Today on the King of Diamonds in Aries, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Mars card in the Waking Spread which is the Two of Diamonds. This reading is primarily about the K♦️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/14, 2/12, 3/10, 4/8, 5/6, 6/4, and 7/2.

The K♦️ takes responsibility for personal values including financial decisions. When Unconscious, one second-guesses one’s own best judgement and hesitates to implement decisions. When Awakened, one allows oneself to be liberated by an attitude of non-attachment to the results of the best decisions, and one proceeds in the confidence that success will occur more than randomly by attending to every detail with excellence.

In early life and pervading one’s thinking; effort is required to maintain peaceful interaction with friends and family when seeking satisfaction in daily life. One is attracted to thoughtful exploration of the world and its treasures. One gets needs met during the years 14-20, 26-38, and all one’s life for those born April 8th by working with others to build personal values into a strong foundation such as a business. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual; one watches successful behavior of others and implements creative solutions to existing goals. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; mental concentration and organization may lead to isolation as others do not meet current criteria. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences; one becomes determined to do whatever is required to make forward progress in personal values. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate; establishing and sustaining a lifestyle of security and order is a daily effort.

The A♦️ Dreaming and Sleeping Mirrors indicate that the K♦️has the desire to discover and introduce value. One wants to have and enjoy value, but also one wants to demonstrate and share value. Others’ happiness with material and with social progress proves the value that one brings.

The 5♠️ Waking Mirror indicates that the K♦️is dissatisfied with much of the existing world and one’s own life. Dissatisfaction with current life can be resolved in two ways, one of which is by surrender to the status quo, and the other is by an upheaval of the existing order. There is a need to change many aspects of one’s life. Rather than striving blindly to establish social fulfillment, one can instead evolve into a radically different person. One may make these fundamental changes by traveling or by developing one’s own abilities.

Mastery of value requires a free flowing mind and non-attached actions; one discovers the best value with the willingness to take a grand departure.
