The figure XV is printed on the Devil card. He is stood upright on a golden throne. Like Lucifer, he wields light with the help of a flaming torch. There is stagnant water beneath his throne.
There are two characters at his sides, with a cord tied around each of their necks. We cannot see their hands as they are hidden behind their backs. The Devil card is positive; it is a source of energy, an omnipresent strength of desire. This card will bring things to light and show the way, brutishly but realistically. If the cards surrounding the Devil are negative, however, then this card will mean nothing but bad news: break-ups, being torn apart, destructive desires of passion, etc.
The Devil can also be a sign of a future betrayal, or illusions that could be mistaken as real.
Drawn face up:
The Devil card drawn upright is not a very good sign, as it is its negative aspects that have to be interpreted. There will be unwanted upheaval in the consultant's life. They will need to confront danger. The Devil card is destruction and evil; the bad takes over. This card can mean health problems for the consultant, a lack of energy, or dark, depressing thoughts. The Devil is also a sign of emotional dependence and so submission to another person.
Its meanings: submission, evil, lust, destruction
When the Devil card is drawn upside-down, however, everything instantly becomes a bit better. It is a source of mental and sexual energy. The consultant will be blessed with infinite magnetism, seducing everyone around them. They will be successful in their actions. This is the sign of a prosperous period in the person' life. The changes that will happen in their lives will be welcomed rather than just accepted. The person will be filled with energy.
Its meanings: magnetism, sex, wealth, seduction
If the Devil card is placed upside-down, it is the card of luck and success. It is a sign of power and wealth. Its influence can become negative when facing the other way, if the cards surrounding it dictate so.
