As our fool continues his journey through the tarot, he eventually crosses paths with Death.

The Death card has long been one of the most misunderstood cards in the entire deck, as it rarely speaks to a physical death of the body. Instead, it symbolizes transformation, change, and rebirth of self. When this card appears on your table, it can speak to the end of a phase or situation and the beginning of something new. This transformation can be internal, such as a personal growth or mindset shift, or external, bringing to light changes in relationships, careers, or lifestyles.

This archetype can also encourage you to release old patterns, habits, or situations that no longer serve you. It is a full moon. It's a call to let go of the past to make way for a more aligned future. Death is a natural part of the life cycle, and this card represents the cyclical nature of existence. It reminds us that change is inevitable and necessary for growth. Embracing change and turning with the wheel is an important part of this existence, and this card reminds us of this. When you meet this archetype of the major arcana, take a look around and see where you are ready to shed and transform. Pull a few more cards for clarification if you need divine assistance.

Reversed, this archetype can speak to a resistance to a needed change or a reluctance. When he appears this way, spend some time considering where you are unwilling or unmotivated to change and lean into allowing self-transformation.
