Come let’s enjoy our winecup today,
Nor pity the flowers fallen.”

Wise Woman Herbal Ezine: Got Ramps?
by Thea Summer Deer
Worthy of its own festival, ramps are a springtime rite celebrating a Southern Appalachian delicacy. Smelly as a ram in spring, ramps get their nickname from the Old English word “ramson” for wild garlic. They are also affectionately known as the spring onion, wild leek, and in French, ail sauvage and ail des bois, which translates as (no surprise!) wild garlic.

Inner Journey: IT’S OKAY TO DREAM!

Our deepest desires and dreams align with the essence of who we are. The more we align with that essence, the more our life holds meaning, purpose and fulfilment. Do you have a sense of your destiny?
“Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.”
— Dale E. Turner

A Note from the Universe
When you understand that your disappointment in another’s behavior or choices always stems from their immaturity, or yours, rather than their unkindness, or yours, it becomes much harder not to keep skipping through life, giddy with joy, smelling the flowers.
Moreover, when you understand that with enough maturity on your end you can always find peace in all your relationships, it becomes much harder not to run down the street kissing everyone you meet on both cheeks.
Kiss, kiss –

“Whatever the mind holds to and firmly believes in, forms a new pattern of thought within its creative mold, as whatever thought is held in the mind tends to take outward form in new creations.”
Who do you think you are? Depending on the tone of the person asking that question, you could choose to be insulted or intrigued. But really, do you know who you are? Are who you know yourself to be and who you think yourself to be the same person? We each create the lives we lead, and we’re doing this all the time with our thoughts and our actions. Think about it.

Daily Tarot: Strength
Act with boldness, but not too much, and make this an easy and productive day. If something challenging or unexpected arises at work or with family, be receptive and stand your ground. Don’t push back until you know what it is you’re up against. Then if needed, give as well as you get. You can do this tactfully.
