Upright: Addiction, Enslavement, Fears
Reversed: Awareness, Breaking Free, Empowerment
The Devil alludes to your negative behaviors and patterns that restrain you from moving forward in life. These are often illusions of imprisonment where you feel shackled to your problems, however, you have the choice to break free or walk away at any point in time. The Devil resides in the depths of doubt, where you give way to your addictions and fears, almost like staying in a bad relationship because it’s familiar. It’s time to reevaluate your relationship with the Devil—is this relationship serving your best interests? If not, break free from your shackles! Although not always easy, you have the keys to unlock yourself from your issues. Obsession with materialism and collecting conquests has your head spinning. Check back in with your higher self and align yourself back to your values.
You have become aware of your codependent relationships and addictions, and are making strides to break free from the chains that have been holding you back from moving forward. You are open to a different way of living, even though it is scary to make those changes because they have become so familiar. However, the familiarity is not healthy, and you have decided to empower yourself to choose another path. The journey to the road ahead will not be easy—you will have to battle your inner demons, who run rampant, using your inner fears and anxieties as a form of their own power. However, you will gain control back by eliminating the negativity and introducing more positive energies into your life. You are vulnerable to temptations, so take extra care and caution.
