What Tree Am I?

For kicks, I took an online test to see what tree I am and it turns out that I am an Oak. Below are the results of my test. If you are interested in determining what tree you most identify with, here is the link for the test:

In the book "Nature-Speak" by Ted Andrews, the Oak with its energy is said to awaken great strength and endurance, even through trying circumstances. It also helps to manifest a stronger and more active sense of helpfulness towards others. Oak has strong ties to the realm of nature spirits and provides energies to open the doorway to the inner realms and their mysteries in meditation, magic and real life. As I read this definition, it fits me pretty well. Take the quiz yourself and see if your tree fits you.

Have fun with it!

My results from the quiz...

You Scored as The Oak

In Celtic astrology, you're an Oak, the most sacred of trees. The animal symbol that accompanies this tree is the wren. The ancient Druids say Oak people are wise, strong, responsible, self-motivated, optimistic and good leaders in the face of adversity. However, Oaks may be prone to being overly serious or intense.

So much FUN...I'm going right over to the quiz dear, strong oak. I'll let you know.

I love your words and photos. Isn't blogging amazing, but what is hard is keeping track and trying to answer folks. So much going on in our world.

Sending joy,

Barbara,

Funny, I had an inkling I'd be an Oak and that's what I turned out to be. Hope the test turns up some interesting results for you as well!

Hi Sharon,

Thanks for your nice comments! I checked out your website and blog (wonderful by the way!) and agree with what you said over there- that writing requires lots of stillness and alone time. My alone time will be in short supply over the next two months as I move into a house a few towns away from here. Exciting but busy time!

Enjoy your summer,

Darcy

What a kick! I ended up with a tie! It gave me a tie breaker question. After I read them, the best fit is the Willow. The other was the Ivy but the Willow was a little better fit. I like that it tells you the animal it is associated with. Hare. OMG, how fitting. :)
