I have an app on my Kindle that sends me a Tarot card every day from the Rider – Waite deck. On my birthday and today I got the “Death” card. Do those of you who do not know Tarot meanings the Death card can represent the end o something in you life not necessarily you or someone you know is going to cross into the Summerlands.
Just after my birthday I found out where I worked might be moving or closing next year. Well that small part o my life changing has happened by the time my doctor release me to go back to work it will not be there. Long story short it is in a strip mall foreclosed on about 5 years ago finally decided to kick out the remaining businesses by midnight December 31, 2018. Getting this card on my 60th birthday which is also Beltane or Samhain depending where you live was a little shocking as I’ve had this Tarot deck app for a couple of years and it has never came up before. But keep reading it was fire telling me of things to come like not having a job I need to leave home for.
So when I got the Death card this morning I wondered what door is going I close this time? Than it dawned on me I already have a couple of new projects I am working to help this website. One will help new novices with a small scholarship if they need it to take the course. While th other I am working on with Lady Abyss to help fund operating cost for this site and WOTC we hope. Sorry, but no spoilers yet on what these projects are. I also can take the time to write the book I outlined years ago that will be similar to taking the online novice course for those that want to work strictly as a Solitary Witch.
So yes while something in my life “dies” it is so something new can blossom in my life. The “Death” card does not always mean a person is going to cross into the Summerland most of the time it means a major change in a person life.
I do plan on doing a full physical reading with my two favorite Tarot deck later today to gain more insight to what is changing in my life. I am looking forward to whatever it may be.

Astrological Correspondence: Mars
The Tower card first and foremost illustrates that neither physical nor emotional structures that we build are permanent and stable; instead, they can be destroyed suddenly, thereby initiating change that we have tried to avoid. The sudden change resembled by the crumbling tower reminds us of letting go of outgrown beliefs and values, of releasing an illusion, an unhealthy relationship, an old way of life. The sudden change frees us to face the unknown, frees us to move forward instead of stagnate, frees us from social conventions and enlightens us on our path so that we reach a new level of understanding about our purpose in life. Not embracing the inevitable change brings out the negative elements that the Tower also depicts: being struck down by one’s own doing, by vanity and the inability to change so that one remains stagnant.

Astrological Correspondence: Pisces
The Moon in all its phases represents the world of dreams, illusions, and the subconscious. Traditionally the symbol of the feminine, the card’s meaning encompasses the maternal, the Great Mother, womanhood, and cycles. The Moon is an ambivalent card, and its imagery signifies the difficulty to see things clearly: simultaneously inspiring and lacking courage, enchanting and bewildering, deceptive and receptive – all sides of the same coin. Signaling fluctuating moods and uncertainty we must pay attention to our dreams, confront our subconscious and deal with the issues that come to the surface in order to progress to a higher level of awareness. Being able to put our imagination and creative talents to good use is an added bonus. Negative qualities such as ambiguity, confusion, hidden fears, and deception can be causes for failure.
