Ptah is a fixed sign. It indicates a stabilising effect. The condition it refers to doesn’t necessarily need to change.
At the spiritual level, Ptah represents the construction of a person’s ‘spiritual temple’. Which is a bit of a dramatic way of saying that this is a step in your partner’s life path. Every one of our experiences contributes to our evolution and path back to our creator.
If Ptah has appeared for your partner, it’s possible that they are looking for some kind of solution to a problem. Do they need to use their ingenuity or inventiveness to solve a conundrum? Or are they looking for someone who can help them produce some kind of desired result? If they are, then whatever your partner’s idea is, don’t dismiss it before looking at the practicalities of bringing it to fruition.
Ptah’s energy is that of positive masculinity, ingenuity, and inventiveness. He’s a craftsman, and dextrous in his abilities. Does your need that kind of help, or do they display those kinds of abilities? Ptah is practical and able to deal with any kind of work – from hard labour to the most intricate of technical issues. He deals with new inventions and scientific discoveries. He loves a gadget.
Ptah represents the gentle caring side of a man who does not need to resort to violence to make his point. All of this would indicate that even if your partner isn’t male, they share these same traits of creativity, ingenuity, and practicality. And because Ptah is considered to be the ‘nice guy’ of the deck, helping out where and when he can, it’s likely that they are considered to be someone who is appreciated for their support.
He’s associated with the astrological sign of Aquarius and in some myths, he was married to Sekhmet.
