The Devil – Shadowscapes Tarot Deck
I. Description of the Devil Shadowscapes Tarot
She listlessly watched the surrounding walls and forgot the fact that she was not completely imprisoned, that there still was a very vast world out there. The sky was sobbing with melodies of beauty and freedom, but she bowed her head, snuggled to escape from fear, creating boundaries, walls, and shackles, but they were like weak threads wrapped her, and the key to liberation was too close. You wish you could scream to wake her up. “Let’s try turning your eyes for once and looking around to see!”
But her ears were now indifferent to any voice, there was only the infatuation of the Devil left. All she heard and felt now was Devil’s dance above her, controlling, instigating, suppressing her to the bottom. His hooves jumped down to the joyful and mocking tune with the temptations and the bonds of will. He kept dancing and laughing arrogantly with the knowledge that helped him to easily imprison any fierce soul.

III. The Devil Shadowscapes Tarot in a spread
There is an impressive detail is that the crown in Lover Shadowscapes Tarot was taken out of the happy couple by the pigeon, then in the Devil, it was brought back to the imprisoned woman. It shows that the couple was too immersed in love to give up everything, and that imprisoned woman was too greedy regardless of everything to get the power she desires!
The wall of her confinement was very thin and just a form, the handcuffs were attached to a thin thread that could be broken with just a little strength, not to mention there was a key right above her head. But she just bent down and panicked, she did not dare to face everything, she let greed and cowardice take control of herself. The wall was the embodiment of humanoid figurines with all the nuances of the panic, helplessness, regret, longing for freedom.
She allowed the devil to be her master, controlling her, trapping her heart in its sticky, cold, and frightening hands. She voluntarily plunged herself into that trap, where there are the power, the ambition, and ruthless but tempting desires. Did she exchange her heart for the devil to achieve such things?
As for the devil, it is the embodiment of a cold-hearted, intelligent, wise, confident person who knows what he will and have to do. He always has a plan for everything he does, he always understands what his prey wants to lure them to automatically fall into the trap, he knows how to control them and cleverly makes them stay so that he can get them to follow his wishes. He always foresees and always judges things correctly. He is careful and detailed. He is strong, ambitious and powerful. He is dangerous and full of temptation. But he is miserable because he is lonely.
