Regarding love, El Diablo tells us that although the couple or the love situation is marked by passion, lust and sexuality, its romantic content is poor, the emotions are superficial, corporal, but not internal.

There may be domination of one over the other, competition, vanities. There is an emotional instability, fights and constant arguments.

It is good if you want to know how much passion there is in the couple or relationship, if sexuality is strong, but in general reading for a love relationship it is a letter with many negative nuances.

  • Primitive desires. 
  • Uncontrollable passions. 
  • Abuse. 
  • Perversions. 
  • Sexual instincts. 
  • Suppressed fears. 
  • Your Achilles’ heel. 

You feel that you have fallen into a trap, which, most likely, you made yourself. Perhaps you have some kind of strong hobby. Do you refuse to end your problematic relationship? 

Is it difficult for you to refuse when you feel like it really needs to be done? 

When the devil appears in the scenario, it is worth thinking: perhaps you are too attached to the material world or you are overwhelmed by unbridled passions, maybe you are not in the best relationship with someone , or are you too concerned about financial well-being? Fear and negative thinking poison your life.

Take a close look at reality. Perhaps your life is like slavery? Perhaps you are entangled in a web of unhealthy attachments? Are you acting out of greed or fear of losing material wealth? Are you using money to buy love? 

Are you maintaining a relationship that you yourself understand will not lead to anything good? Are you busy pursuing material happiness? Are you haunted by obsessive thoughts about your health or sex? Do you allow your life to be dependent on drugs, alcohol or other addictions?

The devil warns:  you must not use your position or influence to manipulate other people. You have fallen into your own trap, and now is the time to face your fears and what is holding you back. Your hopelessness and the belief that nothing can be changed is holding you back. 

Why are you so sure that your destiny is only to suffer? Fight with your shadow, this will allow you to develop further (according to Jung, the Shadow denotes the dark side of our personality and the most difficult aspects – our fears, indecision, which we must resist and which we must tame; only after that we can find integrity).

In the upright position, the card may indicate that you take for granted what cannot be proved. Remembering evil, we should not forget that fire can be both light and hell. In addition, the card “DEVIL” can symbolize the excruciating thirst for material or purely physical well-being, as well as the desire to rule over others. In certain cases, it also signals slavish dependence on erotic desires.


The Devil (Reversed) Meaning

Positive Meaning:

  • Taming your own fears. 
  • Liberation from addiction. 
  • Throwing off the shackles. 
  • Ending interdependence. 
  • The power of positive thinking. 
  • Overcoming temptation. 
  • The search for enlightenment.

Negative Meaning:

  • Indecision. 
  • Obstinacy. 
  • Excessive ambition. 
  • Excessive greed. 
  • Instability. 
  • Clinging to 
  • something . 
  • Addiction. 
  • Loop around the neck. 
  • Will-suppressing relationships. 
  • Abuse of power. 
  • Perversion. 
  • Inhumanity. 
  • Using people in their own interests, for the purpose of enrichment. 
  • Completely corrupt absolute power.

In an inverted position, the card speaks of the abuse of power, the concentration of efforts solely on achieving material wealth. If the card falls out among the good ones, then we can assume a successful love story or a situation in which you can safely “dodge” retaliation, and if you say it quite frankly: debauchery without unpleasant consequences. 

In the realm of spiritual knowledge, an inverted card indicates that you have realized the limitations of forms and are striving to free yourself from them. 

It is also possible that you, realizing in yourself the spark of God, begin to comprehend yourself in the identity.

The positive aspect of the devil card: 

When turned upside down, it indicates that you will be free from the shackles. You will defeat the false values ​​and circumstances that limit you. 

You will no longer be at the mercy of your glamor. An onerous relationship is drawing to a close. You are already ready for freedom and independence, you no longer cling to life-poisoning relationships, as well as the desire to make a lot of money and gain power. 

You are freed from the influence of negative thinking. You are ready to throw off the burden of a difficult situation.

The negative aspect of the devil card:  

In an inverted position, it indicates that you may be acting selfishly, most of your actions are dictated by greed. Perhaps you need to choose between money and happiness. Your desire for material wealth or power can turn into a mania. 

Perhaps someone is controlling or manipulating you. You will not overcome depression until you release the shackles that hold you back. Many obstacles have been created by you, but you do not want to notice it. 

The devil card in an inverted position warns that you can be drawn into dirty sexual relations. You see no way out of a hopeless situation.


The Devil : Spirituality

In the field of spirituality, it indicates that you should maintain a positive mindset, as it is of the utmost importance at this time. Positive affirmations are important and will benefit you. Take a look at who you surround yourself with.

Are there positive, optimistic people in your midst, or are you surrounded by overly critical people? Do you feel that they dominate you? Take stock and take action. Life is short, you should not allow yourself to be forced to live it in any other way than what you want.
