January TWENTY-SECOND (5d) the Day of the VORTEX:
The Jack of Clubs Club
"There will never be talking pictures." D.W. Griffith
Emotional control is clearly a central issue for January 22 people. They must come to realize that they can be more effective in reaching others when their passion is tempered and allows people more room to breathe. Friends, lovers and family generally turn off when January 22 explosiveness threatens, viewing outbursts not as emotional richness but as emotional disturbance.
Diamonds - Values - Security – Dharma
5 of Diamonds - Fluctuation in Finances
FIVE of Diamonds The SALESPERSON Card - This card has its share of challenges and its share of gifts. Like all fives, they dislike routine and abhor anything that pretends to limit their freedom. They can be perpetual wanderers, never settling down for anything long enough to make it pay off. This includes their work and relationships. All fives have an inner restlessness, but they truly want to accomplish something of value and stability in their lives. They are inherently spiritual and know what is of true value. The challenge comes in practicing what they know. They come into this life with a certain amount of karma which often takes considerable hard work to discharge. If they are lazy, there will be many problems. They must practice what they know and do what it takes to get the job done without shirking responsibility. They make great sales people and they have tried many things in life and know how to relate to anyone on their own level. Their inner truth is their guiding light.
FIVE of Diamonds (Pentacles) in Tarot
FIVE of Diamonds: Money consciousness is strong for these people, and when it's regarded as a means, not an end, finances are usually at their disposal. Limitations and restrictions in regard to their financial security come through troubling health, or a hampering physical affliction; through difficulties with children, or through a loved one who is faced with trials that cannot be shared. The 5 of Diamonds must choose their course and stick to it. They must seek a place in life where they can forget themselves and make a contribution, and they must learn to abolish their constant uncertainty. They must also guard against creating a separate reality that's out of sync with the reality of those around them! http://www.metasymbology.com/
CAPRICORN-AQUARIUS CUSP - The Cusp of MYSTERY and IMAGINATION January 17-22: The vivid and expressive individuals born on the Capricorn-Aquarius cusp generate excitement wherever they go. Unable to keep out of action very long, they make their presence felt almost immediately on entering a room. Their viewpoints tend to be controversial, and whether conservative or radical are highly stimulating, often because of the dramatic way they are delivered. Capricorn-Aquarians' interest in the poor and downtrodden is more than theoretical: most of them will not hesitate to make direct contributions of time, money or energy to help anyone less fortunate than themselves. At the same time, however, they have little sympathy for those they see as freeloaders or parasites, able to pull their own weight but refusing to do so.
Strengths: EXCITING - ENTERTAINING - LIGHTHEARTED
Weaknesses: CHAOTIC - DIFFICULT - ERUPTIVE
Advice: You must find an outlet for your creative energy. Communicate what you experience. Try not to be discouraged by lack of understanding, ignorance or negative criticism. Don't go off the deep end, but, rather, find those who understand and appreciate you.

The January 22 FIVE of Diamonds "the Salesman" make great actors because they live work and have there being in the Cerebral and present their findings in a Limbic format. Their KING of Clubs "Master of Knowledge" ensures that nothing slips by their Owl's Upper Left-Brain. The +karma (hidden talent), the THREE of Clubs "Writer's Card," think Stephen King, triggers their imagination. 'Who They Truly Are,' the FIVE of Diamonds, Self, welcomes new adventures and sensing - no make that - knowing that they can sell anything, anywhere, anytime, they are compelled by their -karma NINE of Diamonds "Giver of Value," think Obama, they are always looking for their next part. Considering all of the above talents I nominate the late Sir John Vincent Hurt, as the Academy Award Winner of January 22 personages.
