Today on the Ace of Diamonds in Gemini, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Mercury card in the Waking Spread which is the Queen of Diamonds. This reading is primarily about the A♦️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/26, 2/24, 3/22, 4/20, 5/18, 6/16, 7/14, 8/12, 9/10, 10/8, 11/6, and 12/4.
The A♦️ desires value and one wants things one’s own way. When Unconscious, one is willing to force others to assist one to receive the values one desires. When Awakened, one expresses love generously to all as part of one’s desire to identify with love and feeling.
In early life and pervading one’s thinking from birth to age 12 and all one’s life for those born June 16th and September 10th; planning how to acquire and use value leads to the increasing desire for happiness and wealth. One is attracted in adolescence and young adulthood by freedom to form relationships that are exciting, intimate, and also not confining. One gets needs met, one generates much energy, and one may have conflict expressing the need for the most profound experiences that often impinge on others’ boundaries. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual, one learns to follow one’s gut and one’s heart to the pleasures and nurture that one seeks to receive. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; one must let go of victimhood and become the type of adventurer that is open to all manner of experience including disappointment, longing, and sorrow with the solid trust that adventures lead to treasures. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences, one learns to use one’s life philosophy on a daily level to assist with transmutation of values that have stubbornly resisted change through willpower. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate, many values held dear do begin to change and one is willing to let values evolve with less resistance.
The K♦️ Dreaming/Sleeping Mirror indicates that the A♦️ worries about poverty and betrayal. One is prone to worry about relationships and trust. Thus, it is imperative that one speak truth with others so one’s heart is relieved of the burden of suppressed feelings and needs. One has a natural inclination to lead a balanced life that induces a continuous state of bliss. This balanced living is possible by ensuring that needs are met and wants are kept somewhat restrained. Wants can run rampant and lead one to havoc. One controls wants by restraint. One does not deny wants as one will rebel. But one directs oneself to service work once needs are met. Service work occupies time and energy. One has less time for desires that reek havoc. This substitution of behavior is called replacement therapy.
The 8♥️ Waking Mirror indicates that the A♦️ is able to respect others’ feelings when one chooses, but there is a tendency to demand preferred values from others. There are likely power struggles. One should of course use one’s powerful charisma for healing work on oneself and others as one is gifted. One is capable of using feeling to uncover one’s own secrets and those of others in such a way that a powerful release of energy becomes available. This outcome is only available when conflict is not made the focus by power struggles.
Balanced living in which needs and wants are viewed as separate parts of value allows for joy to become predominate.
