Does the death card in Tarot readings really mean someone will die?
Usually, from what I've read, the Death card simply means that the person who is having the reading done will have a major life change.
I interpret Death as a card of transformation -- the death of old ways of doing something or the end of an era. I always try to put a positive spin on it in readings. Yes, it's a profound change, but one that opens the door to a new, much-needed beginning.
Both seicheprey and Kelly Renee are correct. The death card makes a wonderfully dramatic impact in Hollywood movies to thrill and spook, however it is merely a card of major transformation. It denotes a death to a way of life or thinking that is no longer valid for that person. Like Kelly Renee, I see this as a positive thing. It frees the person to grow and find a path that is more suitable to the amazing person they are becoming.
Death card symbolizes the end of one cycle and beginning of another. It's not necessary transformation. It's like seasons.
i thought the death card was a card for new beginnings.. I do remember shitting myself when it came up in my first reading though.. but the woman told me its not that im going to die.. good enough! lol
In all my reading and research, the death card is translated as the termination of one cycle in order to begin another. This could be a job, a relationship, a way of life, etc., depending on the surrounding cards.
No - this is the most widely misunderstood and misinterpreted card in a Tarot deck. I've been a Tarot reader for 20 years and have actually come to love and embrace this card for it's beauty and it true meaning.
The death card in Tarot is a card of transformation and great change which often comes through a "death" or "ending". It comes up around things like job loss, divorce etc. and means a period of rebirth after a period of struggle.
When a caterpillar becomes a butterfly it must struggle to free itself from the coccoon. This struggle is difficult but it is what builds the strength in the newly formed butterfly's wings - without that "death" and that struggle - the butterfly would die because it couldn't fly.
So when the death card comes up I tell my clients - "you're growing wings"
It tells you to embrace a new cycle of your life and to let go of that which no longer serves you so that you can fully embrace new opportunities.
What everyone else says. Transformation, ending of a cycle, change etc... All good things usually.
no! i have been told that it just means something serious...maybe bad will happen, but does not mean literally there will be a death...don't worry! :0
This is probably the first card that pops into most querrent and new readers minds. The word Death carries an awful lot of linguistic baggage, and many assume that the death card is some sort of bad omen or sign of bad luck. For most experienced... read more
I used to think this but according to the lady I consult and have consulted for many years it often means the end of something, not someone dying, it could be the end of a relationship or the end of someone working in a certain job or living in a certain home, it can be a wonderful thing, not really having to be bad news. This lady does email and phone sessions and she is truly good you can find her at webclairvoyant.com

I collect Tarot Cards and Divination tools - I have quite a few now (over 40 different decks I believe). However, I find it difficult to choose a favourite deck... I have a blog where I do a sort of daily 'Tarotscope' and I'm using the Wisdom of Avalon Oracle cards this week. I love the...
