Today on the Four of Diamonds in Leo, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Sun card in the Waking Spread which is also the 4♦️; so Leos born on 8/9 are considered Double 4♦️. 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 foundation of values including wealth. When Unconscious, all kinds of changes are desired that require much help from others and creative machinations to implement them. When Awakened, adjustments are made to thoughts and feelings that enable peacefulness and longevity of existing relationships.

In early life and pervading one’s conscious thinking; one forms friendships in which one thinks one must persuade the other to participate. As one matures through obstacles, delays, and struggles; pleasures overwhelm the senses and are quickly removed; one must learn to accept their transient nature. As one ages and becomes aware of inconsistencies between opinions and experiences, one realizes all the most pertinent facts in personal experience, but one still insists on gathering data at great expense and suffering especially in love relationships.

The Q♥️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that the 4♦️is willing to work extensively to accommodate pleasures and nurturing needs.

The 2♥️ Waking Mirror indicates that the 4♦️easily becomes infatuated with difficult partners. One learns much in these relationships, but it is not easy.

The 7♠️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that the 4♦️is regularly stifled and one gradually recognizes obstacles as blessings. One learns to accept boundaries, secrets, and rules that others follow which one must also respect to be in harmony with them.

All the teachers declare that personal and intimate relationship is where spiritual practice is most acute.
