We always have that devil inside us. The devil doesn’t really mean a bad person, but it relates the bad habits, ego and dark desire within us. We all love ego massaging. It is always tempting to be bad. Devil do not let us see the clear picture. It always makes us feel that we are better than others, and this will lead to the development of a superiority complex. Having an ego is one thing and using it to down others is another. The Devil tarot card highlights the devil within us. This indicates addiction, materialistic luxury and lust for money will take centre stage. We are blinded by all the luxuries and bad habits. This makes us lose focus, and we tend to get attracted to undesirable elements. The Devil tarot card belongs to Major Arcana. Let us see what the card actually means.
Significance And Meaning Of The Devil Tarot Card
The Devil Tarot card shows a mythical creature called Baphomet. Baphomet comes from the medieval era. He is also called a Horned goat of Mendes that is half man and half goat. The original meaning of Baphomet indicates a balance between good and bad, human and animal. However, as time evolved, the figure was considered an evil one. The card shows the devil having the wings of a Vampire bat. This symbolises that the person succumbs to raw dark desire. The devil is staring with a hypnotic vision;this indicates his control over other people.
He believes in occult dark science and magic. His right hand is raised in the Vulcan salute, a Jewish blessing. In his left hand, there is a lit torch. The foot of the devil shows a man and woman both naked are chained to the seat of the devil. At first, it appears that they are held against their wish, but if you look closer, you will see that the chain is loose and can be removed. Both male and female have small horns growing, which indicates they are succumbing to the devil’s hypnosis.
