Diamonds and Piano Students
I teach online piano and my target audience is adults -- beginners or starting over. I ask for birthdates on my registration and I just went through them today to see what their birth cards are. About 75% of my students have a 2 of Diamonds BC! So, I guess trying to learn piano equates to gambling for them. This is very interesting.
Wow, this is very interesting. Thanks for sharing!
I'm a 2 of Diamonds birth card as well. From my perspective, I think rather than seeing learning the piano as a gamble, your students may see it as a new skill which is a worthwhile pursuit which they can dedicate themselves to long-term.
2 of Diamonds people have the 6 of Diamonds on Mars, so we tend to like long-term investments which will guarantee a rewarding pay-off for us, i.e becoming a pianist or improving long-term cognitive function/mental health, etc.
Thanks, that is a better explanation. Many of my students are 50's and up, and a universal goal with them is to maintain mental sharpness. I will say that the 2 of Diamonds group are the ones that struggle with the lessons, but stay with the program.
That´s a very fun fact.
@kam I don´t agree with your idea about the Mars card though, even if I have to realize that you run the 2 of Diamond yourself and must know how it feels. But the Mars card is the "flying away" position, so 2D should rather be an indication of someone consuming good things, high level experiences, and then leave them behind.
On the other hand you have QD on your ecliptica, and that for sure is about longterm, valuable things. Keepers.
To me it seems that you find good stuff, you work them to a high level and then you leave them behind. But the experience all in all (QH on the EC) is about value. The judgment aspect of the QH is important: It´s about choosing what works and what doesn´t. So I would expect to let go of many things too.
I would expect most of those piano students to quit, even if they reach quite a high level. "Good, but not good enough", "important, but not important enough" or something like that.
Looking at the Sun card JS and the Mercury card 4S it´s easy to see why they would choose a solo instrument, and a very steady, stable one. But on the other hand they very social and volatile on the Moon card, so there seems to be more to it.
I would like to quickly point out that the card of gambling is the 7 of Diamonds, as it represents multiple seeds laying on the ground, most of which will be eaten or destroyed. It's also the "one in a million shot" card and "the millionaire" card.
