Tarot 15 - The Devil Picture

Upright - The Devil is all about addictions, about the temptations and obsessions that lure us, capture us, and which we, ourselves, refuse to escape even though we have the key to our chains. In a positive sense, it can also mean letting go of inhibitions and puritanical restrictions - sometimes we need to live on the wild side, be excessive and indulge.

Upside-down - Turn the card upside-down and the Devil is dethroned. You were in danger, being reeled in by someone dangerous. You held out, however, or changed your mind, eluding temptation and enslavement.

Creature – A Hellhound is a supernatural dog, found in mythology, folklore and fiction. Features that have been attributed to Hellhounds include black fur, glowing red or sometimes glowing yellow eyes, super strength or speed, ghostly or phantom characteristics, foul odor, and sometimes even the ability to talk. Legend says that if someone is to stare into its eyes three times or more, the person will die.
