Bad Misunderstanding

The devil is one of the Gypsy Tarot cards which will perhaps understand less, like the death. In our modern world don’t like us to believe that there is a seed of evil or negativity within people. For this reason, you tend to think that everything bad that happens is the work of the devil, character to be feared and avoided. But the reality is that people do bad things not by a strange force that seizes control of their actions. Human beings are capable of evil because evil is expressing his own personality. Denying the malignant side of each is give it a power that then we will destroy.

The objective of the symbolism of the devil is mocking the two previous arcana major arcana family: lovers and the high priest. The most obvious is the mockery towards lovers. While the figure on lovers man and woman are blessed by divinity, expressed as a superior force represented by the angel, as can be seen in the devil, although here is the evil that curses the union, and they are the men and women United by heavy chains: the of lust and ignorance. The hand of the devil imitates the gesture of the high priest, but by altering its meaning. Wisdom, which embodies the devil is seeking to do harm to others, and which in fact cannot be called her wisdom. The devil is not a force that attacks from the outside, but a cancer that devours from inside.

When he is present, all, transforms, you perverts. To put ourselves at the service of the devil inside, we do also with other forces of the outside world that control us. We are allowing this way both our creativity and our energy to become against our. But there is no one to blame, but to ourselves. We should not think that we are victims, nor that we are helpless, but rather that this happens due to a lack of self-control. Indeed, if we look carefully the illustration of this Arcanum of the tarot gitano, we will see that strings are amply loose as to which persons may escape his yoke when they want to. It is necessary to only have the determination and courage to overcome to the most formidable enemy: ourselves.
