Crazy Tarot Stuff

Ran across this little bit of entertainment in the blogosphere:
What Tarot Card are You?

Apparently I am "The Devil." The short definition is: successful, misunderstood, somehow goat-like (stubborn, smelly?), and, of course, very hard to resist. Hmmm...I'll have to ponder all of that. Isn't the dragon devil card attractive!

Long definition: Materiality. Material Force. Material temptation; sometimes obsession
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 tried the test one more time to make sure I really was the devil and guess what? You can't cheat your way out of being what you are! :) I came up with horns, tats, piercing eyes and attractive red fat rolls.
