Today on the Ten of Diamonds in Gemini, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Mercury card in the Waking Spread which is the Eight of Spades. This reading is primarily about the 10♦️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/17, 2/15, 3/13, 4/11, 5/9, 6/7, 7/5, 8/3, and 9/1.
The 10♦️succeeds in material goals, and one enjoys the materials and values that one maintains. When Unconscious, one indulges in prejudice against disparate ways of living, and one withholds affection from others that are not prospering similar to oneself. When Awakened, one realizes that wealth allows one to practice self-discipline that leads to self-mastery and ultimately one may rise to a special worldly accomplishment rather than only pleasure oneself with the trappings of success.
In early life and pervading one’s thinking during the years from birth to age 12 and all one’s life for those born June 7th and September 1st; one applies oneself to the limit and beyond while applying effort to maintain serenity. One is attracted in adolescence and young adulthood by daring romantic love and sweetness. One gets needs met, one generates much energy, and one may have conflict when doing everything in one’s power to earn and have the things that are desired. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual, one does succeed to acquire one’s values and one also lavishes loved ones with benefits. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; one strives to have more intense experiences of love and one meets new people or encourages partners to behave differently to satisfy oneself. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences, one finds that speaking one’s mind doesn’t always work out well and neither does holding back opinions; so one has to make significant adjustments to one’s own needs. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate; one learns to follow one’s own heart in all of one’s activities.
The 6♥️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that the 10♦️may allow prejudices that arise from family, culture, and religion to inhibit efforts to enjoy the environment and to turn potential benefits in the environment to one’s advantage. One needs to let go of any limiting beliefs, because that is merely delusion. Once free, one quickly moves to produce and enjoy the inherent value in one’s life experience.
As Double Waking Jupiter, the 10♦️benefits from the philosophy of fortune. One is often born into an environment that supports material growth, and one often identifies with philosophies of material abundance that together support prosperity.
The 9♠️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that the 10♦️lets go of any obstacle that might hinder rapid success. If one must let go of something difficult, it is recommended that one work out issues with one’s father as part of the preparation, as the father loves as a disciplinarian with rules and structure. Once one puts a new structure in place, progress accelerates and gains momentum.
Enjoy the gifts that have been received and more will be given.
