Today on the 8♦️ in Taurus, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Venus card in the Waking Spread which is the 3♥️. This reading is primarily about the 8♦️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates:  1/19, 2/17, 3/15, 4/13, 5/11, 6/9, 7/7, 8/5, 9/3, and 10/1.

The 8♦️ reserves, concentrates, and directs values. One struggles to exercise discipline and leadership including the willingness to perform mundane and dull activities that feel insulting or offensive to personal dignity so long as the efforts are leading to fulfillment of goals. One does well to regard all ideas and beliefs of self and others with neutrality.

The A♠️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that one wants to experience great and miraculous things, but in order to succeed one must tread lightly and carefully without developing attachment to success. Attachment is a killer because it quickly creates depression when success and satisfaction are not immediately provided.

As Waking Jupiter Crown, the 8♦️ can use philosophy to fulfill desires. One actually has a key to the miracles of the soul through a personal philosophy that is a spiritual or divine connection. One establishes a goal, and one identifies the philosophical assistance one needs to accomplish the goal; and then, as one works toward the goal the philosophy is strengthened and one is carried to success.

The Q♦️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that one is learning to value generosity and interest in the needs and wants of others. One has had to exercise great personal deprivation in order to succeed, so one understands suffering and one is learning to help others that have strong desires but need some help to meet their needs along the way.

With a cheerful generous heart, one who has accomplished much is able to seize fortune that others fail to immediately recognize.
