I just did a simple 3 card spread of past-present-future in honor of the full moon in Sagittarius. Iím going through a tough time with ďburn outĒ type symptoms. Last year, I got divorced and my mother died a couple of months after that. Itís been rough but Iím working on my mental recovery. I thought I was making progress but last week I had a bit of a set back.

Past - Death
This seems relevant. Purging, letting go of the past, transformation. The divorce and the death of my mother are very literal endings. Yes, this is definitely making sense to me.

Present - 10 of wands
Also makes sense to me. Hard work, extra responsibility, feeling burned out. Yeah, Iím feeling it. Also, the end of a cycle, youíre almost there.

Bonus Present - 6 of wands
There was a card stuck and I intuitively placed it as a bonus card for the present. This is a very validating card and made me tear up a little bit. Progress, recognition, succes. Reaching a milestone, youíre being cheered on. Thank you, Universe, I needed this card.

Future - The Devil
This is such a cold shower after the 6 of wands. I donít like to swear but I couldnít help it when I turned this card. Shadow self, addiction, restriction. Being confronted with your own darkness, toxic relationship. NoooooooÖ, I donít want it.

Can anybody help me to see the benefits of pulling the Devil card as the one describing my future?

As it is a full moon type spread, Iím probably shown what I need to let go off. But it still seems like a pretty challenging card to me. Any suggestions are welcome.

Maybe someone will chime in. I know Death is a new beginning. Not sure about the Devil card, though.

Thank you for your reply, Randall.

Iíve searched a little bit more on internet and like difficult transits, challenging tarot cards also provide the opportunity to become more aware of certain behavior. Iím having a difficult time right now because Iíve kept going for so long without honoring my own needs. Iím a very practical person and tend to ignore my emotions. It has blown up in my face and now Iím experiencing burn out symptoms. The Devil card is connected to Capricorn and Saturn with lots of focus on the material world and not taking good care of yourself.

In that context, this card is asking me to take a look at the behavior that is focused on material well being but is harming me in the long run. I need to take better care of myself. The shackles or thought patterns that keep me in my position, can be taken off at any time. I need to free myself from their hold.
