Astro-Tarot Readings – 9/21

This week we make what feels like a summersault of intensity into the Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. For our friends in the Southern Hemisphere we say to you: Happy Spring!The Equinox gives us equal day and equal night, equal dark and equal light. The Sun also enters LIBRA, a sign represented by balanced scales. I can’t help but hear a call to honor the life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, a pioneer in women’s rights and civil liberties.

The Vacant Wound

I prayed, journaled, added warmth, cooling gels, applied salves, balanced crystals, took drugs, joined support groups, I praised my uterus, I asked it for forgiveness, I went to acupuncture, I ignored it, talked about it, stretched, convinced myself I was crazy, went to physical therapy and resigned myself to a life of discomfort, wondered why and then decided, isn’t pain reason enough?
