This Thanksgiving 11/22/18 marks the 55th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. A date of death is also a birthday into heaven, which means that his birthday into heaven card is the Jack of Hearts. November 22nd also has two planetary ruling cards, the Two of Hearts and the Two of Diamonds. The Jack of Hearts is the card of self sacrifice. It sits in the Life Spread in the fourth position of the second full row. JFK's daughter Caroline Bouvier Kennedy was born on 11/27/1957, which means that her birth card is the Six of Hearts and her planetary ruling card is the Eight of Clubs. Both of these cards are in the third full row of the Life Spread. The Six of Hearts is diagonally one space away from the Jack of Hearts, and the Eight of Clubs is vertically one space away from the Two of Hearts. Cards that are one space away from each other can be thought of as simply very close to each other. Caroline's family cards are also interesting. Her husband Edwin Schlossberg was born on 7/19/1945, which means that his birth card is the Nine of Clubs and his planetary ruling card is the Jack of Hearts. Note that the Nine of Clubs and the Jack of Hearts are one space away from each in the Life Spread. Caroline and Edwin's children are Rose Schlossberg (born 6/25/1988, birth card Five of Clubs, planetary ruling card Ten of Spades); Tatiana Schlossberg (born 5/5/1990, birth card Ace of Spades, planetary ruling card Seven of Diamonds); and Jack Schlossberg (born 1/19/1993, birth card Eight of Diamonds, planetary ruling card Ten of Spades). Both of Rose's cards and one of Jack's cards are very close to the Jack of Hearts. Jack's birth card the Eight of Diamonds is two spaces away from the Jack of Hearts. Cards that are two spaces away from each other can be thought of as very friendly with each other.
John F. Kennedy Jr. was born on 11/25/1960 (birth card Eight of Hearts, planetary ruling card Ten of Clubs) and died on 7/16/1999 (birthday into heaven card Queen of Clubs, planetary ruling card Ace of Clubs). The Eight of Hearts is vertically five spaces away from the Jack of Hearts. Cards that are five spaces away from each other can be thought of as rock steady influences for each other.
JFK was born on 5/29/1917 (birth card Three of Clubs, planetary ruling card Three of Spades). His sister Eunice Kennedy Shriver was born on 7/10/1921 (birth card Five of Diamonds, planetary ruling card Seven of Clubs) and died on 8/11/2009 (birthday into heaven card Two of Diamonds, planetary ruling card Two of Diamonds). The Three of Clubs and the Five of Diamonds are four spaces away from each other in the fifth full row of the Life Spread. Cards that are four spaces apart can be thought of as lucky for each other. The Three of Spades and the Five of Diamonds are three spaces away from each other. Cards that are three spaces apart can be thought of as change agents for each other. These relationships appear to be very true based on the recent biography entitled "Eunice: The Kennedy Who Changed The World".
Today is August 12, 2015, an Ace of Diamonds day and the 11th anniversary of my visit to the Western Wall in Jerusalem. I had been looking forward to touching the wall and was expecting a magical experience. As I touched the wall, a strong vision of my paternal grandfather’s face appeared before my eyes. I was quite surprised, as he died when I was only 8 years old and I owned only one photo of him. I shrugged it off, but he kept following me around the rest of the time in Israel. From Yad Vashem to the Dead Sea to King Solomon’s Pillars, wherever I went, there he was! I always thought that my father and grandfather were my only paternal side relatives, as my father was an only child and my grandfather was a widower (my grandmother died when my father was only 5 years old). My father died in 1996, so the only hope for more information was to call my mother and ask if she had any files left behind by my father. She said that she did, but she was ready to discard them because they were falling apart. I asked her to please bundle everything up and send them to me. When the package arrived, the first piece of paper I saw was my grandmother’s ship transport ticket from Poland to America in March of 1921. The name of her town of origin, Radzilow, Poland, was on the ticket. After googling Radzilow, I discovered radzilow.com, a memorial to a once vibrant Jewish Shtetl. The webmaster invited people with roots in the town to e-mail him for more information, so I scanned in the ship transport ticket and dropped him a note. He wrote back within a few hours and said OMG, you finally found my website! We’ll be in touch soon. A few days later, I received a call from a young man in England named Saul Marks. He excitedly started the conversation with “Let me tell you how we are related. Your grandmother and my great grandmother were sisters!” It turns out that Saul is a professional genealogist, and he had family trees all the way back to the 1700’s in Radzilow. So I went from thinking I had no relatives on my father’s side to learning about dozens of relatives in England, Israel, and the U.S., literally overnight! But the very best part of this story is the e-mail Saul shared with me that he sent to a fellow genealogist in America. It was dated August 12, 2004, the same day I touched the wall and saw the vision of my grandfather’s face. The e-mail was asking for help in solving the frustrating mystery of Moszk and Szejna Rajchel Kowalski’s descendants in America! Thank you God! Everything is from Hashem, but it isn’t always this obvious!
In July of 2009, I purchased a book by Robert Lee Camp entitled "Cards of Your Destiny - What Your Birthday Reveals About You and Your Past, Present, and Future". I began by doing card readings for myself, and then expanded to family and friends. I am now ready to do card readings for a wider audience. My birthday is July 4, 1956, which means that I am a 59 year old Jack of Diamonds, and that my long range card this year is the Ace of Clubs. Aces are powerful indicators of new beginnings, and tomorrow's journal entry will be on August 12th, an Ace of Diamonds day!
