Vendredi: Eight of Diamonds

Today's card usually signifies the beginning of a profitable undertaking.  Depending on the cards around it and the querent, however, that can mean just about anything.  Everyone’s idea of “success” is different and both communicating with the person you’re reading for and looking at the other cards in the spread will help you determine what is going on.

If there are two or more Clubs near the Eight of Diamonds, the indication is that the querent should be prepared to make a large change in order to succeed.  Whether they are considering going back to school, changing careers or making a move to a new city, now is the time to jump in with both feet. 

Are Hearts the predominant cards nearby?  The querent has become lucky in love.  It is time for them to take a leap of faith: get involved in a relationship, propose, accept a proposal, move in with their partner etc.  This relationship will strengthen and bolster the querent, quite possibly for the rest of their life.

When other cards from the Suit of Diamonds are present, the querent is a virtual Midas at this time.  Provided what they are up to is legal, encourage them to take that new job or start that much considered business.  Success will follow.

The only exception to the rule with the Eight of Diamonds is a preponderance of Spades around it.  This is the only case where the querent should proceed with caution.  As so often happens, I’ve found that usually this is a situation where the querent is also most eager to begin their new endeavor.  A word to the wise is important here; success will come but not without strife and the possible loss of a friend or, in the worst of scenarios, a falling out with family.  Vendredi heureux ~

Sounds like a pretty tricky (and potentially challenging) one Pauline...

Agreed; both the ready and the querent need to tread lightly here. I've found that people either hate or love this card with little in between.
