Hi all. Hope you are well.

I am still new to tarot and draw a card each day. Today I drew the Death card for the first time and wondered if it's anything to worry about? I am probably over thinking but thought I would see what you all thought. I use the Gilded tarot deck if that makes any difference.

What was the reading about? That will help you understand the card’s role.

In tarot, the Death card means there will be a transformation taking place. It may be a tumultuous period for you, but you will be just fine. I’ve gotten Tower and Death together and lived to tell the tale. :)

I’m newer to tarot too. It’s been a strange path for me, but I’ve loved it and hope it helps you too.

If I were drawing Death as a personal card of the day, I’d keep my eyes open.. not for a tragic event or unexpected change, but more for an opportunity or reason in my life to put an end to something, or put something to rest. Death isnt always something that happens, but possibly it’s time to MAKE something happen. What is it in your life that you need to wrap up and move on from?  This is of course just one take on our friend Death. He is change, and although he brings many our way, he also urges us to create our own change,open our own doors  Death can be very forceful, and can also be subtle. But it is ALWAYS final. Whether it comes TO you, or you initiate it, move on.

The way I understand it, you’re using the same tarot deck every day for this, and you’ve got two reasons for doing the reading? The major reason being that you want to learn the tarot more, and the minor reason to learn about the day? And if that’s the case, then whatever card you pull would be as a response to that.

So, possibly it’s mainly a situation where your tarot deck is a teaching mode, and on that day your mind mode was maybe receptive to learn more about that card in particular?

And because the major arcana is oftentimes about major energies going on, rather than the details of mundane life, then possibly the card speaks about the underlying period of time that that day is part of, and that day being overall influenced by a transformative energy right now?

If so, then that ”transformative theme of spirit” in your life right now, could or might possibly be better tapped into and felt when you go deep within, rather than to look for correlations or an event in the outer world and workings.

That’s just one possible way to look at it, of many. What you yourself feel it relates to is of course significant, most of the time. And there could be so many interpretations.

Far as Death meaning a symbolic transformation, rather than a physical death, I’d just say that that depends on the deck. It’s happened once that I pulled that card and it truly was referring to death, but it was a deck that has proven itself time and again to be sharply predictive of near-by actual events.

And so, I’d say ask your deck various shapes and forms of questions and find out where it shines. That’s what I do with every new deck, I get to know it better so I can purpose it where it belongs, and it’s vastly helpful... Basically, I let the deck tell me who it is, rather than define its identity beforehand, by what I’d like it to be...

Find out whether it’s a deck for general readings, a deck for deep spiritual answers, an everyday lighter deck, a predictive deck, a deck that doesn’t speak with you at all, a deck for family matters, for relationships, a deck that gives the blunt negatives of a situation or one that delivers even the harsher things in a feelgood way. You’ll know by the way it reads, or the way it refuses to read. And once you know, you’ll know better too in what context you should interpret the cards you pull.

That’s how I know that I’ve got one deck where Death is Death, and that in all other decks I’ve got so far, I wouldn’t expect them to refer to the actual physical event, at all.

So, in conclusion, and also based on your reading, I personally wouldn’t be too worried about it.
