Uncover hidden tea leaf meanings

It is rather common to see fish in your tea leaf reading.

Due to the fact that the fish lives in the water this symbol is associated with the spirit of emotions, subconscious, healing and purification. When the fish appears in your teacup it simply implies that you are having difficulty with independence and purpose. The fish seen in water indicates a person will prevent a goal from being achieved. To see more than one fish is a lucky omen. A fish can also be an omen of fertility.

A fish in ancient tea leaf readings represent change, health, deeper awareness, inventiveness, fertility, stretching the limit and luck.
