Magical Trees Spread
On This Day
Trees are the longest-living organisms on our planet, receiving 90 percent of their nutrition from the atmosphere and only 10 percent from the soil. Acting as lungs for our planet, they breathe in carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen.
On this day in 1872, Nebraskans celebrated the first Arbor Day. Created as an observance to plant and maintain trees, it is now celebrated by many other countries, usually in springtime.
Summation of Spread
The Four of Cups depicts a Tree of Knowledge behind the seated figure. Trees are sacred symbols that represent strength, knowledge, and wisdom on any tarot card. They stand as a reminder of reach, root, and sturdiness.
Herbs, gems, and flowers all have magical associations, and so do trees. This spread is infused with the magical attributes of wise trees that remind us to slow down, take life at our own pace, and bask in the value of patience.
