This post is a reflection of yesterday’s draw with the Tea Leaf Oracle. After basking in some glorious winter sunshine, the rains arrived and for about five days now it’s been raining. This is rather unusual for this region, where winters are basically dry throughout. Yesterday morning I dashed into the garden to take pictures of my daily draw, in between the mists and fog, during a brief spell when the rains stopped.
Everything was covered in raindrops, and it all looked magical and beautiful.
The Lily card reads “Spiritual love“. The accompanying book mentions “A beautiful white lily fills the querent’s heart and mind with spiritual love, divine and pure. Now is the time for you to share this love with your fellow man.” This card is a good reminder to be open and caring with those you are around. Even when you disagree with their views on life, tastes and so on. Literally, it could also be above sharing love with your partner.
I photographed the beetle against the seed head of the dill herb, laden with raindrops. Actually the dill flowers themselves bring good fortune: they attract predator wasps that clean out all the caterpillars off vegetables, taking them to their nest to feed emerging wasps. I had no idea of this until I saw a couple of large wasps hovering around stinging the caterpillars off my vegetable leafs.
I am waiting until the seeds develop so I can harvest them and plant more dill. Sometimes I just sit and watch the garden. Plants grow out of what seems like nothing, the smallest seed growing up tall, flowering, and withering.
Finally, yesterday evening we got together with friends for some food and wine and laughter. After a full working week, it was just what the doctor ordered. I have a three day weekend which will be packed with tarot and astrology 🙂
