Here are the cards I pulled for today's Aries ingress.
Appropriately, The Emperor came up. He's the Aries card, and he's reversed. This means his authority and power are distorted - he's autocratic and/or powerless. Fear of being powerless can result in overcompensation. Then we have The Devil. This is the Capricorn card, so it echoes the Capricorn/Aries square of the third quarter Moon I wrote about here. The Devil is about being a slave to an unhealthy situation. In this case, that would be the powerlessness of the Emperor.
Where do you feel powerless? Is someone in authority overcompensating for their lack of power, and making you feel trapped? If you look at the Devil card, the chains are loose. You're not stuck in this situation.
The 5 of Wands reversed is the final card. This is the card of struggle. If upright, it's necessary struggle/competition. But reversed, it means you're avoiding the struggle. Saturn in Leo is associated with this card - the effort to manifest (Saturn) something special (Leo). Have you given up the fight because you think you don't have the power? There's something worth creating, and it's going to take effort.
The Emperor and 5 of Wands are Fire cards, while The Devil is Earth. Fire plus Fire is strong, but Earth sits between them. Earth and Fire don't undermine or strengthen each other. This means all the energies in the spread are moderated. The struggle doesn't have to be overwhelming - the negativity of the Devil is a bit less. It won't be a cakewalk, but there's something worth fighting for and it's achievable.
Want some guidance, but can't wait for an astrology reading? My tarot readings are an excellent alternative- wait times are one to three days.
