Death Tarot Card Description

The black Death rides through the night on a white horse of purity and renewal. His countenance is none but a skull but he commands the reverence of the Cardinals and Priests that kneel before him. They stand with the dead who are waiting for judgement to call. They quake in their stance and make offerings to the Death in faith that they will, this time, be spared.

The Death rides with a black flag high above his horse with a white flower symbol upon it that promises renewal. The sun in the background shines over two towers and across a lush and vibrant greenery.

Upright Card Meaning

Do not be frightened by the plodding march of the card of Death. The skull-headed soldier does not necessarily represent literal death, but can herald any kind of drastic change in your life. It is time for old habits that do not serve you to die. It is time to let your old beliefs that are holding you back wither away. Sometimes, what is comforting is not actually beneficial. Letting go of old things is necessary to achieve metamorphosis.
You are coming to the end of a cycle in your life and there is great change ahead. Change is good, dear one. Many animals go through drastic metamorphoses before they reach maturity, such as frogs and butterflies. Why shouldn’t we?
That does not mean change is easy. There is a reason one of the more frightening cards is representing change. You may be consumed with fear of change or even fear of death right now, all that is normal. However, don’t let your fear stop you from your transformation.

Death Reversed Tarot Card Meanings

Without the old things dying, new things cannot be born. Every plant knows this, so should you. However, Death reversed is pointing to elements of stagnation in your life. Perhaps you are holding on to old habits and things because you are afraid to find out who you are without them. Perhaps you are aware that change must be made, but do not know where to begin.
The old things that you are holding onto are weighing you down. You may be feeling lethargic, unable to do what needs to be done. It is time to let go of that weight before it crushes you. Holding on to things beyond their lifecycle will not prevent them from dying but will only increase the stench of decay.
Let go of your fear, of your old habits that no longer serve you, and your fixed beliefs. Allow yourself to become free and then you can achieve the transformative metamorphosis that the card of Death promises when it is right side up.
