XV.  The Devil by FugueState XV.  The Devil by FugueState
- Part of the V for Vendetta Tarot project -

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Devil is all about addictions, about the temptations/obsessions that lure us, capture us, and which we, ourselves, refuse to escape even though we have the key to our chains. Traditionally, The Devil represents the basest of man's desires and ultimately he stands as the one in which all the blame of the world's evils are habitually placed. The Devil stands for a warning against the destructive consequnces of your actions motivated by greed, lust and power. More positively, the Devil can be a sign that you are gaining control, or at least awareness, of your weaknesses or addictions.

Reversed: In a reversed position the Devil represents freedom from the physical desires of the world, a mindset of spiritual over physical, or one who accepts and takes responsibility for their own thoughts and actions.

I know it's stretching the point toward the negative, but I was trying for the idea of "imprisonment" through one's own doing. ^^;

It's a shot of the loudspeaker/camera system that Norsefire used, with row-houses in the background. Sorry it's not clearer!
