Tarot Death, Sun Scorpio, illustrates the cycle of life that has little regard for individuality and is associated with the astrological sign of Scorpio.

There is no death, only change.  We do not die, we move into another realm. There is no death, only transformation.  There are no ends only points on the circumference of a circle. These remarks tie into the concept that, what we think of as ourselves, is in fact a host for another entity incubating within us.

A more appropriate word for Atu 13 is Transformation because the card is as much about Birth as it is Death.

Ruthless and spontaneous reaction to incidents. No sense of personal accountability.  Desire for power by any means. A rise of the ego replacing the voices of ancestors and gods by a ruthless pursuit of ambition.

We should bear in mind that Death removes that which is sick. The card therefore has a correspondence to healing. Its ruling planet Mars brings to mind the image of surgery.

Scorpio is the archetypal voice behind the Five, Six and Seven of Water.

When interpretation of these three cards fails you allow your consciousness to fall back upon this card Death for elucidation and resolution of the question.
