Oak Tree Symbolism
Acorns are a symbol of fertility, fruition, and the manifestation of creativity. Because it can take up to two years for an acorn to reach maturity, they are a sign that the fruit of your efforts in the same time period are about to come to fruition.
If you find yourself noticing more oak trees, you may need to recognize your own strength and endurance. The energy is there to support you as you grown with new confidence. Be aware of the new spirit energy that comes to you during such times.
