Claustrophobia

Daily Pick: Royal Thai Tarot ~ Moon

"The Royal Thai Tarot has been created for fortune-telling by Sungkom Horharin. The authentic artwork (limited to the major and court cards) has been created by Thai artists and honors the art, culture, history and religion of Thailand." Kate Hill, Aeclectic Tarot

Para Rahu. Who  covers the Sun then spits it back out, explaining eclipses. Black food is offered to appease this god and ward off bad luck.

I'm reminded by Rahu, superstition/religion around the world is much like kindergarten. Where we learn about pecking order, worshiping the biggest kid, counting ourselves safe, right before we get creamed. Does faith really offer comfort? I prefer reality, it gives  me something to fight. The thought of hiding in a foxhole gives me claustrophobia, I'd rather moon the lot of them.

“The root of all superstition is that men observe when a thing hits, but not when it misses." ~ Francis Bacon, Sr.  1561-1626
