Interpretation of the card:
Astrological Sign: Scorpio ︱ Planet: Pluto
The Seducer is depicted as Mephistopheles, who appears to be charming the observer. He holds a black rose in his hand, a symbol of human creation and realization of their own ideas. The picture is dominated by dark colors, which are associated with this archetype. In the background, a fire rises from a deep well, symbolizing the power that can be harnessed from the depths. However, this is a cold fire that cannot warm the heart.
The meaning of the Seducer Symbolon card
1) As a single or first card︱ The problem
WHAT IS THE SUBJECT?
You have deceived yourself with a false notion, and now you are trapped and fixated on it. By doing so, you are sacrificing a vital aspect of yourself, trading a part of your soul in the hope of gaining something better in return. However, this path will only lead to you being controlled by forces from the underworld. You are playing a dangerous game with the devil. It is crucial for you to recognize what this false notion is that has taken hold of you. Do not do more, but do not do less either!
2) As the next card︱Way through the problem
HOW TO DEAL WITH IT?
You can only reach the light at the end of the tunnel if you face the depths of the underworld and navigate through it. You cannot improve or become someone else down there. (Stop trying to become better, it's just one of the devil's temptations!) Only Virgil's words can guide you further: 'Take a look and then move on!'
3) as the last card︱Result
WHERE DOES IT LEAD?
You will undergo a transformation, and the old images must fade away. Eventually, false ideas that never truly existed will disappear like fog in the sun.
