Happy Scorpio wishes!

Occult symbolism, once you start to look for it, can seem to pervade the world around you kind of relentlessly, but also with startling accuracy.  For example, right now, as we speak (or…as I write this, anyway…), the Sun above us prepares to move into my own personal Sun Sign of Scorpio….

Scorpio!!  I do <3 my own Sun Sign...

The Tarot card of the Major Arcana that most people associate with Scorpio is…Death.

Now, as it happens, I’m about to head out to the Department of Motor Vehicles to renew my driver’s license.  Renewal, as a concept, is indeed very Scorpionic.  This particular renewal affects my ability to use my car, though, which strikes me as also having a lot to do — at least in rather literal terms —  with The Chariot card…

Then again, sitting around in the waiting area of the DMV does generally feel like a form of slow death, so…maybe the Death card is the one to characterize what awaits me there, after all!  Anyway, just a quick reminder that while our symbols do surely reflect our lives…our lives also reflect our symbols…  Happy Wednesday to you, and Happy Scorpio…off to the DMV with me!  Wish me luck…
