10 of diamonds birth card

Ten of Diamonds: The Financially Abundant Birth Card

15 NOV to 21 NOV

“All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney.

Success comes naturally for the ones under the influence of the Ten of Diamonds birth card. This card also resembles a very materialistic person that enjoys the luxuries that a wealthy life can provide. If anyone can build a life fulfilled with wealth, success, and accomplishments, it’s for sure the Ten of Diamonds. The urge to accomplish their goals drives them to try their hardest in every area of their life. They are remarkably talented in business and can make a handsome living.

The Ten of diamonds are also very spiritually enlightened and can reach their higher self if they rely on their intuition. It’s sporadic to see them pay more for something that isn’t worth the price as they tend to be extremely careful with how they spend their money. This also applies to generosity from other people. It might be challenging for them to accept that somebody else would do something for them voluntarily and without expecting something in return.

Personal Message: Your ambition to achieve what you desire is one of your drives for accomplishing your goals. You know how to keep your eyes on the price, and nothing will stop you from getting what you want out of life. Your determination makes other envy you. People look at you as an example to follow, and while this is an excellent place to be, it also makes you a little vulnerable. The way people treat you can lead you not to be able to trust other people’s intentions. When someone grants you a nice gesture, you tend to instantly believe that they have come with second intentions.

The feeling that people only get closer to you when they need something from you can be explained why relationships don’t come easy to you. It’s wise to protect yourself from harm’s way, but shutting the door to everyone who shows any interest in your well-being can push those beautiful connections away. Try to see beyond your fears and leave room to understand their genuine reasons. Past trust issues can be holding you back.
