Today on the 9♥️ in Virgo, we find the Planetary Ruling Cards by counting to the Mercury cards in the Waking Spread which are the 7♣️/8♠️. This reading is primarily about the 9♥️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 8/30, 9/28, 10/26, 11/24, and 12/22.
The 9♥️ evaluates, refines, and adapts feelings in relationships. This card has been called the wish card, and the card of disappointment. When Unconscious, one desires more than is reasonable given the likely circumstances, and thus sadness is emphasized. When Awakened, one realizes gratitude in all experience as needs are met and some desires are also fulfilled.
This card is the most mature of the deck and incremental steps in maturity come as one seeks to gain desires but one is often stifled even though demonstrating the fiercest resistance. The more one desires the greater disappointment one experiences.
It is best that relationships be explored for the most subtle pleasures, as often specific desires are selfish in nature. Sharing ideas to elicit a partner’s cherished values enables one to be of service in relationships, and one deepens real intimacy. When relationships suddenly end one recognizes that actually the relationship was more important than any particular detail, so a concerted effort to honor the relationship should be entertained during its life.
