DIVE DEEP: Dive deeply into your current situation to help reveal any hidden factors at play. Relax to feel comfortable and acclimatize to this new environment.
Mermaids are very much at home in the watery world of emotions. Their environment is fluid, just like our emotions, always flowing and forever changing. As you dive into the depths of yourself, experience the magic and wonder of your beautiful inner world. Embrace this magical and vast aspect of yourself and know that you’re timeless and limitless in the depths of your being. The journey within can go as deep as you wish and can be a powerfully transformational experience.
You may like to explore the sacred practice of shamanism, which involves diving deep into our shadow sides so we can become healed on deeper levels. Diving deep can reveal many inner mysteries. Learn to observe them with a clear perspective and try to do this without attachment to anything that’s discovered. Allow revelations to happen naturally. One way to do this is to watch any inner discoveries as if you’re watching a TV screen, but without any emotional attachments to what you’re viewing.
Another meaning of this card is that you or someone else could be staying on the surface of a situation when it would be preferable to dive deep and explore the deeper meaning of what’s really going on. It can take courage to do this, as we often fear the unknown, but usually the discovery isn’t as bad as we think, and often it can bring joy and freedom, sometimes from years of avoidance.
This card’s meaning could be literal — it could be telling you it’s time to go for a swim and /or learn to dive!

DREAMING: Pay attention to your dreams. Keep a notepad and pen by your bed so you can write down your dreams when you wake up.
This daydreamer is saying there’s a strong message in your dreams right now. Writing down your dreams can also help you to decipher any hidden meanings. Both night dreams and daydreams can manifest into reality when you combine them with practical action.
Maybe you’re not remembering your dreams, or not dreaming at all due to disturbed sleep patterns. If this is the case, avoid caffeinated drinks three hours before going to bed, and instead have calming drinks like chamomile tea. Try putting lavender bags under your pillow to aid deep sleep or place essential oils in a diffuser in your bedroom to help you drift off. Or listen to guided meditations or relaxation music, which can aid deep, peaceful sleep and encourage dreams to flow.
Were you always daydreaming at school? Many creative people daydream, as this is where the seeds of their dreams start to sprout and grow in this reality. But if you find yourself daydreaming too frequently, make sure you’re eating properly and getting enough sleep.
Dreaming and daydreaming can both be a form of escapism. Maybe there are things going on in your life that you wish to avoid, things that are too painful. Releasing your fears through dreaming is just one of the ways your body can protect you in these circumstances. If your dreams are causing you concern, remember they are a subconscious way of releasing worries. You could also avoid ‘trigger’ foods like cheese, before bedtime.
