The Death Card
The Death card signals that one major phase in your life is ending, and a new one is going to start. You just need to close one door, so the new one will open. It represents “transformation” or change. It is seen as a sign that something is coming to an end and to prepare for new growth. The Death card almost always means that a slow, but unrelenting change is coming or is in process. This is a force pretty much outside of your personal control, so the best way to handle the change is to accept that it is happening, don’t fight it, and don’t worry about doing anything until you have your insight.
The Death Card (Reversed)
The Death Card, when Reversed, signals that the changes that are about to come into your life are to be less intense as compared to the upright card. You may be staying in a relationship or a situation that is dead, out of duty and obligation. Things will change. It also points out that it is time to let go instead of resisting, because if you choose not to, the Universe will do it for you. While things inevitably end, they also clear the way for something new. It’s our wake-up call to fully embrace the present moment and the few things that are actually within our control. You will be given a second chance.
