Cards depicting Separation/ Death
Although many people fear the Death card, unless surrounded by other cards with the meaning of death, the Death card usually indicates transformation through the mind and spirit rather than physical death.
A true death reading will have several, at least 3 or more cards with the death meaning. If the reading does not contain several of these cards, the meaning of each card reverts back to the mundane. Giving a death or medical diagnostic reading is not recommended and could harm more than help your client. Be cautious here !
