For the first time in my life, I find myself looking forward to the chill of fall. I’ve been eyeing my sweaters and leggings desperately for the last three weeks, and my time has finally come! One could speculate on whether that has to do with my newfound appreciation for the cycles of life and death, or with me finally putting enough meat on my bones to keep myself decently warm, but the end result is the same.
My card for September was Permanence, and I thought I knew what it meant. However, this month has been so busy that I’d completely forgotten about it. Even my paganism has tapered off considerably despite the amount of pagan work I’ve been doing. It’s possible that some event happened this month that I will look back and be able to pinpoint as a turning point in my future, or perhaps one of my many writing ideas or urges will finally gain some traction.
October’s card is Gift. October’s weather certainly feels like a gift. My birthday gift from my husband should be arriving sometime in October, my next clothing box will be arriving, as will multiple Kickstarters, I think. I’ve begun several promising friendships this month that may bear fruit as early as next month, possibly.
Either way, it’s promising and I look forward to what October has to offer.
