Temptation Upright-Description Of The Card: Sensual desires. The need to be controlling. Something deep and dark within the psyche is personified as temptation or addiction. Tempted by forces one cannot control. Obsession in the form of envy.
Temptation Upright-Interpretation Of The Card: The Temptation card is not always a bad card, because it can mean permanence. It is a good sign if it shows up in a reading if the questioner is asking about marriage or committed relationships under consideration. At other times, however, it does tend to show circumstances that are initially attractive, but will become an inescapable prison over time. This card is associated with the temptations of the flesh, of a lust that does not subside. So signs point to a passionate love affair or being held in the thrall of love by the wrong type of person. This card also indicates addictions of all kinds, pleasurable at first, yet ultimately destructive.
The Temptation card can also signify greed and materialistic attitudes that allow no spiritual values to alleviate their negative effect on the soul. It is important to remember addiction and temptation are tyrants and harsh Masters demanding service in the form of allowing no independence of thought or vision.
If this card shows up in your reading, it is a warning that you are refusing to see the destructive consequences of your own actions and choices. There may be an immovable obstacle in your path. Direct confrontation will never work when this card appears, so cunning and stealth will be your best course of action against difficulties.
When the Temptation card is in a primary position in your reading, question your intentions. Are you doing something that is ultimately destructive, spiteful or wounding to yourself or others? If you find that this is, the appearance of the card may signal your final opportunity to change direction before it is too late.
