Are you looking for your "special someone?" Spiritual & Astrological Readings.
Before we get into the "Gardening Basket" article below, hey and hurrah, it's gardening season again! This year, as every year, start your seeds or plant your veggies under the different phases of the moon. The reason for this is because the plants are reaching for the light of the moon in different ways.
Root vegetables or veggies grown under the soil, such as, beets, carrots, and potatoes, should be started or planted when the moon is new or April 20 or May 19, 2023. And up-top vegetables or veggies grown above the soil, such as, cabbage, pumpkins, and tomatoes, should be started or planted when the moon is full or April 6 or May 5, 2023. You'll be glad you did!
Now, back to the "Gardening Basket" article. Instead of giving to those you love the traditional Easter Basket filled with colored eggs and candy, announce your affection for them as well as the coming of spring with a Gardening Basket!
Happy Springtime! Happy Easter! Miss Dee.

P.S. Mercury is Retrograde from April 21 through May 15, 2023.
Just to refresh your memory, a Mercury Retrograde cycle is when the planet Mercury, the ruler of communication, appears to move backwards in its orbit. No, it doesn't shift into reverse, it only appears to move backwards or slow down because one of the other planets passes by Mercury.
During a Retrograde cycle, mankind has communication problems: getting his/her point across, speaking proficiently, and listening attentively. This cycle also creates frustration, misplacing items, misunderstandings, nervousness, schedule changes, and short tempers. The benefits derived from the Mercury Retrograde cycle
The benefits derived from the Mercury Retrograde cycle are four-fold: we become more introverted as we search our minds for sabotaging habits and thoughts to release, we rethink our experiences and come upon the truth of them thereby defeating anxiety, fear or a misconception, we review our goals and our path to achieving them, and we often finish a project.
Caution: because misunderstandings are so rampant during this 3 to 4 week period, and because we change our mind about some of our decisions, it is best to avoid shopping for gifts, making major purchases, signing contracts or making commitments during a Mercury Retrograde cycle.
Additional information about each of the sun signs, their health issues, the moon's influence, the Mercury Retrograde cycle, the gifts each sun sign prefers to receive, complimentary sun sign costumes, compatible sun signs, and the beneficial foods, herbs and vitamins for each sun sign may be found in the books, The Best of Miss Dee, and Health, Astrology and Spirituality, both by Miss Dee.
