Ok I'm not going to bullshit you here. Sometimes the death card actually means death. In all my 20 something years of reading cards I've never had this crop up at the time of an actual death either. But today is different...
Yesterday my husband lost somebody and then up pops this card. Not so much an omen, but a startling reflection. The thing with the 'death' card is that it heralds so much hope. Because whilst it can reflect the loss of so much, it also points us to the fact that from loss new beginnings can spring.
With each person that we lose, we are gifted the chance to consider what that person meant to us. To love them for all their good, and to take lessons from their life, apply it to our lives and continue their legacy. And if you are spiritual then death also represents a return home, to the true home, to a place where the aches and pains of body and mind are no longer felt. A place where the larks and jests of earth are relieved. A compassionate, loving place where we feel the light of source pumping through our metaphorical veins.
So yes, sometimes the death card means actual death. But there is no bleakness in that. Only hope and if you want to look for it, inspiration, love, inevitability and release. If you are grieving a death I hope this helps you. With love, Alice
The past has a horrible and tumultuous pull doesn't it? We try to escape and yet it pulls us swirling and insane back into it. Things we laid to rest many moons ago can raise their heads and capture our heart and before we know it we are existing 'five years ago and three thousand miles away' (thanks Elbow).
This card asks you to bring an awareness to this backwards thinking. There is no profit in it. It simply lowers us to a lesser time, a time before we learned and grew from the experience. And we all know nothing can be changed or altered as we survey those past troubles. Energy spent on those times is a waste and disconnects us from what we have become. Realign with who you are now. Who you have become. Your hopes and desires as they are in this moment. Count your blessings but know that your blessings stem from the hard times and so really those difficult times were blessings too. In their own weird way. Make peace with your pain and concentrate hard on what you have right now. Refuse to lose yourself to a lesser time.

If there is trouble in your world be assured you are going to come out stronger. Any little chaos is the universe's way of shaking you into a better place. Chaos and drama, in the end, can be healing. Through the space they leave as we shuffle them out the door we are left with fresh air in which we can manifest our highest selves. Be mindful about your troubles and determine not to wallow. Instead plough through and out the other side, brighter, more self aware, full of strength!

Do not allow the past to so consume you that you can't see what is offered to you in the present. Yes there may have been turbulence, chaos and emotional upset, and yes it is easily felt if you choose to revisit it. But the Key word here is choice. You choose to feel it. You could just as easily choose not to feel it, to focus on the present, to count your blessings and to properly embrace all that is good in your life. The chaos was a necessary part of crafting your present day. But it is not something you need to indulge. Let it be past. Turn around and face what is beautifully yours.
