DEATH TAROT CARD MEANING
THE DEATH TAROT MESSAGE
opportunities for rebirth, regeneration and new things, the death of a relationship… an idea… a belief or a career, the beautiful metamorphosis of letting go of parts of you that are no longer needed, making sure you are not holding onto dead dreams and wishes
What are you letting go of and what are you welcoming in? When you move towards new growth, where does it take you?
Rites, passage and rebirth
EXPERIENCING the Tarot DEATH
(Cough) This dust. This ancient dust. My lungs reek of it. This stuckness. Oh, this sticky place. And my fragmented self wants to fight my way out of these self-made tethers that hold me back. And down. And I see…above… I see a light. I can see it with my heart. (And listen! My heart still beats. I am still awake. I am still alive! ) Sweet nectar. Florals. Faces. I would open my heart and my voice to see the truth… I would see the rebirth that I am being offered. I would see that I can just let it go… and allow the old to decay in order to create the nutrients for the new. The beautiful, fertile grounds will be the brewing pot for the things that I have dreamt of but not found. And for the things I have missed as I held on to old beliefs that have kept me stuck in the mud. I will be still enough… bright enough…. soft enough… fierce enough… I will be enough and I will rise in my rebirth and to awaken to the truth that everything I need is inside of me. And from this perspective of seeing new growth, we notice that a burial and a planting look a whole lot alike.
Pick a spot within the Death card – the mind of the Muse below, the stretching rebirth or the cocoon cave in the middle, the flight at the top or the final stages of consciousness and enter the card at that stage. Look for messages and meaning from the character you meet.
Work with something that is deteriorating. Fleeting.
