I am going to catch up with the Black Crow Tarot Course.
"What?" I hear you asking, "You haven't done one of those in...over six months."
Well, to be fair I haven't posted anything in a month, and I haven't posted anything substantial in...substantially longer than that. I'm not going to apologize for it; that's just how things go sometimes. Life has gotten in the way.
Now though, I want to write something. More specifically I want to work on the tarot posts because they really do help me familiarize myself with the cards. Now onward with the next card: death!
As Aine says in her post, the Death card rarely represents an actual physical death. Usually, it signifies the end of a cycle or experience. It tells you that it is time to move on, to let something go, even if you really don't want to.
The best example I can think of at the moment is the end of a relationship. This topic's been on my mind a lot recently, which makes sense I suppose. As a sophomore in high school that kind of thing is really common. However, no matter how much a break up hurts, it happened because it was meant to. The relationship ran its course and now its time for it to end. Hopefully you got some good memories out of it, and maybe something else. I got the idea for my NaNoWriMo novel because of my first breakup, so you never know. Something good might come out of the pain and drama.
Did I just answer the exercise question? Somewhat. Did I answer it completely? No. I couldn't completely analyze one breakup in 50,000 words, there's no way I could analyze all of death in a paragraph.
I'm not going to add all of the pictures I normally do, because it's a pain to add pictures to posts on Webs sites, and also because I feel like they're not actually helpful for anyone anyway. I will however share this picture with you.
This is the Transfiguration card from the Wizard's Tarot, the newest deck I've gotten. It's this deck's version of the Death card. As you can see, it emphasizes the rebirth aspect of the card.
Ok, I'm going to go work on the next few posts. You know the drill. Email me at [email protected] if you have suggestions or questions or anything.
