Death – Key 13 – Major Arcana

Death. Rider Waite Tarot.
Death. Rider Waite Tarot.

Death is the herald of change!! This is an often misunderstood card that strikes unnecessary fear. In the sequence of the Major Arcana, Death comes after the Hanged Man. There is no surprise that it has been numbered 13!!

Death heralds that a big change is coming into your life. This transformation will occur whether you are ready to accept it or not, and going with the flow is the only manner to complete the metamorphosis that must manifest.

The dreaded card is a well-known joke within the Tarot community, as the majority of movies showing Tarot Cards ( especially in the 20th century) show a Death card which typically conveys a portentously ominous future. The change here, however- unlike the Tower which signifies an abrupt change- is a slow harmonious and natural conclusion.

Coming after the Hanged Man in the Major Arcana, Death is a welcome change and ushers in a rebirth when troubles fall away. There is a saying that you can never step into the same waters in a running river twice. That is the same in life. Each moment dies to birth a new one. Celebrations are also moments of change. The bachelor or hen parties were traditionally hosted to mark the death of single life! The baby showers mark the death of that being of state before one is responsible for another life!

In the picture we see, the King lies Dead, since he is terrified, the maiden knows its inevitable and the Bishop welcomes Death in all its glory for he knows that Death is but a change and the River flows on!! The child who is not yet set in its ways, and still remembers the realm of light, welcomes death with flowers in her hands. The boat on the river shows life goes on, or the soul goes on. And the most glorious of sights, the Rising sun foretelling a new day is on the background of this card!!

Death then becomes a card that doesn’t just foretell a change is coming but also talks about our attitude towards that change. When you draw the Death card, remember that You have the courage to face what’s coming up. You are ready to be reborn, let go of all that is no longer necessary. Change can be terrifying for some people. Even when that change is what one has been dreaming about, the precipice of change can be scary. Remember, you have the courage, you can step into a new life, you can embrace change and You Will Thrive!!

Meditation on Death

“The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude”

Oprah Winfrey.

  1. What change is coming up for you?
  2. Are you ready to ride the tide?
  3. What do you need to let go of to move into your new life?
  4. Visualize your new life.
