HOPE: Hold on to Hope. When things feel “hope-less”, change your outlook to feeling “hope-full”. Trust in the magical flow of life and love.
This mermaid can’t see the sun shining behind her through the clouds or the vibrant rainbow. She’s totally absorbed by her own inner world. All she needs to do is to look behind her and she’ll see the symbols of hope all around. Can you relate to her situation at this time?
While it’s important to acknowledge any pain and perhaps fear of the future, combined with the feeling that hope is lost, it’s equally important not to harbor these feelings for too long. Release them, knowing in your heart that hope can and will return again.
Although it might feel that way, you’re not at the mercy of your feelings and external circumstances. Each and every situation can be turned around, so that you can recognize and nurture feelings of hope. Simply looking at things from another perspective can literally shine a new light on your life and bring hope to the forefront once again.
Try meditating on your blessings and the positive things in your life. Make this a daily habit and you’ll soon change your heart and mindset to a hopeful one. If you find yourself thinking “hope-less” thoughts, imagine them turning into clouds and visualize them floating out of your mind. In your mind’s eye, see a beautiful, vibrant rainbow filled with hope beaming into your heart, filling it with vivid colors.
The sun is shining and hope is present. You just need to open your heart to the possibilities and miracles that a renewed sense of hope can bring.

TRUST: Trust in life. Nothing happens by chance and the universe is guiding you towards your destiny. Have faith and trust.
This mermaid says everything is working out perfectly and for the highest good of all, even if it doesn’t feel that way right now. It’s important to put your trust in life and know that all is well. Sometimes we can feel like a feather in the wind, blown this way and that, feeling out of control. Yet the truth is we’re never truly in control. Allow your heart and inner wisdom to guide you through your situation, knowing that your sun will rise and shine once again.
When our rational mind becomes dominant and our need to control takes over, life can be challenging. Yet within our mind we also have the power to turn things around and surrender to our destiny as it unfolds even if this feels uncomfortable at times. Know that your journey is unfolding exactly as it should and there’s nothing to concern yourself about.
Life is creative and full of twists and turns. It’s all a part of the grand, harmonious symphony of existence, but it’s okay to sing out of tune sometimes! Trust that life is metaphorically helping you to compose a brand-new song.
However you interpret this card’s meaning, the core message will keep coming back to trust! The place where you now find yourself is an indication that your destiny is unfolding. It’s a time of re-birth into the new and unknown, which can be frightening, even though there’s nothing to fear. Go within and know all is well, as you trust in your life’s process.
