Today on the Three of Diamonds in Cancer, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Moon card in the Waking Spread which is the Five of Clubs. This reading is primarily about the 3♦️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/24, 2/22, 3/20, 4/18, 5/16, 6/14, 7/12, 8/10, 9/8, 10/6, 11/4, and 12/2.
The 3♦️develops personal values and wealth. When Unconscious, one considers the needs of associates including family and lover such that anxiety is provoked and one abandons personal goals with a falsely perceived change of heart regarding authentic goals. When Awakened, Universal values and one own values come into alignment as one willingly loses anything one considers a personal possession (including loved ones) in pursuit of honesty, integrity, and generosity.
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 3♦️, and particularly for the 7/12 Cancer, there is a need for mental freedom that must be affirmed no matter how comfortable one thinks one is in current circumstances.
In early life and pervading one’s conscious thinking; strong desires produce habits almost immediately. One is attracted in adolescence and young adulthood by relationships in which at least one party is the leader that decides most activities and the rules. One gets needs met, one generates much energy, and one may have conflict addressing limited resources with an open mind. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual, new love relationships coincide with massive personal makeovers. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; youthful indiscretions are punished, and one learns to yolk oneself to a teacher or a teaching to avoid difficulties. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences, personal development is made apparent with irritants; let an itch be a guide to growth. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate; personal development is a mystical experience that engrosses even as it may demand full commitment.
The 5♥️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that the 3♦️will feel compelled to meet new people as well as to sever existing relationships. Meeting new people serves the purpose of helping one solidify positive changes from growth in personal values. Holding on too toghtly to tired relationships may keep one ensnared in outmoded ways of living.
The Q♠️ Waking Mirror indicates that the 3♦️ puts much consideration into one’s relative prosperity. One has significant difficulty comparing one’s personal values to those of others. It is much more productive to advance one’s own values without regard for others’ opinions.
As Double Sleeping Mars, the 3♦️ is capable of leading a spiritual life such that new difficult karma is not created, and instead one performs one’s duties and responsibilities without resentment.
Love is welcome and needed and love is demanding of oneself; one is required to give that which one prefers to maintain.
