|Today is one of the two dates that the Romans celebrated Vinalia-the dedication of libations to Jupiter. In honor of Vinalia, find a way to enjoy your favorite wine or fruit juice. Share with friends, and pour some on the ground as an offering to the deity of your choice. A toast can be a kind of spell-be aware of your intent and then drink to it. Here's one you can try, since drinking to good health is a popular toast:
Health, wealth, happiness,
May this drink be blessed-
Peace, love, good fortune's kiss,
May our lives be blessed.
This can be done to ask for a good harvest in the fall if you grow, or if you make your own wine or juice, why not start a batch today? Raise a glass and make a toast. As they say in Italian, salute!
