Featured Card of the Day – The Devil – Monstarot from Joanna Nelson Studio

Artist: Joanna Nelson

Obsession, addiction, excess

Artist Interpretation

Two loosely-chained micro-monsters stand before a mischievous, devil-like monster. The chains are loose enough to escape from, but the two still stand as if in a trance, eyes glossed over, giving into the illusion.

Card Meaning

You feel bound on a course of action, as though things are beyond your control, but the reality is that the choice lies within you. The Devil’s followers are chained, eyes unseeing, but their hands are not bound, the chains are loose. The metaphorical devil – your own desires, temptations and compulsions – has no real power over you, except what you give to it. It’s a harsh truth to face, and it’s not easy to let go of practices that offer immediate gratification, but you do need to look at the long-term result. You can change anything you want to, if you want it enough.

  1. this card resonates deeply of existing issues I have right now…so I must just let things take their course because the devil has no control over me. Thank you for sharing this with me…I did need to read it. Blessings of love & light…:)
