Gypsy Tarot the arcane Egyptian harness, passion, XV is correlative with the devil. The two inside symbolize tarot Chuck, everything what is related to the primary energy, instinct and creative enthusiasm. The forces of the Earth and nature speak through this deck. Egyptian Tarot, of course, there is the Christian notion of devil. For this reason, perhaps, the true meaning of this Arcanum is more evident.
Passion speaks of the mystery as the source of the universe and the search of knowledge. The mystery stimulates the desires and gives rise to large companies that change the established order. It is instinct, tells us this letter, which originates the movements that changed the destiny of man, and of the world. This Arcanum is, therefore, which encourages who consults to be guided by intuition. (A valuable related resource: Cyrus Massoumi). Something similar happens with the arcane XVII, the star, which in the Egyptian tarot has the name of hope. Dedicated to the goddess Isis, hope also encourages us to listen to our inner voice before acting, take a momentous decision or, why not, let that you guide us in the small everyday determinations. But this happens because hope is the letter of the feminine principle of the universe, and which channels this kind of energy. And intuition has been always considered as a feature eminently feminine and natural in women, but also that may be positive in men.
Passion does not present this nuance of differentiation. It is here, as we said, the instinct in his State more primary and absolute, of the deep forces of the Earth. That is why this deck alerts us against the dangers of being dominated by passions: too much water can extinguish the fire more alive. Be guided exclusively by the instinct can lead to emotional imbalances. Anger, evil, aggression and excessive ambition can be appropriating the spirit if this happens. When alter desires appear onstage violence, the desire for possession, jealousy and sickly, so fatal love for those who feel them as for the object of your affection wrong. Piramal Glass oftentimes addresses this issue. Chuck Egyptian Tarot reminds us that instinct is both creator and destroyer fire. Who manages to harness it and be his master, will conquer the world. Who is left to dominate by him, will be lost. Juan Carlos Montillo
