Unless your question is ‘Will my grandma going to die tomorrow?’ and questions to that effect: about immediate death of your concerned ones, there is not much to be sacred if you pull out the Death card. It is most likely that even this message is repeated over hundred times, you will still find the Death card a little scary. For one thing, it is number 13 of the major arcana, people think 13 is an inauspicious number. In numerology, 13 is not even a special number (the special ones are 11, 22 and 33), it is often reduced to 4 (1+3 = 4) which signifies structure, order and discipline.
Having said that, the Death card is still scary, isn’t it? This I can understand. The card is calling for transformation. A major change is about to take place. We don’t like changes especially if it is something big, do we? Yet change is unavoidable now, and the best way to handle is to embrace it. The Death card often appears when you are facing significant life events like divorce, leaving home, relocating, career moves etc. The situation will involve an end of an era and the beginning of a new one.
This is a card of ending and new beginning. It is time to let go of your old unproductive ways and welcome a new way of life.
