Prasādhana – arranging
«Then, in a beautiful forest grove scented with fragrant flowers and pleasant with humming bees, on an excellent bed made of new soft leaves and flowers, served by boys expert in combing and decorating His hair, singing, massaging His body of a dear friend named Shrīdāmā, He slept» (Brihad Bhagavatamrita, 2.7.68-69).
Prasādhana is organization, but it is also arranging, putting in order, arranging to make something beautiful, clean, then decorate, adorn. In short, it gives the idea of preparing, organizing for something pleasant.
Are you ready for Halloween, Gemini? In this October you will experience a progression of positivity, the peak of which will arrive on the last three days of the month. Just be careful not to get caught up in excessive indulgence. Before sleeping as “He” (Krishna) does, if I were you I would prepare myself. For example, you can organize yourself by informing and studying throughout the month on how to make the most of those three days. Without too many expectations of course, but enjoying the very fact of designing and learning something new with the opportunity.
