Today on the A♦️ 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 A♦️. This reading is about 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♦️ initiates and introduces desires and values.

The K♦️ Dreaming/Sleeping Mirror indicates that one needs to initiate and introduce feeling but one is conflicted by unwillingness to share possessions and control of them. One is learning to share value with a partner, and then it is easier to co-create value with a partner also.

The 8♥️ Waking Mirror indicates that one is the source of much value, and one yearns for more value. It take charisma to create, hold, and share value with others. Others sense the emotional strength one wields. It is important to master and control feelings so that they are put to good use.

Many changes to material position come from assertively expressing ideas and plans while working to establish oneself.
