"Now hear the words of Aradia: "Know that every action brings forth another and that these actions are linked together through their natures. Therefore, whatsoever you send forth, so shall you receive. A farmer can harvest for himself no more than he plants. Therefore let us consider what is good in our lives and what is full. Let us also consider that is bad and what is empty. And let us meditate upon the reasons for all of these things."
Taken from the Cornucopia Ritual in "Hereditary Witchcraft" by Raven Grimassi

Lots of folks think of Cornucopia as a celebration of aubundance, a harvest festival.
And there is that aspect to the holiday.
But there is more to it than that.

Now is the time to take stock of your life and determine
what is good and to take the time to be thankful for the blessings and abundance in your life
what is bad and empty or not so good and think about why this is and meditate on what you should do about it.

Anyone who gardens will understand the need to review what plants are "working" in the garden and what plants are not.
Sometimes a plant doesn't work because it doesn't grow well in the location. Maybe all it needs is to be moved to a new spot.
Sometimes a plant doesn't work in the garden because it grows too well and begins to take over and leaves no room for others.
Sometimes a plant is just not hardy in the enivornment and needs to be removed.

As Streghe this is the time of year we assess our lives and take time to make the decisions and to enlist the Gods as necessary to make changes.
