The Death Tarot Card

Though often feared, Death signifies transformation, endings that make way for new beginnings, and cycles of completion. It reminds us that nothing is permanent, and change is essential for growth. Death can also represent letting go of the past, fear of change, or a significant ending that opens the door to new possibilities.

The Death Tarot Card Description

The card shows The Death riding into the card from the left, wearing a black armor. The Death holds in his left hand a black banner where upon is a white heraldic rose. The visor on his helmet is open and he looks down on the people below. As he moves forward, the people fall dead beneath him, not taking race or class into account.

Primary Meaning

Transformation is the big theme of this card. The card, sometimes called the Tarot Card of Death, may indicate a physical death, but seldom of the Questioner, rather someone around him. The card more often marks the end of a cycle in an abrupt way and may be a blessing in disguise.

Secondary Meaning

Refusal to accept changes or a sign of stagnation. Could also mean that the changes are not as drastic in regards to the primary meaning.

Further Reading

There are e-books or guides that offer the beginner some guidance.But no matter what is promised, you should always remember that true knowledge of the Tarot Cards comes with time.

Learning to read the Tarot Cards takes time, a lot of time and the virtue of patience is of high value during that time. Just this fact automatically filters out the ones that are not ready.
