Today on the 8♣️ in Libra, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Venus card in the Waking Spread which is 4♠️. This reading is about the 8♣️ Birth Card of 3/28, 4/26, 5/24, 6/22, 7/20, 8/18, 9/16, 10/14, 11/12, and 12/10.

The 8♣️ is an idealistic actor who conserves, concentrates, and directs powerful ideas into strategies and plans.

The 6♠️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that one needs to consider each detail but one also needs to begin working. There is a middle ground between excessive caution and recklessness that must be addressed.

The 2♠️ Waking Mirror indicates that co-creative partners are a must for all endeavors. It is vital to know every inch of the process, but talented others bring their own essential energy. These partners will not share the effort without being partners with some equity. And projects will not be completed without their participation.

The K♣️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that one is learning to treat one’s work as substantial rather than as something one has already mastered. In fact if one’s work is too easy, one needs bigger more difficult work. What bigger necessary projects can be addressed? Take charge of those and get busy. It is supposed to be a challenge, as that is where one’s best work will be done.

The Libran 8♣️ can become masterful and completely dedicated to some life’s work. But first, there are some areas that need to be addressed such as establishing a personal foundation of life as well as recognizing personal ambitions. If self esteem is not strong and firm, the risk of dissipation and despair is high as ambition is strong.
