The Blasted Oak (Tarot Meaning)
It is about the unexpected events in life, and how they can change your path as well as your perceptions. It also represents a "rude awakening", or a release from your old ways - something coming to an end. It can also represent happy circumstance. This card calls for a re-evaluation of current situations, and is often the impetus to a change.
