I can hear people such in a deep breath and look mortified whenever the Death card appears in a spread.  Then the panic sets in and the question ‘am I going to die’ springs to their lips.

The media has not helped the hysteria surrounding this card and I believe it is partly why people are scared of the Tarot.  As a Tarot Reader, it’s important that I set the facts straight with my clients.

Ok, first Death can mean death.  It’s inevitable and will happen to each and everyone of us someday.  However, that is the most extreme meaning and looking at it from a logical perspective, it is not very likely that it does foretell the Grim Reaper’s visit.

The Death card indicates a change.  A change which is coming whether you like it or not but not in the drastic, stressful way that the Tower predicts.

Change is something that scares the living daylights (no pun intended) out of most people but when they can look back with hindsight at the period in their life when the change occured they can see it happended for a reason and the change brought new rewards.

So, next time the Death card comes up in your reading, don’t go into a panic.  Ask yourself what areas of your life need changing (or are changing) and how you can benefit  from the different circumstances it will bring about.

Remember, Death doesn’t have to be grim 😉
