Death! The cycle continues . . .

I could definitely feel a change when I woke up this morning.  I couldn’t quite isolate its nature, but it felt energetic.  So I decided to draw a card from my favorite oracle deck, The Halloween Oracle.  I was not surprised that I drew the death card, but it’s still very telling.

Death in this deck can be read the same way XIII – Death in the Rider Waite is usually read: the end of one thing and the beginning of another.  The subtext on the card above tells us the key concept: the eternal cycle begins here.  It also ends here.  The esoteric understanding of Death is that it’s a gateway, a door between one condition and the next in an eternal spiral of meaning and form.

So I think I felt that change last night and it’s causing me to be a bit introspective about the things in my life that are moving forward and also falling away.
