8 of Diamonds Day Jimmy Carter by Thomas Morrell ©2016
The Card for October 1st is the 8 of Diamonds and is also the Birthday for former President Jimmy Carter, 39th President of the United States. The 8 of Diamonds is the Card of financial strength and power, but also strength in values and worth. 8 is the Number of Saturn which is from where it gets its power and strength. Restrictions and discipline are also associated with this Number. With its position in the Life Plate in the center of the Crown Line, many receive much recognition and honor, while others use it to seek attention and want to be the star of the show. The name* Donald Trump calculates out to an 8 of Diamonds and how he express that Card is quite obvious.
Being born under the Sign of Libra, the Natal Venus Card would come into play and in this position is the 3 of Hearts. While this is a very creative and expressive influence, 3 is the Number of Jupiter which governs royalty and wealth. Many times those who are a Number 3 Card, or have it as one of their Planetary Sign, or Planetary Number Cards can be leaders in the field under which the Suit would rule and in this case – people.
Born on a Number 1 day would also give President Carter ambition, drive and leadership qualities. Using the Chaldean Number System planetary associations, 4 would be the secondary Number of the Sun/1 and would point to his Natal Uranus Card as his Planetary Number Card. In this position is the 5 of Clubs, making him quick, adaptable and falling in the Saturn Column/Mercury Line would make him an authority in knowledge and communication. He used this quite gracefully being a Libra in negotiating in such things as The Camp David Accords which were signed by Egyptian President Anwar El Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin.
The Inner Soul Card for the 8 of Diamonds is the Queen of Spades which is reflected in his deep sense of high mastery in his work and life in the area of service. His Outer Soul Card is the 7 of Clubs, the Card of spiritual knowledge and communication – he is a deeply religious man.
Many 8 of Diamonds people have more difficult life paths as they are choosing the attention/material side of the Card. President Jimmy Carter has exemplified the rare, higher side of this Symbol and continues to do so today by speaking out against injustice and through his work with Habitat for Humanity.
