The Fish is the card of wealth and prosperity and is almost always welcome in a spread. It’s all about money, assets, property, and worldly possessions. It also indicates sources of income, like employment, business, and other revenue-generating projects. It often involves buying, selling, trading, and investing. It also indicates shopping and spending money. By itself, it tells of excellent financial health, but can point to financial trouble when accompanied by negative cards. It refers to aspirations to wealth, and usually those beyond a salary. It has an independent and entrepreneurial spirit and so alludes to independence and empowerment.

Financial independence is typically its goal so it encourages us to start acting on our ambitions.

But this doesn’t imply passivity in any way, instead, the Fish urges us to be active about our financial disciplines and goals, and get moving toward achieving them.
