April SEVENTEENTH (4d) the Day of SERIOUS PURPOSE:

Those born on April 17 carry a strong sense of their own power while at the same time exhibiting an adventuresome spirit and leadership and leadership qualities. These are definitely people who expect to be listened to when they speak. As a matter of fact, being ignored in any manner is extremely difficult for them to handle. They know that they count, that they are important, and often they expect that others will pay respect and follow them to the ends of the earth, if necessary.
 
STRENGTHS: Well-Grounded, Strong-Willed, Responsible
 
WEAKNESSES: Overly Critical, Judgmental, Grim
 

ADVICETry to be less critical of others. Also, beware of becoming too dependent on having to have their approval. Seek spiritual as well as physical activity. Lighten-up; remember to have fun. Set easy tasks for yourself as well as difficult ones.

Diamonds - Values - Security – Dharma

4 of Diamonds - Concentration on Security

Karma for the 4 of Diamonds - Overcoming of Self
 
FOUR  of Diamonds: The Card of SOLID VALUES:  The Four of Diamonds is a card of protection in finances, however that protection is only accessed through hard work. This card, above most others, must put forth the effort to reap the rewards, but the rewards are surely there. To achieve this, they often have to come to terms with their own inner restlessness (Five of Spades Karma Card) and dissatisfaction.  They never receive anything without paying some price for it. Often the work they must do involves their marriage or their closest relationships. These people are very sociable, meet many people, and usually have many friends. They have high ideals concerning love and often these ideals can cause confusion in real life romantic situations. There are difficulties to be dealt with in their life and they must watch a tendency to get into a rut and get stuck there. However, all they need to do to have more happiness is to work. Once they get into action, everything smooths out, and their fears are laid to rest.
Your Karma Cards are the:  FIVE of Spades - You owe something to this person and they reflect you in some way.  FIVE of Hearts - This person owes you and you are their mirror in some way.

four of diamonds FOUR of Diamonds: The importance of work is stressed for all 4's, and this is especially true of the 4 of Diamonds. There is inherent protection for this card, but only if they are making diligent and concentrated efforts in their lives. When this is lacking, poverty and failure - in varying degrees - are the sure results. A life of leisure is just not part of their life plan. This is by no means an easy card to deal with. They are known to rebel at the restrictions imposed by relationships, work and life circumstances. While they are basically materially oriented people, there is an underlying spiritual interest which should not be neglected! A good earning capacity belongs to this card but it is only through hard work that their dreams become a reality.  http://www.metasymbology.com/

ARIES III The Week of the PIONEER April 11 - 18: Aries III's are quite uncharacteristic of the more self-centered, egoistic Aries types; much more social in nature, they must interact dynamically and regularly with their fellow humans, particularly with regard to bettering their living and working conditions. They are often true leaders, more concerned with doing good for their followers than with their own glory. Pioneers, they are often idealistic types who follow their visions fearlessly. Needless to say, they cannot exist side by side for long with .another dominant personality, particularly one who challenges their authority. Such struggles may confuse or bewilder those born in this week, who believe that they are only acting for the good of all.

Strengths: PROTECTIVE, GENEROUS, FEARLESS

Weaknesses: UNREALISTIC, UNYIELDING, SELF-SACRIFICING

ADVICE: Tune into what people are really saying. Beware of those who wish to monopolize your time and energy. Ideals and ideas can be worthy of devotion, but also destructive. Make sure that others want to be helped or led before you offer. Try to keep in touch with the actual state of things. Beware of being carried away by your own enthusiasm.
