Baby it's cold outside!
In the Wizards Tarot, the image speaks to me of both these possibilities. On the one hand, the Mandrake Academy student pictured looks rather grumpy. He sits on a throne, looking off to the right - hoping for better things in the future? Feeling a sense of entitlement - I'm magical and rich, I should get what I want? On the other hand, he is in a cold, snowy landscape without a coat (yikes, I sound like such a mother). In such circumstances, he may need to gather what he can to protect and sustain himself through the times of cold and lack. A coin won't keep you warm, but it'll buy you a coat and a bowl of hot soup.
In terms of gratitudes:
I am grateful for the coming of spring.
I am glad to feel safe and warm.
