Death, remember the past but look to the future.

Monday's card was drawn from the Motherpeace deck.

Sometimes the cards just amaze me. Imagine my surprise when I drew the Death card on tonight, Samhian with tomorrow being the day of the dead. In our society death is thought of as a negative thing and an end point. But in tarot Death is not an ending but a beginning. In the motherpeace image there is a snake shedding it's skin. It is going through a transformation, part of it is dying but it's dead skin is being replaced by new life. This constantly happens in our lives, every time something ends it is replaced by something new.

Death is here today to remind us of this. I believe Death has also shown up today to remind us to remember those that have crossed over. Spend today The Day of The Dead remembering your loved ones, especially those that have past in the last year. But when today is over they will return to the land of the dead and you must remain with the living. Rejoice in their memory but do not linger in the past. The wheel is always turning and you must move on with your life.
