The Green World Oracle focuses on trees and plants as primal symbols of life. Each has an oracular voice, as do the nature spirits, devas, and deities associated with them. Trees speak to us of living in balance with all of life. People often refer to their "roots," the "fruits" of their labor, trees of wisdom, and trees of good and evil. Abused women in Greek mythology are rescued by being turned into trees; children are born from them; gods like Osiris are entombed in them; sacred fire is struck from them; the voice of Moses’ deity came from one. We plant a tree to celebrate a wedding, a birth, or to mourn a death. Humankind has always sensed the presence of spirits, or "otherness," around trees. This oracle gives voice to their rich, caring insights. Author: Jenks, Kathleen. Number of pages: 256.
