Literary Tarot: Death
“In order to rise from its own ashes, a Phoenix first must burn.” - Octavia E. Butler
Death - Transition, release, transformation, endings and new beginnings, change, letting go, metamorphosis, detachment
Death is the ultimate reminder that life is not linear; everything has a season, a cycle, a time. Our darkest, most difficult days will eventually give way to hope, to beauty, to inspiration, to joy. Arduous as it may be, we are called to engage in the process of shedding what no longer serves, pruning away what is no longer life-giving. Death begins the transformation of pain, stagnancy, and limitation into healing, growth, and freedom. Forged through its fires, we emerge from the death process stronger and wiser, luminous in our rebirth.
