He awa wai kōpua wahine, taka ana te āhuru:
In the depth of a woman, there is comfort.

This card is one to show your appreciation for your mother/mother figure/girlfriend/wife. In them you find comfort, peace, and aroha.

The saying comes from the full whakataukī “He awa wai kōpua he taniwha kei roto, e mate; he awa wai kōpua wahine, taka ana te āhuru.”
In a river’s depths lie taniwha, death, but in the depth of a woman, there is comfort. The contrast here is between danger and peace where the taniwha is symbolic of danger and a woman is symbolic of peace and well-being.
