How does your garden grow?

The Moon in Gemini coupled with a communicative number three day suggests that all modes of communication will be the theme for the day. Not only communication but the Twins encourage us to draw on the power of the mind. Today we have the potential to create our tapestry for the future. The canvas is bare and we can reach into our box of colours and allow our imagination to formulate the landscape of the future.

The power of the mind is highlighted today. Mercury is sated in his natal sign of Gemini. It is the eve of the new Moon and now is the best time to choose the seeds for the coming months.

I remember a few short weeks ago when my husband and I were planting bulbs. I brought a mass of differed dried up and very unattractive blobs. I had this vision of how one section of the garden would look and all I had to go on with the tiny pictures on the labels. We sat together and mapped out a concept of the garden. We talked about the messages that we wanted the garden to convey; such as rays of colour coming out from the centre where Buddha presides. He sits in the centre of our garden and is surrounded by hundreds of smiling pansy faces. We wanted this happy picture to sprawl out into the rest of the garden.

We also wanted to plant bulbs that were comfortable in certain areas of the garden like daffodils under the deciduous maples. The planting took place at the perfect time of year and now as I gaze on to that landscape I can see the tiny green shoots bursting up through the earth. In spring my garden will be a mass of colour. It may not be the picture perfect vista created in my imagination but I am positive that I won’t be disappointed.

Today is akin to the garden bed and the dried up nuggetty bulbs I held in my hand a few weeks ago. Instead of bulbs in my hand, the seedlings are representative of flashes of insight and creativity a racing through my mind. These tiny pictures are based around my future demeanour, clothes, hair, shoes, wardrobe significant relationships, financial position, car, home and current and future projects. All of these strands of my tapestry will be woven into this canvas reflecting the interplay between ideas, imagination and creation.

How do I want to look and feel about my life? What can I control and what do I need to accept or even let go of? Will there be weeks in my garden? And how will they get there? I am positive that I wouldn’t plant them – now would I? One thing I am certain is that I envisage that this canvas will be healthy, vital, vibrant and enduring. Now it is up to you and your vision for the future. How does your garden grow?

Peace and Love,
