Now, I’m as happy-go-lucky-Pollyanna-spinning-chick as you’re going to find. But really…I consider it disservice to over-spin. We field whatever we get and the clearer we can see it, the better we can field. You know? Best to skip the denial part, as it tends to blow up.
Today, we’ve got Transformation, better known as Death or Child of the Great Transformers, associated with Scorpio. This is lovely imagery, but sure not my favorite interpretation of Death. The Psychic Tarot Oracle is so…soft. Death as a pretty young woman with butterfly wings? Blink. Okay. I suppose Death could come in any outfit. But really? At least she looks a little startled, I guess.
Death heralds irrevocable change, so best not get clingy over old news. It’s history! Like any Scorpio-flavored shift, changes are powerful and deep. Letting go of the old, accepting what is, and allowing transformation as peacefully as you can are your best bests for coping.
I just think it’s very important to acknowledge, this card’s energy is generally HARD. Not bad, but hard. Big changes are hard, and often painful. It IS transformative, life-changing, but that kind of growth does not come without cost. Finding a new paradigm means shaking free the old one, however attached to it we may have been.
When you see the Death card, know you’re talking about a deep, fundamental change in worldview. Know that there is always a reason—in the larger picture, whatever you’ll have to let go now is dead, and holding on to it will start to stink up the place. We can try to avoid or ignore, but that doesn’t reanimate corpses.
Transformation says there’s been a fundamental shift. Processing the shift both hurts and liberates simultaneously.
Have you been liberated by a Transformation recently?
