Gathering

Yesterday the squirrel in the four of pentacles was gathering nuts and today in the three of pentacles we have a community of gals that have gathered their flowers and herbs.

After my staring contest yesterday I realized the squirrel was hinting at gathering what I might need to sustain me through the coming winter months.  These gals also have gathered gifts from Mother Earth to work with. The darkest days of the year are ahead before the Wheel turns after the Winter Solstice and so I think I am being advised to gather what will sustain me.  The days are getting shorter and I have always been susceptible to seasonal depression with the waning daylight; so forewarned is forearmed.  I will stock up on Vitamin B 12, my Verilux light out for daylight simulation at my desk, brighter bulbs in some of my lamps, a stack of good books, and continue my time with the wonderful blogging community that has become near and dear to my heart.
And most of all continue my attitude of gratitude.  The Earth needs a good long winters rest to be able to give me a delightful return of Spring so I will refrain from complain.

  1. What a splendid idea Carolyn to stock up for the winter season. Because a lot of things aren't in the cards for me right now, reading is what a I love doing most of the time. Besides gratitude I will gather Patience, Acceptance and determination to get well again.
    Of course I share your love for our litlle blogging circle. How wonderful it would be if we could meet in on of our kitchens like that!

  2. Except for working for the nine attorneys I enjoyed ever job I had. But I HATED going to and coming home from work in the dark. I think it goes back to the one time the house was cold and dark when I got home from grade school. We'll hang together And always leave a light on for each other.

    1. What a lovely thought. A light on for each other. I will remember when I turn every light on in the house on those really dark days, that one of them was turned on by you for me.

  3. Love Sharyn's idea of leaving the light on for each other! Proactive sounds much better than reactive. :)
