Tarot - Major Arcana II - The Devil

Meaning of The Devil, Major arcana tarot card

The Devil
The Devil

If you seek the truth then you will understand that the world is full of opposites, illusions and apparent contraditions. An initial impression of this card is that it is full of evil and everything that we find undesirable.

What you have to remember is that good and bad can not be separated, you can not shine a light on the world without there being a shadow.

Much of the second part of the Major Arcana is about a spiritual quest and how you can reconcile and unite the physical and spiritual domains.

Darkness hides the truth from your eyes. The man and women look like they are enslaved but they could easily free themselves if they choose to do so. They are not being held against their will.

You think negative thoughts, feel trapped, see the bad in people and situations but is this simply a matter of not knowing the truth, acting in ignorance. In order to see the Devil you must be capable of seeing unfairly, from a narrow and incorrect point of view.

Is this the face of the Devil or Pan / Dionysius - gods of pleasure, wild behaviour, intense passion and desire. A fire can burn and rage within you filling you up with intense emotions. There is nothing to be ashamed of, there is nothing to fear. The only question to consider is will these impulses enslave you or inspire you?

The key is to understand that you can not be shackled and controlled by your senses. You do not have to be tied to the physical and material world, you do not have to be tied to a world of illusion.
