The 9♣️ refines, completes, discards, and renews ideals, plans, and communications.

The 4♥️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that one needs to persevere with long held values with an eye on future prosperity that will support harmonious relationships. In the immediate present, one must insist that relationships difficulty does not interfere with progress one is working so diligently to deliver.

The 5♥️ Waking Mirror indicates that changes of feeling and changing relationships are a likely situation on a daily basis. One runs hot and ready for battle especially if a partner is antagonistic. Relationships need not be so brittle however. Adjustments to plans, agreements, and communicating may be part of the solution in many situations.

As Double Sleeping Neptune, the 9♣️ is learning to take time to enjoy pleasures and also time to nurture others when they show distress. Part of the path is demonstrating that solution is answer to any problem. Solution is so much more obvious when one prefers nurture over conflict.

Sagittarius 9♣️ accomplishes any material goal that is important and treasured. Keeping an open mind, and remaining open to others’ points of view protects from much heartache.
