You interpret the Devil as hedonistic? How come? I've never seen a Devil-card with happy people on it. Apart from the people on the painting in Lees card and even they seem just happy and not really hedonistic... Care to elaborate?
I don't really want to butt in here but this discussion is very interesting

I often see the Devil card as meaning hedonism or even a warning not to take things too seriously. In many decks the Devil is represented by the pagan god Pan - I think the Thoth deck uses him - Pan is lustful, hedonistic, fun loving - maybe a little too much - hence the warning of becoming attatched to negative thought or behaviour patterns such as addictions etc.

Just a few random thoughts
