The Devil in Me!

Well, surprising I am the Devil - I have often been referred to as "a little devil" but now this has been confirmed!
From Marion's blog (artmixter) http://wherelifemeetsart.blogspot.com
She made reference to Janine's blog of our Tarot inspirations.


You are The Devil

Materiality. Material Force. Material temptation; sometimes obsession

The Devil is often a great card for business success; hard work and ambition.

Perhaps the most misunderstood of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really "Satan" at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius. These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires. This is a card about ambitions; it is also synonymous with temptation and addiction. On the flip side, however, the card can be a warning to someone who is too restrained, someone who never allows themselves to get passionate or messy or wild - or ambitious. This, too, is a form of enslavement. As a person, the Devil can stand for a man of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, or just persuasive. This is not to say a bad man, but certainly a powerful man who is hard to resist. The important thing is to remember that any chain is freely worn. In most cases, you are enslaved only because you allow it.

How interesting. Do you know that the original meaning of the word "demon" comes from "daemon" and a daemon is a minor god?
