Today on the Eight of Spades in Capricorn, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Saturn card in the Waking Spread which is the Three of Clubs. This reading is primarily about the 8♠️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/6, 2/4, and 3/2.
The 8♠️ concentrates efforts to manifest work, health, and spiritual experiences. When Unconscious, one may insist on doing things a certain way and one may order or manipulate others to do things a certain way rather than fully exploring projects and using a facilitative approach with helpers. When Awakened, one vigilantly attends to one’s own thoughts and manners of communicating as one proceeds to achieve success in various experiences.
In early life, one seeks much attention from caregivers; one always measures the value one receives from others as an indication of positive attention. One is attracted to things of value, and one will try to hold on to things once they are acquired; one may be attracted to those that are similarly inclined. One will work to attain wealth, but one does not stay with routine work for long. By mid-age, one has become an adventurous person…doing what one wants and avoiding what one doesn’t care to join. As one matures, especially during ages 28-34 and 52-64 and all life for those born January 6, one learns with difficulty that words do matter and the way one says them or neglects to say them when appropriate has consequences. As one ages, one learns to share ideas with others when choosing one’s path; sharing ideas with others reveals the clear path forward. In old age, one experiences losses and one has to let stuff go without resisting; in letting go, one discovers beauty and happiness as a surprising finale to a lifetime of building and amassing.
The 9♦️ Dreaming Mirror indicates the 8♠️ learns that letting go of value one has attained or that one has tried to attain unleashes physical energy that one can then use in the same or different projects with greater success. Not every forceful effort to succeed is destiny. Some things are destined to fail. Letting go of individual parts of a grand plan are often required such as editing scenes in a movie, but the 8♠️ resists letting go of any past work and gain. However, letting go of personal values for the sake of progress coincides with a visionary perspective that paves the way to success.
The 3♠️ Waking Mirror indicates that one has willingness to work. Some of one’s efforts result in wins and others do not result in success. Due to experience, one knows in one’s gut when to assist in the abandonment of an effort and when to continue making steady efforts.
The Double Uranus position in the Sleeping Spread indicates that the 8♠️ prefers tasks that are wholly new and unexpected. One is most comfortable with the unusual and amazing. One spends one’s life working on projects within structures that sometimes reward one’s efforts and sometimes interfere with one’s efforts and result in failure. The natural condition of one’s being is that of total freedom. The 8♠️ is a visionary. Others follow to implement one’s greatest ideas.
The most gets accomplished when one makes steady efforts on one’s goals with the willingness to let others make adjustments to the effort.
