In addition, the archetype of scapegoat suits the Devil in that we can blame “the devil” or devilish circumstances rather than accept responsibility for our actions. The Devil is a messenger. He shares that it’s time to pay attention to our feelings so that we don’t end up indulging in self-sabotaging behavior.

The Devil is associated with the sign of Capricorn, an energy that understands responsibility and hard work. The Devil offers us the choice to either keep repeating behaviors that keep us stuck or take responsibility for the changes we wish to see in our life. When we see this card, we understand the choice is ours.
