III. OPTIMO
Mother wolf watches; Receiving, reminding, defending.

Mercenarium Function:
When you activate the Optimo hymn, you may select any cards that are within 2 spaces of your house (your house is included here) and rearrange them within that area. Cards that you rearrange in this way must remain in the same orientation as they were before activating Optimo.

The Fool and The Fox can be moved with this hymn so long as the number on their relevant die remains the same after the movement as before. Likewise, a card that has IV. Seasons or XII. Druid attached can be moved, so long as they remain in the same orientation after the movement as before.

Dragonfruit Meaning:
Genesis / Hearth, Innocence, Protection / Longing
Optimo represents the beginnings of creation, and the protective force that helps a seed grow strong. It symbolizes something new and innocent that, without a helpful guardian, may wither and spoil.

Its core meaning (Genesis) alludes to the creation of the new and the manifestation of higher forms and patterns on the material realm; the process of turning possibility into reality. Its secondary themes (Hearth, Innocence, Protection) suggest that to bring new creations into the world we must foster and protect them with warmth and space, so they can become powerful. Its alteration (Longing) suggests that without the hearth, we are incomplete, and our energy will never be as effective if we do not feel safe to express it.

3s are GENESES: new forms and shapes of energy (children, ideas, organizations, goals) that require our conscious protection or cultivation to prosper.

LYRICS:
Is it all for the fall?

So they say, 'it'll pass,'
that everything you do, well,
they saw it all before.
But you see through the veil,
something sounds so good;
the same old soul rises;
Rises again.

I might've let it come to this;
I'm singing the same set of runes.
You see love to be love,
to realize that all, only
all you had to do was lose.

So what's the nemesis?
Is it the real thing, or dreams?
Is it even what it seems?
Am I alone? Are you as well?
As far as I can tell,
It's optimal,
It's optimal.

You see love to be love,
to realize that all, only
all you had to do was lose.
