The Devil ~ Time To Dance With Your Dark Side!
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is The Devil, representing: Sexuality, creativity, shadows and fear. The Devil is perhaps the most misunderstood card of the deck, its very presence evoking images of black magic, witchcraft--even evil. But if you can look past all the superstitious mumbo-jumbo, you will recognize a powerful life force, a transformative energy that can only come from embracing your dark side!
So what is the dark side? It is the most hidden parts of yourself, the aspects of your being that you don’t feel comfortable and constantly wrestle with. It could be guilt, shame, obsession, addiction…it’s your shadow…the parts of you that make you feel out of control. Yet, it’s within the darkness element of your being that you will see your truest self…and ultimately your power!
This can be scary stuff. But if you’re willing to look at your personal devils, your inner demons, to face your deepest fears, you find that they have no power over you. It is said—Never lock the devil in a closet, for it will find a way to escape and bite you when you least expect it!
This week, take a dance with your dark side. Look your devils squarely in the face, and let them liberate you!
