Today on the Three of Spades in Gemini, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Mercury card in the Waking Spread which is the Nine of Hearts. Since the 3♠️ was discussed in detail this week; this reading is primarily about the 9♥️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 8/30, 9/28, 10/26, 11/24, 12/22.

The 9♥️ matures and completes feelings and relationships. One intends very much to fulfill desires, but one is often unable to complete personal goals and unable to achieve pleasures that sustain without premature interruption. One does need to temper expectations as few in life get all desires fulfilled at every turn. In fact, relationships come to an end for every single person. Every flower wilts, dries, and dies. Still the desire for satisfaction is strong.

One sometimes considers abstinence from pleasure as the answer to suffering. But, the desire for pleasure simply builds. Pleasure and suffering are natural consequences of human life. One must experience both gain and loss. One learns to balance the two in one’s life.

In early life and pervading one’s thinking, success stems from beginner’s luck which is actually a neutral attitude and a hopeful disposition coupled with intense effort and concentration on a task. One is attracted in adolescence and young adulthood by partnering with others to share value and to change values; one may get better or worse values through association. One gets needs met, one generates much energy, and one may have conflict when achieving mastery in one’s profession and presenting one’s ideas. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual, one demonstrates enthusiastic creativity and a need for mental freedom for which one must take any consequences. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; there will often be losses of people and things that one values; however, one exerts much more control on the environment than one may acknowledge, so one does well to admit one’s immense personal power and take full responsibility for situations to prevent unnecessary losses. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences; one discovers that one’s own thinking and communicating interferes with one’s success at times. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate; one learns to speak intimately and honestly with one’s Higher Power and with others.

A♣️ Dreaming and Sleeping Saturn indicates that the purpose of all emotional loss one must endure is for one’s own education. One deeply desires the truth of one’s existence. Fully sated on pleasure, one enters a deep sleep of satisfaction that inures one to the cleansing and nurturing ambrosia of wisdom. Food of the gods often tastes bitter to mortals, but the rewards of knowledge are great. One learns to love with perfect freedom and unconditionality.
