Rotating the Meaning of Death
Posted August 24, 2012on:
As I shuffle the navy, starry-backed tarot cards this morning, I ask, “Help me focus my energy. How should I look at today?” I get the “DEATH” card.
Oh, excellent. It resonates for some reason. Even though the image of a sickle-carrying, armor-wearing skeleton riding over a fallen king gives me the willies.
After examining the card more closely, I see that beyond the terrible event, the sun is rising on the horizon.
An end to a chapter.
I mediate and ask for guidance. This is what bubbles up:
Death to whining.
… to anger.
… to holding standards, judgment.
… to unfinished projects.
… to beliefs that hold me back.
… to relationships that don’t work.
… to wasting time.
… to un-forgiveness.
I had woken up foggy after anxiety-ridden dreams about my parents. The Death card, the out-with-the-old-and-broken energy, cleanses and liberates. Very Plutonian and Scorpion, for those who are astrologically inclined.
It might be interesting to create your own Death List. See what comes to you.
