From the Robin Wood deck

This troublesome card.

The third aspect of the Goddess and, at her most benign, a warning that all is fleeting and we cannot cling too tightly to the things of this world.

So of course she is Death, the transition from this world to the next. But each transition of this life can be described – and experienced – as a form of Death and many of the cards in the Tarot refer to that process of rebirth and regeneration.

Perhaps those other cards deal with our response to change – whether we grow and move on or cling vainly to the past.

But this card is speaking at a deeper level. When the Lady beckons, we must follow, and put our trust in her, for good or ill.
