April NINTH (Qd) the Day of EXCESS:
April 9 people are certainly one of a kind. They are often the extreme embodiment of unusual trends in society, their talents conveyed in excess. Any compromise, restriction or tempering of their abilities is out of the question. Usually they leave no doubt as to their views on any subject - they are outspoken, direct, sometimes even harsh. But talking about what they do is not really their specialty; they just prefer doing it, which usually means doing it a lot;
STRENGTHS: Strong-Minded, Persuasive, Progressive
WEAKNESSES: Misleading, Over-Indulgent, Destructive
ADVICE: You must learn to compromise. Beware of selfishness, giving and receiving love is important for everyone. Don't get stuck in the physical, always reach for the stars. Temper your wildest urges and learn the lessons of balance.

Queen of Diamonds ~ Domination in the Realm of Values
FAMOUS QUEEN of Diamonds: Julian Paul Assange is an Australian computer programmer, publisher and journalist. He is known as the editor-in-chief of the website WikiLeaks, which he co-founded in 2006 after an earlier career in hacking and programming. July 3, 1971 (age 44), Townsville, Australia.
QUEEN of Diamonds: Some of our greatest philanthropists are the Queen of Diamonds. In the world of art, some of our greatest poets, painters and musicians have contributed their wealth. It is these Queen of Diamonds people that have learned the true meaning of value. They are people fitted for authority and should have it! The path for the Queen of Diamonds is a hard one - so beset with difficulties and obstacles - they are continually sapped of strength as they struggle to overcome one thing after the other. Those born under this card are diligent and dependable. They are strong of character, and determined, but they must guard against hardness and domination. They have much to contend with, and much should be forgiven them. The men strive to provide their partners with security, but can be overly sensitive and prone to temper tantrums. The women enjoy sharing in their partner's business affairs. http://www.metasymbology.com/
ARIES II - 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.
