This is a potentially tricky pair that I recently saw in a relationship reading. Tree is most often read as health when following Lenormand traditional readings, but if reading about a relationship, it’s likely appropriate to put a different spin on the card.


Tree + Bear

Tree, besides health, speaks of something that is long-standing; it has “roots.” This longevity can mean a meaningful or karmic connection; and on the flip-side it could show boredom, and perhaps inertia. The Bear is often an authority figure, and can indicate strength, fortitude, courage or conviction. It may also be jealousy, or being indistrious.

For this pair, cast in terms of relationships, I’d say there is a long-standing and strong relationship.


Bear + Tree

In general terms, I’d be thinking about the health of a person — perhaps an authority or boss — who is represented by the Bear. More generally it could mean that someone or something has been strong for a long time. For a relationship question, this could mean that someone has been strong and faithful; similar to the first pair, but more emphasis is on a person (or the people) rather than the relationship itself. I would also be more inclined to see the boredom meaning from Tree sneak into this one.

What do you think?
