GYPSY CARD READING, THE CARD OF OFFICER
The Officer card is referring to the Spartans, which word was given to them by the Phoenicians, whom they used as slaves. Spardha in Sanskrit meaning race-, racism, emulous, envious.
The Spartan were a different tribe from the rest of the ancient Greek population, and they made themselves who they become, the Devil. Their characteristics was copied (hence the name emulation) from different disciplines. From Crete (Stoicism from Sanksrit Stuc to be bright or propitious) and from the North, the liberties of Yonians (seeking of pleasure, lust) at the same time. Whilst the red colour of the uniform was emulating the original inhabitants of ancient Greece, the Phoenicians, whilst their helmet was an imitation of Abraxas', their god's, rooster head, giving him authority to kill and exercise oppression over people. The Officer card representing the Servant of Fire Isira (the ego), which connect this card to the Servant's card. The Spartan is assisting the demons (damunas, i.e. Gorgon) to create ignorance and darkness in the world, protecting the stability and their power structure, their pyramid system. The uniform serves to hide their true personality whilst creating trust, authority, obedience and power to themselves.
In Sparta every infant was examined by a council of leading elder Spartans from the child's tribe to see whether he was fit and healthy enough to be allowed to live. In the event the baby did not pass the test, he was placed at the base of Mt Taygetus for several days in a test to die of exposure or survive the ordeal. At the age of seven, the male child was enrolled in the agoge from Sanskrit saGgamana and sAmagaNa i.e. gathering collectively under the authority of the paidonomos. The boys lived in groups (agélai, from Sanskrit gomat i.e. possessing or containing cattle or cows or herds) under an older man, a cattle herder. They were encouraged to give their loyalty to their communal mess hall known as the Syssitia, (from Sanksrit sAdhita, i.e. subdued by sadism), rather than to their families. Beginning at the age of 12, boys would be given only one item of clothing per year. They were intentionally underfed to encourage them to master the skills necessary to become successful at stealing their food. This was meant to produce tall, well-built soldiers rather than fat short ones. This let the boys become accustomed to hunger so that during a campaign, hunger would not be a problem. They would be severely punished, however, if they were caught stealing.
At around age 12 the boys were forced to enter into an institutionalised relationship with a young adult male Spartan. Plutarch described this form of Spartan pederasty wherein somewhat older warriors would engage promising youths in a long-lasting intimate relationship with a pedagogic motive. The boy was expected to request sexual relationship, which was seen as a method to pass on knowledge and maintain loyalty on the battlefield.
At the stage of paidiskoi, around the age of 18, the students became reserve members of the Spartan army. Some youths were allowed to become part of the Crypteria; (from Sanskrit cArapatha i.e. crossroad, representation of swastica, a type of 'Secret Police', identical to the Gestapo from the Sanskrit word; niSTapta meaning to burn, melt) where the members were instructed to spy on the Helot population and even kill Helots (Helot means inhabitants of Helos, the Phoenicians, who, after conquest, become serfs, slaves of the Spartans. (Helos is a Sanksrit word, 'hlas' meaning sound, referring to 'The Voice of God'.
Those Phoenicians, who were out at night or spoke seditiously, were killed, to help keep the population submissive. The state supported this by formally declaring war on the Phoenicians, the Romani people (Gypsies) every autumn, so that killing a Gypsy, a Helot, was not regarded as a crime, but a valuable deed for the good of the state.

The Officer is called Spardha, dviliGga, dAha-balin in Sanskrit, meaning emulous, envious, division and tears. Devil comes from the Sanskrit word dviliGga, meaning pedophile, adopted into Greek as diaballein, from another Sanskrit word dAha-balin translating to burning serpent, and again referring to uncontrolled sexual desires, which then transformed into devil. The Sanskrit word Spardha is referring to the Spartans, Officer among the Gypsy Card and the Devil in Rider Tarot, which is a more appropriate title.
