It is a time of happiness, success, favorable issue, and abundance. Why are the maidens rejoicing? Perhaps they have received good news about a project, a promotion, recovering from illness, an engagement, a wedding, or the birth of a child. Their creative juices are flowing. The harvest has been abundant and they know how to have a good time.
