Today on the Seven of Diamonds in Gemini, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Mercury card in the Waking Spread which is the Five of Spades. This reading is primarily about the 7♦️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/20, 2/18, 3/16, 4/14, 5/12, 6/10, 7/8, 8/6, 9/4, and 10/2.
The 7♦️ balances values including the acquisition, enjoyment, and loss of values and valuables. The card of poverty has also brought forth immense wealth, and so often the two extremes of material wealth are intrinsically connected. The search for value, wealth, and social power are a great part of striving in those that consider themselves upwardly mobile. Increases in status and power lead to unexpected temptations for abuse of power that may become a conflict as one seeks to balance values.
The flip side of addressing values and valuables in one’s life is the human relationships that are impacted by one’s values. Greed leads to folks getting hurt and one is the perpetrator. Similarly, if one is in poverty, one will be a likely victim in society. As one does create balance with values, relationships tend to be more balanced as well. It is very difficult for relationships that cross status to thrive as individuals in the relationship receive very dissonant types of support from family and friends. People outside the relationship will also resist the relationship.
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 10th and September 4th; one desires for a much different life than currently lived; re-shuffle and re-deal. One is attracted in adolescence and young adulthood by romantic daring love and firm values that include treasure. One gets needs met, one generates much energy, and one may have conflict with creative expression of ideas that often includes working out ideas in aggressive discussion. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual; one gives up everything to which one has cleaved in order to make a clean break from old emotional patterns and meet someone or something completely new. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; one does all the work needed to cultivate a love relationship; if one does not do the work, love will suffer. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences; one realizes that love and values have always been on a collision course in one’s life; in order to find the balance one surrenders to all the incompatible situations as inevitable. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate; one realizes that spiritual, artistic, sweet, sublime, and mystical are all the experiences that one strives to have with one’s values and valuables.
Relationships are to be treasured but they are not be kept unless they are growing and evolving as a living being; so love and love and love.
