Yes, it's been quite some time since I've posted a FOUND TAROT card here. I do have a few in mind (and on my computer) but none have really grabbed me. Then tonight I was thinking of the photo below for some reason and it hit me "Death, it's the Death card!" (I've already posted a tentative Death card here - a tree stump - but I like this photo below much more.) Very untraditional design, true. But it says it for me. Especially that aspect of the Death card that is about transition. And even if one notes the bit of green growing in the distance, that this card is about clearing away the old so that the new can grow.

I'm struck that I've also chosen a door image for The Empress. But this makes perfect sense to me. She's our doorway into this material life and Death is the doorway out. That is, both III and XIII, in my understanding, can reference liminal states. The difference between them being the direction in which the energy in each is going.

If you are interested, there are several previous FOUND TAROT card posts below.

OK, off to work on finishing my Halloween Costume for the party in the retirement community I live in. I'm going as "Words in Search of a Poem." I'm pinning lots of my favorites words all over my all black outfit, and I'll carry around yellow sticky notes and a pen in case anyone wants to add a word to me. Last year's costume party was lots of fun, so I'm looking forward to tomorrow's.

Oh, my it occurs to me it's highly appropriate, and may even be the reason why, I thought of a Death card for the FOUND TAROT tonight for 'tis the season to honor those who've gone before, while the veil between the worlds is very thin.

Blessed Samhain!
