The Devil is the card of addiction, sexual desire, codependency, and attachment issues. This card shows two people, a man and a woman, chained to the devil himself. Though it seems like they are being held against their will, look further and you will see that the chains around their neck are quite loose. They have the capability to free themselves if they wish.
The Devil reminds us that while desire is good, taken to an extreme, it becomes deadly. Addictions (whether to drugs, sex, or love) kill loving relationships. Codependency is dangerous, and we must develop our own individuality in a relationship. The Devil also reminds us that the greatest chains are the ones we set upon ourselves. It is up to us if we want to make a change. Our greatest power is within us.
If you are asking about how someone sees you, and you draw the Devil, that means this person sees you as a piece of themselves they wish they didn’t need. They are addicted to you. They see you as something they cannot live without. This could be emotional, financial, or sexual. They have the ability to fix themselves and erase their dependence, but they cannot see how.
The Devil means that they see you as an addiction. Their addiction is extreme and has the potential to ruin your relationship. They see you as attractive, alluring, and compulsive. When they see you, they cannot resist. Their love is twisted by their dependence. They are dangerously chained to your love and attention.
For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the Devil is a sign that they see you as a toxic attachment. You cause them to suffer, but they love it in the wrong ways. They are torn left and right even though you have just met. This creates a foundation for an extremely toxic and crazy relationship. Consider how they see you and how you see them before deciding to start a relationship. Remaining single can sometimes be a better option if you draw the Devil in a reading.
For existing relationships, the Devil means that they see you as a toy to use for pleasure. They have shackled you to the relationship. You both cannot get enough of how you make each other suffer. They see you as someone to fulfill their desires or support them. They may even see you as someone they want to be with long-term because they cannot live without you. This creates a very toxic relationship that you should thoroughly evaluate in order to realize if it is something you actually want.
If you are asking about an ex’s intentions, the Devil shows that they see you as a guilty temptation in their life. They are tempted to get back together with you. They know it is a bad idea, but they nevertheless desire it. How they see you is dangerous for both of your well beings, so be honest with yourself and try to think rationally about this person before letting your temptations overcome your reasoning.
In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the Devil means that they see you as someone to play with. They do not see you as someone to engage with for something as formal as marriage. They don’t care if you are married or not. They simply use you for their desires and do not care for the future of your relationship. However, they also see you as someone they cannot live without, so this could have an implication to marriage if they control their desires.

If you are asking about how someone sees you, and you draw the Devil reversed, that means this person sees you as a renewal in their life. They see you as someone that can help you break the chains of addiction and temptation. They have a positive outlook on the future, and they see you in it. They see you as a positive force in their life amongst many other things bringing them down.
The Devil reversed means that they could also see you as someone they need to break away from. They may feel that the relationship was controlled by dependence and evil desire. They may see you as someone they need to completely eliminate from their life, or someone they can work out the relationship with. However, they see that things need to change between you two.
For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the Devil reversed is a sign that they see you as someone with potential red flags or other qualities that do not work well in a relationship. They see you as someone that has the ability to damage them emotionally if they were to start a relationship. They are cautious with you, but nevertheless see you as someone they are interested in.
For existing relationships, the Devil reversed means that they see you as someone that can change. The relationship has certainly not been perfect, but they have hope. They see and know that you can become the person they always loved. The reversed Devil means that they see you as someone that they can create a lasting relationship with if you make change happen.
If you are asking about an ex’s intentions, the Devil reversed shows that they see you only as someone part of their past. They feel that they have escaped the constraints of your past relationship. They have no hard feelings for you or grudges, but are happy that the relationship is over. They see you as someone that would require too much effort to reunite with and restart the relationship.
In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the Devil reversed means that they see you as someone that they could get married to or break up with. It can go either way. How they see you is fully based on your future actions in the relationship. If you put in the effort and show them the passion and love they deserve, then they will see you as someone they desire marriage with. If you do the opposite, then they see you as someone not worth their time when considering commitment.

For relationships and feelings, the Devil reveals the darker side of lust and desire. Chemistry can be a great thing, but taken to an extreme, can become an addiction. No matter how tempting, unhealthy behavioral patterns ultimately do not produce the results that we want. The Devil serves as a warning sign, urging us to identify and bring the issues out of the dark and into broad daylight. With honest communication, we can build a solid foundation for the future.
