February ELEVENTH (As) the Day of IMPROVED COMFORT:
The Jack of Clubs Club
"We awoke one morning in September, and the world lurched on its axis." Jeb Bush
Many born on February 11 make a contribution toward improving the quality of life around them. Such improvements may be of a conceptual, inventive nature or of a distinctly hedonistic variety. In either case, the physical well-being of those close to them is likely to not only be looked after but improved.
The key concept for February 11 people is improvement, for they believe that things are never really as comfortable or efficient as they could be. Although comforts and luxuries may result from their efforts, most February 11 people themselves are not hedonists. It is only the less highly evolved individuals born on this day who give themselves over to an unremitting pursuit of pleasure. This can actually work out quite well for a time, but inevitably spells disappointments, jealousies, possessiveness and pain. For more highly evolved February 11 people, improving the lot of others is a creative task which they pursue with great ardor and dedication.
STRENGTHS: Helpful, Inventive, Appreciative
WEAKNESSES: Excessive, Over-involved, Insensitive
ADVICE: Try to pay more mind to what people really want, not just to what they appear to need. Allow others more privacy. Observe your ideals and principles but don't impose them on family or friends.
BORN ON THIS DAY: Thomas Alva Edison, Burt Reynolds, Lloyd Bentsen, King Farouk, Manuel Noriega, Sarah Palin, Jennifer Aniston, Tina Louise, Eva Gabor, Jeb Bush, Judge Roy Moore; Source: The Secret Language of Birthdays, Gary Goldschneider & Joost Elffers.
MEDITATION: The pursuit of pleasure ultimately involves the suffering of pain.

ACE of Spades - The Card of AMBITION: The Ace of Spades is the ancient symbol of the secret mysteries, the most spiritual card in the deck, and yet, also the most material. The A person usually has a life-long conflict between their material, worldly urges and their deep, past-life spiritual heritage. Their displacement and Karma Card, the Seven of Hearts, suggests trials in the realm of relationships. Their mission is to find the inner peace that comes through a life of service and dedication to higher principles. As their karma from previous births is discharged, they come to realize this and learn to follow the unwritten law of spiritual truth. In many ways they have put themselves upon the cross. Whenever they deviate from the law, or disregard their spiritual nature they seem to be unjustly punished. Those Ace of Spades who are mostly material- minded seem to have one problem after another. However, whenever they do follow the law, they are protected, finding the inner peace they seek through awareness of their wealth of spirit.
Your Karma Cards are the: Seven of Hearts - You owe something to this person and they reflect you in some way. Two of Clubs - This person owes you and you are their mirror in some way.

ACE of Spades (Swords) in Tarot
ACE of Spades: "Embodied in this card, which traditionally has been identified as a symbol of death, is also the key to the mystery of life. Unfortunately, for the majority of those who are identified with this card, the mystical meaning of this symbol is lost. If you belong to this category, this card becomes a symbol of labor, and all too often you try to solve all your problems by the sweat of your brow or through questionable schemes. But, as you read these lines, realize that your card is also a symbol of spiritual wisdom, and as the life pattern portrayed in your card is not a particularly easy one, keep this in mind. It may help you cope with and transcend the many challenges which appear to be part of your destiny. The temptation to indulge in bitter despair may be a real hazard. Remember, from the meta-physician's viewpoint, despair and inspiration are often considered to be a step apart. Discipline and vision are essential key words toward the overcoming of your problems. In the process, you may also become a source of inspiration to others." ~Arne Lein, What's Your Card?
AQUARIUS III - The Week of ACCEPTANCE February 8-15: The theme of acceptance runs strong in the lives of Aquarius III's. Some of them are hardheaded and not particularly open to unusual ideas and people but become increasingly tolerant as the years go by. Others are overly accepting from an early age and allow themselves to be unduly manipulated or influenced by stronger, more selfish types. The challenge for Aquarius III's is to remain open to the world while at the same time retaining the ability to be selective in screening out harmful influences.
Strengths: LIVELY - INVENTIVE - AFFECTIONATE
Weaknesses: IRRITATED - VULNERABLE - NEEDY
ADVICE: Accept your need for other people and cultivate meaningful social interaction. Remain open and accepting, but demand that others accept you as you are, too. Your psychic abilities are valuable - use them constructively. Beware of allowing rejection to lower your self-esteem.
AQUARIUS III NOTABLES: James Dean, Mia Farrow, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison, Jules Verne, Galileo, Charles Darwin, Jack Lemmon. Source: The Secret Language of Relationships Gary Goldschneider & Joost Elffers.
ACE of Spades "The Card of Ambition & Secrets" aka "The Death Card" and "The Card of Ambition" February 11th's moniker: the Day of IMPROVED COMFORT. I propose renaming today as "The road to hell is paved with good intentions." February 11th is the strangest one, of the seven Ace of Spades months. First, they are "know it all" Aquarians and that is a good thing - Abe Lincoln was an Aquarian but a KING of Diamonds "The Successful Business Person" - however, February 11th's Ego Card, is the NINE of Spades "The Universal Life Card." It's like they have all been to the mountain top and seen the promised land of IMPROVED COMFORT. Their -karma the SEVEN of Hearts "The Spiritual Love Card" confirms that somewhere along the line they did view the promised land and their +karma the TWO of Clubs "The Conversation Card" guarantees that we all are going to hear about what they saw.
Watching Jennifer Aniston portray Rachel Green on the television sitcom 'Friends' was a good thing. Thomas Edison's 1,039 patents definitely IMPROVED the COMFORT level for all of humanity. However, February 11th politicians seem to rub half of the populace the wrong way. Sarah Palin, Jeb Bush, even Judge Roy Moore, talk a good game but seriously, does anybody have a clue-key to their closet of Secrets?
