Though the Sow is usually a sign of generosity and nourishment, reversed it can symbolize greed and ignorance. The winter is a perfect time to look at the little things that make the world beautiful and not overlook them. There is beauty in imperfection. Ignorance of such things makes one ugly. Make a change to rid yourself of that ugliness, and bring forth the beauty of your wisdom. Try to judge all living things on their merits, flora and fauna alike.
I leave you with this old Gaelic saying, “When you thought you were riding the sow’s back, you were standing beside her in mud.”
Until next season.
