Today's Tarot - 7 of Coins

It's getting to be that time of year.

Sure we are still thinking of warm weather, sun, fun, and Labor Day barbeque. At the same time farmers markets are overflowing with good things. The seeds that were planted in spring and allowed to grow over summer are coming to fruition...literally and figuratively. There is still some summer left, but harvest has begun.

The 7 of coins is often read as "reaping harvest". Many times this read in terms of "you reap what you sow"...cause and effect, chickens coming home to roost, that sort of connotation.

As with all the cards, there are other shades of meaning here too.

Today there is a feeling of "of course" or "naturally" there is a harvest. It is the way of Nature, the way things work. The world provides for us, naturally, effortlessly. So what is our role in the harvest?

First is to care for it. To preserve the good things that come. To take care of the environment that provides the harvest so generously. Second, perhaps as important, is to be grateful. It is no accident that the Thanksgiving holiday comes at the end of the harvest.

Being grateful for a beautiful day in the 'Burgh and wishing you a day of abundance & appreciation too.
