This one of my favorite cards from the Shining Tribe Tarot. It shows the best meaning of this card.
The branches of the tree are reaching for the sky showing joy and strengh. The roots reflect the sky, the solar system. And finally there is this sense of togetherness when we look at the ten of trees.
As this is the last card of the suit representing closure I can say that it is a very nice way of ending this energetic path related to the element fire.
The image we see in the Rider-Waite Tarot and other decks, is often described as burden or heavy effort. But here we have a clear notion of sucess and happiness as something possible.
Thank you Rachel por emphasizing this.
