The 8♠️ Dreaming Mirror Indicates that one wants to work very hard to ensure the best results of all exchange of values that are needed. If a loss can be minimized, or if a gain can be increased, one will take whatever extra steps are needed to ensure the benefit.

The J♠️ Waking Mirror indicates that one is tempted to cut corners when faced with potential loss of material or other values. It is best that one embrace a universal relationship with community prosperity so that another person’s gain at one’s own expense is viewed as sharing rather than personal loss.

The 4♣️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that one is learning to build calm structured thinking in regard to accumulated wealth and how the wealth is spent for prosperous living.

Sharing ideas and learning what makes others appreciate life enables a broader perspective in which success of others is one’s own success.
