Fortunately The Wisdom of Trees
only came out in 2012 so is still widely available.
The art on the cards is nicely done and the hardback guidebook that comes with them shows them all again in colour, the same way as The Shaman's Oracle
from the same publisher.
The trees included are a mixture from all over the world e.g. Baobab, Olive, Giant Redwood, Camphor, Ash. The book includes brief factual information and the botanical name for anyone wanting to do further research.
The deck has been divided into 4 suits of 10 cards each - Roots (Being), Trunk (Healing), Leaf (Wisdom) & Flower, Fruit and Seed (Power).
The divinatory part consists of a keyword, a message from the deva or tree spirit (similar to The Shaman's Oracle
, an upright meaning and a reverse meaning. Picking a card at random as an example of each:
Silver Birch: "I am the mother of the forest. My trunk and branches look delicate, but I am strong because I bend with the wind. If you work with me I will teach you how to cleanse your body and your spirit to find peace and complete health".
Use your intuition and instincts to tune in to the major themes of your life. Meditation will help you to still your mind so that inspiration can strike, and creative visualization will help you to plan your life's path.
An important element is missing from your life, leaving you feeling incomplete. It will help to reconnect with nature in all her forms, but particulary by tending a garden or simply by being outdoors amid vegetation.
Well that is neat - as well as giving me a card from each suit - Leaf, Trunk, Flower..., Roots, those last two came out upright and reversed
