(representative Horned God)
My first impressions:
Fear/Devotion: a mix of the two?
Pain, sex, desire, need, merging, wanting – where does this all separate?
Connected unbidden by circumstances beyond your control
From The Mystic Tarot:
Strongest of instincts – sexual desire, money, and power lust
The facing of a difficult truth – a key choice that could tempt you in the wrong direction
“I can have whatever I want, but am I prepared to pay the high price?”
From The Illustrated Book of Tarot:
The Material World – a phase in your life when money and material well being become important. You may start saving or collecting something – just don’t let it become an obsession
Don’t try to buy friendship or love – don’t let someone buy you
You are overly concerned about material security – it is keeping you from greater fulfillment; it is keeping you trapped
Devil is linked with lust and overwhelming physical desire – it is inevitable but it may not be love – you may find yourself obsessed
From The Girl’s Guide to Tarot:
You are too wrapped up in something/someone but, your chains are loose and escape is possible. You have the power
You are stuck in an unhappy situation. You need change.
Too attached to material and ignoring the spiritual.
You are being too forceful in a situation with someone – relax.
Reverse: you’ve been released from an unhappy situation.
Past experiences have taught you well and you’ve faced fears you were holding back.
Serious warning against abuse of power, money, sex, or personal charm
You or someone in your life has become greedy, egocentric, or materialistic
You may be depressed – but you made yourself that way. It’s up to you to get out of it.
Unable to break away from an unhealthy relationship – illogical, magnetic pull to this person – causing strife with your friends and loved ones
