The movie begins with the Devil who would be the main character,Gru (Devil). He goes to the Bank of Evil but is denied (King of Coins Rx).
He decides to fake adopt three little girls (Three of Cups) who show him how to do foolish things and have fun (The Fool).
His mother (Empress Rx) shows up in flash backs and he realizes that he is being deceived by someone (Moon).
He has to fight off the other evil villain (Knight of Swords Rx). He learns from children how to live happily ever-after (6 of Cups).
Try this as a Tarot exercise. Pick a book or movie that you know very well — Wizard of Oz for instance. Now assign cards (no more than eight) to tell the story as you know it. If you have a Tarot study group, you might try this as a discussion.
I'm interested in what you come up with so please share.
