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.
