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: 1/22, 2/20, 3/18, 4/16, 5/14, 6/12, 7/10, 8/8, 9/6, 10/4, and 11/2.

The 5♦️changes values including exchanges of valuables. One struggles to refine values as dictated by environmental pressures. One does well to discuss plans with others that have ideas one can use to help adjust values in a productive manner.

The 6♣️ Dreaming/Waking Mirror indicates that one wants to persist in plans and agreements, but communication with others often leads to the need to make changes to existing plans and agreements. One prefers to carry out plans and agreements anyway, but there will be significant strain placed on oneself and others when situations indicate the need for major changes if one does not go ahead and make changes to what one hopes to accomplish.

The 10♣️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that one is learning to understand the big picture in all activities and plans in one’s life so that it becomes easier and more natural to think outside of a box. Refinement of values are needed when goals and desires are no longer reasonable or necessary. When one knows multiple options and alternatives, it is easier to choose one or more of them rather sticking to the old plans.

Changes to values including losses can feel like the end of the world when it is also the beginning of a whole new mindset.
