@astroalex So, 10 of Clubs. Often prominent and succesful people as you say, but above all: skilfull. They don´t always gain fame, after all one of 30 persons is a 10 of Clubs so there´s not room enough in the VIP-lounges for all of them. But they are always active and skilfull and there is a magician´s quality to them. Multitasking is there thing. Just look at Madonna: she sings and dances, she writes her own music and lyrics, she´s manages her own business succesfully, she acts, she´s into kabala and she´s a mother. Or a guy I told about in the forum a couple of weeks ago who also seems to be a 10 of Clubs (depending on his birth time), Jan Lindblad: He had a world record in juggling with balls, he was a professional whistler and a bird whistler, but above all he was a reknowned nature documentarists who inspired, among others, David Attenborough. Besides being a professional rope walker...

Spades are about life, to exist and to have a body. Hearts are about connections, relations. After being gifted with a body and relationships we need something to deal with the consequences. That´s where the club suit comes in. So anything that we use to manage life, in the outer world (work, business etc) or the inner (strategy and philosophy) are indicated by the clubs. Numerological wise 10 stands for "everything", it´s a smorgasbord of anything in that suit. So that alone explains why 10 of Clubs people tend to be so skilfull. They are free to use any club from 1-9. The Ace represents new ideas, the two connecting to knowledge (finding a library for example), three: independent thinking and expension of the mind, four: being secure in your knowledge, good foundation. Etc. Seven is the repairman; if something doesn´t work, Seven of Clubs (Ernst´s BC) finds the flaw and repairs it. Unsurprisingly the tarot card related to 10 of Clubs is the Magician, which should be seen more as a juggler though; a person doing tricks; and at least in the tarot deck of Marseille it´s rather a juggler that is depicted. So it´s more about skilfullness and multitasing than actual magic, although there is a truly magical potential too related to 10 of Clubs, as we will see later. 10 of Clubs knows how to focus on one ball at a time and not worry about those in the air.

The underlying card, an indication of a skill or talent that you bring from an earlier existence, something that you innately just have and probably never reflect upon, is Jack of Spades. The orphant card, giving the kind of independence that is forced on you by life. Mum and dad just died and you don´t have any other choice than to survive as best as you can - that´s the experience of Jack of Spades. Which really shines through in Madonna´s life, I think. As said, she prefers to manage her own business - after all, who can you ever trust?

The overlying card, indicating your natural tendency, what you are gravitating towards through life, and this I find kind of touching: 4 of Spades. A very simple card which is all about being secure in oneself. So out of the experience of being left alone in a hostile world (Jack of Spades) comes the experience of becoming a juggler, answering to the cravings of life being extremely active and in many fields. Working on a circus (Jan Lindblad litterarily did that), facing the audience night after night, finding no constant home (10 of Clubs often have a poor homelife as you will see). After that all you want is to relax in a safe place. And just being yourself. No more masks, no more show, "I am who I am." 4 of Spades is also a card of of authenticity, 4 of Spades has no need for to shine or be anything special. "I am who I am." The older you get, as a 10 of Clubs, the less is your need for to shine. Maybe you have already done that, earlier in life.

The Ecliptica card is complementary to the Birth Card, the latter indicating who we are, our essence, the EC telling us what path we have to walk. In the case of 10 of Clubs it´s a difficult one, but it´s a path that guides them to the 4 of Spades that they are finally here to become. It´s 7 of Hearts. 7 is Saturn´s number, meaning Game over. (Also an indication that it´s time to start all over, since the numbers leading to 7, from 1 to 7, sum up 28, 2 + 8 = 10, 1 + 0 = 1, so a 7 has inherently a 1, a new beginning within it.) Hearts represent emotional connections. So 10 of Clubs, you could say, is on the path of failing love. That´s of course only the worldly perspective, from a spiritual point of view it´s about overcoming the need for limited earthly love and acceptance of the cycles of life. Finding peace, even. (Which is a must for to become a successful 4 of Spades). The red sevens are related to the Death card in the tarot, so 10 of Clubs walk on a path of death. Meaning that they burn through tough experiences, especially in the heart´s field - just have a look at Madonna and her personal history. To be able to do that they have the most powerful helper on their Moon card - death himself, represented by the King of Spades. The Moon card is an indication of what we naturally attract but also how we adapt to our environment, and adapt it to us. King of Spades is one of the three extra powerful fixed cards and represents the final part of our lives, from decline to actual death (of the body or of the ego). Ernst relates it to Shiva. This means that death for 10 of Clubs tends to be a very natural thing and that they have a high capacity for dealing with losses. It also tends to give them a lot of charisma. I think it´s fair to say that you can see this death quality in Madonna´s performances, and as for my example Jan Lindblad he prefered to film the big cats on the ground, without any shelter or protection; you can also see him on youtube wrestling an anaconda.

So that, more or less is the foundation... But there are still eleven more cards to analyze, so there is a lot more to it.

There is a natural spirituality to 10 of Clubs, as indicated by their Uranus card, 7 of Diamonds. The Uranus card tells us about an undestructible part of us, something that has to shine through no matter what, and 7 of Diamonds is another red seven, aso nother death card. It gives a natural understanding for the limitations of this world (diamonds represent values and concrete things) and orients our minds - or beings - towards God. 7 of Diamonds is one of four double-faced, one could say, cards in the deck; it´s other aspect is 9 of Hearts, which stands for divine love. So the 10 of Clubs person knows intuitively that behind the many manifestations of life in this world, there is a more real world, and that there is love behind it. This makes it a lot easier to accept losses, of course. I guess 10s of Clubs often are the kinds of people that find an earthquake thrilling and refreshing.

Ten of Clubs have good clubs. Curiosity and inspiration, focus, is the foundation of their life strategy, as indicated by Ace of Clubs on the Mercury card. They have an easy time adjusting and rethinking, basically: they are intelligent, as indicated by 5 of Clubs in the Saturn position. They adapt effortlessly to new circumstances.

The Sun card is about "real" magic you could say. It´s 8 of Diamonds, and it´s the energy that rules their life more than anything else during their first 52 years of life. I wrote a little about this card in the text about QS. Eights are mirrors, diamonds are the concrete world; 8 of Diamonds lets the person manifest in the outer world what they have within. Often it´s seen as cheer luck, but it´s not, it´s a capacity that comes from being alined.

3 of Hearts in the Mars card - here they grow in love, develops connections to the outer world, be it to humans or to nature, or art. They want to know it all, to connect to everyone and everything.

10 of Spades on the Venus card - they look for authenticity in their relationship and are not afraid for problems or problematic people; rather they tend to attract them. Jan Lindblad literary raised two tigers at home in a Swedish forest. Venus is also an indication for homes, of course. Observe the beauty of the system, how the cards work together: With death (King of Spades) on your Moon card you are not afraid of challenges in the Venus field, logically. When your natural tendency in life is towards authenticity (4S as the overlying card) you learn through authentic people in your life. When your Ecliptic card is all about accepting love´s limitation, you need to experience Venus through hardships.

I´ll leave it there for now.

PD. While doing this it really struck me how well the circus metaphore mirrors this spread. Multitasking. A world of illusions (7D on the Uranus card) and magic (8D on the Sun card), love for the audience (3H on the Mars card), new tricks (A of Clubs on the Mercury card), the show must go on/adaptation (of the show) to all circumnstances (5C on the Saturn card), death awareness (King of Spades on the Moon card, 7H and 7D), living life to it´s fullest/a moment is a lifetime, constant break ups (7D on the Uranus card), living a relationship to it´s fullest/living a relationsship in the moment (to the audience)  (7H on the Ecliptica) no cosy home (10 spades on the Venus card), depend on yourself/survival (Jack of Spades as the underlying card) and, as you get older: just wanting to sit in front of the fire being yourself, end of the show (4S overlying card).

@meyes Yes, it really does! 🙂

Also it fits the Magician, (supposedly Aleister Crawley), Entertainer (Madonna, Justin Bieber). Or the Star Athlete/Great Champion (Novak Djokovic) or in a more modern sense, The YouTuber/Gamer.

@astroalex Ha! At least Novak Djokovic seems to verify my idea about 10 of Clubs "loving earth quakes". He seems to be drawn to conflicts. Might have many reasons of course, one would have to study his horoscope/spread. But still.

@meyes Well, he has Rahu/Moon/Jupiter in the 4th in Aries and DB Mars in the 7th. So maybe that explains it.

@astroalex That combination - Rahu/Moon/Jupiter is especially interesting for me, since my youngest son has it. DB Mars, for sure, says a lot.

Of course the 7D doesn´t play out in a conflctious way, typically, on the contrary people with 7D as a birth card tends to be really, really nice.

So I think that what you bring up is more related to his conflictious way. 7D just contributes, perhaps, to his lack of fear. I think there is a tendency in 7D to make things breaking apart. To enjoy destruction. A longing for change. Not necessarily in a conflictious way, though. It´s my Mercury card (the strategist, how we understand the game of life), so I should know...

@meyes Interesting! I often imagine a strange world where everyone is their true self and everyone works together naturally, without any conflict. In a way forgetting all the social status/power struggles of this "solid" world and moving to a natural harmonious co-existence. Could this be a 7 of Diamonds/9 of Hearts thing?

As for Novak, he has Mars in the Moon card, so he attracts conflicts. And maybe that makes him a little bit of a public enemy (Mars) sometimes, but that just pumps him up somehow. 🙂

@astroalex Well, to some degree maybe it is, I mean 7 of Diamonds in some way sees through thing. To me it gives a feeling of emptiness that I have had since I was a child, a natural feeling of world being an empty place in some way, or an illusion. That the real world is in some way beyond. (Of course I can´t be sure that it is the 7 of Diamonds that gives me that feeling, and then I have the 3 of Diamonds on the Sun card that tends to be in tune with "energy" or "spirit", so perhaps it´s a combination of those two cards.) But it´s definitely a card that sees through, so why not the social contract as well?

But I also see a longing for authenticity in the 10 of Clubs spread in the fact that your Venus card is a 10 of Spades - you are not afraid of problems in relations, as long as your partner is TRUE and AUTHENTIC. As a matter of fact, them being in some way problematic, or cause problems for you, seems to be the very stamp of authenticity for you. And your overlying card again: 4 of Spades. "I am who I am." The old circus artist who has been up on the stage so many times, received so many applauses and sometimes some rotten tomatoes... He has nothing to hide anymore, he just wanna be.

As for Novak: True, Mars in Cancer is never ideal. I think that we are many that have a secret (or not) admiration for that part of Djokovic though; I kind of like him I must say. But again: I tend to like people stirring the pot.

Mattias

PD. And, above all: King of Spades is all about seeing through all kind of BS. There it is, what you just mentioned! The Moon is all about the environment. KS is the "no bullshit card" per excellence. So: a realistic view of the environment. Of which society is a big part. Seeing through the masks.

@astroalex And now, when I look at it, I see that there is at least one other factor pointing strongly towards the same thing: truthfulness, authenticity. And that is the Neptune card, that I didn´t mention: 5 of Spades.

The Neptune card indicates a longterm realization of some kind. Ernst compares it to a pregnancy. It´s something we really connect to life, or to God through, and we want to become or manifest that thing. 5 of Spades is "my best self". The black fives are related to the Judgement card in the tarot deck, so here the 10 of Clubs judges him- or herself. "Do I do well?" "Can I do better?" It´s all about authenticity. No masks. And of course - if you don´t accept yourself wearing a mask, you are not going to accept masks on others.

So yes, it´s strongly indicated.

Also the Rahu card, 3 of Diamonds, is the card of perfectionism. The Rahu experience is hard to get aboard and to master, but if we do it we can be really really good at it. In a way it´s the best horse in the stable; it´s just that we can´t ride it until we are 42, and after that it´s hard... So 10 of Diamonds can really work hard to achieve the best, although earlier in life that experience for some reasons tend to betray them. 3 of Diamonds is also about connection to "energy", "spirit", "mystery"; there is truth in such a connection. Especially it gives a strong sense of what doesn´t work, so it´s good for detecting falsehood.

@meyes Yes, with 5 of Spades on Neptune and two self factors (Sun and AK) in 5 of Clubs, I can be self-judgemental and self-critical. Mainly on my physical appearance, because Saturn is in my Asc. card. So accepting myself for how I am in that regard is still a challenge. And this translates to others. 

It's interesting that you mentioned masks, considering the recent global events that made people wear them. They removed the mandates in my country but there are still people who wear them, even outside. And it boggles my mind.

@astroalex I´m a black five myself as said (5C) and have 5S on my Jupiter card, with Sun and Mercury in it. This makes me spin... I have 3 of Diamonds as my Sun card, which is the perfectionist and the big "no" card, so I say no to many things. "That´s not for me." But I now start to see how that works together with my two black fives, both judgement cards, to crave authenticity. Can´t do anything that´s not "me", and like you I avoid situations where you have to wear a mask, physically or metaphorically.

@meyes Oh, that's a good point on the 3 of Diamonds. 🙂 Recently I realised that I need to learn how to say no to things, especially when it comes to 7th house stuff, where my Rahu is. And seek opportunities that allow me to bring more of my own talents and intelligence, and thus develop more self-worth in that area of life. This will probably reduce or even eliminate any fear.

@meyes You are correct abaout the Venus card. However, for me there is a fear, because I have Rahu there. But the more I accept myself for how I am, the more I accept others that way. And King of Spades is my DK card, so more of the same. I don't like all these games that many people play with eachother in relationshps. But I realize that it's very difficult to be okay with ourselves and be completely open/naked with others.

@astroalex Yep, that´s how it works (but you seem to know that already). I have Saturn and Rahu in Seven of Hearts Mars card which normally helps a Five of Clubs to leave relationships in a harmonious way. For me that has been a struggle.

@astroalex Yes, and I heard Ernst saying something in a video the other day: That the Mars card and Mars seem to be the main indicator of how good life a person is capable of to create for themselves. For me my last 20 years have been a very tough struggle to get things in place; I broke up from a marriage in Chile in the most painful way, I spent years in court and was finally even denied divorce in a parodic way. Had to leave leaving a 12 year old daughter behind. And after that I was glued to my next partner for too many years for being foreigner in a second country, both of us ,and having the responsability for two kids. That stress almost killed me, literally, even though it ended harmoniously (7H in a Mars position is a cat that in some way always ends up on his paws); my ex is now my best friend, our kids are fine and we deeply respect each other as parents. So that´s how that played out. Plus a lot of fighting with my natal family, that has kind of ended well, since my 16 year old son lives with them. But my mother still doesn´t want me to attend her funeral, she says... So yes, a painful card indeed.

@astroalex Chile. When we got there divorce wasn´t even legal. People had to find a way to cancel their marriages. To prove that they actually never happened. In my case the judge asked the witnesses - her family - about our life in Sweden, which was completely irrelevant since the marriage was registered in Chile just weeks before moving there, so everything before that was of no relevance, legally speaking. They told her we had lived in a castle, practically, I was never heard.... So I would have had to compensate her for that or stay married to her forever (maintaining her, of course). That was the bullet that killed my faith in chilean justice and I decided to do nothing and use the atomic bomb I´d avoided to use for so many years: stop paying anything at all. It worked for two years until she took legal action and I had to leave the country. I live in Mexico since 2013.

Rough, yes. Extremely stressful. I had a wonderful spiritual guide though, that helped me through it. Otherwise I wonder whether I´d survived; fighting alone in a false and f***d-up country in a language you hardly master.  Now I do, but back then my Spanish wasn´t that good.

(Later I learnt that the lawyers in Chile as a rule charge foreigners double fee, for example... You can imagine the emotional stress when you realize that your only ally has been screwing you all the time. And we are not talking about pocket money.)

Three years ago, on my last vision quest (out of four), I had a vision for my life though, and it told me about good times to come, happiness to arrive. Not for free though; it had to come from within. Well, it´s happening.

@astroalex BUT if you really want to understand the indication - Sa/Ra in 7H on the Mars card - you have to go further back in my personal history and realize that indeed, as Ernst says, an afflicted Seven of Hearts is an indication for codependence. And that was the root of the legal chaos in Chile. My relationship with my first wife was built on codependence = no true love = I played the hero´s role in the relationship. So when I decided to leave her I left her on a far worse place than where she had been when we met. That was the cause of it, and in a way I must say that I deserved what happened, for not having been truthful towards her. My daughter didn´t deserve to loose her father though, but that´s another story.

@meyes Heartbraking indeed. I'm happy to hear that you are moving towards better days! Thank you for sharing the story of your experience. It is very fitting for me, because I have the 7 of Hearts on the Ecliptic today and, as you already know, in the Birth Spread.

@astroalex There you go... My fiancé, who is 44, has it on her Rahu card. 7 of Hearts that is. Her daughters went to visit their father in another part of the country two years ago and haven´t returned since... Complete surrender is her challenge.....

One thing that I´ve discovered through these experience is that where there is pain there is beauty. Or the other way round: you don´t see any true beauty without experiencing pain. The dragonfly´s life is so short...

Isn´t that what the circus experience wants to teach us too, at the end of the day? Life consists of moments.

@meyes Yes, totally! Pain and Beauty reflect eachother. Without one, the other would probably not exist, as they come from the same place. Yin and Yang in one of their many dances.
