Today on the 6♦️ in Taurus, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Venus card in the Waking Spread which is the 10♥️. This reading is primarily about the 6♦️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates:  1/21, 2/19, 3/17, 4/15, 5/13, 6/11, 7/9, 8/7, 9/5, 10/3, and 11/1.

The 6♦️ persists making efforts to derive value in specific ways. One struggles to refine philosophies, plans, agreements, and ways of communicating. One does well to be in the rhythm of life, going where one’s own instincts goes without reservation or hesitation.

The K♣️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that one wants to be in complete command of plans and communications, but this control can be a burden when a spontaneous response to life is most helpful. On the other hand, one is wise through experience and knowledge, so excellent decisions can be made when the path widens or narrows and opportunities are presented or removed.

The 10♠️ Waking Mirror indicates that one works long and hard to bear fruit with cherished values. One is a diligent worker, so one should ensure that the goals to which one brings so much effort and discipline are worthwhile.

The 5♣️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that one is learning to make sudden opportunistic changes to mental outlook, plans, agreements, and ways of communicating. There is a push- pull between the need to use gentleness in communication and the need for sudden change when appropriate.

Go with the flow while being kind and loving to others and also to oneself; one’s destined and most cherished values will bear fruit.
