Oak teaches you that you need not sacrifice yourself to achieve your goals or be there for others. Much like the strength card in tarot, what makes you strongest is your vulnerability and ability to ask for help.
It taps you into the eternal part of yourself, or higher self. Allowing you to be firm, solid, and committed to your growth in ways that serve your highest good not just your worldly ambitions. Especially potent in helping you break patterns of “having to do things” a certain way, because of tradition and conditioning. It allows you to stay connected to this wisest part of yourself so that you can support yourself and others equally.
For those who try to give to others when their energy is totally depleted because it is what good people do.
Qualities: Rest, connecting to higher self, balancing giving and receiving, strength.
