Depends what you understand the phrase "what crowns you" to mean, what the circumstances are that the reading is addressing, and ev en what the Devil card in your deck looks like: for example, some time ago I did a reading for a bloke where the Devil came up as one of the cards in his "home and family" column, which otherwise looked quite sunny. That particular deck has a large spider on the Devil-card. We discussed the card extensively - I simply couldn't get ti to "fit" the rest of the reading. He then went home, still puzzled, went down in to his basement - and found it crawling with spiders! The card was giving him a very direct warning. Which doesn't help with being crowned by it, but certainly illustrates how Devils in different decks might be trying to get different messages across.
As to "being crowned by" the Devil, let's assume that the Devil is here referring to a risk through temptation of some kind. Let's also assume that "being crowned by" is once again being dreadfully literal (it happens quite frequently, I find). I'd discuss it esoterically in a number of ways depending on the client, but I'd also say something like: "Also, safeguard against being tempted to do something silly like speeding or driving against traffic lights or taking a short-cut by walking through a building site - who knows, there could be a real risk of head injuries if you give in to that temptation."
