Tuesday’s Tarot

Many people have a visceral reaction at the very mention of the word Devil.  Within the tarot context, The Devil card evokes Dionysus.  Since you all watch True Blood, we needn’t get remedial or redundant with the history of the horned God.  The Devil gets blamed for human enslavement to drugs, sex, and debauchery.  Look closely: once you get past the Vulcan salute, the slaves’ restraints hang loosely.  They could leave; they choose to stay, just as many of us stay voluntarily enslaved to our own basest desires.  No surprise, Capricorn, this is your card: aggressive, masculine, power and money-hungry.  When The Devil visits, check your ego.  When reversed,  relax with the anti-fun, rigid inflexibility.
