The essence

Just as the Oak itself people who need their essence are often big, strong, protective, bearing responsibility, are self-sacrificing, tireless and persistent. But in one aspect the Oak tree as a plant is one step ahead: it knows when it‘s time to pull back, take a break and relax. Oaks throw off their leaves in the fall just like yesterday‘s worries. Their fresh green in spring proves that it did the recover well.


Taking a break is a lesson that you can learn in a good as well as a bad way, but it can not be avoided when you‘re an Oak personality. The good way lets you estimate your strength and deal with it economically, you simply enjoy more and toil less. The bad version of the lessen forces you to pause by sending a disease, one caused by carelessness, accident, a breakdown - whatever it is, the lesson is definitely more bitter than once to put your feet up and enjoy your evening.

If you find it difficult to have a break when there still is so much to do - try Oak.
