Goddess Tarot: 9 ~ Contemplation: Chang O
Chang O is the Chinese goddess of the moon. She is shown upon the moon, literally a world apart from others. She has her pet, a white hare. She is actually transparent- owing to her misguided attempt to return to divinity- see link below. I feel like she has grown beyond her silly mistake- that perhaps that was the necessary fumble for her, so she would be in isolation, and able to explore the mysteries of humanity and divinity in solitude.
I see her, not as selfish or stupid, but as gentle, and grown wise from her mistakes. I feel that she has a lot of compassion for humans, being that she once stood where we are now.
The trees are in their autumn beauty,
The woodland paths are dry,
Under the October twilight the water
Mirrors a still sky
