Today on the 9♥️ in Capricorn, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Saturn card in the Waking Spread which is 9♦️. This reading is about the 9♥️ Birth Card of 8/30, 9/28, 10/26, 11/24, and 12/22.

The 9♥️ refines, completes, and separates from feelings and love relationships.

Love and family relationships are the entry point to this world for all as we all enter mortal life through relationships in some way. Relationships offer the possibility of pleasure and satisfaction for all of one’s desires, but quite often desires are only partly fulfilled or not at all fulfilled. Some have a special fortune in fulfillment. Others have a special fortune in not having fulfillment or having insufficient fulfillment.

The 9♥️ learns to identify lack of satisfaction in feelings and in relationships, and then to refine expectations. Some 9♥️ are able to find satisfaction through contentment, a state in which one has preferences but one maintains happiness regardless of success achieving desires. Such a 9♥️ continues striving for fulfillment, and appreciating incremental improvements; but also maintaining happiness through the whole process. The 9♥️ that masters this process of gratitude coupled with striving is not subject to depression which hampers others with this card. In fact, one may elevate self-awareness to the point that one becomes a source of comfort and wisdom to others that suffer from their own depression.

Capricorn 9♥️ combines limited satisfaction in the area of relationships with limited satisfaction in the area of personal values and money. There is a need for significant shifts in consciousness from time to time. Travel is a welcome distraction that empowers one with knowledge that supports needed changes.
