Today on the Two 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 Clubs. This reading is primarily about the 2♦️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/25, 2/23, 3/21, 4/19, 5/17, 6/15, 7/13, 8/11, 9/9, 10/7, 11/5, and 12/3.
The 2♦️ relates to others to produce and share values and wealth. When Unconscious, one misrepresents goals due to distrust and the preference to control outcomes even at the expense of equity. When Awakened, one identifies with love as the highest and most worthy value that is to be shared to build and support a life of wisdom.
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 2♦️, particularly a Cancer born 7/13, the need for mental organization and psychic protection should be addressed; when one knows oneself, foreign influences are recognized and more easily addressed.
In early life and pervading one’s conscious thinking; one becomes highly skilled but others do not always see things the same way, so adjustments are needed to make communication effective and helpful. One is attracted in adolescence and young adulthood by expertise and by freedom to make adjustments to thinking. One gets needs met, one generates much energy, and one may have conflict by insisting on continuing to fulfill values and by willingness to do whatsoever it takes to succeed. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual, one works hard and one enjoys the work; mental habits ensure that work is held to a consistent standard. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; discussion with others that takes others’ views into consideration fosters popularity. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences, success may come at the expense of personal relationships. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate; one is willing to focus all of one’s abilities to bring goals to completion.
The 7♠️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that the 2♦️ worries about lost opportunities to meet personal preferences. One thinks one knows better than others, so one keeps secret tangential judgements and opinions so that others will think cooperation is still in effect. One may be unstable in the values one holds. It would be much better to have some open intensity of feeling and discussion that reveal respective boundaries and uncovers hidden agendas of both parties. Secrets are not good when they conceal dissonant agendas for sharing.
3♣️ Waking/Sleeping Mirror indicates that the 2♦️ is most naturally a talker. When ideas are freely shared, solutions that satisfy all parties are discovered and can be put into action. When secrets are held because one worries how they will impact one’s preferences, one ends up having one’s hand forced by changing circumstances.
Tell others what is preferred and what can be offered so that together decisions can be carried out for the common good.
