April THIRD (5s) the Day of the FULCRUM:
The Jack of Clubs Club
"A woman's whole life is a history of the affections." - Washington Irving
April 3 people manifest a strong desire to be indispensable to the life in which they find themselves. Quite naturally they manage to be at the center of things, whether it be through their knowledge, talents or social savvy. Ordering and controlling their environment, whether at home or work is a very high priority with them. They usually accomplish this by directing those around them with little verbal hullabaloo, making their wishes known in a direct manner and expecting others to listen attentively. It is intolerable to those born on this day to be ignored. Yet they prefer not to assume a dictatorial stance, and indeed can usually win others over in an easy manner through their natural appeal.
ADVICE: Don't be so dependent on the approval of others nor possessed with serving them. Find your inner values; guard your spirit and develop hidden talents. Curb the desire to control those you live with; learn to back off and just disappear sometimes.
Strengths: GOOD-NATURED - UNASSUMING - FUN-LOVING
Weaknesses: DEMANDING - SELF-CENTERED - NAIVE
BORN ON THIS DAY: Marlon Brando, Jane Goodall, Washington Irving, Doris Day, Eddie Murphy, Henry R. Luce, Alec Baldwin, Marsha Mason, Helmut Kohl, Gus Grissom. Source: The Secret Language of Birthdays Gary Goldschneider & Joost Elffers
MEDITATION: The chicken is the egg's way of reproducing itself.
Spades - Wisdom - Labor – Acceptance
5 of Spades - Labor of Love
FIVE of Spades: The Card of the WANDERER: The Five of Spades is the card of changes and travel. These people like to travel and have a certain amount of restlessness and dislike routine. However, their restlessness often applies to their spiritual quest, their striving for truth and growth of the inner self. With the Jack of Hearts in Mercury there is a certain amount of sacrifice for loved ones in their lives or for an education, especially in early life. The Ten of Hearts Karma Card gives them much in the way of social success though the Nine of Clubs (Venus Card) speaks of many personal disappointments, especially from friends and loved ones. They may have trouble at work with coworkers and other elements that require much effort to overcome. They find the most success working with partners and in occupations that allow them travel and meeting new people. One of their challenges is to find success in their business transactions. They don't always make the best deals for themselves. Money often comes in association with love or marriage.
Your Karma Cards are the: TEN of Hearts - You owe something to this person and they reflect you in some way.
FOUR of Diamonds - This person owes you and you are their mirror in some way.

FIVE of Spades (Swords) in Tarot
FIVE of Spades: The restlessness inherent in all Five's assumes a different quality in the 5 of Spades. These natives seek change to expand their social circles and improve the lives of those they love. Five of Spades tend to wear their hearts on their sleeve. They are known to love deeply and passionately. Unfortunately, and in spite of their desire for long lasting love, they are prone to disappointments and frustrations in their relationships with both women and men. Willing to make sacrifices for the well-being of others, no service is too arduous for them. They enjoy helping other people, and just wish they could do more. Those born under the influence of this card have great inner strength at their disposal. And it's a good thing too - as with their difficult life pattern, they actually really need it! This is a traveler's card and travel is often required in the interests of health or business. These people are usually obliged to keep busy and they hate routine and limitation. http://www.metasymbology.com/
ARIES II (Fire) - The Week of the Star April 3-10: Aries II people need to be at the center of things. They often feel lonely, even in the midst of a crowd, and consequently they rarely allow themselves to be alone. Born in the Week of the Star, they must have satellite planets revolving around them: admirers, supporters or co-workers. These individuals may seem self-centered, but even as they insist that their central position not be jeopardized or threatened, many are able to let go of their ego to a surprising degree by giving themselves fully to a project, cause, movement or religion. Aries II's can be swept away by their own vanity, and this can be unpleasant for those around them. Unfortunately, however, it is an ever-present pitfall for them that they fall in love with their own ideas, projects and even, in extreme cases, themselves.
Strengths: SUCCESS-ORIENTED - COURAGEOUS - ENERGETIC
Weaknesses: ALOOF - IRRITABLE -EXCESSIVE
Advice: Resist overwhelming people with your energy. Act responsibly. Try not to be too needy of attention and beware of leading others on. Confirm your inner values and develop hidden talents.

The April 3 FIVE of Spades "The Wanderer" becomes the Day of the FULCRUM whenever their NINE of Spades Ego "The Universal Life Card" weighs-in with a decision on the situation, their 'Birth' Card, their 'Who They Are' Card, has 'wandered' them into.
The April 3 'Wanderers,' like all FIVE of Spades, suffer from their karmic fear - Discouragement. The karma for their NINE of Spades Ego - Universality lays the heavy burden of leadership in universal values. They are Supreme Court Judges, who never get a day off from the bench.
