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.

I do not necessarily consider myself the best writer, and gods know that I make mistakes as well. However I read a LOT of resume's, as well as formal letters. I worked for years writing proposals,…Continue

I have always thought, that self initiation was possible. In fact, I still do... but only in extreme circumstances, and I don't think it's on the same level as a physical initiation.
Let me explain.
It was described to me, by members of an initiatory mystery tradition, that it is possible to self-initiate. But that it was *really* hard, and you needed the material, and it would take years... If ever. For something that could be done in mere hours with the…Continue
