Your daily card announces the end of something in your life.
But don’t worry, it can also mean the end of an illness or the separation from old books. Don’t be sad about it, because every end has a new beginning and lets something new arise.
The Death Tarot card is one of the most famous and, at the same time, most feared cards in the Rider/Waite Tarot deck. The fear is often based on the very explicit depiction of the death theme and impermanence.
The card does not predict our own deaths or the deaths of people who love us but, on a more abstract level, gives us clues on how to deal with the theme of impermanence.
The Death is very multifaceted in its meaning and, depending on the current situation in life, can initiate the transition into a new liberating phase of life. Death signals an end to our suffering or martyrdom, as is the case with the card of The Hanged Man.
Thus, you are urged to cast off the past and engage in your new phase of life. Letting go of old habits or relationships that you have acquired for years is a difficult process, but The Death encourages you to finally give them up to enter a new phase in your lives.
Death is also a sign of unforeseen misfortunes in life. Everyone, regardless of gender, age or wealth, experiences situations in his life that are unpredictable and very painful.
These are as much a part of our existence as pleasant and positive experiences. What is decisive is not the kind of life events but how you deal with or what you learn from them.
Especially in the case of serious life crises, it is important to realize that from now on, they belong to your biography and are therefore a part of yourself, just like all the beautiful life moments that you have experienced so far.
As soon as we learn to accept and respect all the parts that make us up, we can swim along in the river of life without fear of sinking.
Change to something new is also a meaning of The Death Tarot card. That can mean external circumstances as well as internal changes.
External circumstances that suddenly change, for example, job loss or relationship breakups, force us to take action and adapt. We try to fill the void left behind with something new.
We then realize how urgent the change in our lives was and feel deep gratitude towards our new life change. Leaving inner attitudes behind is often a long process that requires a lot of strength and reflection.
But in a constantly changing world, we are required to question our inner attitudes and, if necessary, adapt to the new circumstances. Through a flexible mind, we can react to all challenges in life with composure.
