The 6♠️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that one needs to accomplish desires completely with full responsibility and determination out of love, but habits interfere with progress until one begins and daily makes steady effort.

The 2♠️ Waking Mirror indicates that one partners with others to accomplish goals. Others don’t always want to do things the way others say. It is important to let others say how they want to do things. If they are neutral, then they will follow suggestions. Find out what others think, and give them a chance to fully participate, so the creativity of a relationship contributes to overall success.

The K♣️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that one is learning to take responsibility for actions and to honor the needs and wants of others, without ordering them to attempt projects one is unwilling to do oneself. One has the ability to master gigantic projects, but one must know everything including tasks that are unpleasant. Once one has mastered every aspect of a plan, one can easily inspire others to do the work to get things done.

The more love, friendliness, and pleasure that is brought to relationships; the more value will be manifested, discovered, and enjoyed.
