Today on the Jack of Diamonds in Taurus, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Venus card in the Waking Spread which is the Four of Diamonds. This reading is primarily about the J♦️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/16, 2/14, 3/12, 4/10, 5/8, 6/6, 7/4, and 8/2.
The J♦️ youthfully, creatively, courageously, and sometimes recklessly demonstrates values in one’s longings and desires. When Unconscious, one negates one’s gut and heart level imperatives due to concerns over loss of station and privilege. When Awakened, one creatively and heroically accepts pains, burdens, and necessary suffering to propel oneself forward on a morally superior course at a significant tangent from one’s birthright destiny moving one from a life of self-seeking to one that is service oriented and filled with love and caring for others.
In early life and pervading one’s thinking; one needs a family to feel fully involved, yet one is restless to change one’s values all the time. One is attracted during the years 7-13, 13-25, and all one’s life for those born May 8th by acquiring tangibles and intangibles one loves and cherishes. One gets needs met by planning out idyllic events and then securing help to bring them about. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual; one falls in to deep meaningful love relationships with enormous levels of intoxicating charisma, but there are often significant levels of conflict. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; personal integrity needs to be refined while one nurtures intense desires that need to be fulfilled. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences; one continues to seek pleasure and nurturing, and there are often unexpected events that change the nature of significant relationships. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate; the need to offer and receive nurturing and pleasure can evolve into empathic gentleness.
The K♥️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that the J♦️tends to foster the emotional well being of associates, but one can throw fantastic temper-tantrums when dissatisfied. One has tremendous opportunities to let go of selfishness at times that one should avail in a timely manner. Selfless service expressed through patient listening is an excellent spiritual practice.
The 6♠️ Waking Mirror indicates that the J♦️has many opportunities with partners to radically shift one’s karma. One can throw off old negative karma and embrace new positive karma, thus changing the direction of one’s evolution. It is usually more comfortable to simply continue as in the past; take a risk with a healthy new behavior with a friend and surprise this Universe with a radical shift.
The 6♣️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that the J♦️is controlled by mental habits. It has been said that the teacher appears when the student is ready. One can long for wealth, beauty, and ease; but, one will live the life that evolves from one’s mental preparation. The key for one to change one’s pattern of fortune for the better is looking for win-win opportunities to share with others, rather than easy wins mainly for oneself.
One initially accepts as valuable things that parents and other teachers appreciate; as life experience piles up, one recognizes inherent value through personal lenses.
