The devil tarot card is one of the 22 cards in the Great Arcana. The devil card comes up when temptation arises and takes over our common sense. We experience a lack of self-control and think things we do not mean or want to do things we do not really want to do. The temptation can be money, alcohol, or an impulse to harm or destroy others. We feel powerless when these feelings arise and we do not feel so well.

The devil also stands for selfishness, greed, manipulation, lies, hatred, malice, jealousy, jealousy, etc. Furthermore, the card stands for all kinds of addictions – emotional as well as of various preparations.

When the card appears, it means that we have let go of self-control and that we allow ourselves to be guided by lower impulses. The card also appears in such situations when we feel powerless and feel that we lack the ability to change our situation.
