Mabon Floral Abundance

A prelude

Honestly: Today I felt like I finally turned the corner that was supposed to come ten days ago. It may or may not be true that it has something to do with the autumnal equinox, when we celebrate harvesting what we’ve sown.

I had some wonderful conversations in real life and messaging today. All were with people I’ve listened to and supported in the past, but now they are supporting me. That’s a great harvest of kindness!

Still, I drew a tarot card today, and it was the same one I’ve been doodling lately: the three of swords.

In this Druid deck, the swords rest on a rock heart, and appear to have pierced a tree at its weakest point, the heart wood. Ow.

What I see here is that the swords have been removed, so healing can begin, even if they leave a scar. Leave it to me to find hope in this card.

Floral, did you say?

Mostly tonight I just wanted to share that it’s the trifecta year once again when many of my grocery store orchids bloom at the same time.

It’s a jungle!

This year, there are five, though I showed the tiny one already. I don’t think any of these are new from last year, but I’ll just celebrate them.

The pink one is the same kind as my little one. It lasts a long time.

My favorite is the solid white one. It always reminds me of a nun’s habit.

The purple and white one was dyed blue when someone gave it to me. I knew it was really beautiful in its natural state! It’s bloomed three times like this, now.

And last, I’ll leave you with the one that represents how I aim to feel as the more positive events and people come charging into my life. It’s brazen, colorful and bright!

Bring the positive and fun stuff on! Let these cheerful interlopers blossom forth and help me, my family, and our crazy little business ventures enjoy peace and prosperity. It’s a promising premise.
