The Devil is the card for the week ahead, March 9 to 15 2020.
In this deck, The Druid Craft Tarot, we have a feeling of danger and perhaps a lack of awareness.
After all, the couple in the image is depicted naked and asleep, totally vulnerable to the huge horned figure approaching them.
The connection to the Corona Virus is easy to make.
Thing where I live, in Canada, are good so far, but not so much in many other countries.
I am from Italy and my family and friends live there. Everyone I know is good and healthy, but there is apprehension. The situation is constantly evolving and the restrictions to everyday life for everyone living there are increasing rapidly.
The Devil card represents situations that are unhealthy, where power is not distributed equally and where fear obscure judgement.
Let me give you an example of how the card could be expressed in your life in the next few days.
Under the negative effects of fear people often go to extremes.
You could behave badly and justify your greed, selfishness or rude behaviour as necessary, when in reality it is not.
On the opposite extreme, you may accept a bad situation out of fear of change.
Do you know the expression “Better the devil you know than the one you don’t”?
Under this thinking people stay in abusive or unhappy relationships, or in dead end jobs that suck the life out of them.
Wake up! If you live with the Devil, you need to come up with a good plan to move out as soon as possible.
There are bad lovers out there, but there are also a lot of nice human beings.
Other jobs are available with better pay, better hours or nicer bosses or colleagues.
To sum it up.
This week pay attention to your surroundings and to the people you deal with.
Be fair and don’t let others take advantage of you.
Check the fine print before signing any contract.
Also, face your fears and your dark secrets. Deal with what matters, do not procrastinate.
