TURN AWAY: Turn away from or turn your back on a situation that isn’t serving your highest good. Turning away can be an empowering thing to do.
This mermaid is showing you that turning away is the correct course of action, even if this is only a temporary measure. It can be a challenging action to take, as you may feel defeated on an egotistical level, yet, in your wisdom you know deep down it’s the right thing to do. So, hold your head up high and accept that you’ve done all you can do. Turn or swim away with your self-esteem intact.
Turning away can be a loving gesture when you know the people or situation you’re turning away from will flourish without your input or physical presence. You can still send healing thoughts to the people or situation, so that you feel better about changing course, and you’ll still be helping by sending blessings from a distance.
Sometimes we need to turn away from a situation to gain a better perspective on things. Don’t feel that you have to endure your present circumstances if they don’t feel right for you. Perhaps you’re finding something unacceptable, in which case it’s important to honor your own feelings.
Have you already turned away from a situation but are tempted to get involved again? If this resonates with you, think long and carefully before backtracking. Try to recall the reason you turned away in the first place. Time has a habit of blurring our memories, so take off those rose-colored glasses before making any major decisions in relation to this.

GO WITH THE FLOW: Let go and go with the flow! You’ll get where you need to be when you surrender and trust in the natural flow of life.
This mermaid wants you to know that life can be more fun when you go with the flow. She’s allowing herself to be carried along by the currents of the sea. She has total trust in the ocean to take her wherever her destiny may lead.
When we push against the flow, it can feel very tiring. This card tells us to simply surrender to the flow of life. It’s about trust – trusting in your destiny and knowing that everything happens at exactly the right time. So, try releasing any attachment to a particular outcome and allow life to take you in the right direction.
Going with the flow means you spend less energy forcing things to happen. When we fully trust in our destiny, we know on a deeper level that what is meant for us, won’t pass us by.
Is there a situation in your life in which things aren’t going as smoothly as you wish? If not yourself, then perhaps someone close to you is experiencing an uphill struggle, where every move they make has the opposite effect of what they wish to happen. If this rings true, then this card serves as a reminder, telling you to surrender to the flow of life and allow all the pieces to float perfectly into place, without any struggle or force.
Whatever your query, the answer is simply to go with the flow. This doesn’t mean you’re giving up or are defeated – rather that your lack of resistance will bring you a sense of freedom and completion.

MOVE FORWARD: Make a move now! The time for waiting is over and forward movement is required. Don’t let fear stop you.
This warrior-king of the sea strides boldly forward and asks you to do the same. He says this is the time to make a move, so follow him now.
Whatever it is that you’ve been thinking about doing, this card says to do it now. You might not feel ready, or you could be waiting for the perfect moment to take action. Well, that perfectly imperfect moment is now!
The time for inaction or procrastination is over. You know in your heart that the current circumstances can’t stay the same and bold action is required. It might not be a life-changing move, or there again, it could be. You’ll know what you need to do, so act with courage as you boldy move forward and trust in life to guide you.
The writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe said, ‘Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it; Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.’ So, take heed of these wise words and apply them to your own life now. An exciting time of activity lies ahead and will lift you out of your current scenario and into a whole new world.
You might be feeling very comfortable and not feel like moving anywhere, let alone forward. This card can also be saying move forward by moving your body – it could be as simple as getting some exercise. Moving your body, especially with dancing, brings forth energy to take the steps you need to take.
