Today is the Joker in Capricorn, with no Birthcard and no Planetary Ruling Card. This reading is about the Joker of 12/31.

The Joker is most similar to the Jacks of every suit as the Joker is creative and youthful. The Joker born before Noon is also like the A♥️, while the Joker born after Noon is like the K♠️. In these ways, the creative and irreverent Joker follows one’s heart or follows one’s determination to experience what life will offer.

The Joker is not read by the cards.
