Question For Ernst
@rhiannon Yes he does, probably in the video about that card. It doesn´t mean that you are going to be filthy rich as a seven of Diamonds, I guess the opposite is more probable. But it is a card that once in a while works out in a millionaire fashion. More often it´s about limitations, of course. That´s how I remember it. I think "once in a while" is a key phrase here, it´s like winning on the lottery. No guarantees.
I had a reading by Carmina Amza a while ago and she reminded me about this, using the expression "millionaire card" when she was looking at my spread; as I say I have it as my Mercury card. And indeed it has worked a little like that for me; helpful spiritual hands gave me a profession that has allowed me to have a good material life for over 20 years, living wherever I want to, and it came to me in a rather miraculous way and a little against the odds. Now I´m curious whether I will have the same success with astrology, but that´s another story.
I think it may have to do with the inherent one in the number seven, one plus two plus three etc leading to 28, two plus eight = 10 = 1, so there are always new beginnings. Once in a while one of them becomes a hit. Maybe Ernst explains it in the video about the card.
Thanks for providing the real life examples. I looked back on my notes and he did not seem to mention it. Robert Camp calls it the millionaire card though so maybe Carmina has read his books.
No, I got it from Ernst, I remember him talking about it and also I knew about before being reminded about Carmina.
I also think he says that there is a slight irony to the expression. But still... "When you close one door, another one opens up". Seven of Diamonds are experts at closing doors and letting go, which at same time brings new opportunities. Endings are beginnings, as the numerology of seven confirms.
It´s always interesting to see how the cards work together in a spread. Like in the 5 of Clubs spread, the one I know the best since it´s the spread I embody: 7D on the Mercury card, finishing things. The big no-card, 3D, in the first position ("Thank you, but no thank you...". And the sacrificer KD in the 11th position. 5 of Clubs is so designed to let go of things! Which is extremely logic I think, if we are here to find out a better way?
The 7D Birth Card itself gets help by KD on the Saturn position to letting go of stuff. And 2D on the ecliptica to find new skills/opportunities/values!
