February FOURTH (8s) the Day of the CURVEBALLER:

Those born on February 4 rarely do anything in a straight-line fashion. Because of their unconventionality , they sometimes make a less than stellar impression as to their intellect, but in fact they just have their own unusual way of doing things. Some February 4 people realize early on that they do not apprehend the world as others do, and respond by just acting as weird as they wish. Other February 4 people try to be super-straight, but usually fail to carry this off, ending up like a round peg in a square hole. The happiest of February 4 people are plainly themselves and do not rely on a great deal of approval and acclaim. The degree to which those born on this day must do things their own way can be both amusing and alarming. Often to accomplish the simplest of tasks, they can use the most roundabout, off-the-wall methods. They could be called impractical or even perverse except for the fact that in some strange way these methods seem to work out for them. For example they may have a system of filing information or ordering their appointments that would confuse others and yet they are able to retrieve what they need very quickly, and stay on top of things. In their unusual cognition, front may be back, up down, right left, and so on. Some February 4 people may even display a degree of synesthesia, that is, hearing sounds as colors, colors as sounds, visualizing words as shapes and perhaps remembering facts and numbers through vivid associations.

STRENGTHS: Sincere, Lively, Entertaining

WEAKNESSES: Scattered, Unrealistic

ADVICE: Some thoughts are better kept to yourself. Work on yourself privately and get some things straightened out.Your eccentricities are charming but can also irritate people at times. Learn to laugh at yourself, occasionally.

EIGHT of Spades: The Power Through Work Card:  As the "eight of eights", the power card of power cards, the Eight of Spades has the heaviest burden and obligation to use his or her power for good. Spades take us into the spiritual realms though many spade people cannot un-rivet their attention from material gain and mastery. Success is almost easy for them, as long as they are willing to work for it many of these people are workaholics. They know that they possess great power. The test comes in how they choose to use it. When they work from a lower sense of values, or when operating from their "fear pattern", they can use this power to destroy themselves. They need to be admired and will work hard for it. They make good providers and will often try to marry those of means also. Divorce is often lucrative for them. They can handle obstacles, which often serve as a measure of their true abilities. They have a profound healing power, and if directed, can transform the lives of those they come in contact with.

AQUARIUS II: The Week of YOUTH and EASE January 31-February 7: "No hassles" could be the motto of most AQUARIUS II's. Listening to those born in this week, one would gather that they do not like trouble in any form and would do practically anything to avoid it. They value their happiness highly, both in the long term and in the short. AQUARIUS II's generally ask to be left alone to travel their own path with as little interference as possible. Not much interested in controlling others or meddling in their affairs, those born in this week are happy to accord the same treatment to other people that they demand for themselves.

AQUARIUS II NOTABLES: Charles Dickens, Clark  Gable, Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Adlai Stevenson, James Michener, , Nolan Ryan, James Joyce, An Wang, Mary Leakey, Phil Collins, John Ford, Ida Lupino, Gertrude Stein. Source: The Secret Language of Relationships Gary Goldschneider & Joost Elffers.

Strengths: ACCOMPLISHED - ADMIRED - REFINED

Weaknesses: IMMATURE - TORTURED - CUT OFF

ADVICE: Try to get in touch with your own deeper feelings. Sometimes it is better to meet problems head on. A bit of pain now may prevent much more latter. Don't be too dependent on others' opinion of you. Have the courage to be yourself and don't feel you have to please or entertain. 

The February 4th EIGHT  of Spades "The Power in Work Card," as the "eight of eights" intuitively know that they possess great power. How they earn their moniker, the Day of the CURVEBALLER, is their Ego the THREE  of Spades "The Artist Card." February 4 people have that, Picasso as a baseball pitcher, approach to whatever they do. Their two karma cards and Aquarius II sign, make them valedictorians at birth. They can honor their birthright, as long as they avoid the karma pit of materialism.  The +karma card the KING  of Clubs "The Master of Knowledge" coupled with the -karma SIX  of Clubs "The Missionary Card" is exemplified in the careers of 'Lucky' Lindy and the "The Godfather of Shock Rock" Alice Cooper. Just thinking about, the 'curve ball' that Rosa Parks pitched on the Cleveland Ave. bus in Montgomery that day in 1955, leaves no doubt in my mind, who won the game.
