Today on the Three of Spades in Aries, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Mars card in the Waking Spread which is the Five of Diamonds. This reading is primarily about the 3♠️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/11, 2/9, 3/7, 4/5, 5/3, and 6/1.
The 3♠️ goes with the flow in a series of decisions. When Unconscious, one attempts to hold on to past gains even by sacrifice of dynamic living. When Awakened, one realizes oneself as a blessed and fortunate being who is able to venture forth with the favor of good judgement coupled with a zest for life.
In early life and pervading one’s thinking, prosperity bears the price of tolerance of social discomfort; one must deal with emotional loss part of the time. One is attracted to correct thinking and communicating which requires reserve and serenity. One gets needs met during the years 14-20, 26-38, and all one’s life for those born April 5th by being willing to trade one value for another without sacrificing positive feelings that life is a blessing. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual, self-discipline and endless work and effort produce excellent health and accomplishment. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; it is imperative to maintain rigorous honesty with oneself that one is on the track one considers one’s life work, for if one stays true to oneself, then one reaches a pinnacle of success. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences, there may be losses that one tries to will away and one will have variable results. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate; one seeks to lead an ethical life that is neither too self serving nor too altruistic.
The 9♠️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that the 3♠️ is intent on successful conclusions for all efforts. But, one needs to understand natural processes to see exactly how success arises from counter-intuitive processes. Late Winter pruning is a process of removing parts of a thriving plant that are growing very well but are nonetheless in the way of even more vibrant growth that will mature the plant to fullness in the Spring. One must be vigilantly attentive to oneself and one’s efforts to know what in one’s life is ready to be pruned even though it is a loss and an expense.
The 8♠️ Waking Mirror indicates that the 3♠️thinks that one can will experience into existence. And amazingly, one can. It’s just not always as beneficial as one may initially imagine. Sometimes, one is forcing an experience into being. Other times, like magic, one is creating miraculous progress. To the extent that one is tuned in to the will of the Universe and acting with awareness, there will be assistance provided and it will help one overall.
The Q❤️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that the 3♠️has a finely tuned sense of what feels good and what feels bad. One’s fortune is brought to oneself through pleasure. One learns to make quick effortless decisions by honoring pleasure. One also needs to ensure that one does not indulge the senses to avoid solid useful choices.
Luck is a skill that can be strengthened by embracing one’s gut reactions and stepping out of the old and into the new when it strikes one as better.
