13-Death – Reversed Golden Deck

Your Chosen Card – Death Reversed Golden Deck

When reversed, the Death card suggests that you may be avoiding necessary change and transition. Clinging to the past is not productive in the long run. Aspects of your life that are stagnant or outworn must be discarded so that new growth can take place. Are you creating conditions inimical to the sprouting of new seeds in your life? If so, now is the time to summon the courage to face the unknown.

Keywords Reversed: Refusal to let go, stagnation, decay, procrastination, failing to sprout, clinging unproductively to the past, resisting necessary change, fear of the unknown.

Key XIII: Death
Myths/Archetypes: Osiris. Dionysus. The Angel of Death. The Eleusinian Mysteries. The phoenix myth. Transfiguration. Easter. The Resurrection.
Dates of Scorpio: 23 October–22 November (tropical); 16 November–15 December (sidereal)
Astrology: Scorpio, the Scorpion (a Water sign ruled by Mars and Pluto)

When Death is reversed you can pretty much take it that life is going well but that’s when life takes us by surprise.  If Death is unclear it may help to choose a card from the Major Arcana to provide more insight into what it is Death is trying to tell you.  If you had a particular issue in  mind, or want to seek clarification on something else, you can also choose again to get more guidance.

Book Details
Complete Book of Tarot: Early in the fifteenth century, artisans in northern Italy added a fifth trump suit to the four standard suits of the Mamluk-inspired cards, creating a deck to play the game of trionfi, or triumphs, similar to the modern game of bridge. The word tarot may derive from the Italian name for the deck, tarrochi. Renaissance artists drew their inspiration for the allegorical images on the trump cards from the Bible as well as from ancient Greek and Roman manuscripts, which were all the rage in Renaissance Italy. Each trump in the card sequence outranks the one that comes before it.
