Today on the Eight of Clubs in Taurus, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Venus card in the Waking Spread which is the Four of Spades. This reading is primarily about the 8♣️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 3/28, 4/26, 5/24, 6/22, 7/20, 8/18, 9/16, 10/14, 11/12, and 12/10.

The 8♣️ concentrates mental energy to master thinking, planning, and communicating with the environment. One has opportunities to cooperate with others, but one is driven and may prefer one’s own ideas over that of others. It is important not to manipulate others with powerful communication as others have their own plans and may not share the same ideals.

In early life and pervading one’s thinking, love relationships with those that share values and ideals are preferred. One is attracted during the years 7-13, 13-25, and all one’s life for those born April 26th and October 14th by intense desire to manifest goals and hard work that will implement them effectively. One gets needs met by gentle nurturing and sweet lovely attractiveness. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual, material success is almost a given as prosperity is easily available with scant effort because one is gifted. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; one works very hard for one’s desires but values are in flux and one may easily give up hard won gains. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences, the nature of love and the highest values come into focus with unexpected realizations. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate; the focus is on the introduction and receipt of value.

The 6♠️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that the 8♣️ is determined to work hard for one’s ideals. Conflict with others that can help in one’s efforts is not required. With effort, accommodations can be made that satisfy those that may help accomplish one’s goals.

The 2♠️ Waking Mirror indicates that the 8♣️ benefits most from cooperative efforts. Knowing what one intends and carrying it out are not the same thing. So, use tact and courtesy and be generous so that others maintain a friendly attitude with oneself.

The K♣️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that the 8♣️ is on the correct road to manifest ideals. One knows what one intends. But, one’s own determination makes one so driven and somewhat removed from human experience that others are detached from one’s goals as they do not understand the goals and their importance. Take time to explain and to illustrate and to demonstrate. Gradually, others that can help will have their own motivation to help. They will own the goal for themselves. And they will see one as helping them. They will appear to follow one’s lead, yet they will feel they are walking along side the leader.

Mastery of planning is a first step to accomplishment that requires cooperation coupled with instruction and leadership.
