So, I have several planets in Libra including my Moon and Mars, two important inner planets. These are two planets that definitely influence decision making, at least peripherally. The moon is about the subconscious, unconscious, and inner feelings and Mars is all about your impetus, your passion (aggression and rage, also), and your energy to get up and go, to do something, anything! So as you might imagine, with these two planets so ill-placed, I tend to think and over-think everything. I decide and then I decide again which negates my having decided! Such has been the song and dance surrounding my “decision” to get one or more spiritually related tattoos.
I have a number of ideas floating around in my head, many of them Norse/Germanic themed. Right now, I am thinking of inking all 24 Futhark runes, either on my back or on my left arm. A few other possible tattoos include torches and/or a skeleton key for Hekate or a stylized tribal Barn Owl – my fylgja/soul-fetch. I have also been intensely debating whether or not to get a Valknut. Here Odin sounds a little like Hekate in that he insists that I make the choice; he’s not demanding anything. And, yes, I am fully aware of what a Valknut tattoo would mean. That is why I am still debating it. You have to understand the inner debate is not about my devotion to Odin, it’s about my Libraness, hence the lament. The bigger the decision, the bigger the debate, the less I ink, the more I think, and the more annoyed I become. Good gods, it’s a vicious cycle!
I am completely open to sage advice from those who currently have devotional tattoos. Your wisdom is welcomed here!
