The Devil, card number 15, is one of the most feared and misunderstood cards of the Major Arcana, mostly caused by misinformation and superstition. We have all seen movies with the old crone of a Tarot reader, in a dark and dusty room, turning over the Devil and the Death card, with the music deepening in the background and our hero or heroine looking horrified…Poor Devil!
This Major Arcana card is one that demonstrates so clearly the value of studying the Kabbalah in conjunction with the Tarot. In this session, Evelynne Joffe looks at the symbolism in a selection of Devil images and examines the card’s position on the Tree of Life to gain a deeper understanding of it. This short video clip gives you a taste of what Evelynne has to say about the bogeyman of the Tarot!
