The 13th card of Tarot, often feared and misunderstood, can be surprisingly beneficial. Don’t judge a card by its name: Death is, above all, the card of new beginnings and rebirth.
While the card of Death holds messages of painful endings, it is also one that holds a message of hope. Something may be lost forever but something new is about to begin. The seed has already been planted. On many versions of this card young flowers and plants are growing from the devastated land. In the horizon the sun is coming up: the hardest part is over.
No such important change can come easily and a new page in life always involves difficult choices and moments. Death calls for faith and the hope that destiny will take you where you need to be.
It is in no way an easy card, but definitely not as dark as what it seems at first.
