AEDM #7 - The Burning Circle

The month of November is primarily in the sign of Scorpio. Among other things, the  sign of Scorpio  is about power, control and transformation. When I was creating this mandala, the words the burning rose to the surface.

It got me thinking about letting go of relationships and old patterns that  no longer help me or I've outgrown. Sometimes letting go is just hard. We (I) carry the illusion that we (I) can actually control what goes on around us (me). We (I) resist change.

Burning facilitates transformation.

I first read it as "the burning rose" which also seemes appropiate. It seems to burn from within.
