Today on the 7♦️ in Leo, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Sun card in the Waking Spread which is itself. This date is called the Double 7♦️. This reading is about 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♦️ seeks balance between pleasure and pain. Everyone bears the dilemma of balance between needs and wants, but some feel this more acutely. One has intense desires that are often blocked, or they come with a heavy price.

Desires often interfere with relationships, or relationships interfere with desires. In fact, seeking balance between relationships and personal desires can be key to both. Relationships are passionate but usually have some serious obstacles. Life is so trying that one thinks that continual change in circumstances and relationships may be the key to all turmoil. It is useful to remember that not every relationship is destined to last a long time, though each is blessed and productive of a specific type of personal unshackling of torments that cause suffering.

So, is the 7♦️ leading a life more subject to suffering than others? It may feel that way to the individual. What is happening is the construction of an increasingly sturdy foundation in oneself. One matures to mastery of desires and love relationships. This path could never be easy for anyone. There is peace and serenity on the path and down the road.
