Hearts govern the first period of our lives and the first season of the year – the season of childhood. Family, love, home, relationships, emotions, and children all fall under the domain of Hearts. People who are born as a Hearts Life Card are child-like in nature because they are the children of the deck, often maintaining a youthful exuberance even into later years. They never really get old, not on the inside. They usually love children. Hearts people are most concerned and affected by their personal relationships, especially relationships with people in their families. They live through emotions and relationships. Hearts is also the suit of sex and Hearts people seem to make that a greater priority than the other suits. The Hearts person is here searching for the perfect love. The positive Hearts is friendly and affectionate; the negative Hearts is self-indulgent or flirtatious. Hearts excel in people-oriented careers. They make good nurses, teachers, and counselors, as well as artists and musicians.
The Clubs Suit:
Clubs govern the period of life after childhood when we are sent off to school every day. Clubs govern education, communications, both written and verbal, our thinking, and information-based activities and jobs. Legal matters are also ruled by Clubs. People who are Clubs are ‘eternal college students.’ They love to read and to learn new things. They thrive on conversation and communications in all forms. To a Clubs person, the thought is as good as the thing itself. They are the detail people of the deck too. They will notice and find things that other suits miss. The Clubs person is searching for the perfect truth. Clubs people are creative and experience life through talking and learning. As the students of the deck, Clubs are curious, always thinking, and love to talk, read and teach. The positive Clubs is brilliant and well-informed; the negative Clubs can be a dishonest know-it-all. Great careers for Clubs include teaching, writing, law, and journalism.
The Diamonds Suit:
Diamonds represent the harvest season, both in the year and in our life. It is the suit of value and accumulation of value. Whereas Clubs accumulate knowledge, Diamonds prefer money and things. To Diamonds, all things, including people and relationships, have a value. The Diamonds person is the one who assigns this value and in truth, through the accumulation of things and money, the Diamonds person is seeking his or her own value in the world. All the money cards in the Cards of Life are Diamonds, the good ones and the bad ones. As the adults of the deck, Diamonds can’t stand being told what to do. Even children who are Diamonds do not like being treated as a baby. And they generally choose to hang out with kids a little older than themselves. Some of the greatest money people in the world have Diamonds cards. The Diamonds person is seeking self-worth and are on the planet to clarify values. They like to spend money and like nice things. Diamonds on a positive path are generous and philanthropic. The negative-minded Diamonds can be greedy or miserly. Careers for the Diamonds person include banking, investing, merchandising, politics, retail, producing and big business.
The Spades Suit:
Spades is the suit of wisdom and wisdom can only be obtained through experience. Though a Clubs may have wealth of knowledge, their knowledge is, by definition, inferior to wisdom. And all Spades people know this. These are the workers of the deck. All the workaholic cards are Spades and any Spades person can be accused of it at one time or the other. Spades are also connected to health and health issues are a common symptom in the last years of our life which Spades govern. Not all Spades have health issues but quite a few of them do. A Spades person is interested in doing, as opposed to the feeling, thinking or wanting of the other suits. Spades children like to hang with the grandparents and much older people since they are essentially old souls, even from birth. A Spades person is seeking self perfection through doing, and their work. Spades people are confident, strong-willed and wise. Even when they are young, they will often act more mature than their age. Spades are more interested in doing their jobs well than talking about them or becoming too emotionally involved with others. Spades can be stubborn and don’t like it when others try to control them. Spades find satisfaction in careers in construction, broadcasting and health care. And, as the symbol of transformation, Spades can also be successful in industries that deal with death, dying and mysticism.
