Today on the 9♣️ 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 9♣️. This reading is about the 9♣️ Birth Card of the following dates: 1/31, 2/29, 3/27, 4/25, 5/23, 6/21, 7/19, 8/17, 9/15, 10/13, 11/11, and 12/9.

The 9♣️ refines, prunes, and renews plans and communications.

The 4♥️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that one needs to ensure progress toward goal fulfillment, and emotional stability is required to make continuous progress without unnecessary interruptions.

The 5♥️ Waking Mirror indicates that one changes feelings and relationships to navigate changing plans and communications. Relationships don’t have to end if they serve one’s purpose. As plans adjust, relationships suddenly are impacted; and one considers how the relationship coexists with new plans. Relationships can change without ending.

As Double Sleeping Neptune, the 9♣️ is learning to allow changes to spontaneously occur in a state of bliss without resistance and without a desire for release and escape.  When one sleeps deeply, there is only intention but no conflict and no effort.

Learn to anticipate changes of plans, so that feelings have a better chance of grounding in advance. Well integrated relationships sustain losses without ruination.
