❤ Divination/Fortune meaning:
There can be two sides to anything, two stories to be told, the moon and the sun. Things tend to work in pairs, and the polarity can be beautiful. You need to make sure that you are balancing the dark with the light, and taking the road in between. Without balance, there isn't any room to growth, too much darkness and you will be consumed, too much light can burn. Try your best not to put too much weight on either side, and walk the middle road so you can understand yourself and those around you more clearly.
