Today on the Eight of Spades in Aquarius, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Uranus card in the Waking Spread which is the Three of Spades. 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 experience and accomplishes intense activities. When Unconscious, one attempts to force others to manifest one’s creativity and ambition without seeking mutual investment; though one can fulfill a treasured vision with others’ cooperation when one uses purity of intent to attract collaborators. When Awakened, one remains aware of one’s thinking and communicating and deliberately encourages others to share in the work and rewards of one’s visions.
In early life and pervading one’s thinking all one’s life, the 8♠️ seeks to be appreciated and to bring joy to others while sharing value together. One is attracted to value and one attracts others by offering value, though at times there will be adjustments that must be made lest one argues with partners. One gets needs met by declaring ownership and authority, one’s needs change often and one needs to share as needs change so that efforts stay current with new objectives. In mid-life and as one succeeds and evolves spiritually, taking complete responsibility for one’s goals provides the greatest success and happiness; feelings change and one grows closer or more distant from partners, and one should act decisively. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; one is held responsible for one’s speech and one’s neglected speech; reward and elevation are likely at these times to the degree that one has maintained high integrity in thought and word. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences during the years 35-41, 65-77, and all one’s life for those born February 4th; one faces gut-wrenching choices as one feels torn between dreams and responsibilities; it is invaluable to share one’s thinking with others at these times; later, one will use intuitive listening to help others through similar dilemmas. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate; desires, feelings, and memories flood toward oneself as one realizes a life of experience and intensity has passed; one begins the work of reconciling feelings with the purity of one’s heart.
The 9♦️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that the 8♠️ may be slightly aware that intense focus on individual goals may be costly in terms of lost value in other areas. One has to be willing to allow losses in areas of less immediate importance to rapidly pursue the most important goals.
The 3♠️ Waking Mirror indicates that the 8♠️ is ready to employ one’s vital energy to create a new experience. However, one will discover that that others and oneself sometimes do not follow one’s gut to focus energy on the most vital and important goal but instead spread energy and charisma thin which drains the energy rather than focus and channel it directly and specifically.
As Double Uranus card in the Sleeping Spread the 8♠️ is fundamentally dissatisfied with the current state of experience and has significant goals for molding one’s life into something completely different. One may take action with raw power that overwhelms the status quo, but the most natural method one employs is helping along the revolution of change that is already imminent or in process as one senses fundamental change is needed or already taking place.
One accomplishes much by planning and maintaining personal integrity that requires willingness to expend one’s own resources on one’s goals and to be completely committed before encouraging others to sacrifice for one’s vision.
