Death Tarot Card Meaning

What is the meaning of XIII Death Tarot Card?In general, I see Death in Tarot as a call for acceptance.

Short Meaning Of The Death

  • Farewell
  • End of a phase
  • Final separation
  • Unnoticed farewell

All in all, Death actually heralds the end of a phase. Nevertheless, you do not have to worry that you will lose everything now. It is not the case that you have to let go of something irretrievably. I understand Death in Tarot as a new beginning. Because even if you lose something, you will win it anew in another place.

I recommend you to be attentive and not to let go. The message holds profound transmissions for you. Take your time to absorb the energy of this tarot card and process it completely. Everything will be fine, if you allow it. Don’t let negative feelings overwhelm you, but motorize yourself and tell yourself that you can do anything if you really want to. Your new stage of life is waiting for you!

General Interpretation Of The Tarot Card Death

Now is the time to let go. Many things say goodbye in a person’s life without really being noticed. Examples are phases of life, personality parts, dreams or eternally postponed things. But also in the circle of friends, there can be farewells that are not pronounced, but gradually come to pass. People themselves can die or beloved pets can also die. According to this, Death does all honor to its name in the Tarot.

Death In Love And Relationship

With regard to love, Death in the Tarot heralds the end of a relationship phase. For me this does not mean the final end. It is rather about taking the relationship to a new level. Nevertheless, the end of a relationship is not impossible. Here the consideration is to be evaluated individually on the relationships.

My tip: It makes no sense to hold on to a relationship if it is obvious that there are enough signs that it is better to leave. Here the saying goes – one door closes, another one opens.

Death In Money And Career

Also in the professional field, Death in Tarot symbolizes the end of a phase. Often it can be a change of position, in which you say goodbye to your previous position. It is best to go deep inside yourself and examine your individual situation. Ask yourself the questions whether you are satisfied with your current position or whether your superior agrees with the way you work. Have you received much praise or recognition from colleagues recently? All these are important questions that will give you the answer to the exact interpretation of Death in the Tarot. Of course, Death can also stand for a termination, but you should not be so negative about the message.

The Meaning Of The Reversed Tarot Card Death

The reversed tarot card “Death” shows you that you are resigning too much right now. Also arbitrariness is an important term that reflects your current situation. It is not a productive state to pretend to be “dead” for too long. Surely a short break is no problem to become more productive again, but I do not recommend you to stay too long.
