Today was busy. In order of events, early morning saw us going to the local farmers’ market, where we stocked up on decent fruit, vegetables, and organic meats (it only happens once a fortnight). Afterwards lots of gardening and sprucing up the home abode. I actually planted chamomile, lemon balm, borage and calendula. Above is my daily card I drew this morning, with the backdrop of a new vege garden extension done today by my partner, and Dorris and Tilda happily scratching around. It is only now I finally get to feel like the lady above – minus the glamour.
I guess the richness often associated with this card happens after some form of labour, often prolonged but worthwhile. As it happens, the Moon is in Virgo, a sign associated with practical work, and a rather busy schedule. I have noticed Virgos are often on the go, always tinkering at something, or at least thinking about it! It is also funny to see how some of this energy manifests on a day to day basis, as the Moon changes signs. It is not the first time I have experienced a Moon in Virgo bring about bouts of cleanliness, gardening, rearranging – the kind that goes on for a full day non-stop. Ah well. Enough for today I think. I intend to chill out with a glass of red wine, dinner, and a movie. Right after I do some sewing and complete a funding application for the local community garden 😉
Many blessings to you all,
