Deformity is a message that something isn't constructed quite right. It can also signify that one aspect of your life is thriving at the expense of something that is being undermined or 'malnourished.' Any symbol that is deformed, or constructed in an ‘unusual’ way, offers clues to that part of your nature that is undeveloped, or expressed unnaturally. If it is something in nature, it can suggest unnatural growth or a type of protectiveness that is holding you back. A deformed body part can have associations with the body part used as a symbol -see: Anatomy and Body Parts.
