'People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.' - Ralph Houk
ADVICE: What you believe to be true for the welfare of others is not always for the best. Remember the power your words have to control and to hurt, therefore beware of undue influence on the lives of others. Learn to listen carefully;
MEDITATION: Some people do their best work sleeping.
Diamonds - Values - Security – Dharma
4 of Diamonds - Concentration on Security
FOUR of Diamonds BIRTHDAYS: January 23 (Aquarius), February 21 ( Pisces), March 19 (Aries), April 17 (Aries), May 15 (Taurus), June 13 (Gemini), July 11 (Cancer), August 9 (Leo II), September 7 (Virgo), October 5 (Libra), November 3 ( Scorpio), December 1 (Sagittarius);
FAMOUS FOUR of Diamonds: Deion Sanders Sr. is a former American football and baseball player who works as an analyst for CBS Sports and the NFL Network. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2011. August 9, 1967 (age 50), Fort Myers, FL.
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/
LEO II - The Week of BALANCED STRENGTH August 3-10: Solid and tough, Leo II's do not back down from challenges; in fact, they thrive on them,and are often at their best when facing problems and difficulties. Although drawn toward experiences that hod an element of danger, they are usually not foolhardy enough to attempt the impossible. Realists, they are well aware of their limitations, which they may stretch to the limit if necessary but will rarely try to over leap. Fixed attitudes characterize those born in this week, so it will take a great deal of persistence to get them to change their mind. Leo II's pride themselves on their ability to spot phoniness and nonsense, and are particularly critical of metaphysical ideas not strongly grounded in the here and now.
Strengths: Devoted, Trustworthy, Physical
Weaknesses: Masochistic, Depressed, Guilty
ADVICE: Watch your temper. Hotheadedness can throw you off balance and aid your opponent.Compromise and diplomacy are virtues to be cultivated, not weaknesses to be despised. Remain open and vulnerable to love. Don't be too hard on yourself, or too demanding. Ease up a bit on the expectations you place on others.
LEO II NOTABLES: Whitney Houston, John Huston, Patrick Ewing, Andy Warhol, Melanie Griffith, Mata Hari, Anne Klein, Martha Stewart, Dustin Hoffman, Courtney Love, Tony Bennett, Lucille Ball, Maurice Richard, Neil Armstrong, Louis Leakey, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Esther Williams, Bob Cousy.

August NINTH the Day of PSYCHOLOGICAL LEVERAGE: is of two karmic minds, the FIVE of Spades "The Wanderer" and the FIVE of Hearts "The Emotional Adventurer." August 9's birth sign, LEO II - The Week of BALANCED STRENGTH August 3-10, doubles up in the Fire-Do-Sensing-Let's Just Do It-Spades quadrant. As Leo II's August 9 folks have zero confusion about who they are, the FOUR of Diamonds "Stability in Values," because their Self, Who They Truly Are and their Ego, Who They Think They Are, cards are the same.
Lovable, beyond lovable, sometimes August 9's FIVE of Hearts "The Emotional Adventurer." bumps up against the 4 of Diamonds karma "Overcoming the Self." Let's call it psychologically Over-Leveraged.
