Tuesday Tarot: The Devil (XV)

Welcome to another Tuesday Tarot.

Again, I have to stress, I am not an expert in the Tarot and I use them for myself and friends (and my characters) to help answer questions about situations and the future.

The Card:
The Devil (XV)
The Devil is card number fifteen in the Major Arcana.
It is representative of materialism and deception, those negative aspects associated with character of the Devil.

When you draw a Major Arcana card it is important that you pay attention to it. Kinda like a "hey look at this!" moment that warns you that you need to pay attention to the events surrounding you.

Meaning (Upright):
Fear, evil influences at work; division within self; wrapped up in material pursuits; journey in life is off course; miserable existence; greed--need for success at any cost; not facing the truth; wasting energy in over indulgences; waste of creative talents.

Meaning (Reversed):
The same as upright, but not as severe; indecision causes weakness; respond quickly now that you've seen the light; free yourself from past habits; reduced selfishness or greed; face reality; accept responsibility; using talents in good ways.

The Devil (XV) In A Reading:
If you were to draw The Devil (XV) upright when doing a reading for yourself you should be aware it indicates that your current path isn't the right one for you. It could mean you are wasting your talents and striving for fame without paying attention to the consequences of your actions.
If this card shows up in your reading take the time to evaluate your situation. Examine all the information and be cautious in your decision making until you can be positive you're dealing with right people.


  1. Interesting, Qwillia! I had someone who does tarot readings all the time do an interview of one of my heroes. It was really fun!
