Your world may feel like it’s been turned upside down, or you may feel stuck. Find your center, and don’t be afraid. Stillness and receptivity are called for. By not forcing things, but waiting, you may receive gifts of enlightenment and experience divine, unconditional love.
Shadow side: The ego refuses to surrender, and chooses instead to be mired in an unwinnable situation. If patience is called for, be sure to take as much time as necessary. Haste or aggressiveness may undermine the balance or peace.

Salmon are sacred in most shamanic systems for many reasons, but their ability to swim upstream to their birthplace and spawn is one of the most remarkable. This journey leaves the salmon exhausted and most die in the attempt. Representing, therefore, self-sacrifice and wisdom, salmon were said to swim in pools overhung by hazel trees and to eat the nuts falling off in autumn.
This card denotes someone whose life serves a greater purpose, someone with perseverance, determination, self-sacrificing and wise. Could have a tendency to martyrdom – to give away too much of one self.
