The Devil (15=6)

The Devil (15=6)

The Devil (15=6) in the Transformational Tarot deck represents an intriguing and often misunderstood challenge. The Devil (15=6) is not some malignant force before whom we are powerless. Rather The Devil (15=6) is a human creation. We bind ourselves in how we choose to interact with others, in how we set limits to our own behavior and our own capabilities.
                   It simply seems easier to put the blame on our lack of progress outside ourselves, on the things that happen to us, and the situations we face. But in truth we each decide how we are going to respond to our world and its challenges, the card of The Devil (15=6) merely helps us find a scapegoat.
                   Therefore, this card does indeed represent a major challenge for each one of us. Will we accept that our attitude means accepting responsibility for our behavior, our response to whatever conditions we are faced with? Will we meet this challenge so vital to our growth?
