February Sixteenth - The Day of Animation
: Those born on February 16 are spirited individuals, courageous and demonstrative, who bring life to whatever they take part in. They admire spontaneity and dislike plodding, measured or constrained behavior. Also, they instinctively recognize that flexibility is at the essence of life and that hardness and stiffness, an ability to change, presages that which dies away. The themes of birth, rebirth, foundation and innovation - in short, beginnings of all kinds - are central to their lives.
ADVICE: Learn to deal with the downside, accept it as a fact and then move on. Remember that everything has to come to an end sometime. Keep in mind that others may not be moving as fast as you, physically or mentally. Take time to be more deliberate.
Strengths: SPIRITED - LIFE-ORIENTED - SPONTAEOUS; Weaknesses: ABRUPT - TROUBLED - ERUPTIVE;
Notables: Margaux Hemingway, John McEnroe Edgar Bergen, Mario Pei, Sonny Bono, Max Baer, actors, writers, filmmakers, linguists and humanists.

Nine of Diamonds: The Card of Universal Values and The Giver's Card:
Nine of Diamonds people are here to let go and complete a major chapter in their evolution. This entails a lot of giving to others. If they have not heeded the call to give and let go of others, money, relationships, and love, their life can be filled with disappointment and remorse. Those on the positive side are philanthropic and generous, happy and productive. All have the opportunity to experience first hand, the heightened consciousness that comes from living a "universal" life. Despite losses from time to time, these people can do very well in business, especially when it involves selling or other creative enterprises. If they keep money in proper perspective they may even attain affluence. A disregard for the higher laws will inevitably result in misfortune and misery. They should be careful while driving and in taking other chances. They can be reckless. Marriage is usually karmic and often long lasting. The men should always beware of female Clubs cards.
Your Karma Cards are the: Queen of Diamonds - You owe something to this person and they reflect you in some way. Five of Diamonds - This person owes you and you are their mirror in some way.
NINE of Diamond birthdays: Jan 18, Feb 16, Mar 14, Apr 12, May 10, Jun 8, Jul 6, Aug 4, Sep 2.
