The original painting of tarot card Death for Atu 13 of Tarot of the Morning Star

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 delve into the concept that our perception of ourselves is merely a facade for a deeper entity residing within us. Our transient physical form and logical mind act as a host for our inner essence to interact with the tangible world.

This particular artwork is an original depiction of the tarot card Death, representing the concept that there is no true death, only a transition into another realm or a transformation.

It is important to understand that the card is not solely about death but also about rebirth and renewal, making the term “Transformation” a more suitable title for Atu 13.

The card signifies a ruthless and spontaneous reaction to events, with a lack of personal accountability and a strong desire for power at any cost. It symbolizes the ego replacing the voices of ancestors and gods, driven by a relentless pursuit of ambition.

However, it is crucial to note that Death also symbolizes the removal of sickness and has a connection to healing. Its ruling planet, Mars, evokes images of surgical procedures.

Additionally, Scorpio’s influence can be seen in the interpretations of the Five, Six, and Seven of Water tarot cards, which represent the archetypal voice of Scorpio in different aspects of life and emotion.

When faced with challenges in the interpretation of these cards, referring back to the Death card can provide clarity and resolution.

In the Four Worlds arrangement of the QBL known as the Jacob’s Ladder arrangement, the path of Tarot Death aligns with that of Tarot Fool, creating a connection between these two cards. Further information about this concept can be found in the explanations of QBL and Qlippoth An Alternative View.
