When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder’s in the shock.
-James Whitcomb Riley (1849-1916)

Originally, she was believed to be associated with gardens and fruitfulness, but later took on all the aspects of Aphrodite from the Greek traditions.

Where do you now experience abundance in your life?

In a good laugh with a friend? The more you acknowledge abundance in your spirit, the richer your life will become.
“Not what we have but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.”
— John Petit-Senn

“The study of books is a languishing and feeble activity that gives no heat, whereas discussion teaches and exercises us at the same time.”
Conversation is active. It’s lively, it stretches our minds and imaginations! We are on this planet to learn from one another, and we do that by talking to each other, by conversing with each other! What good is reading books by the great philosophers, if you keep all this newfound wisdom and insight to yourself? It is meant to be shared, and discussed, and passed around the table for others to partake and add to the mix.
Daily Tarot: The Fool
You may have the best of intentions today but it won’t be easy to stick to any of them. There’s a lot of randomness in the air and you won’t have very much control over anything. Don’t let this lull you into becoming thoughtless or not caring about what you’re doing. Do what you can and save some energy for tomorrow when things might be smoother.
