Sometimes, you just know you’ve tapped into something deeper and more mysterious than you can imagine. (It’s not coincidence, it’s synchronicity.) Of all the 78 cards in my deck, shuffled and shuffled again, which one did I pull today?
When you get this card in a reading . . .
Something in your life is dying, while something else is nearing its time to be born. Take the time that you need to recognize that this is a natural process, a part of the great cycle of all life. Grieve if you need to for that which is ending, whether it is a cherished dream, a relationship or a belief system. Don’t rush the process or deny all your turbulent feelings. Whether a literal death or the ending of a chapter in your life, death isn’t pretty and it can hurt. It’s painful. Whatever dies, is gone, and it will never return again in the same form.
But just as the Dark Moon gives way to the New, and Winter gives way to Spring, Rebirth will surely follow Death. Releasing that which no longer serves your best interests clears the space for new beginnings and an upsurge of vitality. When you are ready to let go of grief, you will find yourself emptied out and clean, and ready for the next stage of your journey.
