Today on the Five of Diamonds in Aries, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Mars card in the Waking Spread which is the Nine of Diamonds. This reading is primarily about the 5♦️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/22, 2/20, 3/18, 4/16, 5/14, 6/12, 7/10, 8/8, 9/6, 10/4, and 11/2.

The 5♦️ changes values and exchanges objects of value. When Unconscious, one resists loss of wealth or personal rights and privileges with the readiness to do battle if needed to maintain position. When Awakened, one benefits from trust in the Universe to bring all the useful opportunities one may need through a free sharing of ideas without reserve.

In early life and pervading one’s thinking, a desire for self mastery is in constant tension with the desire for value. One is attracted to enthusiastic communication and one seeks to be effective and persuasive. One gets needs met during the years 14-20, 26-38, and all one’s life for those born April 16th and November 2nd by sharing values with others as well as generously giving wealth especially when in love. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual, intense desire for experience in life generally and with others must be tempered with balanced living that respects rules and boundaries. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; the need to share ideas and pleasure is often thwarted or comes with a heavy price. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences, creative methods of deriving value may be stymied by laws and other forces. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate; one learns to find and produce value in ways that are not problematic yet are still easy.

The 6♣️ Dreaming/Waking Mirror indicates that the 5♦️is prepared to maintain one’s viewpoint all of one’s life. One plans to have a particular type of life with no plans for change. One expects life to deliver in response to one’s efforts. But, one is lulling oneself into complacency. In fact, there are aspects of one’s life one wants to change. It will take resistance from the Universe to pry one’s fingers loose from one’s plans. Then, one will change one’s ideas because one realizes one has no choice.

The 10♣️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that the 5♦️knows exactly what to think about failed initiatives. Often, one fails in a goal and one thinks one just has to do better in the same effort. But actually there are often major change of direction that is needed. One may need to refine direction or one may need an overhaul. One does know exactly what is needed for success. One will discover the best methods and one will then make the adjustments.

Change of values is often needed for success.
