Few people relish the appearance of Death, but it is rarely a warning of physical death. This unlucky thirteenth card can represent calamity and endings, but mostly it signals fresh beginnings, for which something has to give way. The card signals the passage from one stage of life to another, which may involve sacrifice and pain, but there is no other way to renewal.
This card represents a creative revolution or transformation of life, probably involving the loss of friendly, family, or business connections, but only as the prelude to a fresh and rewarding phase of life. In physical health it can warn of a potential crisis if you pay no attention to warning signals, but the card is usually more concerned with spiritual health and the need for periodic renewal to avoid stagnation.
