The Devil Tarot Card Meanings

Anger, Jealousy, and resentment Self-delusion Selfishness Violence

The Devil is not as scary as you might hope. It is a letter about captivity, but often this captivity is metaphorical and internal.

With this letter, you are called to look beyond superficial appearances to understand more deeply the truth and the meaning of the situation.

It would help if you remembered that you almost always have the key to your freedom when you feel restricted. Don’t lose hope!

The Devil - meaning of the tarot card

It is important to remember that regardless of the situation, there are always options to choose from. First, don’t let other people say that your options are limited. If you come to this conclusion, make sure it is for you. Regardless, it is important to remember that you can free yourself from the limitations that hold you back anytime you decide to do so. Now you can have the feeling that you are not in control of your life. Sometimes it happens as a result of your actions, but more often as a side effect of inaction. So, take action, take every step to give yourself the feeling, even slight, of keeping things under control, even if it’s just what you have to eat for dinner. Small steps are important too!


If you are in a long-term romantic relationship, one or both sides can get to the point where they feel trapped in this situation. If you get signs that this is the case and want to stay in the relationship, try talking about it. This card sometimes pops up when you really can’t do anything else but end an unhappy relationship. We always have a choice. Take steps to keep the magic alive. If you are looking for love, this letter may be a sign that you are reaching a point of despair that puts off potential partners. If so, consider taking a little time to get to know yourself better. Come back to find new friends when this need is less urgent.


Your financial affairs in the near future can be very tense. Try not to make the situation worse, and you can deal with it thanks to peace and rationality. Take only one step at a time. If you need financial help, don’t be afraid to ask for it - don’t let your pride get in the way. Help is always available. Even if you feel fine right now, this card means that you are in a tight financial moment. Save yourself for the proverbial black hour.


There is an event beyond your influence that will change your life. It is not sure if it will be good or bad, but avoid flamboyant behavior and be true to yourself.


The time is coming when you will have to find the beauty in yourself and stop the projections you throw onto the world. Find the courage to change your life. The course of your life is beyond your knowledge, but this awareness will overcome your self-harm.
