The following text is ©Satyros Phil Brucato. He writes for this card:
Caught in a mosh of inner and external chaos, the Dancer either surrenders or is destroyed. Sometimes such tempests are chosen; more often, they choose us. Either way, we learn to abandon our usual sense of control. If we cling too rigidly to our usual way of doing things, we risk getting mulched by the storms that inevitably come.

If you choose to Dance with Abandon, embrace the sense of chaos that comes with it. Ride it before it shatters you. In the Five Rhythms practice cultivated by Gabrielle Roth, Chaos comes between the Staccato force of directed energy and the Lyrical harmony where all previous energies flow together. In order to achieve such harmony, therefore, the Dancer must pass through Chaos, shape herself to it, and accept it as a valid aspect of life’s Dance.

I love how the red above Satan fades into existence almost and the ghostly figures underneath are vividly depicted. I thought the red was a bit strong, made Satan stand out too much, but otherwise a great piece!

I don't think it's Satan ^^"
Adonael Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2013  Hobbyist Writer that case, the red above what I thought to be Satan, or a demon of some sort ^^;

So um...what was it meant to be if I might ask??

Not that I could blame you though, both are man-goat. The representation of Satan was probably inspired from the satyrs.

Of course. To be fair, I should've considered that xD

I'd like to think they're all connected in some profound way, or not so profound way. Either way, I think the term is 'borrowing' when myths and stories cross from one religion to another...

Although the more popularised picture of 'demonic' Satan is in fashion right, if I'm not mistaken.

I think a satyr, associated with the god Dionysus. :)
