Today on the Two of Diamonds in Taurus, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Venus card in the Waking Spread which is the Eight of Clubs. This reading is primarily about the 2♦️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/25, 2/23, 3/21, 4/19, 5/17, 6/15, 7/13, 8/11, 9/9, 10/7, 11/5, and 12/3.

The 2♦️ co-creates value and valuables, and within relationships one shares values and valuables. When Unconscious, when often prefers to insist on specific methods of communication even when force is required to persuade others as one tends to get anxious when there are misunderstandings. When Awakened, one introduces and receives value and valuables that one most desires and that lead one to love.

In early life and pervading one’s thinking, one is talented and intelligent; sometimes one is led to believe one needs to be cunning and persuasive to succeed; but these are unnecessary traits. One is attracted during the years 7-13, 13-25, and all one’s life for those born May 17th and October 7th by intense concentration of mental ability and mental freedom. One gets needs met by holding fast to one’s values and valuables while insisting on serious far reaching goals. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual, one works for everything one truly desires, and one develops lifelong communication habits that serve one well. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; one puts too much effort into selfless service; one does well to do heavy lifting in the area of honest personal and intimate communication. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences, one may have various difficult emotional losses and disappointments, but material goals should generally prosper. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate; one attuned oneself to one’sown personal power; and one realizes that anything one did with others was probably more difficult than doing alone; one begins to appreciate one’s own power.

The 7♠️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that the 2♦️faces obstacles when communicating with others. One gets stopped when talking to others when one is attached to one’s desires and precipitates distrust in oneself and others. One begins to resolve issues of distrust when one allows for communication to be gentle enough to discover a win-win situation with a partner.

The 3♣️ Waking/Sleeping Mirrors indicate that the 2♦️often feels like one has to do all the talking in order for there to be good communication. One thinks that silence is oppressive because then things are left unsaid. It is therefore comforting to be speaking. Unfortunately, the right words may not be selected at the right time and others may identify with the alienation one already feels. One needs to begin using communication with awareness that one wants to use communication to derive shared value in relationships; one has something to offer and an exchange can happen; and one does not have to accept a bad deal for oneself. One can honestly describe the parameters of a good deal, and see if another is attracted to the shared value.

Partnership works when there is a mutual benefit, and one does well to tell it like it is in a hurry so the enterprise begins.
