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/
CAPRICORN II (Earth) The Week of DETERMINATION January 3-9: Those born in the Week of Determination often have the drive and ambition necessary to reach the top of their profession. Whether or not they succeed, no one can fault them for not trying. Capricorn II's are strivers, like the mountain goat who seeks the highest crags. Once embarked on a course of action, they are extremely difficult to dissuade from their plans. No matter how great or modest their gifts, Capricorn II's make the most of their abilities and stretch their talents to the outer edge of the envelope. Capricorn II's are usually pictured as hard-headed, down-to-earth thinkers, but those born in the Week of Determination are often interested in the theoretical, even metaphysical, religious or spiritual subjects and practices. Nor are their ideas in these areas at all conservative; they may in fact be rather radical. No idea is too strange or far out for Capricorn II's to at least consider and they have the undeniable tendency to let their minds range over the broadest questions of cosmology and human existence. This philosophical bent, however, is usually based on fact and observation, for Capricorn II's have little time for idle or ill-founded speculation.
Strengths: RESILIENT, RESOURCEFUL, THEORETICAL
Weaknesses: NAIVE, ARMORED, WORKAHOLIC
Advice: Recognize your limitations - they do exist. Allow yourself to give in occasionally, even to fail and acknowledge it. Showing your more vulnerable side should not be threatening. Try to keep your ideals grounded and be sure your "reality" is not in fact an illusion.
NOTABLE Capricorn II's: Elvis Presley, Steven Hawking, Richard Nixon, Alvin Ailey, Isaac Newton, Louis Braille, Diane Keaton, Mel Gibson, Dyan Cannon, Chuck Noll, Victoria Principal, George Reeves, Raisa Gorbachev, Maury Powvitch, Earl Scruggs, Don Shula, Ray Milland; Source: The Secret Language of Relationships Gary Goldschneider & Joost Elffers.
The January 9th the Day of AMBITION is driven by their Ego to be on stage (Brad Pitt, Joe Biden) their "Success with People" karma allows them to be a big hit with the public. Their "Stability in Values" anchors them to tradition. "Pat Nixon wore a cloth coat" while 'Tricky Dick' exercised his "Wanderer" ambition to Latin America as VP, WWII South Pacific in the Navy, Khrushchev in Moscow, and of course China as President. I liken it to a three legged stool with the third odd numbered leg creating an imbalance, every now and again. Or a five legged table is going to always wobble no matter what.
Barbara Walters said that of all the presidents she new personally, "Nixon was the sexiest."
I wonder if this holds true for all January 9 people
