- Divinatory meaning: After a burst of fruitful endeavoring, it’s necessary to take a step back and see what we’ve accomplished so far. Our girl here seems pleased with her pumpkin harvest. And why shouldn’t she be? It takes a lot of work to get to the place where she can pose so cutely with her yield. It takes careful planning, preparation, tending, and timing. But she didn’t just set out to grow seven gourds. One day, they will multiply. They will provide not just for her, but for her daughters, and their daughters after, for as long as someone is there to work the land.
Zoom in behind our intrepid little farmer and notice the small house at the tip top of the green hills and rows. It’s a dream in the distance, but still held firmly in her mind as an emblem of future success. Her imaginings are bold and wild and varied. All the possibilities of her future surround her. This is where, as the reader, you may find yourself.

 

You’ve done some work toward a goal, but there is so much more to be done. Sometimes, wrapped up in a project, or in pursuit of a particular aim, it can be discouraging to look at how far we’ve come vs. how far we have yet to go. It’s easy to let this kernel of doubt grow quick like a weed, and stop us from continuing. The solution? Don’t let it. Pruning is important too, remember. Are you picking all these gardening metaphors I’m putting down?
We must embrace the attitude of our own wee pumpkin princess. She understands the balance to be struck between hard work and manifestation. Hold the vision in your mind, and put one foot in front of the other. One day, your little seeds, your tilled rows and your watered beds will grow, and what a glory it will be to stand in the midst of that garden, which took root in your soul before it ever met the light. Simply put: celebrate your seedling wins and get back to work on the grander garden of your highest vision.

 

- Our card: When we found this image of a young girl, plaintively but proudly surveying her yield of exactly seven pumpkins, I was thrilled. It’s almost too perfect for this card. Take a look at the corresponding card in the Waite-Coleman-Smith deck and you’ll see why I was so excited. The visions surrounding her of all the neat rows, gardens, fences and home she will build reach nearly up to the gold circle at the top of the piece, giving the reader the impression that we’re catching her in the act of imagining.
