Today’s Tarot: Your Day of Great Change

Our Tarot card for today, Death, comes from the Manga Tarot, published by Lo Scarabeo.

When the Death card crosses our path, it is often met with shock and surprise, due to its name. But Death is one of the most misunderstood cards in the deck. Death is not about physical death, but is really about the processes of change we experience in this thing we call Life. A better name for this card, perhaps, is Transition. Transitions are endings and completions, which set the stage for new beginnings.

I love this image, which is a departure from the traditional imagery associated with this card: Here, a young woman walks with her spirit guide, hand in hand, as the guide points to the Light. Even though their backs are to us, I always get the feeling that the young woman is not afraid. There’s a message in that: Not all change has to be met with fear, although it is understandable when you consider that there is the unknown element or factor that accompanies all forms of change. I see this as meaning it’s not about the change process itself, but what lies on the Other Side of that process–for we don’t know.

I want to leave you with this thought: Consider the changes and transitions you have experienced. How have those outer experiences opened the door to your inner transformation? What changes will you make for yourself and your life as a result of that transformation?

Your partner in change being an inside-out process,
James
