It is the archetype that constrains a person with chains of earthly desires and passions. The archetype of The Devil lets you know that the material and earthly planes are becoming too dominant in your life, that you are starting to succumb to comfortable stagnation and stop striving for change, progress and growth of your personality. However, by constraining a human with chains of dependence The Devil always leaves a choice of whether to remain chained or to choose freedom and the possibility to grow spiritually by refusing only the eternal struggle for success, daily satisfaction or bodily pleasures. The Devil only tempts to accept the rules of his game, but the human is always free to choose his path. It is the archetype of pessimism, depression and cynicism, it beckons to stop believing in the world’s goodness and ideals.
