Death


“Plant the seed of a bright future. The universe is at your side to steer you towards stability, security, and receiving a good yield.“

The appearance of the Death card symbolizes metaphorical death. It invites big changes, personal transformation, endings, shredding your old skin (ego) to embrace your new self. The image of Kali, the goddess of love, birth, and rebirth, symbolizes endings and beginnings. To accept the new, the old must be released. She is often misunderstood for relating her energy to the brutal glory on the battlefield. But she is the protector, lover, guide, and mother who motivates you to accept the changes for the best and to weave a remarkable story of your life. Standing on the body of a soldier signifies her efforts to fight for the innocent. Although she seems savage to extinguish life, but her rage is for those who deserve that. She wants you to learn this vital lesson in life that what appears to be a loss could be a signal for happy beginnings.

Death is a horrible word, and in tarot cards, the death card is considered a powerful card. But it does not imply our departure from this world. It hints at the transition to the next phase of life. Feel the beauty of death because death is an integral part of being alive. The setting sun also gives hope for a new day and rebirth. Death is the indicator of transformation, big changes, and personal evolution. Do not be afraid of changes. The appearance of this card implies the needful changes in your lifestyle to let go of all the useless things, even attitudes and behaviors, to culminate renewal and success.

Forgetting the past is not easy, but once you allow yourself to close old doors that are no longer serving you and open new doors, you will see the constructive life patterns and visualize possibilities. Enthusiastically welcome the positive and transformational force in your life. You might be feeling as if you are the only one caught in the whirlwind of sudden and unexpected changes. Resistance will only add more to your pain. It is the perfect time to bid farewell to old bad habits, painful memories, and forgetting your doubts to pave new paths and unlock advantages for yourself.

Death card rules Scorpio- a passionate water sign, the scorpions are akin to regenerative powers and positive transformations. Their intuitive and curious nature steers them to dig deep into the things to reveal the truth. One has to be careful to cheat on them because a wounded Scorpio never forgets the pain. You must leave your past behind to live authentically. It would be highly beneficial if you meditate, read and study universal laws and make spiritual development your top priority in life.
