THE OAK TOPS ENTANGLED
THERE IS HOPE FOR THE TREES
The oak tree is both fatherly and dominating. The qualities of the oak tree are strength, power, wisdom, and endurance. The bark, wood, leaves, buds, and acorns could be used in spells which concern fertility, balance, protection, and success. The leaves could be burned for purification, the acorns to draw wealth or love divination and the wood could be burned to attract good health.
The oak tree is masculine, an element of fire and, in the Tarot deck, is connected with, the Emperor. The Emperor has learned to take command in an intellectual manner. He sits on a solid stone slab throne and sets the standard of behavior. With reason, he creates order out of chaos and builds structure or dictates regulations. The Emperor is a guide in logical matters, a protector and a provider.

Within each of us resided the Emperor’s qualities. The ability to take control of themselves and set positive directions to follow. With personal will, potential could be manifested. Life continually offers opportunities to further growth. You choose the manner in which the opportunities are accepted.
Each person possesses a wealth of talent to fulfill themselves, the strength to complete different tasks and the power to dream and then make them come true through action. Actions speak volumes. Firm allegiances and confident expectations build solid bonds. Mutual behaviors and attitudes create strong attachments. Try to allow your actions to be consistent and free from unuseful excess so the result would lead to lasting unions and a strong character.
By being introduced to the Tarot card the Emperor, I hope it will bring each knowledge about your own personal development, an insight into personal willpower could change a present situation and alter the outcome. You have authority over your own actions to overcome practical and personal problems and reach great potential. Your chosen actions and responses will govern whether you make something happen as well as let something happen in your lives.
