The sugar cane grows tall and sweet. Like children, we laugh as we eat its sweetness and enjoy its bounty. All is in balance, life triumphs over death, the flowers are pollinated, and the home is peaceful.

Ben days are good days for giving thanks, caring for the home and for children. Ask for protection and peace, especially for your home and children. Ben days are for renewal, stability and strength.

People born on ben days are reliable, strong, professional and nourishing. Natural leaders, they believe that any job worth doing is worth doing to the best of your ability. Ben people love to learn and are wonderful parents. Ben represents the vitality of life itself, and ben people will help the world around them flourish.

Meditation: I am like the reed, I grow tall and strong. Life force flows through me and sustains my home, my family and my spirit. May my spirit sweeten the lives of those around me, may we all feel safe and stable.
