Today on the Eight of Diamonds in Cancer, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Moon card in the Waking Spread which is the Ten of Clubs. This reading is primarily about the 8♦️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/19, 2/17, 3/15, 4/13, 5/11, 6/9, 7/7, 8/5, 9/3, and 10/1.
The 8♦️ concentrates value and valuables. When Unconscious, one attempts to achieve self mastery that is measured by wealth and privilege, and one develops prejudices toward those perceived less successful and reinforce a pattern of withholding love from undesirable and undeserving peers. When Awakened, one identifies a foundation living that one establishes with work and a neutral perspective of one’s relative accomplishments, and one dedicates oneself to learning and teaching with humility.
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. In the subconscious mind of the 10♣️ particularly when born 7/7, one is drawn to successful planning and communicating.
In early life and pervading one’s conscious thinking; anything can be accomplished and others will help if one wants them to help. One is attracted in adolescence and young adulthood by cheerfulness, but everyone has their own agenda and each situation is different. One gets needs met, one generates much energy, and one may have conflict through curiosity; one tries many things. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual, one is intuitive and successful. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; one learns to establish serenity before working to exhaustion. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences, one insists on philosophical freedom that is daily challenged by one’s sense of compassion. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate; one dedicates oneself to developing and sharing value.
The A♠️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that the 8♦️can recognize powerful value once one stops looking outside of oneself for clues to oneself. The outside world is less important to self discovery than the inside world. It is the inside world that contains the inherent value one needs to discover.
As Waking Jupiter Crown, one will shine in some way even if that is a mundane gathering of wealth that one uses to get one’s worldly desires met and exceeded.
The Q♦️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that the 8♦️gathers wealth most effectively for the purpose of sharing it which is experienced as a loss but is really an exchange of one value for another that one discovers by exploring ideas in free expression with others.
Material wealth is a guidepost on a journey to a spiritual foundation.
