THREE of Diamonds: Bright, personable, optimistic and fun. These are the positive attributes of the Three of Diamonds. Unfortunately, the overwhelming urge for self-protection in material interests can throw these people back on the stark uncertainty, and insecurity of the number 3. During late teens and early twenties, 3 of Diamonds people may become victims of unreliable friends or associates. If they have beauty, material security or other advantages, they can be subject to jealousy and gossip. Early marriage is usually filled with such serious obstacles and troubles, it's better for the 3 of Diamonds to wait until late 20's before tying the knot. http://www.metasymbology.com/
AQUARIUS-PISCES CUSP - The Cusp of Sensitivity February 16-22: Those born on the Cusp of Sensitivity are often success-oriented individuals who give top priority to their career. They are usually fighters, an attitude sometimes based on underlying insecurity and the need to prove themselves. A chip-on-the-shoulder attitude in many Aquarius-Pisces makes them aggressive toward others and belligerent when attacked. A great personal challenge for Aquarius-Pisces, then, is to rediscover and acknowledge their inner makeup and to break down some of the barriers they have built up. The tough, even aggressive exterior of many born on the Aquarius-Pisces Cusp belies the sensitive personality inside. Extremely vulnerable as children, Aquarius-Pisces react to criticism or abuse from others by building a wall around themselves. Carried with them into adulthood, this armor may give the impression of an inner self far different from the reality.
Strengths: Success-Oriented, Concerned, Caring
Weaknesses: Insecure, Pessimistic Isolated
ADVICE: Don't give up on the world or retreat behind fences. If necessary tear obstructions down to rediscover your sensitive self. Learning to trust may mean ceasing to fear. Without denying your need to explore the depths and the heights, take the middle road more often.
