Astrological Sign: Cancer/Aries ︱ Planet: Moon/Mars
A little boy runs away from his mother in anger, clenching his fists. His face is flushed red with anger, matching the color of his red dress. The broken toy lies on the ground, a result of the boy's tantrum. Dark storm clouds loom overhead, adding to the gloomy mood. The child creates such a commotion that it stirs the wind, causing his mother's dress and scarf to flutter wildly.
The meaning of the Defiance Symbolon card
1) As a single or first card︱ The problem
WHAT IS THE SUBJECT?
"Your soul aches" because a frustrated child is raging within you, pounding its fists deep within your belly. You see the world as "unfair" and it seems as if everyone is against you. Recognize that in this moment, you are a child, far from reason and the adult world. The emotions you feel are reminiscent of your childhood, brought on by triggered memories from the past. They seek to be heard, acknowledged, in other words, released.
2) As the next card︱Way through the problem
HOW TO DEAL WITH IT?
The anger that you have been suppressing for years or even decades is now seeking an outlet. Releasing it may be painful, but it's necessary for the release of pent-up emotions. Your energy will be able to flow freely again once you have found a way to express your anger in a healthy manner, whether it be through therapy or another form of self-expression. Ensure that your method of release does not harm anyone, including yourself.
3) as the last card︱Result
WHERE DOES IT LEAD?
Only by embracing the child within and giving it the space to express its repressed anger, can you hope to find peace within yourself. As with small children, your inner defiance, anger, and rage will eventually dissipate, leading to a deep sigh and a sweet sense of tiredness.
