Tree Spirit Tarot

 

Tree Spirit Tarot recounts the mythical and historical stories of 78 trees and their impact on our personal and collective understanding. The Tarot is a deck of 78 illustrated cards that originated in 15th century Italy, but its roots may date back to ancient Egypt or Mesopotamia. It is based on the triumphs and challenges we face throughout life. The Tarot is divided into two groups: The Major Arcana of 22 cards,and the Minor Arcana of 56 cards. The word arcana is based on the Latin word arcanus, meaning hidden secret. 

Major Arcana (important secret) represents 22 archetypal aspects of our life’s journey. It is helpful to imagine the major arcana arranged in a circle versus a line to visualize it as the wheel of life. By bringing these stories to consciousness we awaken our inner wisdom and return to ourselves as whole (holy). 

Minor Arcana (lesser secret) represents 56 cards that are divided into four suits based in the four elements of life: fire, water, air and earth. These elements symbolize the functions of life that influence and support our journey. 

The entire contents of Tree Spirit Tarot are available on line at: treespiritwisdom.com

If you wish to have a physical copy of the book or tarot deck they are available for purchase independently. I am still looking for a publisher who can create a box set.
