine-card portrait, the Tree suggests that we take time out and think things through. On the central card and all other positions, it foretells positive growth in a desired directions. We need to grow beyond our circumstances and be larger than life as it were. It helps us put things into perspective, and achieve a balanced outlook. In this sense, the Tree guides us to trust the process of life and realize that we can neither rest on our laurels nor dwell on our problems.
In the Tableau, the Tree near the significator is positive, overcomes nearby negative cards, and promises good health. When far, the Tree remains positive but becomes more susceptible to negative cards. Whatever the challenge, we must work through it diligently but remain calm throughout.
The Tree invites us to take care of our physical and mental health. It encourages us to plant the seeds for anything we’d like to see bloom in our life – and then taking care of those seed. It advises us to learn from experience, ponder matters, take time out, be patient, and spend time in nature.
Meditating, taking a walk, and writing in a journal are positive Tree activities. The idea is to step back to reset and refresh our perspective. Balance, moderation, and going within are key.
