Card of the Week: March 19 – 26, 2017
This week we honor the first day of Spring (for those in the Northern Hemisphere). This is known as the Vernal Equinox — representing a time when day and night are relatively equal in length. It marks the onset of a time for new beginnings and fresh starts.
The Vernal Equinox coincides with the Sun moving into Aries (which occurs on Monday, March 20, at 10:28 UT) and the beginning of Spring. The Sun in Aries signals a time to come alive and see the world through brand new eyes. It’s a time for embracing life fully.
The Rebirth card — from Steven D. Farmer’s gorgeous Earth Magic Oracle deck — depicts this energy beautifully, with the Goddess Ostara surrounded by lush emblems of virility and sacred symbols of Spring.
The rabbit and bird’s nest represent fertility and birth. For Ostara (whose rescuing a baby bird and turning it into a magnificent hare is said to have led to modern day Easter Bunny rituals), these symbols have special significance.
The Owl in this card is a symbol of insight, clarity and wisdom, while the Butterfly represents metamorphosis and change. The golds and browns of Autumn give way to the blues and greens of Spring. These are also relatively equal, and befitting for those in the Southern latitudes, for whom the Equinox marks the first day of Fall.
No matter where you are in the world this week — whether for you it’s the first day of Autumn or the first day of Spring — you want to think about the areas in your life that need to be brought into balance. Think about what you need to clean up, set aside or relinquish back to the Universe.
The Rebirth Card invites you to assess the progress you’ve made toward achieving your goals and to put new plans into motion. With the day (consciousness and intention) and night (intuition and emotion) momentarily equal, the ability to synchronize your own inner rhythms will be unparalleled. Take some time to meditate and reflect, and then get on out there and embrace the day. This is a time for letting go of what no longer serves you and breathing new life into what does.
In this deck of 48 oracle cards, you’ll find descriptions and images of several of these Earth elements along with clear and concise messages from the spirits of each.
Through the use of these cards, you’ll uncover sensible advice that will provide guidance for questions you may have about any aspect of your life.
The image on this card was painted by acclaimed artist Helena Nelson-Reed.
