Today on the A♦️ in Gemini, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Mercury card in the Waking Spread which is the Q♦️. This reading is primarily about the A♦️ which is the Birth Card of the following dates:  1/26, 2/24, 3/22, 4/20, 5/18, 6/16, 7/14, 8/12, 9/10, 10/8, 11/6, and 12/4.

The A♦️ discovers and introduces value. Sharing values is potentially difficult, and the solution is making love one’s preferred and preeminent value.

The K♦️ Dreaming/Sleeping Mirror leads you to recognize that you have the abilities to master the material world such that you lack no pleasure and you have everything that you need. However, there is constantly the need for giving and receiving love. Love may be lost in the struggle for material success. Money truly cannot buy love. You are learning that this giving and receiving love is the preferred value in your life, and you are discovering that it only arises out of cooperative co-creative and sharing situations. It is easiest to achieve a healthy partnership when both have vital components of the relationship to contribute. When there is significant imbalance in power in a relationship, there is difficulty sustaining a cooperative effort toward loving sharing and mutual enjoyment.

The 8♥️ Waking Mirror leads you to reserve, concentrate, and direct feelings in your efforts to discover and introduce value and desires. In your zeal to gather and accumulate desires, you may exert emotional control over others. Beware the blowback of manipulation. It is also possible for you to direct emotional energy inward in spiritual, rejuvenating, and uplifting ways. You can discover the source of all pleasure within.

You want much and you give much. In between these two functions is a being of deep feeling that is protective of self and of others.
