Secret Meaning of the Devil
There is one question you will have to ask your client when the Devil card shows up. What are you obsessing over? We are all bound the physical plane for a limited time, and we are all here for a reason. You might even say we are chained to this plane, something symbolised by the Devil in Tarot. The physical world is full of temptations, competitions, fears and desires, you might say the darker things in life, which are carefully managed by the beast of darkness. However is it all bad when the Devil turns up in a reading? And what is the secret meaning of this card? As mention before, when the Devil card shows up while you are reading for either yourself or others, ask this Question: What are you obsessing over? What is it that you are constantly thinking about, what is it you want more than anything else? The good news is, The Devil card is not all bad. It denotes a desire so deep that you will indeed achieve what it is you long for so passionately. Not just does the Devil exhibit the desire, it also has all the solutions at hand. This is not the kind of answers that are hazy and unclear. Oh no, the Devil speaks through practical solutions that are found on this earth plane, This is something that has indeed materialised as a package you can sign up for. And we all need the earthly plane to provide for us.
Read on a find out what the secret meaning of Devil is, personality types in the Devil, PLUS what Archangel is symbolised as the devil in disguise!
The traditional meaning of the Devil
The Devil represents the primal source of behaviour that shows itself in form of our desires and earthly needs. It also represents our fears that causes addiction and compulsive behaviour. The Devil is a very materialistic and ambitious card so when the Devil card shows up in your reading you might find yourself craving more power and money in your life. The other cards in the layout will show you why and in what area you are feeling the effect of the ambitious, competitive and highly sexual Devil card. The Devil card often shows up in a reading when someone is being obsessed with a person, a job, or a goal, and the cards will show what outcome this will have if the behaviour continues. The Devil card binds people together that are attracted to each other due to their primal physical needs rather than higher spiritual connections.
Personality type portrayed by the Devil
Devil denotes someone who has a very strong will and often execute this strong will to gain power and control over others. This is someone who will make something happen not because it is the will of God but because it is the will of man. Devil people are very stubborn and they are often chained to their own stubborn ways like slaves. It gives results but at a high price. They are angry and obsessive, stuck in a toxic pattern that they believe they need. Beneath it all is someone with low self esteem who is afraid of failure. They get things done when everyone else has given up. They never play complaisant with anyone. They are highly sexual people. They need to be stimulated by either foods (sugar), drugs, tobacco or alcohol to cope.
Some of these characteristics are shown in the astrological link the Devil has to the Zodiac:
The Devil is ruled by Capricorn. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn. Saturn has been called the planet of fate and the lord of karma. It governs the part of you that accepts challenge to gain wisdom. Saturn exert an opposing force to limit the expansion of Jupiter to keep Jupiter's nature from running rampantly out of control. Saturn cements us into the physical plane, and rules things that are constricting and hard. When well aspected Saturn's influence denotes patience, diligence, practicality, self-discipline, reliability and healthy ambition. Saturn assists us in succeeding in the earthly plane. On a negative note Saturn denotes cold, indifferent, rigid, overly stubborn and miserly aspects of a person who might be paying the price for their earthly behaviour.
We need balance and we need to accept our earthly needs. We need to embrace our ego (your ego must be your amigo) and never deny your ego what it needs. And what you need is to be fulfilled. The Devil in Tarot knows this and will pull you towards what it is you desire most. In symbolism it is suggested that the beast in the Rider Waite tarot deck is indeed Archangel Uriel disguised as the Devil, which ask the question how much we do deny our self vs how much abundance is handed down to us. Are we denying our self by being too modest? This is the case when the Devil shows up in the advice position in a spread. If the cards are advising you to become more devilish you must become more ambitious as the Universe wants to grant you more power. You are indeed someone who can handle power and do good with it. And that is exactly the kinds of people the world needs. I am thinking Mining Magnate Andrew Forrest who is rich and powerful and at the same time is an Earth Angel distributing good deeds where needed.
If you wonder what you are good at and the Devil card shows up, then you have talents in Marketing, Negotiations, Communication, Computers/IT, Farming, Mining and Business. Indeed you can succeed everywhere.
Additional meaning of Devil is IVF Treatment (this is a perfect example of matter over mind as opposed to mind over matter, and matter over mind is what the Devil in Tarot is all about). Use the additional tarot card meanings where the traditional meaning makes little sense, or where the traditional meaning is incomplete.
