Today on the 8♦️ in Capricorn, we find the Planetary Ruling Card by counting to the Saturn card in the Waking Spread which is 10♠️. This reading is about the 8♦️ Birth Card of 1/19, 2/17, 3/15, 4/13, 5/11, 6/9, 7/7, 8/5, 9/3, and 10/1.
The 8♦️ recognizes intense ambition for life experience, one concentrates and directs efforts toward materializing values, and gradually one accumulates value to serve whatever goals one may identify as highest and best.
The A♠️ Dreaming Mirror indicates that one needs to recognize right communication and philosophy from wrong to be able to fully accept the depth and power of personal desires. Getting one’s way without repercussions is not justification.
As Waking Jupiter Crown, one succeeds so much in one’s desires that there is often the acceptance that one is finished and need not struggle further. All the past effort and current desire combine to create lasting success.
The Q♦️ Sleeping Mirror indicates that one is learning to foster self-mastery, self-restraint, and self-discipline to develop the requisite maturity for becoming altruistic in nature. One will easily prosper in this life, but thinking of the welfare of others and using personal power selflessly takes much dedication.
Capricorn 8♦️ works with endless effort, energy, and time to successfully realize one’s own best; and suddenly one realizes a truth that is vastly different than previous goals. One is moved to make a significant change, and this process repeats throughout one’s life.
