Tevet is a month of seeking clarity in darkness. Tevet is the month our vices have the most opportunity to enslave us. Tevet is the crucible. Without this difficult month the promise of Kislev’s rainbow can never be realized as the star of Shevat. Anything we did in Kislev that we shouldn’t have, will rear its ugly head in Tevet. Spend too much? Bills arrive in Tevet. Eat too much? Step on the scale and you’ll see it now.
But that’s the negative way to look at it. The devil card also offers us the opportunity to realize that things that we think are binding us, aren’t. It allows us to see that often we bind ourselves to these situations. So you spent too much, now’s your chance to address the emotional and spiritual reasons you may have done that and free yourself from debt. So you ate too much; now’s the chance to really start addressing the emotional and spiritual reasons you aren’t caring for your body.
