Milk and Butter, Card 4

I am doing a spread ispired by a story about Saint Brigid.

Once Brigid was sent to help the dairymaids with milking of the cows. The milk would be made into butter for the household. Brigid milked her cows and gave all the milk away to the poor people living in the neighborhood. When the maids began churning the butter, Brigid did not have any milk to give them. She prayed for abundance. And what happened? The butter increased to twice as they had expected! Brigid took the extra butter, and gave it to the poor, just as she had done with the milk.

1. What do I produce, do, make, or earn (money) to nurture myself and my family (houshold)?
2. Who are the poor and needy in my neighborhood whom I care about? These could be real people, it could be aspects or attitudes in myself or in others.
3.What is it that I give away from what I produce or receive (1) to the poor and needy (2)?
4. The household. This can be aspects in me.
5. My prayer for abundance
6. The result 


I changed the spread. Today I have drawn an extra card for the other aspects of me: ‘the household’ in the story. These are the people (aspects in me) who do not get so much attention as the poor part. The card I pulled is the Hermit from the Victorian Romantic Tarot. The Hermit is depicted as Father Time with an hourglass and a scythe. 

The Hermit seeks profound answers. The card differs from the card pulled for the poor aspect in me. That is a flashy woman. The number is the same though: nine.
