Hearts govern the first period of our lives and the first season of the year – the season of childhood. Family, love, home, relationships, emotions, and children all fall under the domain of Hearts. The Hearts suit signifies emotion. Birthdays identified with this suit find the greatest fulfillment in a positive expression of love, compassion and understanding. Hearts people, above all others, are best “suited” to demonstrate these attributes. People who are born as a Hearts card are child-like in nature because they are the children of the deck, often maintaining a youthful exuberance even into later years. They never really get old, not on the inside. They usually love children.
The Hearts suit governs 52 birthdays. Its ruling planets are Venus and Mercury. In his book, The Mystic Test Book, author and Grand Master of the Order of the Magi, Olney H. Richmond, said that while Mercury rules the Hearts from the standpoint of instinctive passion, Venus rules from the standpoint of emotional love and harmony.
