The Self - Who We Truly Are
July FIRST the Day of EMANCIPATION: July 1 people tend to be highly sensitive, capable and adaptable, as well as emotionally open. Though many born on this day are also long-suffering, and very prone to emotional pain, they generally win out in their struggle against dominance, injustice or oppression of any type.

TWO of Diamonds: The WHEELER DEALER Card: The Two of Diamonds has an innate intuition that, if followed, will always lead them to success in all their dealings. Inherent in this intuition is a high set of values and often a "mission" in life, a mission that always involves partners and "others". There is a certain amount of ambition, usually for money, that keeps them motivated. This is good because they can get into ruts at times - especially in their closest relationships. If they tap into their inner guidance they will find a path awaiting them that is fascinating and rewarding. They do best by establishing themselves in one business and sticking with it. They should be careful that their social obligations do not tax their health and well being. They usually make large sums of money in real estate in their later years and maintain good health throughout their lives. These people love to mix and mingle and to do "deals" with others. Once they have discovered their special mission, they find more success. Source: The Secret Language of Birthdays Gary Goldschneider & Joost Elffers.
CANCER I - The Week of the EMPATH June 25-July 2:
Cancer I's are hard to figure out. Emotionally complex, they combine sharply contrasting qualities in their psychological makeup. They may give entirely different impression than in another, according to their mood. A Cancer I may strike one person as outgoing, another as negative and depressive, still others as easygoing, others as difficult. Only those who live with Cancer I's day in and day out are fully able to appreciate their depth and diversity. Source: The Secret Language of Relationships Gary Goldschneider & Joost Elffers.

TWO of Clubs: The Card of CONVERSATION: Among the people of this card you will note a wide variety. Many are fearful of everything, especially being alone, and will do everything in their power to make sure they are surrounded by people who admire them. All are sociable and enjoy good stimulating conversations. Then there are those who are reclusive and appear to need no one. In truth, they are just as afraid and always have one special person that they attach themselves to. The Ace of Spades Karma Card can mean an inner fear of death or change and this explains much of their behavior. However, these people are well endowed with many natural abilities and gifts. They can be exceptional in business and with people, preferring to work in partnership rather than alone. There is much protection surrounding this card and they all have much to be grateful for. If they simply recognize the abundance in their lives, they will help to dispel their underlying fear that can do so much damage. Source: Robert Camp's Love Cards

SEVEN of Hearts: The SPIRITUAL LOVE Card: The Seven of Hearts has a quest for the truth about love and relationships. They are old souls who have come here to reach the highest in these areas, "or else". With two nines in their Life Path, they have come to complete a grand cycle in their soul's work and to let go of many things so that they may progress to the next level. These people must learn to let go of all personal attachments and give to others without expectation of return or reward. On the low side, these people can be preoccupied with many suspicions and jealousies, which is but a reflection of their own nature. On the high side, we find those who make great personal sacrifices for others and who give much to the world. All must find some way to give to the world to attain peace and satisfaction. This usually manifests as teaching or consulting. Anyone born as a seven or nine must learn to give and let go or suffer great pain and disappointment. The Seven of Hearts are the givers of knowledge and love and can reach the highest. Source: Robert Camp's Love Cards.

Wounded in the Concern for Others stage of Childhood Development 6-13 Pamela Anderson chose the Caretaker role: Core Belief: "Others need me." Here she is visiting Julian Assange (Wikileaks) at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.
Karma – Emotional Interference.
How Pamela Anderson was wounded in childhood does seem to fit the ACE of Spades - Karma of Emotional Interference, much in the same way as her fellow July 1st traveler Princess Diana.
The success or failure of the Ace of Spades relationships depends mostly upon whether or not they are taking a more spiritual approach to their life in general. Those who are more materialistically minded find themselves challenged again and again in the areas of love. Emotional attachment brings continual pain. There can be betrayal and disillusionment over and over until they see their own subtle attachments that lie at the root of these problems. Personal fulfillment in love is delayed for most of them until they have reached some level of non-attachment to others and have learned how to give themselves the love they seek from others. Theirs is a difficult path in relationships, but not impossible.
At heart they are very loving and giving, with precious dreams of love that await fulfillment. This ideal relationship is not beyond their capability, but it usually comes later in life rather than earlier.
Thanks Tracy, a little encouragement goes a long way and I learn more with every birthday.
