Symbol Meanings in Tarot Cards - Plants

By Tina Gong


The archetype of plants are often seen as symbols of growth, and metaphorically can mean the growth of the spirit. Symbolically, they carry a life force, one which may wither only to grow again.

Tarot pulls its symbols from a vast pool of knowledge that we all share as humans. Carl Jung called this the collective unconscious. It's the same symbols that we use when our minds create dreams, weaving them into complex patterns whose meanings we strive to find in waking life.

We're producing a few supplementary guides on how to access some of the symbolism and mysticism with tarot. Find all of them on the blog!
