Death XIII http://www.normacowie.com/death13.jpg align=left>
The White Horse brings the skeleton, dressed in his iron, forward beyond the battlefield. The king lies dead, his materialistic crown lying on the ground beside him. The priest acknowledges him while a woman and child bow down recognizing his journey. In front of him is the river of life, and beyond the river on top of the cliffs are the two towers with the sun in the distance. He is on his journey.
He carries the white rose on his flag representing his purity of desire for this journey. He is being transformed into a whole new vibration. He is leaving the known and stepping into the unknown. Life so often brings us to these ´death´ points of our life. And as we grow beyond them the life we knew before is no more. We are transported into our inner depths.
This change is not like the Wheel of Fortune, the law of change when our life is changing. This is the end result of all the previous three symbols, Wheel of Fortune, Justice and Hanged Man. In each step of the way the learning has been relentless. You come to understand that which you need to understand, or you do not. If you do not you will repeat the lessons for sure. When you come to understand you are transported and this is what the Death symbol signifies the transformation from the old to the new.
Of course we all know that Death means the end, signifying the end of the physical life, but here it signifies the end of the old pattern, the old thinking, the old way of responding. This is the symbol that shows we do grow, we do progress in our life. We can be thankful for this symbol representing that we do come to understand life in a new way. We do progress and we do move forward, as the saying goes ´onward and upward´.
