Capricorn 29. At dusk, a woman in a garden picking lettuce.

Every year the alchemist Tiresa Miranu plants behind her cottage a garden of lettuce.  It is a special kind of lettuce which is highly receptive to the imprint of thoughts.

Tiresa carefully speaks to each plant as it grows, asking each one to be imbued with a different and specific potency.  Some carry the power, for instance, to allay fears, or to foster happiness, or focus the mind, or to melt away sadness, or a host of other properties and powers.

Those in need seek Tiresa out in the woods where she lives and, telling her their problems are given a simple salad to consume, a salad made from the specific plant or plants which fulfills their need.

In this way each seeker departs, having received her medicine, which is said to be both powerful and enduring.
