Card of the day: PELE – Goddess of Fire
Volcanoes. Passion. Anger. Be empowered by anger.
(Deck: “Goddess Inspiration Oracle” by Kris Waldherr, Llewellyn Worldwide, 2007)
Pele, goddess of fire among the Hawaiians, has the ability to create as well as to destroy. Known for her tempestuous temper and passionate love affairs, she can appear as a beautiful maiden or as an ugly hag with brown skin as coarse as lava. Whatever form Pele assumes, what stands out is the power of her anger.
We tend to immediately brand all anger as negative. However, righteous anger, the kind that arises in response to real social injustices and inequities, can be an exception. Also, if you are angry enough about an issue or situation that you are galvanized into positive action in order to change it, then that anger can be transformative.
Learn to vent your anger in healthy, productive ways but do not automatically dismiss it out of hand. Trace its roots of your anger and try to “analyze” the anger if it has merit. I know it may be difficult to be objective once eruptive feelings are already a-brewing, but your anger can still serve a constructive purpose. Primum non nocere (First do no harm.)
