Medicinal Uses: “Damiana is a wild deciduous shrub found in the arid and semi-arid regions of South America, Mexico, United States and West Indies. It is believed that Mayan Indians used damiana to prevent giddiness, falling and loss of balance, and as an aphrodisiac. It has also been used during childbirth, and to treat colic, stop bed wetting and bring on suppressed menses. Today its leaves are used for flavouring in food and beverages, and infusions and other preparations are used for a variety of medicinal purposes. “ http://medicinalplants.us/damiana

My Interpretation: You may receive an important message soon. This may be an emotional time for you. You may become wrapped up in dreams or imaginings, remember to keep yourself grounded and balanced.

Thoughts/Points to Ponder: The Page of Cups is the Earthy part of Water. On the Tree of Life each page is in Malkuth which is ruled by the four elements.

The fish looks as if he is trying to get the man's attention, but the man does not even seem to notice the fish.
