Today on the Two of Diamonds in Aquarius, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Uranus card in the Waking Spread which is the Ten of Diamonds. This reading is primarily about the 2♦️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/25, 2/23, 3/21, 4/19, 5/17, 6/15, 7/13, 8/11, 9/9, 10/7, 11/5, and 12/3.

The 2♦️ partners with others to share values, and one attracts values through partners. When Unconscious, one negates spiritual principles including communication of the purest integrity to get one’s needs met by others. When Awakened, one introduces and attracts value by inviting feedback from others so that others feel honored to participate in the co-creation of value.

In early life, one learns to follow the leader in bold actions that may not be of the highest quality, and one learns also that cooperation requires mental adjustment to one’s perceptions of the others’ plans. Focused intelligence is attractive, and one does not let oneself get boxed into specific viewpoints. One works hard to achieve personal values, and any that challenge one while one manifests one’s goals will have to work very hard or approach with great determination to overcome one’s plans. In mid-life, one has become an intense worker, focused on personal security; one’s ability to benefit from communication with others through shared opportunities yields benefits. As one matures, one cares for a wide group of individuals and one is appreciated but one will often feel drained by social obligations; dynamic intimate conversation with others is difficult. As one ages during the years 35-41 and 65-77 and all one’s life for those born January 25th, sudden financial windfalls or losses are to be expected; relationships are best when one doesn’t expect much as any pleasure will feel wonderful, while any suffering will feel bearable. In old age, one brings significant intensity to all tasks, and one runs the risk of letting others do things that benefit self more than the other party. Bringing love to all relationships is the most certain way to get most of one’s desires met.

The 7♠️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that the 2 ♦️ wrestles with subtleties in communication that benefit oneself. One is able to attract value to oneself through appreciation and flattery which is good for all involved most of the time. It is best to encourage partners to fully explore their personal needs and desires before immediately seizing on offers that benefit oneself. Encouraging others to meet their own preferences results in the most satisfaction for all.

The 3♣️ is both Waking and Sleeping Mirror so the 2♦️ has daily challenges with direct communication and one also has hidden strengths in direct communication. One uses direct communication to identify shared value and to negotiate meeting needs, so communication facilitates pleasure and satisfaction. As one uses communication to derive value for oneself, there is the risk of excessive self-seeking through communication. One is faced with daily challenges to rise to a new level of balancing authentic preferences and compassion for self and partners as one discovers value through direct communication.

Sharing value may actually create new value, so one need not fear that a win requires a lose; check-in with others to see that the other is satisfied if at least not unhappy and also ensure one’s own happiness.
