My Tree Analysis

Courtesy of Genie at Free Tarot Readings

WARNING: If you think you might want a free tree analysis, and you might, I strongly suggest you stop reading at this point and draw your tree NOW. Otherwise, reading my tree analysis could cause you to try to change the appearance of your tree. (NOTE- Genie says it's really difficult to alter your tree - kind of like trying to change your handwriting, so go ahead and read this and draw your tree later if you like.) :-)


Tree Drawing Instructions (from Free Tarot Readings blog)
Tree Drawing analysis is just like handwriting analysis but not nearly as in depth. I require a scanned or actual copy of your drawn tree. I prefer an actual copy, but most people don't want to bother. I don't need a return adress for it though, or real names, and I have a PO Box, so it's no problem for me.

Here is what I require for the tree. It needs to be drawn with pen, pencil, or crayons. Not markers. Not coloring pencils. It needs to be drawn on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of typing paper. It doesn't need to fill up the sheet unless the artist just happens to draw that way. The size of the tree is unimportant, the artist should draw the tree that's comfortable for them. A sheet of regular typing paper is what I offer my "artists" and it gives me a baseline. Long story, but it works for me.

The tree needs to be drawn from the mind's eye, not copied from a book, an actual tree, or some other source. It's not about art. I want Your tree. It doesn't matter if it takes 30 seconds or 15 minutes to draw it, however, I do cut people off after 15 minutes. If 15 minutes have passed and you are still drawing, stop, and send me what you've got. I need to know the age of the artist and how long it took them to draw the tree. I don't need to know gender. I want no explanation of the tree and I don't want to know anything about the person, although I can't help that if I already know you!

It is important that the artist was originally taught a language that is written from left to right. I cannot read trees or handwriting of someone who originally learned right to left writing.

MY TREE:



My Tree Drawing Analysis by Genie:

"Let’s start with the envelope. Clearly written and properly addressed, the sign of a good communicator who doesn’t mind following the rules in the interest of efficiency, convenience, and courtesy. Small hooks here and there in the writing expose someone who may be a bit of a collector, but not on a huge scale. And who doesn’t have a little bit of an acquisitive nature? This person also seems to have a somewhat reserved personality, people may sometimes read this as cold but I don’t think this person is cold at all. The handwriting on the enclosed letter shows a nice mixture of print/script, the sign of an efficient mind. I tore through all my handwriting analysis books to help me interpret the personal pronoun I as it was written in the sample I received. I failed to find what I was looking for. Here is the breakdown of what I see, the paternal portion of the personal pronoun I is longer on the left than it is on the right, this almost leads me to believe that the father influence was somehow cut off as the line ends disproportionately to the rest of the letter. This can happen when the father figure leaves, dies, or just checks out emotionally from being a father. The maternal portion of the eye slopes down. Most of the artist’s crossbars slope up, showing a strong work ethic and a brighter, more enthusiastic attitude in general, but not with the maternal figure. The maternal part of the I is the top bar, in this sample, the bar doesn’t go up as it does on all the artist’s other crossbars.

There are two ways to look at this and I cannot decide which is accurate for this analysis. The mother’s job is to protect us, nurture us, and keep us safe. We should have memories of being calmed by her presence, of clinging to her skirt as a young child and feeling safe under her shadow. So this drooping cross-bar on the top of the eye, is that what I see? Is it mother’s arm protecting the artist and the memory of safety there? Or is the line drooping? Is there disappointment in that drooping cross-bar? I do not know and my books are not helping me so the artist will have to fill me in. The tree does not indicate disappointment, anger, or anything especially negative about the maternal figure. My guess is that this drooping cross bar is a positive sign. Maternal portion of the I aside, the I itself shows confidence and independence.

The tree takes up the whole page. This person fills their life up. There’s not much room left for more, yet I bet this artist will cram it in if at all possible. The artist runs so close to all the edges, getting bills paid on time and meeting deadlines may be an issue due to being involved in so many things.

The branches reach up and out, the artist is likely very social and has many, varied interests. This is another very open and honest person with little to hide, although there is some attempt at covering up a bit. Not lying… don’t misunderstand, just that this person is nearly an open book. The way the leaves are drawn gives me the impression that the artist often tries to distract others from focusing on the artist’s personal problems and issues. The leaves seem to say, “No no, don’t look there, look here!” These personal problems seem to relate to mother/father issues (or just early life issues) as no leaves are drawn in the branches that reach into the part of the tree I refer to as the “here and now.” The “here and now” is clear of “decoy” leaves and are merely open branches with nothing to buffer the artist from the outside world.

The widespread branches show someone who is protective of home, friends, and family. S/he tries to keep everyone safe. S/he’s basically friendly, extroverted, and flexible.

Stress lines in the trunk speak of stress in life. Big surprise, who doesn’t have this? A knothole shows a traumatic event around the age of 30. This event would have occurred, most likely, before the age of 39. Complete recovery from this event is yet to come.

An orange line extends from the bottom of the roots all the way into the bottom most right branch. I would guess that this is an anger issue that may relate to a father figure, and it isn’t yet resolved.

Flattish roots extending from the base of the tree show strong family structure, a deep connection to the artist’s roots, but also a certain feeling of insecurity. There may be a constant struggle to keep a sense of balance. Many things can cause these feelings, including trauma, illness, or recovery (alcohol, drugs, etc.).

Overall, this is a well balanced tree showing a well-balanced person. The artist cares about his/her family and friends and their safety and comfort, cares about where s/he came from, is dynamic, intelligent, open, and is a very friendly person."

MY RESPONSE:

"This person also seems to have a somewhat reserved personality, people may sometimes read this as cold but I don’t think this person is cold at all." People assume I am rather cold all the time. I admit I am a bit shy, a bit reserved, before I actually get to know someone. I want to know I can trust them first. And due to this reservation I usually do come across as a bit cold. So, yes.

I do like to follow the rules most of the time, and as she says,"in the interest of efficiency, convenience, and courtesy." That's me all over. Right on.
I may be a bit of a collector, but not much. I used to collect Teddy Bears, gave that up long ago. I do like to keep a stock of various wines in the house, does that qualify as collecting, I'm not sure. (It may, I'm rather serious about it.)

..."the father influence was somehow cut off as the line ends disproportionately to the rest of the letter. This can happen when the father figure leaves, dies, or just checks out emotionally from being a father." My father died when I was 33 years old. He was an alcoholic, so he was nearly always "checked out emotionally." So, correct again.

Oh dear, we have to talk about my mother...... "Is it mother’s arm protecting the artist and the memory of safety there? Or is the line drooping? Is there disappointment in that drooping cross-bar?" Yeah, you could say there is a bit of disappointment.
"The mother’s job is to protect us, nurture us, and keep us safe. We should have memories of being calmed by her presence, of clinging to her skirt as a young child and feeling safe under her shadow." This paragraph almost made me cry. Yes, that IS a mother's job. Yet my mother NEVER did her job. I'm sorry to be this harsh, but the truth is, now that my mother is dead I'm more relieved than anything by her passing.

"This person fills their life up. There’s not much room left for more, yet I bet this artist will cram it in if at all possible." Oh yeah, that's me. Too many things I want, need, MUST do before the day, week, year, this life is over.

"the artist often tries to distract others from focusing on the artist’s personal problems and issues. The leaves seem to say, “No no, don’t look there, look here!"
Yeah, of course, who doesn't do this??? I admit, my life growing up was FULL of abnormal behavior from my parents. Embarrassing crap I'd rather distract ANYONE from knowing. Also, I am afraid that new people will find me a bit boring or stupid, so distraction, again, seems to work. So, right again.

"The widespread branches show someone who is protective of home, friends, and family. S/he tries to keep everyone safe. S/he’s basically friendly, extroverted, and flexible." Right on.

"A knothole shows a traumatic event around the age of 30. This event would have occurred, most likely, before the age of 39. Complete recovery from this event is yet to come." Hmmmmm......this is probably my father's death, which started a rift between my siblings and I...a rift that continues to this day. So, yeah.

"but also a certain feeling of insecurity. There may be a constant struggle to keep a sense of balance. " Maybe having been recently laid off?

And my favorite paragraph...."Overall, this is a well balanced tree showing a well-balanced person. The artist cares about his/her family and friends and their safety and comfort, cares about where s/he came from, is dynamic, intelligent, open, and is a very friendly person." Of course - well-balanced, dynamic, intelligent, open and very friendly!!1 Thanks for that! :-)

LOVED the reading Genie!!! Thanks so much!

Yea!!!!!!!!!! I'm always so relieved when someone doesn't write back, "You're an idiot!"

I think the trauma could possibly have been your father's death, you think? It was about the right time.

My instincts kept telling me it was disappointment in your "I" but the tree just didn't show these mother issues so I talked myself out of it. I was very torn about it overall, and frustrated that I couldn't find any help in my books. So I've learned a really valuable thing reading your tree, thank you!

Thanks for the feedback, it's incredibly helpful. And thanks for letting me read your tree!

Oh, and the roots, that instability could definitely be a temporary thing. I draw a tree every few months just to see how it changes over time. As your personality and feelings change, so does your tree.

Also, funny thing about tree reading, it's REALLY hard to change your tree in order to affect an analysis. It's like trying to change your handwriting. If someone thinks they know too much about tree drawing analysis, I just tell them to close their eyes, see THEIR tree, and draw it. We all have a tree in our mind's eye (if we close our eyes and look), knowing about tree drawing analysis doesn't change it enough to really matter.

I have never heard of tarot tree reading, sounds very interesting.
Your life description seemed to really capture you, from the bit I know from your blog.
Would like to try it.
Did not know I had a tree in my mind.
Can I email my tree drawing?

Rosemary - contact Genie at her blog. You can scan your tree and send it to her that way, although she says she prefers to have it mailed. Either way I think you'd enjoy it.
