Seven of Diamonds / King of Diamonds Saturn Card
I´ve been reading a couple of Seven of Diamonds spread lately. Nice and very spiritual people!
But the 7th card position in that spread gives me grey hair. It resonates so strongely with their Birth Card; a King in the 7th position obviously resonates strongly in it´s innate 7 quality. According to Carmina on youtube it has to do with being generous, sharing wealth etc, but that doesn´t capture the Saturn meaning I believe; there should be something saying "don´t" or "this is not for you" there. Any ideas, experiences, anyone? A kinglike attitude towards longterm sacrifices and suffering, basically a stoic character, that I believe, but apart from that?
The 7 of Diamonds is my 7 year progression card, so it gives me grey hairs in general Haha I think the King of Diamonds Saturn card can hold a connotation of sacrificing steady work or at best, long stints of unemployment, or delays in finding steady income or work. Struggling to support yourself financially, and not being able to hold a steady long-term job is somewhat fitting since it's the 7 of Diamonds (financial failures). It can also mean a delay in finding a career or profession in which you become specialized or expert in. Or perhaps choosing a profession where you choose to make financial sacrifices and there is an in-balance between your income and personal expenses.
Its a card of sacrifice. Any person born with a 7 birth card will make sacrifices of themselves somewhere, but these sacrifices help them get ahead, as a proper sacrifice should. So its their ability to let go, give something up, and then they end up with more. The saturn card shows their ability to do this. at the 7, what we let go of is let go of cause its over, once its let go of, the space opens up for something else to come in. If we try to hold onto it, whatever we hold onto just becomes a space safer but offers nothing that is really needed.
As a 5 of Clubs I´ve got it on my Mercury card, and it´s interesting to see how the two cards - 7D and KD - work together in that spread too.
4th position: worldly matters not working out
11th position: King of Diamond making it easy to sacrifice worldly matters. (But also an indication of a strong and independent value system, I believe.)
The 7 of diamonds is my birth card (I think so) although I know nothing else about the cards. I can say yes it's been all about sacrificing and letting go. In fact I feel so happy letting go.
As Ernst says, when I let go, things actually work better but in time and I get to realize it much later on and not at the time of sacrifice.
As you put it out, you can say I am stoic - taking a royal approach to suffering lol.
