This card is a challenge, in its many paradoxical connotations, and in how we choose to apply its significance. Primarily, the Devil invites us to examine what we are bound by – our rules or our passions? How do we operate within limitations or expectations set by the world around us, and how do we honor our own boundaries, our own fantasies? What constrains us? and do we know how to use those constraints to our advantage? When to cast them aside? Also as Mercury turns direct tomorrow, we can take this as a note to be mindful of what we have gained from its restraining retrograde influences, and what might become liberated with a more direct approach to communication.
