Cancer 17-18 A Hen Scratching For Her Chicks
P Widling @ freeimages.com
I have Pallas on this degree. Pallas is a survivor, a warrior and peaceful general. She is about ideas and creativity. Chickens will nurture their young and then suddenly turn their back on them, to teach them independence. I feel that Pallas on this degree is a little of a double whammy, wherein both the themes of this symbol and of Pallas indicate a "mother" that is a teacher rather than a nurturer, and the lesson on this degree is about nurturing yourself.
Of course I also see the "first" part of this symbol as a hen nurturing and keeping the chicks near her. Maybe this is why I am such a helicopter parent (and why, at the back of my mind, I am so ready to help my chicks fly the coop!)
Does any part of the symbol resonate with you?
