Celebrate Abundance

Images The start of November has me thinking about the celebrations ahead; the gathering of loved ones to express thanks for the bounty of blessings in our lives. 

 

When I think about 'abundance' the tarot card that comes to mind first is the Three of Cups, with its joyful dancers with glasses raised. Near their feet, we see a spray of vegetation with pumpkins and grape vines. 

 In her book Introduction to Tarot Susan Levitt points out that "The pumpkin in the foreground indicates a spiritual harvest, or that emotions will be jubilant come autumn."

A similar interpretation is given Hajo Banzhaf's book Tarot for Everyone, "The Three of Cups indicates that a matter will develop favorably. It depicts a harvest festival and means that something reached a good end, the harvest was brought in and we can be thankful, happy, and satisfied with it."  

Of course, in the Crowley Thoth deck, the Three of Cups bears the key word ABUNDANCE. 

In the coming weeks, I look forward to having you gather here to share your stories of celebration. What are you most grateful for? How do you express it? 

Blessings to all!

    I am grateful for the simple things. A roof over my head, clothing on my back, food in the pantry. I have my health, spirit and he opportunity to do what I love, read and share Tarot. Everyday, I celebrate life, by thanking the powers that be for the shinning light in Astrology and Tarot for illuminating my path.
    ‘The day begins by thy grace, 0 Queen and Mother of both gods and men, and I am both strengthened and comforted by my knowledge of thee. Thy sacred law of life is the guiding star of my existence. Make holy, sanctified, and thrice blessed all which I do, think, and attempt during this coming day. Blessed be, 0 Supreme Goddess, in all thy many names and manifold attributes!’ -Sybil Leek (something else I have to be grateful for:-))
