Today on the Four of Spades in Aries, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Mars card in the Waking Spread which is the Eight of Spades. This reading is primarily about the 4♠️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/10, 2/8, 3/6, 4/4, and 5/2.
The 4♠️ builds and sustains a foundation of personal existence. When Unconscious, one plans for success but hopes that others will guide one or assist one; one needs to visualize oneself succeeding and proceed on one’s plans without delay. When Awakened, one accepts assistance from generous others as one takes disciplined steps within a self-imposed structure of systematic effort toward successful completion of goals one has forseen.
In early life and pervading one’s thinking, social success and mastery over values are considered vital. One is attracted to complete prosperity and balanced values. One gets needs met during the years 14-20, 26-38, and all one’s life for those born April 4th by applying oneself completely to challenges that capture one’s interest. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual, love and financial security can both be achieved; it is possible one will overdo both. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; the desire to achieve personal values including wealth acquisition may encourage one to misrepresent oneself which should be avoided. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences, wealth accrues and one succeeds in many of one’s preferences, but relationships may easily suffer; encourage flexibility in friendship. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate; the need to regularly adjust feelings is an overwhelming need that should be embraced.
The 7❤️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that the 4♠️ is learning to request help and to respect personal boundaries of self and others. Others can teach specific skills that one needs, and others may also provide the personal motivation one needs to actually have lasting goals of success. Others may gradually become one’s family for whom and with whom one ultimately succeeds.
The J❤️ Waking Mirror indicates that the 4♠️ needs to sacrifice for loved ones in order to have sufficient motivation to succeed in one’s goals. One can build the castle but without the family inside, it is of limited use. One works for others as well as for oneself.
The Sleeping Mars Crown indicates that the 4♠️ has great ambition to get work done toward one’s needs. No amount of effort and drive is off the table. Massive pushes in the initial stage of efforts often determine the ultimate success.
Planning for work is almost as good as work once one is actually working. A harmonious emotional life will keep one working as long as necessary to complete one’s goals.
