Mars On Scorpio 29: An Indian Woman Pleading To The Chief For The Lives Of Her Children
Issues to do with pleading the case of one’s self, or others, can come up, as can issues to do with youngsters. It is interesting to note that in Italy, as I write this, Australian Cardinal George Pell is before the Royal Commission Into Child Sexual Abuse. Pell is the third most powerful person in the Catholic Church.
This degree can be very much about pleading one’s case, appearing before the tribunal of society, court cases, custody cases and the like. It can represent healers that work to bring a healing to others.
The following is my full interpretation of this degree from my book The Sabian Oracle: 360 Degrees Of Wisdom –
Commentary: ‘An Indian Woman’ is ‘Pleading to the Chief For the Lives of Her Children’. Something that the children have done, or are suspected of doing, has led to the ‘Children’ needing the ‘Woman’ to stand up for them, state their case clearly and ask for mercy or leniency. It could be that the ‘Children’ are not really children, but are something merely seen as being useless, expendable or to be sacrificed for other causes.
Oracle: You may find a need to stand up for those in your care, whether it is your ‘Children’, your ideals, creative pursuits, or other people. Even if they might somehow draw or deserve rejection, punishment or judgment, there is a need for you to act as a go-between, or an advocate. It needs to be remembered, though, that being “deserving of punishment” is often a perception of society, and quite probably prejudice, and not always something that’s grounded in reality. On the other hand, you may need someone else to be an advocate or to translate your feelings or actions so that others may understand. The solution will probably best be found not so much in being defensive as in simply asking for leniency, or that attention be paid to the matter at hand. Apologies may need to be made. When people understand what is truly going on they often relax and this serves to take a lot of the emotional “charge” out of the proceedings. As the situation is brought more into the light, and people see what’s really happening, there is usually a lot of the pain, distrust and fear taken away. People will be more forgiving or accepting if they understand the full picture.
