Temptation…like reading tarot cards. You don’t know what your messing with.

Answer by Jamie
There are two interpretations of any tarot card. When you flip the card it is either upright or upside down (reversed). Upright generally means you are willingly bonding yourself to a situation where destruction is inevitable. You are entering or engaged in something that will do you harm and eventually strip you of any merit or choice in the outcome. The devil card represents that you are strong and wise enough at this point to become either a great instrument of evil, or a great promoter of good. The reversed meaning ranges from illness to jealousy. It is a warning not to take the easy way out for it will surely harm you only to benefit another. I tend to pull the devil card for those who have a drug or addiction problem often as well.

The devil card represents bondage. It doesn’t signify the devil itself

Answer by Biddy_Tarot
The card of the Devil represents those hidden forces of negativity that constrain us and deceive us into thinking we are imprisoned by external forces. The Devil is an inner force within each of us, he is an embodiment of our fears, addictions, and other harmful impulses. The people chained at his feet are entranced with the paralysing fear of his illusory power and therefore stand still with hopelessness and a numb appearance. However, the chains hang loosely around their necks, an indication that freedom is within their grasp if they can only break free of the hypnotic attachment to the temptations offered by the Devil. The Devil is a master of deception and illusion. The chains he binds us with are not real, we have freely given him any power he has over us. When we encounter the Devil in a reading, we must ask ourselves where we are “stuck” in life. We often fall prey to despair and the thought that we are controlled by external forces but we forge our own chains of imprisonment and powerlessness. What are the addictions or attachments restraining you from experiencing the freedom of the Fool? Are you giving yourself over to the illusion of helplessness and despair? You have the power within to set yourself free from the bondage of the Devil. What can you do to free yourself from his deception?

How is it when this question doesn’t pertain to religion people answered it thoroughly as if it is pertain to religion, but when I ask a question (How does Paleoanthropology link with modern evolutionary synthesis?), people quick to write that it doesn’t belong in this category?

Tarot cards are a complete and utter hoax. They simply serve to demonstrate and underscore some people’s gullibility.

Tarot cards were created in mid 15th century Italy and consist of two parts: a standard pack of Latin suited playing cards and a fifth suit of picture cards. These extra cards took as their theme a triumph procession, hence their early name of tionfi, meaning triumphs and from which we get our word trump. And that is what they were, a suit of fixed trump cards for a family of card games that continues to be played to this day.

It was at the end of the 18th century that a Parisian occultist, ignorant of the cards’ real history, published the claim that they came from ancient Egypt and could be used for divination (fortune telling). For about 100 years, the notion of an occult tarot was limited to France but at the end of the 19th century, some British occultists began to import them, along with translations of the French occultists. British occultists then elaborated upon those theories and redesigned the cards to better reflect their beliefs. The important ones were the Rider Waite Smith, the Crowley Harris Thoth, and the Golden Dawn.

During the 1970s, with the rise of new ageism, people began to further redesign the cards with a variety of themes and to better reflect numerous spiritual and occult beliefs, though these continued to reflect the symbolism added in the earlier occult packs.

As to whether divination with tarot cards works, that is a question that you must decide yourself. However, without an occult origin, the meanings that have been attributed to the cards have largely been arbitrary – or at least personal. I’m a skeptic myself but if you believe in divination, then it would make sense to me for you to apply whatever meanings you feel are correct – no one is in a position to dictate to you what they should or should not be.

As for the games. Well, these are (with only a couple of exceptions) what we call point-trick games. This means that like whist and bridge, cards are won in tricks but unlike those games different cards carry different point values, hence it is not the number of tricks won that wins the game but the number of card points in them. There are numerous games being played in Italy, Sicily, Switzerland, Czechoslovakia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Ukraine, Austria, Germany, France and Denmark.
