5♦️/ J♣️

Today on the Five of Diamonds in Libra, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Venus card in the life spread which is the Jack of Clubs. This reading is about certain aspects of the Jack of Clubs.

The J♣️ is mental creativity. The J♣️ is the one card in the deck that is so smart, the mental creativity may be one’s undoing at times. Some folks are so smart they generate reasons to fail. Self-defeatism is a pitfall of this card. On the other hand, the J♣️ is incredibly interested in supporting others’ success. It is much easier for the J♣️ to give loving attention to others’ struggles than to attend to one’s own struggles at times. The J♣️ has the capacity to be creative with values and steer a clear route through any problem whether it is innate, self-created, or the result of chance. The J♣️ will have to exercise patience in the process of changing directions and of goal maintenance. The J♣️ will need to find ways to stay on a good path for oneself. The J♣️ that does keep an even keel and proceed through turbulence has opportunities for wonderful joyous living where pleasures are creatively fulfilled.

The 9♠️ Waking Mirror indicates that the J♣️ is aware of a variety of changes that are needed in oneself. These changes are best addressed with steady effort while accepting one’s karma. The J♣️ benefits from deep change and often does whole life make-overs. The best kind of make-over is the slow and steady variety in which new seeds are planted and allowed to take over the existing crop of habits and lifestyles by rendering the old obsolete. Planting new manners of living allows the old life to gradually reduce in importance without creating major life disruption.

The 5♣️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that the J♣️ wants to change course but often is unaware of what specific changes are needed. So, the J♣️ experiments with change as the mind is not calm and organized enough to see change with surgical clarity. Turbulent emotional nerves drive the J♣️ to throw the baby out with the bath water at times. The J♣️ needs to instead chillax. Gradually, the J♣️ is taking the hint and thinking decisions through all the way to the final consequences before setting a path in motion. The J♣️ is gradually becoming more efficient and effective.

Today is a good day to imagine changes to one’s routine as many changes are needed; calm the mind and the changes today become an effortless act.
