The death card is always a good energy in any position because it means you’re shedding old skin and growing.
In the ‘death’ energy you may feel a kind of resistance as emotions come up to be released.
Here is where passion can really be stirred up because we’re now feeling things die off that we were so attached to/ hopeful for before. We feel the ache of separation as nature cuts these cords for us. But also the revitalization of new energy coming in, new people, new synchronicities.
There is such a beauty in the death card because it symbolizes us liberating ourselves not by fighting but by surrendering and opening. We trust nature to take us.
It takes us into its energy of deep transformation, which is why people who give themselves fully to this energy are often the most alive and fully self expressed individuals because the ‘self’ they experience is more like a costume being changed when they feel it’s time, therefore they are unattached to any identity, often open to flow with life force, sexual energy and inspiration.
The Death card corresponds to Scorpio in the zodiac.
Note: In tarot we never read the death card as physical death unless the client asks specifically about a loved one who is in the process of dying.
