Today on the Five of Clubs in Cancer or Leo, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Moon card in the Waking Spread for Cancer which is the Ten of Spades and for Leo, the Ruling Card is also the 5♣️, as the Sun is the ruling planet of Leo and the Birthcard is also the Sun card. This reading is primarily about the 5♣️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 3/31, 4/29, 5/27, 6/25, 7/23, 8/21, 9/19, 10/17, 11/15, and 12/13.
The 5♣️ changes ideas, planning, and communicating. When Unconscious, changing feelings override conscious planning and communicating, which result in radical behaviour changes as one thinks only of personal needs and desires while discounting the personal connections one holds. When Awakened, one pauses when agitated and one considers many facets of a situation including the beneficial relationships that are intertwined with one’s own actions; and one makes decisions with values that honor the needs of many rather than just the self.
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♣️ particulay Cancers born 6/25 and 7/23 one is driven work with seemingly endless energy to manifest cherished goals.
Leo born 5♣️ 7/23 and 8/21 also have this endless energy to work for cherished goals, but they identify less profoundly with this desire to manifest goals; Leo 5♣️ identify primarily with the conscious need for freedom.
In early life and pervading one’s conscious thinking; one develops resources sometimes as a leader, and sometimes with heightened awareness that one is a follower. One is attracted in adolescence and young adulthood by work and intensity of experience including discovery that collectively influence tightly held plans and ideas. One gets needs met, one generates much energy, and one may have conflict in conversation in which emotional boundaries are explored. In mid-life and when leading a life balancing the material and spiritual, personal values are balanced with personal emotional baggage, and the feelings of others. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; one often needs to make radical changes, but others must not be manipulated. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences, one’s compassion for others and for oneself leads one to question personal integrity when one considers abandoning a collaborative project. In old age and as one retires to contemplate, pray, and meditate; one learns that fully explaining personal motives and fully hearing others’ thoughts and feelings about one’s own behavior is part of one’s integrity when one acts in ways that significantly impact others’ lives.
The J♣️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that the 5♣️ creatively and sometimes recklessly makes changes to planning and communicating group goals. Usually what happens is that one senses that resources are being used inappropriately or that profit is being left on the table, and one hesitates to follow one’s gut. Quite often the hesitation allows the activity to become set in a groove to which others have grown accustomed. Then, one hopes to maintain the effort without change or interruption; and so do all of one’s collaborators. But one reaches a breaking point of no return. One begins to lay down the law to others about how things have changed and how the status quo has been uprooted. Others will not see it crystal clear in this manner; they will argue. Each objection must be sincerely heard and co-mingled with one’s own creativity. If any objection has not been conscientiously considered, it must be thoroughly fleshed into transparency. Every member of the team must feel fully respected and cherished before actions are taken to move forward for the greatest cohesion.
The Q♦️ Waking Mirror indicates that the 5♣️ spends much time thinking about how to use resources. One sometimes is primarily self-obsessed and sometimes one primarily thinks of others offering help without regret or delay.
The 6♦️Sleeping Mirror indicates that the 5♣️ has the ability to maintain absolute freedom without abandoning heartfelt connections to people and to personal goals. One may think that one’s nonconformist approach to shared activities will be an automatic deal-breaker with collaborators, however one has the capacity to engage others as though in a collective hug that affirms the belongingness of all others. It is easiest to perform this feat of collective social magic when there is no pause between forward direction and a sharp turn or reversal. Make the changes that are required, address the confusion that arises with facts and details that led to the change, affirm hurt feelings others may bear, and explain that the change was not desired but simply manifested through the situation.
Non-conformity requires tact and graciousness.
