Scorpio ruled by Saturn in the 8th house
Self-knowledge, self-mastery, control.
I've been struggling with an issue since last February, a problem that for the first time in my life put me in such a raving blind rage I could have killed someone, turned around and then done it again it would have felt so good. This week I've finally arrived at a point I can lay down the soul staining anger and walk away from it.
I'm reminded by the stunted tree in the foreground of self-knowledge denied
By the labyrinth of the circuitous path to self mastery
By the castle curtain of control. I cut the rage free yesterday. The river of life is long and wide, there are bigger better stones than this to carry.
"Just squeeze your rage up into a bitter little ball and release it at an appropriate time, like that day I hit the referee with the whiskey bottle." ~ Homer Simpson via Dan Castellaneta 1958-
When I used this deck here in 2008 I did something different since these cards are based on astrology rather than tarot. I'll write my posts based on sign/planet/house rather than image divination. An astrologer will fall down laughing, but I'm always happy to have brought a smile~
