July EIGHTH (7d) the Day of the DARK PRAGMATIST:
The Jack of Clubs Club
"If your only goal is to become rich, you will never achieve it." - John D. Rockefeller
ADVICE: Every so often, lighten up a bit and have some fun with no practical goal in mind. Treat those close to you to a good time also, and not just as a reward either. Work out your aggression in the context of fair play. If you need help, don't be afraid to ask for it. Being able to admit to your weaknesses is a sign of strength.
BORN ON THIS DAY: John D. Rockefeller, Nelson Rockefeller, Phillip C. Johnson, Ferdinand von Zeppelin, Wolfgang Puck, Billy Eckstine, Käthe Kollwitz, Kevin Bacon, Roone Arledge; Source: The Secret Language of Birthdays, Gary Goldschneider & Joost Elffers.
Diamonds - Values - Security – Dharma,
7 of Diamonds - Conflict between Spirit and Matter,
Karma - Harmonization of Money and Love.
SEVEN of Diamonds: The MILLIONAIRE'S Card By suit, the Seven of Diamonds is always connected with finances. As a spiritual number, they must maintain a non-attached attitude about money or there will be continuous problems in this area. Once they put money in its proper place however, they often attain or inherit great wealth. Regardless, many of their life lessons will come through this avenue. The other avenue is their close relationships. Family, lovers and friends are all very important to the Seven of Diamonds person. They have close ties, for better or worse, with their family and share in their trials. They are usually restless, making frequent changes in either occupation or location. Their love life usually entails sacrifice and disappointment until they learn to let others go and be as they are. In their spiritual studies they find inner satisfaction and validation for their own intuition. Once on the path, everything in their life is put into proper perspective and they can excel in any chosen field.

The SEVEN of Diamonds is a card necessarily associated with money - for good or ill, little or much. It is a card of power and accomplishment. And for those who have not acquired a sense of value, it is known as the Card of "Wine, Women and Song."
The lives of the Seven of Diamonds people seem to follow cycles of 5 or 7 years; changes are often violent, always sudden. There is a great love of home for all 7 of Diamonds, but they may have to wait for it, as their early life is filled with many changes. The Seven of Diamonds is one of the "swing cards", exchanging places with the 9 of Hearts every other year. This symbolizes a challenge in balancing love with money. When their love life is running smoothly, the need for earning money becomes the priority - and when there is wealth, the stability of their home life tends to suffer! http://www.metasymbology.com/
CANCER II - The Week of the UNCONVENTIONAL July 3 - 10: Cancer II's can appear quite normal, and may occupy ordinary positions in the working world, but they are irresistibly attracted to the unusual and the bizarre. Few colleagues and associates are ever granted access to their secret world; only their intimates come to realize, often after years of close association, how closely their fascination with all that is strange and curious mirrors their own inner self.
Strengths: FANTASY-RICH - FUN - PSYCHOLOGICALLY ASTUTE
Weaknesses: SELF-DESTRUCTIVE - OBSESSIVE - EMBARRASSING
Advice: Make a real effort to get out in the world. Toughen your stance a bit and try not to be so sensitive. Develop your financial sense and cultivate your talent for maintenance and continuity. Keep contact with those who care about you. Put your active fantasy and imagination to productive use.

The July 8 SEVEN of Diamonds "Millionaire's Card" has a bi-polar marriage to their Cosmic Twin the NINE of Hearts "Giver of Love" so much so that they exchange roles every other year. This is the chief reason for their Karma - Harmonization of Money and Love. The SEVEN of Diamonds is fixed, like the Sun with five karma cards orbiting around her, neither positive or negative. This is their sphere of influence, a coterie of hidden talents that they can draw on in any situation in which they are involved.
Käthe Kollwitz, July 8, 1867, Dark Pragmatist Self Portrait
July EIGHTH the Day of the DARK PRAGMATIST: chose the SEVEN of Hearts "The Spiritual Love Card" for their Ego, their Who They Think They Are persona. Every other year they switch out their 7 of Diamonds "Spiritual Values" Self their Who They Truly Are for the NINE of Hearts "The Universal Love Card." That's a lot of goodie two shoes stuff, so how do they get the Dark Pragmatist moniker? Blame it on their karma - Conflict between Spirit and Matter.
John D. Rockefeller ruthlessly went about making his oil monopoly, so his July 8 birthday grandson Nelson Rockefeller, could become a philanthropist.
