To be honest, my first impression was to put this one back in the deck. But then again after having drawn two days in a row such morally correct cards like The Emperor and Justice, I thought it was time to loosen up a bit. This card depicts Pan holding a woman in one arm and a chalice filled with wine in the other. The woman is held loosely by his vines and she doesn't seem to mind at all. He is not the typical devil you see in many decks but he is the Spirit of the Wild and the Green. He is asking, perhaps tempting us to let go of our self made boundaries and restrictions; to let go of wanting to be too spiritual and to do good all of the time. He appeals to our wild nature which we deny often for too long. And if so the chance of indulging ourselves excessively is so much greater than when you dance with the wild and the free on a regularly and integrated basis. We are both physical and spiritual beings and one side isn't less valuable than the other.
So for me this card suggest to be treating myself with some physical pleasures without being afraid of consequences and feelings of quilt afterwards. Deep down there is always the seeking of Balance so dancing a little bit out of the center isn't that bad at all.
