February THIRD (9s) the Day of EXACTING REALISM:
Most of the people born on February 3 pay painstaking attention to the details of their profession and rate very highly on technique. They have a knack for what they can do with unmistakable ease with their materials and the ability to take things apart then put them back together and keep them running in good order. They also have a fine sense of timing for picking exactly the right moment to make their move in business and in love. This latter aptitude can be treated by them as a passionate "hobby" which gets the attention of a full-time career. Those born on this day are very realistic about what they can and cannot do. They may or may not have genius enough to be strikingly original, but they will master every aspect of their craft. Punctuality is not their strong point, however, so one should not expect them to arrive on time (others' time, that is). February 3 people are patient and persistent, also surprisingly matter-of-fact about their abilities. Yet as much as they seem to have it together, emotionally they can display deep-seated problems. They may have a great deal of difficulty having any kind of normal intimate relationship, and can be scared off by the mere suggestion of it. Particularly men born on this day can fit the label "commitment phobic" but both male and female February 3 people often demand highly unconventional situations, not infrequently in the sexual sphere.
STRENGTHS: Technical, Detailed, Perfectionist
WEAKNESSES: Unreliable, Emotionally Difficult, Self-Indulgent
ADVICE: Stay in there. Try to hold up your end of the deal and don't cut out so easily. A few rules never hurt anybody. Don't be frightened of feelings. We all have to face responsibilities sooner or later.
BORN ON THIS DAY: Gertrude Stein, Norman Rockwell, James A. Michner, Fran Tarkenton, Bob Griese, Horace Greeley, Amal Alamuddin Clooney, Joey Bishop, Shelley Berman, Morgan Fairchild; Source: The Secret Language of Birthdays Gary Goldschneider & Joost Elffers.
MEDITATION: Non-Attachment is a good thing, but one can become attached to that as well.
Spades - Wisdom - Labor – Acceptance
9 of Spades - Spiritual Awareness
NINE of Spades: The UNIVERSAL GIVER Card: This is the strongest of the universal nines, with the strongest call towards letting go and completions in life. Among these people you will find those whose lives are filled with losses, and others whose lives are filled with giving and fulfillment. These people can never completely ignore their inherent spirituality or psychic side. Those that acknowledge this important part of themselves are guided to a life of universal giving. In this regard, some of them can make the greatest contributions to the world. Many are successful artists, teachers, or performers. The King of Hearts Karma and Venus card gives them strong emotional and love power and wisdom that can bring much success to them as well as guide them through some of the endings they are sure to encounter. Many are artistically talented. The broader the scope of their work, and the more they focus on giving to larger groups, the more their inherent power shines and they rise to prominence on their mission of love.

NINE of Spades: Sensitive, idealist, unconventional - none of the 9 of Spades are undeveloped or unaware, and it's that very awareness that either disturbs them or inspires them. The 9 of Spades people need to find a positive philosophical or spiritual ideal to help them cope with their intense inner-emotional conflicts. If not, then psychosomatic illnesses often develop and they may, for a time, be incapacitated for active work. All 9 of Spades have tremendous personal magnetism, and have a strong paternal nature toward those they love. The Nine of Spades will often be brought into contact with a wise and kindly man - a mentor who sets them back on their feet and instills in them the self-confidence that should never be lacking. These are truly gifted people with much to offer. If only they are made to realize it! http://www.metasymbology.com/
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: Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Adlai Stevenson, Charles Dickens, James Michener, Clark Gable, 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 3rd NINE of Spades "the Universal Life Card" gets its moniker, the Day of EXACTING REALISM first, because all NINE's are givers: Hearts: Love, Clubs: Knowledge, Diamonds: Value, Spades: Life. Secondly, Their Ego, the TWO of Diamonds "the Wheeler-Dealer Card" are experts at judging the true value of anything (they might get confused in the personal love category but that's another story). Third, the -karma KING of Hearts "the Master of Love Card" keeps the 3 February's Ego on the straight and narrow. However, the fourth card, the +karma SIX of Spades "the Card of FATE" guarantees that if 3 February strays from its giver of Universal Life path, it will soon hear about it from the Infinite Organizing Power. Today's Birthday exemplars include Michener,
who painted the globe in exacting realism words. However, I only read Hawaii and a third of Centennial. So, I'm going with Norman Rockwell as the King of Universal Life giving, because there is not one of his exacting realism portraits, that I don't like.
