DEATH in The RIDER WAITE Deck of Tarot Cards
Endings, new beginnings, change, let go of old.
Mostly black and white, which are opposites and represent positive and negative, day and night, yin and yang and duality. The yellow represents the dawning of new a day, new ideas and new beginnings.
The White Rose is the Mystic Rose, which is the symbol of Life. Between the two pillars shine the sun of immortality.
The Death card rarely means a physical death. It is about massive change and transformation.
Something is coming to an end, in its present form, and there are much better times ahead.
Change can be very difficult because we are often moving into unknown territory and the fear of the unknown can be much greater than the familiarity of the present situation, even if that situation is not what we want and is not serving us.
It can be very painful and incredibly difficult to let go of the past and to embrace new ideas, situations and people.
It is during tough times that we learn the most about ourselves and that we grow the most. This is likely to be a very challenging time.
See you next week.
With abundant blessings.
