Death Tarot

Don’t be intimidated by this card! The Death card is one of the most misunderstood cards in the Tarot. It does not represent physical death; rather it is about transformation of the self and letting go of the things that no longer serve us. What have you been holding that you need to let go? Ending this chapter of your life could pave the way for something much bigger down the road. So this week, you’re encouraged to move on with whatever it is that’s holding you back from the future you deserve.

3 of Wands Tarot
