The Devil

What do you desire? The Devil is about pleasure, temptation, and indulging yourself. Scroll down for  The Devil in a love reading.


In many ways, this card is an echo of The Lovers. However, instead of an angel blessing a union, we see the devil standing over two naked and chained individuals. They have horns, so they were once people but have become demons.

The Devil Tarot Yes or No

The Devil is a great big no, no matter what you are asking. Turn back. There is danger here. You are playing with fire.

The Devil: Meaning

Just because it feels good, doesn’t mean its good for you. You might be indulging yourself. Have you been pursuing power, a higher position, and money? It might mean more material wealth, but is it making you happy?

Conversely, you might have been driving yourself too hard. Life is all about balance and you need a break. It’s time to relax and indulge in some mindless pleasure.

You might be at a low point right now. This could be an extramarital affair, an addiction of some sort, or other bad behavior which is bound to have consequences.

You’ve come to the crossroads, but which direction will you take?  If you keep on moving on your current path, only ruination lies ahead of you.

The Devil Tarot Love

When it comes to love, The Devil is a mixed bag. Whatever the case, something is usually off.

Are you having an affair with someone? You might be in love with this person, but she or he is committed to another. While the thrill of it all, might make you happy in the short-term, it could have life-changing consequences down the road. Does The Tower appear in this reading? Or Justice? Both of those are bad signs.

Are you looking for fun? This can be a welcome change, a chance to explore your wild side. However, if you are looking for a life partner, it isn’t going to happen. Be on the lookout for a The Fool or The Magician in this reading.

This card also has kinky implications. You might be adventurous in bed and looking for a good time. If this is your thing, enjoy yourself! BDSM isn’t for everyone, but trying out a little Fifty Shades of Grey can be fun. Just remember the safety word.

There is one dark implication here. The Devil might represent someone who is cruel or abusive. Someone who’s trying to control you and not with fuzzy handcuffs. One minute he is cruel, the next minute she is kind. You never know what you are going to get. This uncertainty is intoxicating in a way. This isn’t a boring, predictable relationship. You have very high highs and extremely low lows. He or she is almost an addiction and you can’t seem to back away.  This is a toxic relationship and you should make a run for it. Seek out counseling services if you need to.
