An Acorn and the Ace of Wands

This time-lapse video shows the birth of a baby oak tree from a tiny little acorn.

It was shot by British filmmaker Neil Bromhall over an eight month period.

While I was watching it, I couldn’t help but think of the Aces in the Tarot. I often describe them as seeds, and here’s a seed, growing right in front of us.

I know this acorn is actually growing into the earth, so the Ace of Pentacles would be an obvious comparison. But I think of the Ace of Wands when I watch the film.

It’s the push up from the earth that impresses on me, the little tree’s stretch for the sky. It’s reaching towards the Sun, the home of all fire.

Whatever Ace you might think of, this acorn helps remind us that all great ventures start from the very tiniest of beginnings.
