Alder: Confidence


Form the front line and harness your inner leader

Often the first tree to colonise bare ground, Alder encourages you to take initiative and blaze your own trail. Forge forward in tough conditions and through any challenges that might present themselves. Watch as your self confidence increases with every achievement.

Call on the protective nature of Alder as your shield when you need fortification in your own battles. Its strength will empower and guard you. Your life experiences will make you stronger and others, in turn, will prosper where you flourish. Take comfort in the fact that hardship which forces others out, allows you to grow into your strength and fulfil your potential.

As you plunge forward, remember to attain a sense of balance. You must allow yourself the grace to grow as well as break new ground. The roots of the Alder take time to strengthen. Set forward towards your goals with confidence, but be sensitive to when it is time to rest and prioritise your stability.


See Whispers From The Woods oracle deck and companion book for more information on the meaning.

This wheel thrown mug is hand decorated with layers of different glazes and liquid gold and takes many weeks to create.   

Found in a place with magic in the air, where misty mornings gather dew on mossy rocks and sunlight forms dappled shadows under the trees. The animals in this wood hear the whispering of the ancients as their lives intertwine through the passing seasons.
