Today on the Seven of Diamonds in Aquarius, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Uranus card in the Waking Spread which is the King of Hearts. This reading is primarily about the 7♦️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/20, 2/18, 3/16, 4/14, 5/12, 6/10, 7/8, 8/6, 9/4, and 10/2.
The 7♦️ balances values between polarities of worth such as material versus spiritual, healthful versus indulgent, familial versus individual, and many other potential conflicts that must be negotiated in the course of one’s life. When Unconscious, one experiences the loss of emotional relationships and pleasures as a punishment rather than as natural part of the ebb and flow of the tides. When Awakened, one sees oneself as a natural part of the Universe who co-exists for a short period with others some of whom will live longer and others who will live less than oneself; while together, conscious individuals strive to enjoy and appreciate one other.
In early life and pervading one’s thinking, there is abundance of variety to be enjoyed and one constantly experiences new people, places, and things. One is attracted to creating a foundation of worth while loving adventurously. One gets needs met by effective communication with others; opportunities arise by generously sharing the limits of one’s information with others who in turn fill-in some of the missing details that enable one to quickly achieve success with creative courage and daring. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual, one often must let go of life tendencies that do not serve one’s present and future lifestyle; emotional relationships go through significant changes that require personal changes to be fluid and accepting. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; love relationships and security go hand in hand; one must work on both simultaneously; when building personal security, love relationships should become more available and enjoyable. 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 18th; one learns that control of one’s own or others’ feelings is an illusory desire; one can only control how one speaks and acts in response to feelings, and one has no control over others, but one can offer support through comfort and other material ways. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate; one attains a type of mastery over values; one has experienced much, one knows one’s preferences, and one guides others to their preferred values.
There are no mirrors for the 7♦️, whose life is defined by a sibling card, the 9❤️ which experiences life as primarily blocked and obstructed. Desire and pleasure are ultimately met with defeat and separations from attractions. Only in the waking state does the 7♦️ experience one’s balancing of value as a predominately pleasurable act. In the dream and deep sleep states, 7♦️ experiences one life as primarily based on limitations, restrictions, and difficulties that require continuous effort to balance with pleasure and satisfaction.
The 7♦️ is the number one card of pleasure in the deck. But below the surface, there is suffering. One enjoys family, friends, food, and wealth as much as one does because the sensitivity to deprivation is so close at hand.
Balance values by maintaining continuous awareness of deprivation while enjoying family and daily pleasures.
