Is the Devil really evil?

“Sometimes the Devil is a gentleman.”

— Percy Bysshe Shelley

The Devil is, perhaps, one of the most frightening cards in the Tarot.

In the Rider Waite deck, the picture shows a scowling demon with wings and goat’s legs. Holding a flaming torch, he looms over a horned and naked man and woman, who are chained by their necks to his black perch.

In the Old English Tarot deck, the image has the protruding breasts of a woman, and the two chained figures are strange, mythical beasts. We love the Housewives’ Tarot – just take a look at the image to see why…!!

 

Given these images, it’s no wonder the card is so widely feared. But if the demon appears in your reading, know that this Devil does not necessarily represent an evil being. He does, however, indicate that something in your life needs your attention.

Like the Sun, the Moon, the Fool and the Empress, this is a Major Arcana card. These Tarot cards signify major issues in your life and lessons you need to learn. Therefore, Major Arcana card meanings can be complicated and profound.

This card often denotes a dysfunctional relationship – but not necessarily with a person.

Just as the man and woman in the picture are chained, the card may represent some kind of bondage or destructive connection. Are you a slave to your job, to a habit, to a family member, or to a desire for material things? The Devil may be saying you’re caught in an unhealthy or unproductive situation. The card can also be about addiction, whether to a person, a substance, or a behaviour, such as compulsive shopping or gambling.

Sometimes the Devil arrives to call attention to your rage. Have you recently had a spat with a loved one? Are you nursing a grudge against a friend or co-worker? Beelzebub on the card is saying it might be time to let go of your anger and forgive.

In addition, when the card appears in a positive position or is surrounded by more friendly-looking cards, it could be saying you need to break your bondage to others’ expectations, give a freer rein to your creativity, and release your inner imp!

So be aware that when the Devil pops up in your Tarot reading, he’s not there to announce doom, but merely to caution you about the importance of such things as introspection, forgiveness, or spontaneity.

Interested in investigating the ex-wife? Queen of Wands does the trick.

Queens cards generally signify the creative force, the feminine, and that which nurtures. As such, a Queen signals upcoming growth or development, a time when things come to fruition and become real.

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotThe Queen of Wands is a card of energy, happiness, and self-confidence. In the Rider Waite deck, this card shows an enthroned woman holding a sunflower with a black cat at her feet. Because of the cat, she almost appears to be a witch — but she’s a good witch, and one who is healthy, radiant, and physically fit.

As a court card, the Queen of Wands may represent the qualities the card symbolises, or it may stand for an actual person. If she’s a person, she is likely to be a woman, someone with reddish or light brown hair, blue or green eyes, rosy cheeks, and perhaps freckles. She may be athletic, enthusiastic, and self-assured but not arrogant. She’s also likely to befall under the star signs of Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius.

If the card instead stands for its qualities, it may mean you need to enhance your own fitness, self-confidence, independence, and leadership ability — for you have the potential for these things. If the card is reversed, you may need to be less arrogant and demanding, or to rein in your anxieties.

This Queen brings success in competitive endeavours, whether at work, in sports, or in social or romantic competitiveness. The appearance of this card is a good omen for a relationship, as long as you’re able to exude confidence and trust the universe to deliver love and supportiveness.

Quite interestingly for me, when I first read the Tarot for my partner, this card appeared as his ex-wife! Now, I haven’t met the woman, but I understand from other people that this description is quite a good reflection of her. (Personally, I think the reversed version may be more appropriate…)

If you’re interested, I can help you learn more about this and other powerful Tarot cards. We can even investigate your other half’s ex – in a very lighthearted way, of course…!

 


She works hard for the money – and it’s a job well done!

Oh, the joy of a job well done! The Eight of Pentacles in the Rider Waite deck shows a man seated at a workbench, hammering a five-pointed star into a golden disk. On the tree beside him and at his feet are other disks showing his completed work. This is a card of commitment, diligence and focus.

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotEights indicate strength. When they show up in a reading, they stand for the ability to (or the need to) use your will and intelligence to control yourself, with beneficial results. Eights also stand for boundaries – the need to set them, and the need to accept those that have been set by others.

Pentacles rule the material world and all that it offers. This suit (which is also known as the Suit of Money) has to do with finances, income and the things you do to achieve these. Although the suit typically refers to finances, it may sometimes have to do with the “work” or “task” of maintaining a relationship, or with educational or spiritual pursuits.

Poorly aspected by other cards or shown reversed, the Eight of Pentacles may indicate laziness, carelessness, or a lack of focus and commitment. It can also mean you’re “hammering away” at something without receiving positive results, or that you’re “hammering away” at the wrong thing and it’s time to move on.

Otherwise this card shows that meticulous work and painstaking attention to detail will be rewarded. Whatever your task, job or craft might be, learn as much as you can about it, and give it the consideration and commitment it deserves. This will be well worth the effort in the end.

Are you as cheerful as the Page of Wands?

A figure stands calmly in a desert with a cloudless azure sky overhead and three pyramids rising in the background. He grasps a wand with both hands and examines the top of it. This individual is clothed in bright yellow, with a cape, fringed boots, and a pattern of lizards on a short tunic. This is the Rider Waite deck’s Page of Wands.

Wands denote primal energy and inspiration. Just as the wands in the Tarot deck often sprout branches of greenery, the suit of wands has to do with growth, expansion, creativity, and new life for things, people, ideas, and relationships.

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotPages may represent children or young people, or the childlike qualities and behaviours of joy, innocence, enthusiasm, and playfulness. Negatively, pages may indicate immaturity, naïveté, an inability to make decisions and commitments, and impulsiveness — as in poor impulse control.

If a Page shows up in your reading, it may indicate a person, often a child or a young female. For the suit of Wands, the person may be ginger-haired with a ruddy complexion and light eyes. The individual may be an Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius, will probably be energetic and loyal, and will have a love of learning.

The Page of Wands may be bringing you passion — whether in romance or in a pursuit such as your work or a hobby. The Page means an opportunity is on the horizon for you to achieve your fullest potential — as long as you approach it with child-like happiness and enthusiasm while avoiding overtly dangerous and risky behaviour. So express your individuality and take advantage of this chance to change for the better.
