Death Tarot Spread
This spread is for dealing with change and recognizing your initial reactions to it.
Shuffle the deck and lay out the cards per the diagram at right.
Card 1: This card is the change, the Death. This is the sun setting, the inevitable force that cannot be stopped or slowed.
Cards 2, 3 and 4: These cards represent things that have died, aspects of yourself that are gone or have been cut off. They can represent your innocence, ignorance, blind faith, control, something in its bloom. Name them.
Card 5: This card represents the person you were before, that which you no longer are.
Card 6: This card represents you just after the change, ways to mourn, sorrow to acknowledge before you can go on. Also acceptance or ways toward acceptance.
