4: The Dolphin: Innately Intelligent, Healer, Light, Blessings
The gifts of the Dolphin are beyond what our human minds can grasp. Dolphin personalities are often drawn to the healing arts, as they are sensitive to the subtle and enjoy working on the level of spirit. It’s easy for Dolphin types to underestimate the impact they make in the world. These creatures play such an important role in the wheel of Karma that’s coming into contact with a Dolphin type will change the entire course of your day...and thus your life. This card cans also indicate a profound blessing is on the way. When in balance: active healer, strong spiritual practice. When out of balance: underestimates own power. To bring into balance: like-minded spirits
9: The Stingray: Developing confidence, sense of self, or "spine"
The stingray card represents a pivotal point in personal growth. The moment has come when the stingray must decide between the old (easy, comfortable, and familiar) and the new (challenging, uncomfortable, and unfamiliar). Pressure from family and friends makes the decision even more complicated. No matter what choice is made now, it's inevitable that this dilemma will surface again and again, as the force of dharma growing within the stingray is too strong to ignore. When in balance: eager, wants to grow. When out of balance blames others, quits. To bring into balance: move through the discomfort.
7: The Lamb: Peaceful, Prophetic, Patient
The lamb is the bearer of an important message. Its content can only be heard when a deep level of quiet has been established. Lamb energy is the honest guidance you hear from an old friend, a young child, or sometimes a surprising stranger. Though the Lamb's message may channel through another person, the wisdom resonates within you. It will repeat and reverberate until you listen. Approach this gentle creature with utmost patient and reverence. Truth is a gift. Sit still, listen, receive.
