The Tree of Life Roberta Orpwood Art

The Tree of Life Oracle

Oracle Deck, published by Hay House UK

Author: David Wells

Illustrator: Roberta Orpwood @soulbirdart

Unlock the ancient wisdom of the Tree of Life and understand the path ahead with this beautiful oracle from astrologer and Qabalah expert David Wells.

Drawing on the mystic tradition of Qabalah, The Tree of Life Oracle will help you to learn more about the nature of the universe and yourself, connecting you with your soul to fulfill your purpose.

The Tree of Life is central to Qabalah – a map of the universe and the psyche, the order of the creation of the cosmos, and a path to spiritual illumination, represented by 10 interconnected spheres.

The Tree is rich with symbolism, and these symbols – drawn from astrology, Tarot, and ancient alchemy – are reproduced throughout the cards within the beautiful paintings of Roberta Orpwood. This deck of 44 cards – comprising 11 Sephiroth, 22 Paths, and 11 Magical Forces – harnesses the power of Qabalah to change people’s lives. An accompanying guidebook explains the meaning behind the symbols and suggests cards layouts for readings and interpretation.


This mystical oracle deck is suitable for full or daily readings, as well as gently helping you to better understand the workings of the Qabalah, demystifying it and making it more accessible. The more you work with the cards, the more in tune you will be with the universe, coming to a greater understanding of the path ahead.

Publisher for ‘The Crystal Power Tarot’ – Testimonial

“I worked with Roberta on the illustrations for a crystal tarot deck by Jayne Wallace which I was managing editorially. Roberta gave meaning to the cards by following Jayne’s interpretations and combining these with her own creative vision and knowledge of the tarot, and the resulting artworks were stunning. She willingly made small adjustments according to our feedback so that both we (the publisher) and Jayne were happy with the end product. Throughout the project, communication was easy, with Roberta keeping us updated on her progress, working to often tight deadlines but always being realistic about what she could achieve in the time. She was a pleasure to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her as an artist and illustrator. I hope we work together again one day.”
