OVERVIEW

 

Traditionally, the Garden is associated with parks where lovers of old would court and meet as far away from the public eye as possible. As times have changed, the Garden evolved to mean public spaces and meetings in a broader sense while still maintaining an aspect of romance and intimacy in certain combinations. It covers places, meetings, gatherings, networking, socializing, events, and parties. It can also refer to the workplace and team meetings.

Through its association with greenery and nature, the Garden is also a physical and metaphorical place of peace, rest, quiet, and solitude. In certain combinations, it has further evolved to signify online social networking sites. It’s often positive and tends to add a social element to any matter.

IN THE PORTRAIT & GRAND TABLEAU

 

In the first or central card placement of the portrait layout, the Garden can indicate a place or meeting of importance. We might be at the center of attention and nearby cards can tell in what regard. It generally answers a query positively and implies success, but surrounding cards must be examined for their influence.

In the Tableau, the Garden near the significator indicates a happy and eventful social life, and possibly even popularity in social circles. It can also suggest good friendships or new ones. When far, it indicates superficial circles or friends who turn out to be two-faced, but this also depends on nearby cards.

ADVICE

 

The Garden invites us to either get out and socialize or to take time out to relax. It certainly suggests that we get out of the house and get some fresh air, whether with others or by ourselves. At work or with other activities, it advises us be productive and get things done. It can also suggest that we exhibit our work or ‘go public.’
