Garcia: This is the Senior year of your mid-life (45-55) transition, prepare a commencement address for delivery to yourself.
I met Garcia in 2008 the year after he had founded the Middle Kingdom Toastmasters Club in Zhengzhou, China. Toastmasters is like a mainstream version of Group Therapy or Psychodrama and I confessed in my speeches that I had aspirations of becoming a Fortune-Teller. Garcia a Northern California expat expressed interest in Astrology voodoo and volunteered to be my first patient victim.
Garcia is a November TWENTY-FOURTH the Day of CONTENTIOUS CONVIVIALITY, along with the likes of Scott Joplin, Toulouse Lautrec, Zachary Taylor, Oscar Robertson, Benedict de Spinoza, William F. Buckley, Ted Bundy, Al Cohn, Dale Carnegie, Lucky Luciano.
I emailed Garcia his Birthday Reading for his 55th year and cautioned him that this was his graduation year from mid-life transition and he needed to think about what he is going to do for the rest of his life. That's why they call it a transition.
"What are the highlights I should know?" - Garcia
There's the problem, no matter how much effort Robert Camp has put in developing the software of the Love Cards, the interpretation lies with each one of the 365 end users. Garcia and I have this ten year friendship that began when Garcia was a freshman at 45 and I was a post graduate - no. I was an alumnus at age 65, of Mid-Life Transition. My crisis struct at 48.2 years and by 55 I had transitioned from architect to goat farmer.
So, to answer Garcia's what should I know? I compared November 24 luminaries Zachary Taylor, Lucky Luciano. and Dale Carnegie at age fifty-five. The readings (scripts) are the same for everyone born on November 24 since at least 4 BC and the beginning of the Piscean Age.
Second Seminole War: Zach Taylor 1784-1850 1839 his 55th year
By 1837 (53), the Second Seminole War was underway when Taylor was directed to Florida. He defeated the Seminole Indians in the Christmas Day Battle of Lake Okeechobee, which was among the largest U.S.–Indian battles of the nineteenth century; as a result, he was promoted to brigadier general. In May 1838 (54), Brig. Gen. Thomas Jesup stepped down and placed Taylor in command of all American troops in Florida, a position he held for two years—his reputation as a military leader was growing and he became known as "Old Rough and Ready."Taylor was criticized for using bloodhounds in order to track Seminole.
After his long-requested relief was granted, Taylor spent a comfortable year touring the nation with his family and meeting with military leaders. During this period, he began to be interested in politics and corresponded with President William Henry Harrison. He was made commander of the Second Department of the Army's Western Division in May 1841 (57). The sizable territory ran from the Mississippi River westward, south of the 37th parallel north. Stationed in Arkansas, Taylor enjoyed several uneventful years, spending as much time attending to his land speculation as to military matters.
"Lucky" Luciano at fifty-five transitioned to life as an exile in Italy.
In 1952 (55), the Italian government revoked Luciano's passport after complaints from US and Canadian law enforcement officials. On November 1, 1954 (57), an Italian judicial commission in Naples applied strict limits on Luciano for two years. He was required to report to the police every Sunday, to stay home every night, and to not leave Naples without police permission. The commission cited Luciano's alleged involvement in the narcotics trade as the reason for these restrictions.
The much-publicized exploits of Capone with the Chicago Outfit made him the more well-known mobster in American history, but he did not exert influence over other Mafia families as Luciano did in the creation and running of The Commission. In 1998, Time characterized Luciano as the "criminal mastermind" among the top 20 most influential builders and titans of the 20th century.
Dale Carnegie at fifty-five was already a big success as America's first motivational speaker and a great match for Garcia's passion for Toastmasters and Brian Tracy
After saving $500 (about $13 thousand today), Dale Carnegie quit sales in 1911 (23) How old were you when you went to China? in order to pursue a lifelong dream of becoming a Chautauqua lecturer. He ended up instead attending the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York, but found little success as an actor, though it is written that he played the role of Dr. Hartley in a road show of Polly of the Circus. When the production ended, he returned to New York, unemployed, nearly broke, and living at the YMCA on 125th Street. There he got the idea to teach public speaking, and he persuaded the YMCA manager to allow him to instruct a class in return for 80% of the net proceeds. In his first session, he had run out of material. Improvising, he suggested that students speak about "something that made them angry", and discovered that the technique made speakers unafraid to address a public audience. From this 1912 (24) debut, the Dale Carnegie Course evolved. Carnegie had tapped into the average American's desire to have more self-confidence, and by 1914 (26), he was earning $500 (about $12,200 today) every week.
His crowning achievement, however, was when Simon & Schuster published How to Win Friends and Influence People. The book was a bestseller from its debut in 1936 (48),[ in its 17th printing within a few months. By the time of Carnegie's death, the book had sold five million copies in 31 languages, and there had been 450,000 graduates of his Dale Carnegie Institute. It has been stated in the book that he had critiqued over 150,000 speeches in his participation in the adult education movement of the time.
His first marriage ended in divorce in 1931. On November 5, 1944 (55 & 11 months), in Tulsa, Oklahoma, he married Dorothy Price Vanderpool (1913–1998), who also had been divorced. Vanderpool had two daughters; Rosemary, from her first marriage, and Donna Dale from their marriage together.
You have and Luciano, Carnegie, and Zach Taylor had the FOUR of Hearts "Family Love & Marriage" in Neptune from 3 October to 24 November as the Divination script for your Ego (Planetary Ruling Card).
The Four of Hearts in the Neptune Period
This period could see you taking a pleasurable journey, probably over water. Your marriage or closest relationship will probably take on an idealistic tone which may seem quite wonderful and romantic now. Indeed, there is the possibility of experiencing a 'divine' love now with real spiritual overtones. Just be careful under the Neptune influence, as you may tend to see others as you want them to be, rather than as they truly are.
This card can also affect you for the entire year, causing you to dream about a perfect marriage or house that you want.
Garcia: At 55 Zachary Taylor started dabbling in politics. Lucky Luciano was deported to Italy but remained active in mob stuff until he died at 65. However, I think you should read a Dale Carnegie biography because
