Today on the Nine of Clubs in Cancer, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Moon card in the Waking Spread which is the Jack of Hearts.This reading is primarily about the 9♣️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/31, 2/29, 3/27, 4/25, 5/23, 6/21, 7/19, 8/17, 9/15, 10/13, 11/11, and 12/9.
The 9♣️ develops, refines, perfects, and discards thoughts, plans, and communications. When Unconscious, the desire to limit pain and maximize pleasure leads one to have to work much harder than necessary (due to endless detours); one should accept that suffering is a natural part of progress and prosperity when one takes a direct route to a goal. When Awakened, one endures difficulties as part of steady progress in pursuit of values, and one makes excellent decisions along the way with access to vast internal resources including creativity and courage.
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 9♣️ particularly Cancers born 7/19 there is a need to sacrifice for the sake of love.
In early life and pervading one’s conscious thinking; adjustments must regularly be made as one becomes aware of changing perspectives. One is attracted in adolescence and young adulthood by strong affinities that one garners by full command of situations (that requires great effort) or by securing help from powerful others, but then one is in debt to another. One gets needs met, one generates much energy, and one may have conflict with determined planning and communicating and maintaining charge of of one’s own and others’ feelings. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual, exchange of ideas leads to the best judgment that helps secure values most effectively. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; one fulfills needs most effectively by not taking losses personally, and by sustaining relationships. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences, one works very hard for goals, and one should take time to rest and organize one’s thoughts. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate, shared value and the relationships one has for business and pleasure are a focus as relationships help develop values and one shares values within relationships.
The 4♥️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that the 9♣️ desires harmonious loving relationships, but attachment to personal security and core memories interfere with personal integrity and positive thinking.
The 5♥️ Waking Mirror indicates that the 9♣️ changes feelings and important relationships suddenly. Change of heart works for one when it is based on a real change of mind that leads to peaceful alignment with core values and a generous loving spirit of sharing. However, there is a tendency to change feelings and relationships based on a dissatisfaction and longing for more and better and new and different that is in fact merely self-delusion covering and confusing deep sadness and isolation.
As Double Sleeping Neptune, the 9♣️ needs to explore dreams and the Dream State itself as one is at home in dreams. One has the capacity to wake-up in dreams and become aware of all the obstacles and manoeuvring that is performed in dreams to help the Soul to recognize itself in a body and claim one’s birthright as an eternal being.
Being fixed in one’s ideas helps one achieve values but also interferes with enjoyment of values and relationships.
