Virgo

A cornucopia spills it's harvest bounty onto a table with the words "Celebrate your abundance this Fall!"

Fall Abundance

Tables decorated with a cornucopia spilled forth fruits and vegetables as the people showed their gratitude to Demeter for the gift of a bountiful harvest. While we no longer create our horn of plenty or cornucopia from a goat’s horn to honor Demeter, Americans still use her symbols to represent abundant harvests.
