Contrary to its dire appearance; the Death card is usually a card of empowerment. Rather than doom and gloom, think endings and transformation. When this card comes up, an area of concern for you is facing a “death” or ending, but this opens you up to new opportunities for growth in new directions that could not have happened otherwise.
When a caterpillar “dies” it transforms into a butterfly. This process involves some struggle, but it’s a challenge with a purpose. Without this fight to break free from the confines of the cocoon; the newly formed butterfly can’t strengthen its wings. Without the battle, the butterfly dies without ever taking flight.
Now is a time to look at ways you may need to accept a “death” so that you can find new purpose in your life. Find the courage to spread your wings and fly.
