Humanly desires is The Devil love Tarot Meaning. When it appears in general, love, career, or business reading, you can be assured that the situation will revolve around the physical world, for better or worst (but usually worst).
Sex and greed are indicated by The Devil. You may choose a relationship based on physical attributes instead of emotional ones.
Because The Devil represents earthly pursuits, addiction is a possibility. There may be an addiction to drugs, alcohol, or an emotional bond which you just cannot break. Enormous amounts of effort are needed to overcome your vices.
Abuse and cruelty are also predicted with The Devil. You could be the victim or the aggressor. There is a possibility that you have fallen into a trap. You Believe that you are always the victim, but this is not the case; others may have suffered at your hands.
The Devil also warns you that your pursuits are destined for failure. What you are pursuing will bring you nothing but anxiety and emotional pain. However, you will keep going back for more because you cannot help yourself.
Historically, (pre Rider-Waite Tarot) The Devil card represented an occurrence which, although it was predestined, was not intended purely for evil. An example of this would be the destruction of a relationship that is not meant to be so that you can go out and found someone better. Like most negative Tarot cards, there is always a brighter future beyond The Devil.
The Devil Love Tarot Meaning
The Devil does not look good for love readings. It can predict abuse and control either on you or your partner. Often, ill-treatment may appear more psychological than physical. One of you will want to dictate what the other does, says, acts, and feels.
I have performed many love orientated Tarot readings where The Devil has appeared because one of the partners has addiction issues. Usually, this is a sign that your lover will struggle with their addiction throughout their lifetime. The sober partner is going to have to either accept that recovery is going to be a life long commitment or move on.

The Devil Feelings Tarot Meaning
If you’re asking your Tarot cards whether someone has feelings for you, The Devil is a bad omen. This card means that they have intentions which you do not desire. For example, they know they can manipulate your emotions and use your feelings to their advantage. Their attraction to you is also purely physical. In relationships, they’re out for themselves.
The Devil Future Tarot Meaning
Unless it is a reading which involves your own greed, power, and influence, The Devil is not a good card to get in the future of a Tarot reading. In these cases, it can represent plans which are doomed for failure. Because you are so emotionally invested in the situation, you will not see the writing on the wall and stop when you should; you will keep pushing for this thing to work when the odds are against you.
For readings that do involve you reading your own power, greed, or influence, the future of this matter looks favorable in the sense that it will work out, but you will have to sacrifice your morals and values to succeed. By the end of this matter, you’re going to be questioning what type of person are you to have done the things which you have done.
When it lands in an outcome position of a love reading, The Devil can mean that your relationship will fail in the future, but you and your lover will remain emotionally and spiritually bonded. This bond could be because of the control issues or because of something less devious (such as having a child together).
Yes or No with The Devil Love Tarot Meaning
General – I would read The Devil as a no but, because of its nature, I know that won’t stop you from pursuing what you have asked about. However, if you’re willing to do anything, then The Devil is a yes.
Do they like me? –. Yes, but they want to use you for their own selfish needs.
Am I pregnant? – In most cases, I would not interpret The Devil as a card which is positive for pregnancy. However, although Tarot is no substitute for medical advice, I have seen this card pop up to represent pregnancies to exes you no longer wish to be connected to.
Is this relationship going to last? – This relationship will last as long as your partner can be bothered with you.
Does the future of this look promising? – The future of this matter does not look promising unless you are trying to obtain money, power, status, or influence.
Am I going to reconcile with my ex? – Reconciliations do not seem likely unless your ex is going to use you for sex or for somewhere to stay.
The Devil as a Negative, Weakness or Obstacle
In a Tarot spread, The Devil often appears in a negative, weakness, or obstacle position when someone in the matter (either the seeker, their lover, or friend) does not have pure motives and is driven by the wrong things.
The Devil will appear as a negative when someone in the matter is jealous, greedy, or sexually intense. They do not want a relationship or career for the right reasons. In these cases, all rarely ends well.
The Devil as a Positive, Strength or Advantage
There will be times when The Devil appears as a positive, or your Tarot cards will advise you that you should act like The Devil. In these cases, The Devil predicts that you will step over others to become a winner. Your desire is strong enough that you will do what it takes to get what you want.
I have seen The Devil appear as an advantage to symbolize the fact that the seeker is magnetic. There is something about you which causes people to want to give you the things you want. Everyone involved in the matter has a supernatural drawn towards you.
Finally, I have seen The Devil appear as a positive when the seeker has done something wrong, but they will get away with it, especially when it appears in combination with a card such as the Seven of Swords. So, if you have cheated on your partner, or stole something, your deception will not be exposed, and if it is, you can manipulate your way out of any trouble you land in.
