The river carries water from one place to another. It can reveal the flow of emotions and passions or a sense of what sustains your inspiration. Since it has a tendency to pick up the earth, stones and debris that it places upriver, it brings forward the idea of the things that you are doing in the present that create your future. The river can also be a symbol of learning to ‘let go’ and move with ‘current’ trends or changes. See Water.
