Two to go, please

"All endings are beginnings, we just don't know it at the time." - Mitch Albom

Death. I don't draw the death card often, maybe just a few times over the years.  The starkness of most death cards can be off putting, as I guess an actual experience of death can be.  I have knocked on heavens door, traversed to the other side; death does not frighten me. I do get a bit emotional about it, a big change can have that effect.  One of my biggest concerns with death is for loved ones.   I make sure I tell all of those close to me that I love them, cause later could be too late.
Everyone tries to soften this image to remove any stigma of fear from the Death card.  Yet..death comes to us all.  It is a natural progression of our Soul's experience.  You can't stop the rider when it comes, there is no bargaining with Death.
For me, forget those spilled three cups and pick up the two and make the most of today, cause tomorrow is never promised.

  1. What a great notion to take from this card: Enjoy what you have now and don't waist time moaning over what could have been. Maybe for now you're don with the Five of Cups :)

    1. I don't think so, I think the image of the Five of Cups is with me for the time being to remind me that Life gives us moments and then you have to move on. I spent some time yesterday looking the at Five of Cups in my decks. Then I took five cups out of the cabinet and set two up and three on their sides for a visual aid; still nothing completely resonated with me. So until I grasp the message, those cups will turn back up.

  2. We've gotten into the habit (my family and close friends) of never leaving each other without saying "I love you." I lost a few people that I never got to say that to, and I don't want to make that mistake again.
