My card of the day for 5th March is Death which I have drawn from the Thoth Tarot.
Death always scares people but, in my experience, it very rarely relates to physical death; it is much more about the ending of one period and the beginning of a new era. Death has many faces and, in relation to several of the cards I have published recently, I believe that this card could be suggesting that you may have finally reached a time when you feel able to let go.
This card can indicate periods that are painful, but it can also suggest that it could be up to you how painful your decisions could be. It can be enormously difficult to let go of people, jobs or other things in your life where you may feel that it is easier to go along with being unhappy because you also feel relatively secure. This card could also be indicating that old attachments are simply waiting to be extinguished; if only you could bear to let them go.
Much of what I have been saying over the last few weeks has been about change, about taking control of your life and about finding the inner strength to do what is best for you. I have also spoken about being true to yourself but also being truthful with yourself.
Death is a card from the Major Arcana of the tarot, which can mean that its influence can be deeper than those from the Minor Arcana; such as the 9 of Discs or the 5 of Swords. The thing about the majors is that they have a knack of suggesting things that could be meant to happen; the key is to recognise this so that you may be able to take control and save yourself the further pain of enduring changes that you aren’t ready for.
Today could be a day to recognise that it may be time to let go of attachments that are not good for you; but to do so in a timely manner that allows you to be in control of your own destiny, no matter how scary this may seem.
