Today on the 5♠️ in Aries, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Mars card in the Waking Spread which is the 9♠️. This reading is primarily about the 5♠️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/9, 2/7, 3/5, 4/3, and 5/1.

The 5♠️ changes everything like  a sculptor working with a block of stone that does not conform to internal experience. One struggles to be of comfort and emotional support to all contacts. One does well to build a firm foundation of personal values and desires one is fulfilling for oneself.

The A♣️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that one wants new experiences that help to flesh out personal needs and values. Travel and new relationships open new conceptualization of the world that help one establish a personal world view.

The K♦️ Waking Mirror indicates that one knows exactly what one wants; sometimes one takes without concern for others feelings. Sometimes one discounts the value of others feelings altogether. There can be a disgust with others who act this same self-serving way also. Others seem to serve themselves at the expense of others and without regard. There is a selfishness inherent to all life that must be acknowledged, affirmed, and reconciled with higher values that one is determined to cultivate.

The 6♥️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that one is learning to get personal needs met in existing relationships without compromising personal values. There is a tendency to people please to avoid social disruption, but gradually one realizes others genuinely appreciate one’s real goodness, and their appreciation is not diminished by insisting on meeting personal needs.

In the rush to change everything, one turns the microscope on oneself as well as on the world; stock is taken of strengths and weaknesses, because one has intense desire to live an authentic and fulfilling life.
