I am a teacher, and like many teachers, I am a very busy person.  Between the two community colleges I teach at, I have a full time load, I have writing projects that I'm in the middle of, I have my part of the housework in the house I live in to take care of, I've got my tarot reading and other spiritual practices that I'm trying to make a part of my life, and I've got a romantic relationship and a whole load of friendships that need to be kept up.  Because of all of this, I often smile when I see pagan writers talking about October as the time when things "slow down" and the land rests after harvest.  That may be true in agricultural settings, but for me, October and November are my busiest months of the fall semester.  My classes are in full swing, papers are being turned in left and right, November is National Novel Writing Month, and at least three or four people in our group of friends have birthdays, including my partner.  A lot of times, by this point in the semester, I feel like I'm in the middle of a hurricane of grading, parties, and class preparation, and I have no idea how I'm going to be able to handle all of it and keep what's left of my sanity.

And so, for times like these, I came up with my "Eye of the Storm" spread.
