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

The 7♦️ balances values. This card is a key to the deck as one of three cards with no mirror; it is a stopping point. However, it does have a twin card, the 9♥️, with whom it shares qualities of experience. The 9♥️ feels loss of people and things very acutely. Both cards are intertwined in meaning and significance. Together they define all of human experience:  yearning, obstacle, disappointment, and fulfillment.

The most important thing for you to know is that you experience pleasure more intensely than others, and when pleasure is denied or obstructed, you feel it’s absence more acutely than others feel it. Still, there is a more subtle element involved, which is that you are more alive in your body than others. And at the same time, you feel that you are alien to your body. Your life is both physical and non-physical. When desires are fulfilled, you are sensual in orientation. When desires are denied, your yearning becomes spiritual.

There are difficult sensitive lessons in this life that cause you to withdraw, concentrate, and direct knowledge in communication and agreements. You can grow extremely Iintellectual and wise as you seek to fulfill desires in a healthy spiritual manner.

Yearning is most intense when boundaries of self and others are accorded the greatest emphasis regardless of the intensity of yearning.
