"Bloody Knuckles"

Carpe Diem #167 (Scorpio)



Image Credit

This is my sign. I've never really believed in zodiac signs but Kristjaan's description made my jaw drop...entirely in retrospect of my life. I have a strong affinity to the painter of the above image. This one is called "Bloody Knuckles". She's a fighter/warrior. She fought against my traumatic childhood which I have mostly overcome. That Scorpio is attuned to personal awakening certainly goes with my healing, as does wearing a mask to hide the inner turmoil. No more masks but it was most of my life.

unknown childhood
clarity and awareness
blessing for healing

highly principled for justice
vengeance for evil
outwardly shy and withdrawn

no sting to speak of
feels sting of the past
finds solace in haiku
