Today on the 9♦️ in Aries, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Mars card in the Waking Spread which is the K♣️. This reading is primarily about the 9♦️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/18, 2/16, 3/14, 4/12, 5/10, 6/8, 7/6, 8/4, and 9/2.

The 9♦️ refines, matures, and eliminates values including wealth just as the season of growth culminates in harvesting followed by ploughing for new planting. One struggles to nurture emerging community values including that of family to foster improvement and satisfaction. One does well to change values including taking on new views, new philosophies, new attitudes,  new business, and new assets.

The 8♠️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that one wants to employ massive resistance to needed changes, when in fact necessary change in values must first be acknowledged and embraced; then massive effort can be productively applied to implement change in such a way that loss leads to new growth.

The J♠️ Waking Mirror indicates that one emulates success. There is a tendency to believe that the past success is always predictive of the future, but this is not assured. One emulates success, and thereby one becomes successful. Then, one needs to continue studying on one’s own with dedicated effort to see how success is nurtured and sustained.

The 4♣️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that one is learning to gain awareness and settle thinking and planning in the area of values and wealth accumulation and management. Calming the mind to bedrock bottom is the method one gradually employs to lead wisely in the areas of values.

One is a natural leader when values must change. The mantle of leadership must still be earned by mastering all available knowledge and wisdom to guide one’s community toward right action, so that all incurred losses are required and not unnecessary.
