The Devil

The Devil

It’s going to be important today to examine all of your emotional reactions — particularly the baser, more difficult to acknowledge reactions, like anger, resentment, jealousy and fear.

The Devil card refers to the areas in our lives where each of us are limited or imprisoned by those reactions. Sometimes it can manifest as lashing out or projecting shadow material onto others. And sometimes it can manifest as self-harm, such as indulging in drugs or other self-defeating behaviors.

In the end it’s really about giving up control through a desperate attempt to maintain it. The Devil in this card — from the Morgan Greer Tarot — is a sinister satanic-looking goat-demon (Baphomet) with sharp fangs and piercing yellow eyes.

An inverted gold star (representing evil and malice) and a candle burning down to the quick are seated above his head. I loved what Avia Venefica had to say about the fly, which is basically a reference to the negativity we feed upon as well as the pesky little annoyances that interfere with our ability to achieve enlightenment.

The diminishing light from the candle’s flame reminds me of one of the greatest dangers inherent in this card. It’s the lack of clarity and insight that leads to our own undoing. And as most our negative emotions are rooted in fear, keeping that light burning is essential.

As Venus, Uranus and Pluto all come together today in a set of uncomfortable aspects, you might need to look at the ways you’ve given up your own personal power. It could be physical — as in an involvement in an unbalanced or dysfunctional relationship — or it could be psychological — as in being consumed by unhealthy emotions.

Whatever it is, know that the Devil card is here to remind you that only you can reclaim your power. You can liberate yourself from the chains that bind you only if you’re brave enough to face them first.
