The tarot cards hold special meanings, warnings, characteristics and actions that may need to be taken in order to change your course in life. Keep in mind that some aspects are changeable and some are not. It is all up to you. With the Devil card as the tarot card for the week of 3-26-17, it serves as a reminder that it might be time to ask for help from above or advice from others in solving personal problems. The Devil card may seem threatening and alarming on the surface, but it does bring a message about the importance of focusing your energies on positive thoughts and actions. Perhaps you have been thrown a bit off course in your life and this is the time to get back on track and change for the better. This might be the week to acknowledge that you have been enslaved by your own fears and desires. You must face your demons head on. Will you be able to give up some of your stubbornness and materialism? You can break some of those negative habits. The card also reminds you to keep temptation at bay and that moderation and balance are the keys to enrichment. At the end of the week, you decide if the Devil card fell in the upright or reverse position for you.

The Devil tarot card is often misunderstood, primarily because the Devil is involved. It is not directly representative of evil. It can relate to a person’s focus on material possessions and physical appearance. A hopeless and helpless feeling can surround this card. You are tricked into feeling possessed, as if by a hidden force, which is causing harmful and negative thoughts and behaviors. You have an addiction or obsession to obtain earthly desires. You are willing to take any measures to get them. You have become inflexible and obsessed. The spiritual side of life is neglected because of the attachment to the physical world. There is a desire for material things and a selfish presence. This is adversely affecting you and your relationships. Unwanted actions and self-bondage to something are often experienced, which hinder personal growth or health. You are unwilling to accept responsibility for your negative actions. As the saying goes, “The Devil made me do it.”
In the reversed position, the Devil card can signify divorce and detachment. It can also represent evil, greed, or emotional blackmail. You are your own worst enemy and you have put yourself into an emotional imprisonment. You may be overindulging yourself and have been gluttonous and greedy, but there is a hefty price to pay. You have been abusing yourself and others for too long. You have put blinders on and have been unable to see your weaknesses and those of others. On the positive side, it can indicate overcoming adversity or enlightenment. Confront your demons head on. It is also a time for making apologies, where appropriate. You may also find that you are released from bondage to material possessions and from being an emotional hostage. New views about your place in the Universe may be revealed.
