On the eleventh day of December, my solstice advent gave to me… Death.
Death is the most misunderstood card in the whole pack. Too many people take this card literally when it appears. Thanks, Hollywood! Death does represent an ending. Whether it is life or a situation, that all depends on what cards appear around it. Death is change. It can be a challenging transformation that we sometimes don’t want to accept into our reality. When this card appears, we know something big is coming, and it helps us prepare for the transition. This is one reason it appears in the middle of the fool’s journey. Death isn’t an end, but a shift from one state of being to another. It’s the ability that helps us grow as humans and learn.
I love that Death has appeared midway through decorating the tree, just like the major arcana. Change is happening in this household today. It’s exciting, and we’re ready for this journey. I would be more specific, but it’s not my journey to tell. If you follow me on facebooklandia, you’ll know what is going on.
What change is happening in your world this winter? What lessons have you learned this year? Drop me a line; I’d love to know.
