Today on the Five of Diamonds in Cancer, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Moon card in the Waking Spread which is the Seven of Clubs. This reading is primarily about the 5♦️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/22, 2/20, 3/18, 4/16, 5/14, 6/12, 7/10, 8/8, 9/6, 10/4, and 11/2.
The 5♦️ changes values as circumstances change and perceptions receive new information that indicates the need for adjustments. When Unconscious, one resists the need for changes that are indicated as one fears loss of status including cultural, religious, financial, and family relationships. When Awakened, one expresses ideas and plans freely and spontaneously that produce grounded wisdom that confronts all taboos with knowledge and reveals a healing effulgence.
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 5♦️ and particularly born 7/10 one is challenged to pay attention to thoughts and communication to ensure neutral positions that promote mental balance and equanimity.
In early life and pervading one’s conscious thinking; the desires for value and wealth are coupled with the need for self-mastery and self-denial. One is attracted in adolescence and young adulthood by concentrated intelligence through education and scholarship. One gets needs met, one generates much energy, and one may have conflict meeting new people that introduce the need to let old values dissipate. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual; the intense desire for life and experience is grounded and shaped by the obstacles and restrictions that life presents. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; exchanges of ideas pose the opportunity to discover pleasures one may desire and work to attain. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences; one does well to let authoritative sources shape one’s views and values. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate, creative experience of life encourages dramatic and lasting changes in personal values.
The 6♣️ Dreaming/Waking Mirrors indicate that the 5♦️does not change values easily as one holds values tightly and with force and conviction. Consideration of the impact one’s values have on others is the main lever one activates to change intention in any matter. Once one begins a significant change, there is often massive fallout due to the initial resistance and lack of material preparation.
The 10♣️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that the 5♦️ has already gathered countless items of data that would be needed to implement rapid change of values. One absolutely knows what to do to make significant changes in one’s daily life at any moment. One knows all the consequences of changes. One knows all the details that will effect the changes. One knows the impact on one’s security and spiritual foundation. One simply makes a slight shift in one’s posture, and all the micro-adjustments fall seamlessly into place.
Rooted to one’s material position in prosperity or deprivation, one will not sense the opportunities for connectedness with others until one is willing to separate from the past.
