What Tarot Card Are You?

I thought this was interesting, since I’m writing a series of short stories based on the cards in the Major Arcana. Props to Catherine at The Fountain Pen where I saw this. Check out the daily verse from the Tao Te Ching while you’re there. That little book was a revelation for me in my last few years at high school.

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.

    Ain’t that the truth… 😉

  2. I’ve wanted to do this for the longest time … so thanks for putting it up on your blog.

    Hard work and ambition ring true of what we know of you here in this space.

    I pulled the Wheel of Fortune. I’d be happy with all the positives that it bodes!

  3. The Devil did surprise me – I was hoping for a “cool” card. If I switch my favourite colour from red to black in the questions (always a toss up for me, as you can tell from the site design!) then all of a sudden I’m The Hermit.
