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

The 9♦️culminates a progression of value by planting, growing, maturing, harvesting, pruning, and being willing to plough under so that fertilization of soil will allow new growth in value. When Unconscious, one continues to strive for a new harvest of old crops though it has become clear that new seeds are required in fresh soil; yet one prefers the old to the new. When Awakened, one takes aggressive action to identify that which must be lost in order to have the greatest gain; and one lets go of old possessions to build new more productive ones.

In early life and pervading one’s thinking, one strives to get needs met and to voice desires; there is a learning process to become forthright and live within a code. One is attracted during the years 7-13, 13-25, and all one’s life for those born May 10th by intimate conversations and social gatherings. One gets needs met by commanding others in a sweet way such that there can be no argument. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual, one reaps easy financial fortune and one travels for work and pleasure. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; one seeks to establish and sustain family harmony, but one will either be faced with a critical other or have work restraining oneself from judgement. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences, one works to establish firm values including maintaining budget, and one integrates life experiences. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate; one spends quality spend time with others and recognizes relationships as a treasure.

The 8♠️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that the 9♦️avoids letting decay take over to pave the way for new growth. One finds it more satisfying to work harder and harder with relentless determination to reap rewards from old activities. The good news is that once one is ready to let the old decay for the sake of the new, one has all the needed capacity to move the new into full production.

The J♠️ Waking Mirror indicates that the 9♦️is not always honest with oneself regarding observations and judgements of the status quo. One may even fight others that point out a problem with current goals and activities rather than face the truth. Often one begins activities by modeling successful others, and one may feel lost by the idea of radical change. One does have a tremendously creative spirit to generate solutions to any problem. Once one decides to identify solutions, one will quickly apply great effort to make needed changes.

The 4♣️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that the 9♦️has the capacity to relax and watch the madness transmute to evolution. Once one is relaxing, the fight against the problem recedes. One begins to identify with personal power, personal values and resources, and immense creativity. There is nothing one cannot do.

Creativity and youth are one’s gifts, but maturity and peace are the foods that one needs to relax and evolve.
