The Suit of Diamonds covers material aspects of life including work, business, trade, property, money and other material possessions. The positive aspects of the Suit of Diamonds include manifestation, realization, proof and prosperity. Diamonds deal with the physical or external level of consciousness and thus mirror the outer situations of your health, finances, work, and creativity. They have to do with what we make of our outer surroundings -how we create it, shape it, transform it and grow it. On a more esoteric level, Diamonds are associated with the ego, self-esteem and self-image. The negative aspects of the Suit of Diamonds include being possessive, greedy, overly materialistic, over-indulging and not exercising, not effectively managing, finances, being overly focused on career
Timing: When looking for time sensitive answers, Diamonds generally means very slow, meaning months or even years.
When things are stable in your life, expect to see some cards with the number four on them in your Cartomancy reading. This is the number of stability and consistency. There are four suits in the Cartomancy deck and four seasons on earth. This natural order of things is often disrupted for short bursts, but it is more likely to trend toward constancy than maintain any of the disruptive energy. Revolutions do not occur under the four, but they may be inspired by the long uninterrupted stasis that underscores it. The timeframe starts as a comforting security and consistency, but it can manifest as boredom, stagnation and resistance to change out of a fear of the unknown. For every side of the four that is peaceful and grounded, there is a shadow side of avoidance and outgrown attachments.
Upright Meanings: effort, hard work paying off, teamwork, achievements, collaboration, reward, growing, studying, commitment, recognition, dedication, hard work, attention to detail, approval, learning, tradesperson, quality, apprenticeship, determination, building on success, goals, abilities

When reversed, The Four of Diamonds veers sharply into the negative meanings of the card. Instead of being protective you become greedy, and you succumb to stinginess. You are haunted by certain fears of poverty which compels you to be nothing but materialistic. You are incredibly self-protective and defensive in terms of materialistic things, and you are not opening up to trust other people out of fear that they may be taking them away. On the other side, you might actually be spending too much money, and you need to start getting a proper hold of your actual financial resources. In any case, the card is capable of inducing both positive and negative associations, and you need to be very accountable and considerate if you get The Four of Diamonds in a reading.
