American Author Leonard Sweet equates life with change, death with stagnation. The death card in Tarot is very much the same. Life, death, and change all ride together. When we change, the “old you” dies, but, at the same time the “new you” comes into the world. If you hold on to the old too much, it is essentially creating a zombie-monster, a reanimated corpse. Keep your mind too much in the future, and you pull your energy from here and now and become a ghost. Befriend the grim reaper of change and you become a pheonix, rising from the ashes of the past fully engaged in the magic of life, of the right-now.
