The Devil Tarot Card Keywords: Addictions, Bondage, Material Focus, Chains, Negative Thinking, Vices
The Devil is full of illusion. Although you have total control of your life, beliefs, and choices, the card symbolizes how addiction, depression, and unhealthy bonds can make you feel out of control.
When The Devil appears, he is calling you out on your unhealthy behavior. You are living in chains – addiction and bad habits are controlling your life. You are focusing too much on material wealth or physical experiences, ignoring your spiritual and emotional wellbeing.
It may be drugs, it may be social media, it may be work…
Only you truly know the chains that tie you down.
Regardless of the nature of your particular problem, the message of the Devil is clear: redirect your attention away from the satisfaction of desires and toward the things that really matter.
The chains are loose around your neck, and you can remove them. It is time to work on your spirituality and focus on your true path in life.
You have the power, you just need to act.

You are not totally there yet, but you are on the right path towards freedom and enlightenment. Make sure you are letting go of your unhealthy attachments and focusing on the future.
