Death Card in the Tarot
The Interpretation and Meaning of the Death Card
The Death card is probably one of the most misunderstood and most famous
cards in the Tarot deck. Without a doubt it is the card that causes
most fear in a Reading and yet it rarely, if ever, symbolises an actual
The Death Tarot card is numbered 13 in the Major Arcana section of the 78 card Tarot deck. A Tarot Reader will interpret this particular Tarot card in relation to where it appears in a Tarot Spread and the relationship with surrounding cards.
Most often it indicates a powerful transformation in the life of the Querant as it shows a time of absolute endings and absolute beginnings. It is death followed by rebirth. It is an ending to something in the Querants life that will initiate great change.
The Death card can be seen as a life changing Tarot card if it turns up in a Tarot Spread in a Tarot Reading. A Querant (person receiving a Tarot Reading) should be expecting some major endings and beginnings in their life.
The Tarot cards and their meanings have intrigued and fascinated many people over the centuries.
The Tarot consists of 78 cards divided into two sections, the Minor and Major Arcana. The word Arcana means secret.
The cards, therefore, are a collection of the secrets that can be revealed in a Tarot Reading. The cards convey many messages because of the richness of their images and connections.
It is the interpretation, guided by psychic intuition of the Tarot Reader that can verbalise these messages to pass onto others in Tarot Readings.
In relation to someone’s personality the traits that the Death card portrays are that of a person who is not afraid to adapt and evolve in given situations. They have learnt some valuable life lessons.
In relation to family and friends the Death Tarot card represents a turning point in relationships. One chapter will have to close in order for a new improved one to begin.
In relation to someone’s health the Death card shows that a period of ill health will end. Or that good health maybe threatened.
In relation to someone’s love life the Death Tarot card heralds an end of either that relationship or a period of bad times.
In relation to a person’s career the Death Tarot card suggests that transformation is inevitable. One door will close to allow for another one to open.
Rely on the other surrounding cards in the spread when doing a Tarot Reading to clarify what the transformation may be. It must be stressed this change is not optional but something required and unchangeable.
Positive connotations associated with this card are endings, transformation, clearance and change.
Negative connotations associated with this card are stagnation, loss of opportunity or fear of change.
Some of the questions the appearance of the Death Tarot card throws up when it appears in a Tarot reading are:
What would you like to transform in your life? What’s stopping you?
Have you ever experienced a bad situation from which you learned nothing?
What do you most fear about transforming of yourself?
If the Death card is prominent in a Tarot Spread it can show that you may need to take steps to force change for yourself. Treat this time as a blessing as you will have the ability to make major changes in your life.
You will experience the ‘death’ of something to allow for the ‘birth’ of something far better. Transformation is the key word as far as the appearance of the Death card is concerned.
Reversed Tarot Death Card Meaning
The reversed Tarot card meaning of the Death Tarot card can show that you will go through some painful and unwanted changes.
Another meaning of the reversed Death Tarot card is that of not facing up to an ending. This can mean that a relationship has crumbled and you are not prepared to accept it.
The Tarot Death card can often show a need for embracing newness in your life and being open to exciting options. The most potent and powerful way to do this is by having a Prosperity Spell cast.
Having a Spell cast can bring miraculous results very swiftly and can literally change your destiny for the better.
If you have an interest in spirituality, are intrigued by astrology, fascinated by Tarot cards or captivated by Psychic abilities, then the next logical step is to look into the power of Magic.
Having a Spell cast is Magic you can believe in.
And even if you are slightly sceptical, uncertain or wary, powerful positive energies combined with expert Spell casting will soon have you convinced in the power of Magic.
