The Devil as a Daily Tarot Oracle Card
Oracle Message: Your choices are a test of your character.
The daily grind wears us down and can often feel like all work and no play. Or, all play and no work. The Devil works in extremes, there is no balance. You are tied to your desires and what you believe you want. With the Devil card, there is no difference between a workaholic and a gambler, or a compulsive liar and a religious zealot – no room is allowed for anthing else.
So how does this relate to your day? In essence you will be tied to things you cannot stop or have no control over. Events will work against you and there will be no let up. Every ounce of your energy will be required just to get through the day and it promises to be demanding.
For some of you, you will be forced out of your comfort zone, for others your patience will be tested no end. There is a tendency to lose your temper, get lost in temptation or mundanely, waste the day playing solitaire or binge watching a boxset when you know you are needed elsewhere.
