The Death card represents change. A cycle now comes to a close, requiring a radical transformation. Such a transformation requires a part of oneself to be sacrificed to be able to continue to the next plane. It is important to understand that with this loss, something new can begin. Death carries a scythe not just to destroy, but to also sow the new harvest. In other words, in order for something new to grow, something old has to give way.
