Today on the Four of Diamonds in Cancer, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Moon card in the Waking Spread which is the Four of Hearts. This reading is primarily about the 4♦️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/23, 2/21, 3/19, 4/17, 5/15, 6/13, 7/11, 8/9, 9/7, 10/5, 11/3, and 12/1.
The 4♦️ builds a life of value through appreciation and cultivation of worthy intangibles and through a financial foundation. When Unconscious, one needs complete satisfaction without effort or consequences lest one demand sudden and complete upheaval of the status quo. When Awakened, one recognizes oneself as a restless spirit-in-a-body that is dissatisfied with the way things are, and one insists on space and time to change relationships and associations on the path of peacefulness that gradually facilitates lasting relationships.
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 4♦️, particularly one born 7/11, values manifest through harmonious relationships including family.
In early life and pervading one’s conscious thinking; creativity and partnership are expected to be sufficient for accomplishing all goals. One is attracted in adolescence and young adulthood by personal and social charisma that encourages draws others close, but one often separates from others when one feels the interaction does not lead to personal success. One gets needs met, one generates much energy, and one may have conflict when striving to create personal security; verbal integrity is essential to avoid the most serious problems. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual; one makes excellent business and values decisions; fortuitous life-changing events may happen. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; the desire for pleasure is actually one’s most difficult objectives; personal satisfaction usually causes more trouble. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences, curiosity, study, and teaching are rich sources of success. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate; willingness to sacrifice for ideals may lead to worldly success.
The Q♥️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that the 4♦️is primarily obsessed with personal pleasure and security for which one is willing to expend great effort and energy. Establishing a more subtle experience of security and more refined sense of pleasure is key to building a foundation of values that permit one to become a fountain of joy and nurturance.
The 2♥️ Waking Mirror indicates that the 4♦️learns most of life’s lessons through romantic experiences. Each new romance expands one’s perceptions of life a little more.
The 7♠️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that the 4♦️is growing to identify self as a spiritual being. As one accepts one’s physical body and all the limitations of life in a body, one gradually respects the needs and wants of other bodies also. Over time, the mysterious thing called life unfolds its secrets.
As a lover one learns about the other, the world, and oneself; personal circumstances are temporal and do not define one’s love for life.
