Maddow has dealt with cyclical depression since puberty. In a 2012 interview, she stated, "It doesn't take away from my joy or my work or my energy, but coping with depression is something that is part of the everyday way that I live and have lived for as long as I can remember." She has explained why she decided to speak about it in interviews: "It was a hard call ... Because it was nobody's business. But it had been helpful to me to learn about the people who were surviving, were leading good lives, even though they were dealing with depression. So I felt it was a bit of a responsibility to pay that back."
The April 1st Card of FAITH
April 1st BIRTHDAYS: Abraham Maslow, Rachel Maddow, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Lon Chaney, Paul Manafort, Otto von Bismarck, Susan Boyle, Wallace Beery, Debbie Reynolds, Ali MacGraw (film actress), Jane Powell (film actress), Samuel Alito, Terry Nichols;
SEVEN of Spades: The Card of FAITH This card is regarded as one of the most spiritual in the deck and these people can have great success in their life as long as they do not disregard the wisdom that is intended to guide them through life. These people are here to learn to TRUST and keep going in spite of circumstances. Their main challenges will come in the areas of work and health. The underlying King of Diamonds mandates that they must live the higher values they know if they are to have the blessings and power that is inherently available to them. Being the Seven of Spades puts them on the line. They must think, speak and act from a higher perspective or suffer innumerable ills. They are protected by a high, spiritual force but even this is not as powerful as their own actions and attitudes. They must live what they know and follow their intuitive guidance. Many marry into money or receive support from associations. They can always do well if they work hard and maintain honesty. Nothing can stop them but themselves.
Ego: FINANCIALLY CREATIVE Card
The JACK of Diamonds:This is the salesman's card. These people are sharp, clever and always able to make a good living using their wit and charm. They are very independent and creative, and operate as much on their instincts as they do on their quick minds.
-Karma: The BUSINESS OWNER Card
The KING of Diamonds is the master of values. In this regard he or she can do very well in any business pursuit, applying the inherited knowledge to their business with much success. These people always do better as heads of their own business. They can be very mercenary when it comes to money and business, but they don't have to be. This is the only "one-eyed" King in the deck which means that they tend to see everything from their own point of view exclusive of others.
+Karma: The EMOTIONAL POWER and CHARM Card
The EIGHT of Hearts: success with people, especially the opposite sex: The Eight of Hearts has "power in love" and all eights have to exercise discrimination and responsibility in its use. Both karma cards of the Eight of Hearts are sevens. This tells us that they will see almost immediate results when they misuse their power with others. With wisdom and spiritual awareness they can rise to great heights in sharing their love and healing power with others. Operating out of their fear, we find those who are the dominators of those they love and seek to manipulate others through guilt and withholding of affection and acknowledgment. These people have high ideals about love and relationships, sometimes these ideals are too high to ever be met. They have great minds, make excellent teachers or they can excel in any occupation where a good mind will make a difference.
