Today on the 3♦️ of Diamonds in Aries, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Mars card in the Waking Spread which is the Seven if Diamonds. This reading is primarily about the 3♦️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/24, 2/22, 3/20, 4/18, 5/16, 6/14, 7/12, 8/10, 9/8, 10/6, 11/4, and 12/2.

The 3♦️ decides the values one wants to seek and create. When Unconscious, one repeats past experience without learning from the same relationship mistakes, and this is grueling punishment for oneself and for one’s associates also. When Awakened, one takes responsibility for one’s personal life, one accepts the pain of relationships, and one embraces whatever issues one must address to rise above the ashes of failed relationships to become a master of value and a generous wise guide.

In early life and pervading one’s thinking, intense desire requires steady effort which can be difficult to begin taking new action or difficult to stop old actions. One is attracted to experts and to expertise; practicing good boundaries is a lifelong effort especially in love relationships or potential ones. One gets needs met during the years 14-20, 26-38, and all one’s life for those born April 18th and November 4th by establishing balance with values including one’s expenses, and a balanced viewpoint in general. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual, adventure and romance are foremost in one’s mind. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; one takes risks in love and work; but there are consequences to miscalculations, and one gains maturity thru suffering errors. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences, there may be resistance to required adjustments in work; however to the extent one accepts the inevitable, great advances are available. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate; it becomes clear that there are many avenues of growth in one’s life that one can pursue to make life easier and richer.

The 5❤️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that the 3♦️ benefits from meeting new people while letting long-standing associates become de-emphasized when the relationships do not evolve appropriately with one’s personal evolution. It is difficult for one to let friends go at times, just as it is difficult to meet new people. But change in emotional relationships is a great benefit as change will usually be an improvement.

The Q♠️ Waking Mirror indicates that the 3♦️ attempts to take full responsibility for all situations in one’s life at great personal cost. It is an unfortunate fantasy that one is entirely responsible for the actions of others. Each person’s bears some individual responsibility. Personal responsibility and integrity are certainly assets, but one can take it too far.

As Double Sleeping Mars, the 3♦️ has the capacity to defend one’s values without doing harm or causing blowback. One can find true value in this world and enjoy it without delay. One can and one should. Be active and be fast.

Life is short, so let go and let one’s Higher Power and Wisdom lead.
