It's no surprise to me that this card came up; if you watched my Saturday live-stream in my group you'll understand why.
Though this card does not represent an actual death, it does mean an ending and a deep and powerful transformation of the energies that had been dominant for a long time.
Everything changes, that is the only constant in life, and we have to let go and move forward, honoring the lessons we learned.
Out of those endings though, that horrible death, new things will come and new opportunities will present themselves. Just like flies that lay their eggs in what is rotting; their larva get nourishment and spring to life. Nothing lasts for forever neither the good nor the bad.
