Today’s cards: Spring equinox and alchemical rebirth

by | Mar 19, 2023 | Clarity Readings, Daily card

Tomorrow evening the sun will move into Aries, beginning a new solar year and marking the spring equinox, followed within 24 hours by a new moon in Aries. Mercury, Chiron and Jupiter are hanging out in Aries as well, preceded by Venus and Uranus one sign ahead in Taurus, followed by Neptune and Saturn one sign behind in Pisces, and Pluto in the final minute (1/60th of a degree) of Aqua. With all planets in the solar system direct, the energy right now is full on, packed with full-steam-ahead power. Brick walls are prone to getting punched through like the Kool-Aid man at any time right now.

This kind of unstoppable confidence and power is what it takes for rebirth, regeneration, recharging—all words that came out of these cards today. This is the end of an era and the beginning of something new, and the train is not slowing down to let people on or off anymore. Wherever the course has been set, that’s where we’re going.

And from all indications, our destination is the peace and partnership that comes from being true to the realest, deepest parts of ourselves, while at the same time knowing that others’ truth and pain is just as important to them as ours is to us. This is the balance of the cardinal cross: if we can build a brotherhood of love in pain, we open doors to collective regeneration.

It seems like we’ve passed through a phase, collectively speaking, of being lost in our own miasma of trauma and suffering, a condition that saps the will. But now we’ve come to the dynamite phase: no dicking around anymore, we’re going right through that mountain, even if it seems very solid and very thick. No punches pulled, no feelings spared as we look at ourselves and the world we’ve made and declare that this has got to change.

This still has a lot to do with our history and past trauma and ancestors, although we’re casting a wide net to include our unwritten “pre-history” and extraterrestrial, galactic ancestors—the ones who originally gave us the genetic bits that became our human DNA. Things that sounded bonkers a few years ago will be generally accepted as truth. The wheel turns and for once, we’re not fighting against the movement. We’re moving at breakneck speed, but there is peace.
