  • Bondage through greed, materialism, addiction
  • Let loose and enjoy the pleasures of life
  • Excessive sexual indulgence or other compulsive behaviors


The Devil card represents temptation and indulgent sensual pleasures. You know it’s bad for you, but it feels so very, very good.

This card is usually seen as a warning against obsessions, compulsions, and addictions. It is so easy to become a slave to the material and physical world. These desires can quickly turn toward greed, exploitation, and oppression. This isn’t a negative card, though. You’ll have to read the other cards around it to get a feel for the situation.

In a positive sense, you may need to start enjoying the pleasures of life. Let yourself become spontaneous and playful. It might even be time to start exploring your deepest, naughtiest desires and participating in those pleasures without fear, shame, or excess.
