Death Tarot Card Meaning Upright

This death will not be a literal death, but a dying of something in order to make space for something new that is coming into your life. There is going to be big changes, as the ending can be drastic. But the new will be even better. Think of a phoenix, they rise even better than they were before. The fear that is felt from the ending is normal, but it shouldn’t be preventing what’s coming. 

Let go of the past and look towards the future.
These endings are usually quick to show up, without warning. You may not think that you are ready for these changes, but you truly are ready. You are strong enough to overcome challenges that are put in your path.
It may be scary and painful, but you will be able to learn from this experience and grow. Be open to new opportunities and you may find yourself happier in this new phase.
