In tarot the death card is often misjudged as a bad card, a card you’d never want to see in your reading. People see the death card and automatically think it means, well, death. But that’s only a small part of the card’s meaning. Yes, the death card can be a symbol of someone dying, however, more often than not the death card represents change. The death card symbolizes the end of one cycle. Something is ending, and making room for something new. In some cases that something new could be far more beneficial than whatever is ‘dying’.
The death card isn’t a card to fear. It holds a lot of possibility and growth.
That is why it is one of my favourite of the tarot cards.
