If a force acts in the same direction as the object’s motion, then the force speeds the object up. Either way, a force will change the velocity of an object. And if the velocity of the object is changed, then the momentum of the object is changed.

Death Tarot Card Key Meanings:

General meaning and interpretation (Upright)

Although it is the Tarot card that many people fear, Death generally does not mean physical Death. As a rule, you should never predict deaths (or the outcomes of illnesses or pregnancies) as a Tarot reader. It is unethical and irresponsible. Aside from the ethics, The Death Tarot Card usually signifies spiritual transformation and a time of change and new beginnings, not actual Death! The transformation or change that Death can bring can be difficult, unexpected, sudden, or even traumatic, but it will bring a new lease of life with it. It’s best to try not to resist the Death Tarot card’s change, as fighting it will only make the transition difficult and painful. Instead, try to embrace the change as a fresh start. This Major Arcana card can also signify the need to let go of old issues or beliefs when it appears in a Tarot spread. It may tell you that you need to draw a line under the past to move forward in a positive direction. A Death card transformation can be a bit of a shock to the system, but ultimately it’s a positive one.

Love & Relationships (Upright)

If you are in a relationship, Death in a love tarot context can signify that you or your partner may be holding onto a relationship that’s not working or clinging to old patterns that stop your relationship from moving forward. Death signifies that things will change whether you want them to or not. You can either resist the change or embrace it. If your relationship is not going well, the Death Tarot card can indicate that it may be time to walk away, divorce, or suggest that you and your partner need to make significant changes and let go of old patterns or issues to make it work. The old issues the Death card seeks to change can be deep-seated and painful. If that’s the case, you may want to consider relationship counseling. The outcome really depends on whether or not you and your partner are both willing to embrace the transformation and really want the relationship to survive because you love each other rather than because you fear not being in the relationship. The changes the Death Tarot card can bring to a relationship can be positive, too, it can indicate an unexpected change like a surprise engagement or a pregnancy, and you may find these changes overwhelming initially. If you are single, the Death card can indicate that you will soon be casting off the old beliefs, issues, or behaviors that are no longer useful to you. Embrace this transformation as it will bring new love into your life.   

Money & Career (Upright)

Death in a career context is a warning not to get too dependent on anything that is not working for you. The only thing in life that is guaranteed is that things change. If you are unhappy in your current job, start looking for a new one, or the universe may force you to find a new job. If you are starting your own business but have been reluctant to quit your old job because of the security it offers, Death may be indicating that it’s time to consider jumping in with both feet. Money can get tight when the Death card appears in an economic context; you may have a sudden drop in income or loss of money. If that happens, don’t let it get you down, this change will lead you somewhere positive, and you will learn from it. If you experience financial hardship, don’t stick your head in the sand. Make practical adjustments and keep moving forward positively. If you are tight on money, consider getting back to basics and swapping big nights out for cozy nights with close friends. And remember, any financial issues will be fine in the long run if you make the changes necessary.

Health (Upright)

Don’t panic if you see the Death card in the health reading. Again the Death card only indicates physical Death in sporadic cases and only in certain combinations! If you feel like your health is never going to improve, Death can signify that a change is coming. However, handling this change will go a long way to determining the outcome. If your health has been bad and illness has left you feeling pessimistic, try to embrace the coming changes by changing your attitude. Try to find something positive each day, even if you feel ill. You may also try a new approach that you haven’t tried before, like a different diet, holistic therapy, or energy healing. Know that your current state is temporary. It will change. 

Spirituality (Upright)

Physical Death is a form of transformation when our spirits leave the physical body behind and transform into the spiritual beings we all are inherently. The Death card represents spiritual transformation. A spiritual Tarot reading indicates a time when you can deeply connect to your higher self and discover a depth of spirituality that you may not have even known you possessed. This spiritual transformation may be brought about by grief or loss or heartbreak that you have experienced. It can represent a difficult transition from an old situation to a new beginning. Try to embrace the change even if it is difficult. It’s leading you to your higher path. 

If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” “Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.” “Change is painful, but nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong.” “Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.”
