Desire Originated from Sanskrit and the Veda.Desire in Sanskrit is called sevana, meaning desire, addiction, indulgence, any type of habit which took over your life and it has become a malignant obsession. Desire is a type of "container" which relentlessly driven by a force called the libido, the collective energy of life's instincts and will to survive, and desire must be satisfied! When your mind is overpowered by desires, running wild, you lose reason, and you become like a leaf tossed by storm upon the high winds. Men are deceived by illusion in hoping to reap the fruits of the six senses, hoping to reap the fruits of those six things, whose effects are studied since ancient time by the Romany people, who thereby left for you the true knowledge in coded pictures in the hope that you will gain a clearer perception. When your senses become ungovernable by the lure of the sirens, you must patiently guide them in; for with patience, you are sure to get the better of them. Hence, you become an excellent driver, who knows how to guide the reins of those wild horses.
What is Desire Exactly?
Desire, craving, longing, yearning suggest feelings that impel one to the attainment or possession of something (real or imaginary) within or out of reach: a desire for success, beauty, wealth, but it can also be something that can never be attained, which is causing unhappiness.
When desire is realistic, it is called a goal, however a goal within a pyramid system is a sure way to fail and to lose the little saving you have. However, when you are aiming to achieve a better outcome to better yourself, at school, at your job, or finding a balanced lifestyle, desire is something that is within reach, and attainable. When you work hard, keeping an optimistic outlook that you will achieve this goal, you will succeed and in this sense Desire is a positive card.
However, desire often can become a negative driving force, that is why it is also described as yearning, longing, craving, or in Buddhism it is called thirst, which is considered suffering.

The Sanskrit Word Sevana (Desire) Incorporated into Greek Mythology as Sirens.
The Origin of Desire Card in Tarot.
In Greek mythology the Sirens were dangerous yet beautiful creatures, portrayed as femme fatales who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island.
The sirens in Christianity become a fish, a representation of greed, world domination, and it is the symbol which heavily involved to represent sin in a “secret” way, the goat of lust, Abraxas from Sanskrit Xnabhas.
Therefore, all these secrets and secret societies are for one purpose only, to satisfy greed and lust, which brought suffering for the many for the sake of the few mentally challenged people. Where did it lead us? Are we happier now? We might think we are, because we have a house to live in with marble kitchen bench tops, and we can show off, which means we must be better then the rest of humanity. After all we got marble bench top. Do we even wonder where this marble bench top comes from? Earth. And because we all want marble bench tops, earth is depleted, and she is dying. But doesn't matter, we still have air conditioners to keep us cool and heaters to keep us warm from the extreme weather conditions. We are also working on going to another planet when all things fail on Earth. We must be really smart to achieve all this. Then, we can start all over again, we can create secret societies, depleting the environment, then move to another place again. It looks like from human we become mere Parasites. What is the definition of parasite? It is an organism which lives in or on another organism (its host in this case Earth) and benefits by deriving nutrients at the other's expense. That is the true meaning of the card of desire.
Did you ever wonder where the card of Desire originated from? And why is it included among the tarot cards?
