The Tarot “Death” card appropriately numbered, ”13″, worries many people when it appears in a Tarot reading.
As an experienced psychic, I have seen even the biggest, most strapping of men look distinctly uncomfortable by its presence.
So is there any need to fear it?
Does the Death card literally mean the death of the person having the reading orof someone close?
Remember the Blue Oyster Cult hit, “Don’t Fear the Reaper”?
Well, I’d say it applies to this card.
As unnerving as the picture looks – a ghoulish skeletal figure on horseback cutting everything down in its path – it does not mean physical “death” but rather a “symbolic death”.
The Death card suggests to us that is time to bring something to a close.
Perhaps you have a difficult personal relationship that you should have ended long ago or a business that you have invested much time and money in that is struggling to survive.
This card is suggesting that it time to let go and make way for a new beginning.
Many people have problems letting go of things that are no longer useful to them in life. They hold on because they do not know “how not to”.
So in a way it suggests “progress” is about to be made when this fact is recognised.
If you have asked a question in your Tarot reading and this card should appear there is really no need to query further. The Death card tells us that it has been decided “it is over” “it has ended”
Often it may not be an ending that we would have chosen ourselves but nevertheless one we need to accept in order to move on to the next level.
By doing this positive progress will be made
It says you have closed a chapter of your life and you can start again, renewed and refreshed.
With acceptance of this fact comes peace of mind .
Nature has mastered the art of endings successfully. Every year plants and trees die as autumn approaches but they burst in life again the following spring and start afresh.
Life goes on……
