Vine corresponds to the Ogham letter–muhn– heralding a time to come, of harvest and completion. With the end of August and the coming of September, gather around you all your successes, compile, file, smile—–and march forward to newness, using the experiences you have gathered so far this year, Year of the Goat.
Grapes, vines, wine are associated with the Green Man; the fruits of the vine are integral to celebrations worldwide.
Vines, in feng shui, are useful planted in the southeast/south sectors of the garden–up a wooden pergola is perfect. The two best varieties are VITIS COIGNETTIAE…’the crimson glory’ and VITIS VINIFERA ‘purpurea’.
Pour a glass of wine/grape juice, place in the southeast/south of the home, surrounded by oak leaves, vine leaves, apples and oranges==to symbolise abundance coming in.
Raise a glass of the precious juice at sunset, smile and praise your achievements, as new doors get ready to open.
All good things……
