13 - Death

Author: Anja Heij

The skeleton with the scythe symbolizes the cutting through of old structures in our life, for instance relationships or patterns. By doing so we can move forward, so that death in one form becomes birth in a new form.

Meaning: transformation, (sudden) changes, ending of a phase, destruction.

Reverse: stagnation, immobility, slow changes.
