Today on the 5♦️ 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 5♦️. This reading is about the Birth Card of the following dates: 1/22, 2/20, 3/18, 4/16, 5/14, 6/12, 7/10, 8/8, 9/6, 10/4, and 11/2.

The 5♦️ changes desires in the effort to align values and desires.

The 6♣️ Dreaming/Waking Mirror indicates that one needs to express ideas, develop plans, and form agreements that together help further long held personal ideals. One changes desires that are out of synch with current values; while habit leads one to persist in plans even once one no longer values specific goals. There is an ambivalence with changing plans, and there is stress making changes.

The 10♣️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that one is learning to welcome the endings of desires one has long nurtured, molded, and strived to achieve when the endings are leading to something worthwhile. In order to recognize the relative value of a different course of action, full knowledge provides a broad understanding of options. Full knowledge comes about from a voracious appetite for information. One is learning to be both student and teacher as this educational perspective broadens perspective.

Express ideas that facilitate recognition of cyclical growth.
