Today on the Four of Diamonds in Pisces, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Neptune card in the Waking Spread which is the Eight of Diamonds. This reading is primarily about the 4♦️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/23, 2/21, 3/19, 4/17, 5/15, 6/13, 7/11, 8/9, 9/7, 10/5, 11/3, and 12/1.
The 4♦️ builds and sustains values including financial strength. When Unconscious, one seeks to change one’s environment including relationships because one feels that one has immediately become aware of one’s perfect life that other people and things are obstructing. When Awakened, one constantly changes existing relationships as part of an effort to create and sustain situations of value that may provide even greater more sustainable value with appreciation and disciplined effort.
In early life and pervading one’s thinking, activity partners are mentally adventurous, and one enjoys sharing ideas and goals with a friend. One is attracted to charismatic individuals, but one changes feelings often, so friendships need to be flexible. One gets needs met by determined thinking and communicating; building and sustaining security is essential. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual, one works continually on one’s business and values; one may develop leadership skills. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; the desire for pleasure is intense and often limited by available partners and financial resources. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences, curiosity and delivery of information go hand in hand. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate during the years 42-48, 78-90, and all one’s life for those born March 19th; special abilities and financial strength become available; and one may embark on a new way of life.
The Q❤️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that the 4♦️seeks pleasure that causes suffering. One wants to nurture and be nurtures but one is often limited. One has to work to initiate pleasure, and one has to work to sustain pleasure. One can realize that it is one’s own thinking that creates these limitations and difficulties.
The 2❤️ Waking Mirror indicates that the 4♦️wants an ideal love relationship. Idealism is a fantasy that can be brought to reality only by accepting the life as it currently exists. Dreams manifest with work in the real world. Acceptance of the current situation is the starting point where one must begin.
The 7♠️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that the 4♦️wants a life of pleasure and satisfaction, but one may not recognize that pleasure is fleeting even in the most fabulous circumstances. For instance, once one has attained the wealth needed to buy the best food, one may discover that one has developed significant dietary restrictions. Or once one has attained the best bed, one may have developed insomnia. There will always be limits placed on the enjoyment of pleasures. Thus, one’s encouraged to look beyond pleasure toward balanced living that appreciates work, struggle, and reward with equanimity such that no experience is viewed with prejudice. Enjoyment of all of life is the only pleasure that is lasting.
Build a foundation of value by embracing change as nothing lasts in the material world.
