DEVIL TAROT CARD MEANINGS AND DESCRIPTION
Bewammet in the devil card, or the Hornd goat of the men’s, a creature which is half a man, shows half the goat. Bafamat originally represented the balance between good and bad, men and women and humans and animals; However, recently, this figure is associated with the occult and has become a scapegoat for all things considered ‘evil’.
The devil has a bat’s wingspan, an animal that sucks the life’s water from its prey, what happens if you give your raw desires. He has a hypnotism, which does ‘magnet’ and bring those who come to him under his power. There is a reverse pentagram above it – a sign of the dark side of magic and horror. He raises his right hand in the Vulcan Salute – a Jewish blessing, later film series, Star Trek’s famous. In his left hand, he burns a torch.
There is a man and a woman standing on the feet of Devil, both nude and chained to that podium on which the devil sits. They appear to be held here against their will – but look closely, and you will see that the chain around their neck is loose and they can be easily removed. Each has small horns on its head, as if Satan is an indication that they are becoming as long as they are. The tail of both is another symbol of their animal nature and the raw tendency, and the fire on grapes and their related tail reflects happiness and lust.
UPRIGHT DEVIL TAROT CARD MEANINGS
The Devil card represents your shadow (or deep) side and negative forces that force you and prevents you from becoming the best version of yourself. You can be under the influence of negative habits, dependencies, behavior, thought patterns, relationships and addictions. You are caught between short-term happiness and long-term pain experienced by you. Just as the lover of cards talks about duality and likes, Satan is also like that; However, with Satan, you are immediately pursuing the path of gratification, even if it is at the expense of your long term welfare. In fact, you have sold your soul to the devil!
Devil card often appears when you are tempted to think that there is no control over your shadow itself or these negative powers, and you can never be free from their grip. You believe that you need it and you should have this, even if it means that you are going against what you know to get it right. However, you know that it is for your opposition, and when you live in the cave for these little needs and desires, then you are only dissatisfied (and often others) a dissident. To be free from these negative patterns, you have to accept the holding on yourself and the effects on your life. For example, the first step of Alcoholics Anonymous is an entry: “We accepted that we were powerless on alcohol – that our life had become intolerable.”
When the devil appears in Tarot reading, watch it as an opportunity to bring these negative effects into your awareness, so you can take action to free yourself from their grip. Put your light on the negative pattern standing in your way for so long, and over time, you will loosen the hold which you have. Given that Devil is a Major Archana Card, it is unlikely that you will be free from all addictions and dependencies overnight. This can be a recurring pattern for you, and it will take a huge amount of determination and strength to free yourself from your influence. But know this: It is possible, and it is up to you to do it.
On the positive side, the devil can show a strong attachment between two people, such as a mother and her newborn, or a new romance in her ‘honeymoon stage’. ‘Be careful, however, because with the devil card, this healthy attachment can turn into an unhealthy, co-dependent relationship if you lose relationship with your inner guidance or do not protect your personal limits.
Satan can also represent sexuality and your wild side. You can discover binding, fetus and your deepest, deepest fantasies. If you can do it within a safe, sacred place, then it can be a very rich experience. However, there is the ability to change some things that can be unsafe or harmful for your well-being for a long time, so again, set clear boundaries, choose your partners wisely and keep your ‘safe words’ ready. .
Reversed Devil Tarot Card Meaning:
Inverted devil card can often be seen when you are on the brink of break-through or up-leveling. You are being called for your highest potential, but first of all, let you limit any unhealthy attachments or beliefs that can hold you back.

Let the fear go and release any self-limiting limbs standing in the way of your development. It is easier than feeling it.
The upside-down devil asks you to free yourself from the series to face your inner fears and worries that bind you with your limited beliefs and unhealthy attachment. Remove things that you know are harmful to you and your inner psyche.

You want to understand your innermost shadow so that you can either release them or integrate them in a more constructive way in your life. When you do it inadvertently, or with resistance, it can be very struggling because you can begin to realize that you are very different from what you were. You can enter the period of anxiety or depression, or you can experience dark thoughts that you struggle to understand. If it is resonated, please search for a trained physician to work through this time.
Inverted devil can also be an indication that you are hiding your deepest, deepest self from others, keeping it secret. You may have thoughts, ideas, addictions or habits, which you do not want to know from others because you feel embarrassed or embarrassed. But sometimes, holding secrets can contribute to the increasing level of crime, and you can feel a sense of relief if you can share your deepest self with at least one trusted person. It is also necessary to accept who you are and forgive yourself for those thoughts. Of course, if you are at risk of harming yourself or others, please get professional help immediately.
In the end, the devil invites you to practice the Buddhist doctrine of intelligence, a state in which you remove your attachment to the desires of the world, things or concepts of the world, and give yourself any restrictions Free from This does not mean that you do not care about people or things; You issue your dependence on them. You can also find that chord-cutting visualization helps in releasing any unhealthy attachments to others, especially when the devil appears in contrast to Tarot reading.
