I was not content to believe in a personal devil and serve him, in the ordinary sense of the word. I wanted to get hold of him personally and become his chief of staff.

-Aleister Crowley


The Devil represents constraints that bind you despite your ability to be free of them should you wish. This card reflects addictions and mental blocks that cause you to focus too much on one area of your life while neglecting others. You are so involved with one thing that you've become a slave to it at the expense of your own happiness or fulfillment.


You may be increasingly aware of your dependence on unhealthy things in your life and may be seeking to free yourself of them. You are looking to move past your personal temptations and will need to battle your own inner devil that tries to keep you bound to them. Your long term betterment depends on your victory against what constrains you.
