Today on the Eight of Clubs in Cancer, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Moon card in the Waking Spread which is the Jack of Spades. This reading is primarily about the 8♣️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 3/28, 4/26, 5/24, 6/22, 7/20, 8/18, 9/16, 10/14, 11/12, and 12/10.
One comes into this life with a conscious mind and a subconscious mind. These are usually conceptualized as the Waking State and the Dreaming State, but they actually blend all of the time and most especially for Cancers such as the 8♣️ born 6/22 and 7/20. In one’s sub-conscious mind one is driven to satisfy a youthful apprenticeship of excellence in the area of art, business, religion, or other area of attraction.
In early life and pervading one’s conscious thinking; powerful attractions in alignment with personal values drive one to passionate experience. One is attracted in adolescence and young adulthood by the need for a base of operations that permits one to delve into the most intense experiences that can be discovered. One gets needs met, one generates much energy, and one may have conflict through social connectedness and pleasure. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual; one generally succeeds in material concerns, and one is adventurous with investments and enjoyment of all the world has to offer. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; one applies oneself to goals and tasks with great intensity, and intensity can change oneself in fundamental ways. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences; the desire for tangible and intangible success may sometimes appear in significant conflict that one will have to finesse. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate; the desire to accomplish material goals is intense and the thirst for pleasure is also powerful.
The 6♠️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that the 8♣️ is slow to get going on new projects and goals, but once begun momentum steadily builds. Also, habits have a life of their own and will be an obstacle to working with others if not forcefully addressed in a timely and proactive manner.
The 2♠️ Waking Mirror indicates that the 8♣️ intentionally joins with partners for shared activities and goals. In order for cooperation to proceed effectively, all shared work must have a shared benefit.
The K♣️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that the 8♣️ is most naturally on charge of large expansive projects that require a leader that understands every aspect of a plan and is able to direct others in a coordinated manner such that work happens seamlessly with the participation of many individuals with disparate responsibilities.
The architect visualizes the building from the foundation to every flourish, and one takes responsibility for implementing while affirming the army of workers as spiritual beings with whom one will share a human experience while collaborating on the project.
