The Devil Tarot Guide – Upright & Reversed
Devil Tarot Card Meaning
The tarot is not associated with any particular religion, but it does include several religious symbols, including the Devil. The Devil, the fifteenth card of the Major Arcana, represents our human interests, especially those related to the material world. This card, at its heart, reflects a destructive interaction with others or with oneself.
It also reflects some of our devilish, deepest human emotions. But don’t fear, as scary as this card maybe, the Devil appearing in a reading does not always spell doom. Instead, it encourages you to examine your life’s aspects where you feel out of balance and strives for change.

Knight of Pentacles Tarot Upright
The Devil card reflects the shadow (or darker) hand, as well as the destructive powers that limit and prevent you from being the most potent version of yourself. Bad habits, attachments, behaviours, thinking processes, partnerships, and addictions can be affecting you. You’ve been stuck between the short-term happiness you get and the long-term agony you feel. Talking about the devil tarot love, as the Lovers card, represents duality and choice, but, with the Devil, you are taking the direction of immediate gratification, even though it is at the cost of your long-term well-being. You have entirely sold your soul to the devil!
The Devil also represents sexuality and the wild side. Bondage, fetishes, and your darkest desires can be on your mind. It can be a very enriching experience if you can do this in a protected, sacred place. However, it has the power to devolve into something dangerous or harmful to your health in the long run.
The Devil Card Reversed
When you are on the brink of a breakthrough or levelling up, the reversed Devil card will sometimes appear. You are being called to fulfil your full potential, but first, you must let go of any negative attachments or strict values that might hold you back.
When you are called to become “better,” you must always struggle with the shadows before stepping into this new version of yourself. It may be an illness, an unhealthy friendship, or a disinterested job. Let go of fear and any self-imposed restricting beliefs that are impeding your development. It’s simpler than you think.
Finally, the Devil asks you to practice the Buddhist philosophy of detachment, a state in which you eliminate your addiction to the need for objects, beings, or conceptions of the universe and free yourself from all restrictions.
Devil Tarot Love Feelings
If you’re consulting your Tarot cards to see if anyone has feelings for you, The Devil is a negative sign. This card indicates that they have intentions that you do not want. For instance, they are aware that they can control your emotions and take advantage of your feelings. Their attraction to you is solely emotional as well. They are just concerned about themselves in relationships.
We can say that although not always a bad card. The 15th Major Arcana card reflects temptation and indulgence in sensual pleasures, regardless of how risky such pleasures may turn out to be.
