What does the Devil mean in a love reading?

Is the Devil a good card to get in a question about your love life?

The answer to this question is yes. The Devil is not all bad when it shows up in your love reading cards. It means there is passion in your relationship. The Devil speaks of love that feels like an addiction. It can be the kind of love you feel you are unable to live without.

Most of us have experienced being so in love with someone we are unable to sleep and eat. It is the kind of emotions that enslave us and affect us on a physical level. Whether this is lasting love is another question. Due to the intensity seen in the Devil it can become a relationship of pain. It has to evolve from its early stages to become a healthy and balanced relationship. The destructive part of the Devil happens when one of the parts in the relationship evolve at a slower rate than the other part. This is when stalking and abusive behaviour rears its ugly head.

When passion turns to pain the shackles of the devil tightens. To escape pain many turn to drugs and alcohol, or they escape in other ways; such as work. Other escape geographically. To get a release from the Devil’s chains the best thing you can do is to escape into a fun activity that you can share with your partner. Do something together that will put a smile on your faces.

If you are single and looking for love and you get the Devil in your reading it often means you will meet someone you will feel addicted to. Look at the other cards for a clue if this relationship will be evolving into harmony or if it will be destructive. The Devil means you might find someone who will not be entirely what they seem, and you might be on the receiving end of someone who has an obsessive personality. If you both become obsessed with each other this relationship will most likely become very committed very fast, and you might discover later down the track that you didn’t know each other as well as you thought.

With the Devil, it is often other agendas that connect people together. If you are already in a relationship and the Devil shows up then there is something binding you together that feels like it is more important than life itself. Children and grand-children often become a priority. Making sure everyone has got what they need can become an obsession. When the Devil card comes into play there are often worthiness issues fuelling the behaviour of the seeker. Making sure you are good enough for the people you love. Hidden anxieties and worries you are not allowing people to see can be a factor. On the surface everything looks fine; but underneath you feel weary. You might even feel like you are unable to be yourself; you are being who you think your loved ones want you to be.
