A lot of people get nervous when the devil card and death card pops out in their readings because they think the cards mean the devil is after them or that they are going to die. What the devil card means is that you are being controlled by another person or you are to focused on material items. This card represents being bond down in life by just about anything. As you can see in the picture of the devil card the two people are chained to his throne, this symbolizes that you are not in control of your life because you are giving up your freedom to something or someone else. You are a victim of your addictions or of another person.
