It is also anti-inflammatory and contains antioxidants.” http://www.healthdiaries.com/eatthis/8-health-benefits-of-kelp.html

My Interpretation: This is a time of gaining new perspectives, and of letting go of old ideas. This may also be a time of sacrifices or suspended activity. There may be someone close to you who is untrustworthy.
