The Devil Care No 15 in the Major Arcana
Good morning everyone. Today we are looking at another card that tends to terrify people. The Devil Card 15/6. Just remember that the god depicted here is the Greek God Pan - the god of nature, lust and earthly pleasure. The reversed pentogram is often featured on this card. The correct interpretation of this is the subordination of spirit and the higher functions of the mind (the highest point being inverted) under the four elements. This leads to a materialistic, physical and sensual focus. In addition to this usually two figures are seen bound to each other and are subordinate to the devil. These represent bonds that are hard to break or old habits, our desires or material ambitions that keep us stuck where we are - essentially ruled by our passions and bonds. Note however the chains around their necks are loose and can easily be removed. Anger and resentment is often experienced by the client when this card shows up. It is all about issues of commitment and responsibility (note the number 6) and the strong bonds we form whether they are favourable or not. This number influence reminds us to take responsibility for our part in a situation but not to be burdened by inappropriate guilt that can keep us feeling trapped. Keywords oppression, materialism, desires.
If you draw the Devil card today – face up to your true desires and ambitions. Take responsibility for where you are in life. If you feel stuck you can free yourself from the situation by your own free will. Explore your options. Follow your desires and embrace your tree feelings. There may be a way out if you do want to be free. 🦉🦉🦉🙏♥️
