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

Fives represent change and the need for change. The energy of Five changes the order of things for either good or bad. Unlike most other cards in Cartomancy where the Upright aspect is deemed to be more positive, the Five changes this pattern by being more positive when Reversed. Five just has to be different, or difficult! When Upright, it can be rigid and narrow as it resists change or struggles with it. When Reversed it becomes all-embracing and accepting. However, because Reversed Cards can be extreme, the conflict of the Upright can become intense. Alas, due to Five’s overriding erratic nature, both the Upright and Reverse aspect can bring great extremes. The orientation of Five dictates the manner in which it deals with or approaches change. The change brought about by Five is often unexpected or chaotic.
