Tarot Death as Feelings of Your Present and Ex Partner

    Death as feelings ex

    When I first took a deck of the Tarot cards and began learning the pictures I was extremely scared of two cards. One of them was the Death. The picture itself, the colors, and the name of the card were so gloomy that the only thing I could associate this card with – was a real death. I was afraid of getting this card in spreads until I learned the actual meaning of this card. See below.

    The meaning of the Taro Arcanum Death in love spreads and readings – your relationship will undergo some global unexpected but yet predictable transformation that doesn’t depend upon you. Either your relationship came to a natural ending or, which is less likely, a new stage in your relationship will bring it to a new level only if both of you want that. The same meaning the Death has as for feelings.

    The love meaning of the Death in one sentence: unexpectedly yet predictably you undergo changes that you can’t influence in your relationship and that you don’t want, that’s why you suffer but you’re getting free of old problems and new opportunities may come into your life.

    If you want to learn exact answers to your questions about love and relationship in case you got the Death – follow my thoughts in this post.

    As for spreads for beginners, I recommend 1 card love spread. If you are interested to learn more and see the development of your relationship use 3 card spread. Keep in mind that your attitude is very important.

    For those who don’t have time for reading the whole article, I prepared a very brief summary of questions and answers according to Death love tarot meaning in one word or sentence.

    You may also take a look at the love meaning of the Fool, the Magician, the High Priestess, the Empress, the Emperor, the Hierophant, the Lovers, the Chariot, the Strength, the Hermit, the Wheel of Fortune, the Justice, the Hanged Man, the Death, the Temperance, the Devil.

    General Meaning of the Death in the Upright Position

    Death always means an ending of a stagnation period in your life or the end of some situation that has dragged on for a while. An important notice – it is a natural ending, not a forced one thus it is quite predictable. Still, it brings us pain and suffering. At the same time, when something ends it brings the beginning of something new.

    A boat sailing on the river means a new beginning. Also, the rising sun tells us that it is not so bad, and we should hope for the better.

    The horse in the picture is moving, it did not freeze on the spot. So the situation or question you ask about will have growth and development after experiencing transformation, usually through the pain.

    To confirm that there is no physical death in this card – look at a mystic rose on the flag that symbolizes life.

    That said the Death means transformation and global changes in life. These changes might happen all of a sudden but they would be natural and quite predictable. And it is not connected with physical death. A good example to illustrate this card is a woman who gave birth to a child – it is a global transformation in her life – she became a mom. Unexpectedly, yet predictable. Through pain. And a new life for her began after such a transformation.

    The general meaning of the Tarot Death in the everyday life is:

    • Unexpected yet predictable changes
    • The natural ending of the current situation
    • Changes that you can’t influence and that do not depend upon you
    • Getting free from something through pain and suffering
    • Solving old problems

    Upright Death Prediction in Questions about Love and Feelings

    Will I meet my love?

    Here I cover the meaning that is usually used for a one-card spread for singles with only one question.

    Unfortunately, the Death can’t give you a clear-cut answer to this question. I would recommend pulling out one more card and seeing whether it is positive or not. And here is why.

    On the one hand, the Death means that your current situation with love and loneliness will end and transform. And that might be a sign of a new relationship. At the same time, it will be a very natural change but painful. I may suggest that perhaps you already know who could be your partner. And to be with him in a relationship you have to overcome some unpleasant feelings (maybe his appearance is not so attractive as you would like to, or you don’t get on well with his relatives or something other that you can’t influence).

    As a result of the written above, most likely you’ll prefer to stay alone rather than to be with a partner who is near you.

    In brief in most cases, if the card you pulled out additionally is not positive, the Death means ‘no’.

    So, the meaning and interpretation of the upright Death as divination to question “Will I meet a new love” as “No, you will not meet”.

    Does he love me?  How much does he love me? 

    In one of my articles, I’ve already written that you should be in a relationship with the man when you are making a love spread to analyze your relationship with him.

    So the Death means that his feelings for you in your relationship have transformed, for sure. What kind of transformation his feelings have undergone? I am sure, you know the answer.

    In most cases, the Death means that he doesn’t love. His feelings for you faded and he couldn’t do anything with that. And it happened naturally and quite predictable.

    So, the meaning and interpretation of the upright Death as divination to question “Does he love me? How much does he love me?” as “No, he doesn’t love you.”

    Will he confess his love? 

    If you got the Death the prediction is ‘No’. Either something unexpected yet predictable happened or is happening in your relationship that made him change his mind to confess. It is not his or your fault. Just you both could not influence that.

    Or he will not confess because he doesn’t love you. This situation is painful for both of you. But remember the Death tells you that you’ll get rid of old unsolved problems and there will be room for new beginnings in your life.

    So, the meaning and interpretation of the upright Death as divination to question “Will he confess his love?” as “No, he won’t.”

    Is he a good match / partner for me? Is he the one? 

    The Death means that your partner is a person who is constantly undergoing changes in his life. What is more important is that this refers not only to everyday life situations, like changing jobs, moving to other places of residence, etc. Important is that his values, conceptions, and mindset also change. And today you think you have known him for ages, tomorrow he will be a perfect stranger for you whose ideas you don’t share.

    All these changes will be unexpected for you, bring pain, and in the end, the outcome of your relationship will be very predictable. Guess what?

    That’s why I always interpret the Death as ‘no’ for such questions.

    So, the meaning and interpretation of the upright Death as divination to question “Is he a good match / partner for me? Is he the one?” as “No, he is not unless you are ready for changes.”

    Will he make a marriage proposal?

    The Death is not a marriage card at all. Don’t wait for a marriage proposal. Here are my few reasons why. That might be because his beliefs have transformed and now he thinks that marriage is not important at all. Another reason he fell out of love.

    I know it is painful for you. Don’t be upset – remember the Death means solving all the old issues and that will create room for new beginnings.

    So, the meaning and interpretation of the upright Death as divination to question “Will he make a marriage proposal?” as “No, he will not.”

    Upright Death as Feelings of Your Ex

    Does my Ex love me?

    I am sure you already know the answer – No. The Death denotes that he got rid of any feelings for you. Not because he wanted that, just that happened naturally with time. Yes, that was painful for him. But now he is open to new beginnings.

    So, the meaning and interpretation of the upright Death as divination to the question “Does my Ex love me?” as “No, he doesn’t.”

    Does my Ex remember me? Does my Ex miss me?

    He most likely doesn’t think of you or doesn’t miss you as he naturally forgot you with time. He got freedom from thoughts about you.

    So, the meaning and interpretation of the upright Death as divination to question “Does my Ex remember me? Does my Ex miss me?” as “No, he doesn’t.”

    Will my Ex come back?  

    A difficult question to answer with the Death card. I would recommend pulling out one more card for clarification. Because two variants are possible. The prediction depends upon whether the card you pulled is positive or negative.

    Positive variant. Suddenly he might decide to start everything from scratch. Because your old situation found its resolution. So he might think of coming back. Of course, that will bring stress for both of you. And the success of this story will depend only on if you both are ready for such a global transformation in your relationships. So huge work and efforts are required here.

    A negative variant, unfortunately, is more common. His desire to come back faded naturally with time. He couldn’t influence this situation. It was not easy for him. But now he let you go as a partner. And now he is ready to start his new life with a clean sheet. But without you.

    So, the meaning and interpretation of the upright Death as divination to question “Will my Ex come back?” as “Two variants possible – yes and no.”

    Upright Death Meaning for Relationship Analysis

    The Death means an ending of a certain stage in your relationship, the transformation of your relationship, and the beginning of a new one. Only you know whether it was a good or a bad stage. And what kind of transformation in your relationship to wait for.

    This card predicts that you may break up, which will bring you pain. And you can’t influence that. But after that, you’ll understand that you got the freedom you needed so much. And with freedom new beginnings will happen.

    Another aspect of this card is that you’ll have to face some global changes in your relationship. And if you both face the challenge and will not be against this transformation, your relationship will get to a new level. Otherwise, there is a risk of breaking up.

    If you wonder what prediction among the written above is correct – follow your intuition or see the additional card – how positive it is.
