Today’s card is Death. Experiencing change and transformation can feel like dying.
I recently rearranged a room in my apartment at the suggestion of a friend. Once we had moved everything around, every piece of furniture in the room was in a different location than it originally was. I complained bitterly about how this new arrangement was not going to work. I felt awful and I resented my friend for suggesting the changes. I felt like I had betrayed myself for taking the suggestions.
I fought the urge to put everything back the way it was. I went out for a little while and when I came back I felt better. The next day, I loved the new arrangement . My friend was right — it really did make a positive difference. It’s amazing how we hold on to the smallest things even when they are no longer useful. Most times, the pain of letting is well worth the rewards of holding hands with the future.
The card for today is Death. It’s not as scary as it sounds. Think of it simply as change and transformation. It’s letting go of what no longer serves you. It could be a person, place, or thing. It could be as big as giving up a relationship or as small as giving up coffee (or maybe that’s a big thing too!). Perhaps you have an outdated idea that you are tossing away for a new outlook on life.
Whatever is changing in your life, it will be for the better. In the horizon, a new day is being born.
Hi, all. Today’s card is Death, which is all about endings—as well as beginnings. Circumstances and attitudes that no longer serve your higher good will be fading out of the picture. Some examples are the end of a job (quitting, firing, retirement), the end of a relationship, or a decision to halt production on a project that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.
But whether this is a sad experience or not depends on your attitude. If you were blindsided and didn’t see the changes coming, this may feel like an unwelcome change. But sometimes things happen gradually and it gets to the point where enough is enough. It simply could be a situation that has come to its natural conclusion.
Sometimes the Death card is a sign that you are the one who should let go, that you should move on because there is nothing more to be gained from the current situation. But sometimes this card shows that the decision is out of your hands. Something is leaving your life and you don’t have a say in it. Either way, the best way to handle the situation is to grieve the loss if you must but don’t resist the leaving. Holding on would be a waste of time.
Don’t forget that story is not over. The ending indicated here is making a way for a new beginning. Eventually, you will see, if you haven’t already, that this so-called death can be a transformation into something much better.
