this is perhaps the most-feared card of all the tarot cards. Many people think that this card predicts death–literally. WRONG. First of all, tarot cards DO NOT PREDICT anything. Tarot Deck basically serves as a guide and allows one to connect with his or her subconsious mind. Reading tarot cards do not predict anything. If it does, i will be better off predicting when i will strike lottery instead of sticking to my stressful day job. So get this point very clear before we proceed. Do not fear the Death card, it is not meant to be a threatening card.
There is skeletal death dressed in black robes or armor. There is also a flag which has a white rose depicted on it. A rising sun is also often seen. There are also other figures seen in the picture, the most common reoccurung figure being children.
The Fool left the tree where he last hanged on and moves towards a field. He sees the rising sun and a skeleton dressed in black armor. The skeleton was seated on a white horse. The Fool recognised the skeleton as Death and he asked the skeleton if he had died. The Skeleton told the Fool that in a way, the Fool had died and that this is the only way to be reborn. The Fool felt enlightened and understands that all great transformations start by stripping everything and are built upon the bare foundations.
The Death Card has always been depicted in a dramatic manner in the movies and dramas. Actually, it is a card which suggests transformation more than anything else. It is a card of humility and advises the Querent that only after being brought low can he or she rise to greater heights. The Death card encourages changes and hint that the changes may be good to bring about a great transformation, leading to a better life. New things can only be reborn after death. Hence, do not take the Death card as its face value but look beyond the card and attempt to change for a better future!
