The Fern Moss card represents retention. Holding on to the critical and taking in the ephemeral are both qualities of retention, and one should consider that one may need to pay close attention to their surroundings, or give more weight to their studies as they observe this card in their reading. One may also want to look at that which they have retained, their knowledge, skill, and memory, and how it may aid them in relation to the subject of their reading. This phyla is full of a variety of species with different adaptations, but one that is common and important is the ability for moss to retain a tremendous amount of water, up to twenty times its weight, assisting in is survival and growth.
