The clover card depicts the symbol of a three leaf clover, four leaf clover, or sometimes an entire patch of clover. We’re used to seeing the symbolism of clover in our society, so it should be no surprise to you that this symbol stands for luck. Examples of this symbol can be seen everywhere in modern society, including Good Luck Bear, the Care Bear cartoon character that is a bear with a green four leaf clover on his belly, and just about any St. Patrick’s Day, Luck of the Irish, or Leprechaun illustration. Trefoil is another name for the clover. You can also see the quatrefoil, a four petaled clover, as an ancient symbol has been popping up throughout fashion in such brands as Van Cleef & Arpels, for example. The quatrefoil reached a peak popularity in the Gothic and Renaissance eras, both in design and architecture, but it really began to be seen much earlier, in the earliest of Mayan communities. Even then it was a good luck symbol, of rain to come, and fertile lands. This clover indicates that you will soon come across a good deal of luck and fortune. It could be referring to luck in a spiritual sense, or it could be referring to the more standard luck definition of physical assets, money, or fame.
The tree is one of the most powerful symbols in our everyday lives. We see trees everywhere. It’s a yoga pose, a symbol of life, we even chart our families with trees and their branches. Trees represent earth’s circle of life. Without the soil and water from our Earth, they would surely die. Without them, animals and beings wouldn’t have air to breathe. The tree is one of the most important life giving plants in almost every culture. A tree is strong, grows tall, and is rooted into the ground. Trees are also symbolic of ritual, forest, spells, and different types of magic or magick.
A card with an image of a tree indicates that you are beginning to spread your branches. It may symbolize a baby that is about to come and that your family is beginning to grow. It may even symbolize multiple babies, children, or twins. A tree may also indicate that you will begin to branch out in your career and in the professional sense. You may be about to step out of your comfort zone and begin accepting new challenges. Additionally, a tree could mean that you need to take a look at the life you’ve built and make sure the roots are sturdy. Do you have a water source that is not the clearest? Have you been true to your faith and yourself? Is your root system strong? Do you have a friend that is untrue?
Tyler Perry is a famous actor and comedian based in Atlanta, Georgia. Growing up, he was raised predominately by southern African-American women, and that’s who many of his characters are based upon. His most famous character, Madea, who is played by himself dressed in women’s clothing, is a combination of everyone’s mother and grandmother. Madea says that friends and relationships are like trees. Some friends, Madea says, are like leaves. They drink our water and hang out on our branches, but they’re gone with the wind. We have thousands of those types of leaves. Some friends are like branches, they’re there for the majority of the time but when things get rough and the storms come, they’re breaking off. We have a couple dozen of those. But our true friends, our brothers and sisters, are our roots. They come few and far between, and they’ll never leave us no matter what happens until our dying day.
When the Cover is seen with the Tree, lady luck is upon you as you decide to spread your branches. Your roots are growing out in a positive direction as well. This indicates that there may be some family growth like a new addition to the family or even a stream of luck hitting each branch of the family already spread out. This could be family off to college or family moving to the same neighborhood or even a new baby coming to the family. In this case, the clover and tree together most likely has to do with a romantic relationship, such as “lucky in love”. Your family could be growing with plans to combine with another family.
The Clover is represented by the number 2, and the Tree is represented by the number 5. When we combine them we get the number 7.
Seven is often considered lucky. Many people choose to get employ dates with 7’s as their anniversary or wedding dates. Recently, 07/07/07 was a big wedding day where hundreds of thousands of couples got married all over the world. You also see lucky number 7 on casino advertisements and as a winning spin on slot machines. In time, 7 can refer to the 7th day, 7th month, or 7 years. Or also combinations of years, like 2017.
The number 7 hopefully indicates that your financial news will be good, but it may also indicate 7 days until the news, or 7 weeks, or 7 months. This could be the time that your investments have been waiting to take off, or the time it takes for the financial news to get to you. 7 may be in the numbers of the investment itself or it could be 7 years of investing that got you to where you are able to put the investment towards something new. 7 in this case may be the number of months of an engagement or the number of days, weeks or months that mark the arrival of a new baby.
