Today on the 4♠️ in Aries, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Mars card in the Waking Spread which is the 8♠️. This reading is primarily about the 8♠️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/10, 2/8, 3/6, 4/4, and 5/2.

The 4♠️ builds a holistic foundation for living. One struggles to gather useful information to help guide efforts. One does well to establish firm feelings and relationships including a strong family life.

The 7♥️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that one wants to maintain clear emotional boundaries with others. Boundaries help to develop and maintain firm feelings and relationships. Boundaries also help relationships to be respectful of self and other.

The J♥️ Waking Mirror indicates that one offers love and passion spontaneously and sometimes recklessly in a way that can interfere with efforts to build a grounded life. It is wonderful to be so passionate unless passion becomes an obstacle to happiness.

As Sleeping Mars Crown, one is learning to work aggressively for what one wants. There is a tendency to postpone effort until sufficient training, knowledge, or experience has been gathered. One does not need to wait to get started, and gradually one learns that intense effort is needed in the beginning of any enterprise more than in the middle of it; the initial effort is of utmost importance.

One works with great effort and one builds on efforts to develop and accumulate wealth which manifests as financial strength and also as firm and generous values.
