Meaning of the 2 of Clubs Sharing of Ideas,
Karmic Challenge - Fear of Cooperation.
TWO of Clubs: The Card of CONVERSATION: Among the people of this card you will note a wide variety. Many are fearful of everything, especially being alone, and will do everything in their power to make sure they are surrounded by people who admire them. All are sociable and enjoy good stimulating conversations. Then there are those who are reclusive and appear to need no one. In truth, they are just as afraid and always have one special person that they attach themselves to. The Ace of Spades Karma Card can mean an inner fear of death or change and this explains much of their behavior. However, these people are well endowed with many natural abilities and gifts. They can be exceptional in business and with people, preferring to work in partnership rather than alone. There is much protection surrounding this card and they all have much to be grateful for. If they simply recognize the abundance in their lives, they will help to dispel their underlying fear that can do so much damage.
Your Karma Cards are the: Ace of Spades - You owe something to this person and they reflect you in some way. King of Hearts - This person owes you and you are their mirror in some way.
Issues Concerning Relationships: Some of the most physically beautiful,attractive and intelligent people are (2c) and one would usually look at them and think they could have almost anyone they desired. It is a mystery in some cases why they choose the people with whom they end up. This is more a trait in the female (2c) than the males. Their love relationships are more a reflection of their state of inner wellness and self-love than of any other factor. If their inherent fear has not been recognized and confronted, they will often settle for anyone, just to avoid being alone, or for someone who is abusive, psychotic or weird in some way. This can lead to co-dependent and other undesirable relationships. The remedy for the (2c) is to face that deep fear that is often haunting them. 'We have nothing to fear but fear itself' and this is applicable to the (2c). For many of them, they first need to admit it to themselves. They have to turn the lights on in that darkened room of their mind and face the monsters that lie hidden there. Those who do face it discover a new power within them, the power of the mystic that is revealed by the (As), the ancient symbol for secret knowledge. Discrimination in their choice of partner will bring them great rewards. This is one of those cards that can usually have anyone they want for a partner. They have more freedom of choice in this area because they themselves have a lot to offer. If they take some time to understand their impulses, needs, desires and feelings, they will attract a partner who is more loving and considerate, one who satisfies that (2c) urge for the perfect companion with whom they may share everything. (2c)
Male/Female Generalities: (2c) women get along well with both male Clubs and Diamonds. If they are willing to be a more at-home, child-raising wife, the Cub would probably make the best choice for a husband, especially the King of Clubs. With Diamond men, there is a strong romantic connection which brings pleasure, but probably not anything long lasting. (2c) men should take care around Heart women, with whom they share a challenging connection.
TWO of Clubs BIRTHDAYS: May 30 (Gemini), June 28 (Cancer), July 26 (Leo), August 24 (Virgo), September 22 (Virgo), October 20 (Libra), November 18 (Scorpio), December 16 (Sagittarius);

LEO-VIRGO CUSP: The Cusp of EXPOSURE - August 19-25: Those born on the Leo-Virgo cusp are an interesting blend of introvert and extrovert. Leo-Virgo people combine the practical, earthly qualities of Virgo with the more intuitive, fiery traits of Leo, producing quietly inspired individuals who keep their light within. Some Leo-Virgos give a muted, almost nondescript first impression while concealing more flamboyant tendencies; others come across as exhibitionistic but are actually sensitive, private types. They may hide certain personal qualities, or facts about themselves, for years, but their inner flamboyance will break out periodically in even the most introverted of those born in this period when one day they reveal themselves to the world, in full awareness of what they are doing. Many of them will come to realize that self-concealment is futile the more they try to hide, the more the world seems to take notice of them. By aiming to be more transparent, letting others see what they really are instead of hiding, Leo-Virgos will even out some of their swings between introverted and extroverted behavior.
Strengths: Self-Contained - Observant - Flamboyant
Weaknesses: Narcissistic - Secretive - Non-sharing
ADVICE: Don't blame the world for not recognizing you if you hide yourself away. Be more transparent - let people see what you are really like. Beware of keeping secrets even from yourself. Allow others in, to share in both your joys and sorrows.
