Today on the 8♦️ in Gemini, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Mercury card in the Waking Spread which is the K♠️. 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, directs, and masters values and desire fulfillment.

The A♠️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that one has deep yearnings for experience that one can fulfill only by keeping a neutral mindset. You have to not want relationships, wealth, career, and mystical experience with such intensity in order to achieve these experiences. Wanting things so much is unbalancing. It is recommended that you instead practice a type of contentment in which you affirm that you already have the experiences that you desire and you are therefore happy. You have to work with yourself by both affirming the validity of your desires, and also affirming that in the most intense spiritual experience, there is no such thing as time and space that separate one from objects of desire. This affirmation of already having achieved and simultaneously wanting creates a beautiful experience of wanting what you have while continuing to strive for desires.

As Waking Jupiter Crown, you have the ability to identify completely with the Soul level of existence. You are a monistic being in which you have God within rather than outside of yourself. You do not seek God; you feel God, you speak God, and you act God. As you live a life that manifests God, all your most cherished desires are fulfilled.

The Q♦️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that you are learning to nurture desires while encouraging the dutiful, arduous, and persevering effort that brings desires to fulfillment. You will feel like a slave to your own desires, and you will think that you are being used by some outside forces. You will gradually see your own desires fulfilled, and your concern about being abused will gradually recede.

As you take complete responsibility for the fulfillment of desires, you do everything within your power to plan and implement the achievement of your desires.
