Book: Being held in bondage, undesirable forces, chained down by materialism, temptation, call to awaken to responsibility, integrate and channel the life force.
Guidance: Live in balance. Accept the wealth the world has to offer.
Since the DruidCraft deck was my first tarot deck, I always think about Cernunous when I see this card. He is the horned god of the hunt and in that deck the "devil" is not evil, but a force to be channeled. Overindulging is what puts is unto bondage.
This card like so many tarot carts speaks for balance. It is when we get out of balance that life becomes unmanageable and addictions are a good indication that life is unmanageable. This card could also be speaking to me of my need to break my sugar addiction. I know it is killing me, but I still shovel sugar in my mouth. I'm not sure how to break the addiction and get back on track. I need to ask for guidance.

I'm getting chills as I read what I wrote because today while Cam and I were out walking, I talked about how so many stories about addiction don't talk about the spiritual side of healing and the need to ask for help to take the addiction away. I know when I was in college and was drinking too much, it was AA that truly helped me to break the addiction. Asking for help and turning my addiction over to a higher power truly helped me to heal. It didn't make it easy, but it did help me to recover.
It was a higher power that also helped me to deal with my codependency after my marriage imploded. By turning it over to a higher power, I was able to find the strength to heal and to leave behind some of my addictive and co-dependent behavior.
I admit that I am powerless over sugar and my life and health has become unmanageable. I know that you can help me with this addiction and I am humbling asking you to do so and to take away my cravings for the sugar that is slowly killing me.
