Death Card Upright – Yes or No
You’ve walked through the door and now it’s closing behind you. The key around your neck might not fit that lock anymore, but that’s okay, it fits the lock of the door in front of you. If this card has appeared then it is the end of something in your life, but this ending gives birth to something new and something that is much more likely to bring you happiness and positive energy.
Have you perhaps asked the cards ‘is this change a good thing’ or ‘will I be happy in the future’? If so, then the Death card has come to give you an answer of ‘yes’. Let death put his hand on your shoulder and lead the negativity away from you.
Death Card Reversed – Yes or No
What have you got clutched in your palms? Is it that past lover you simply can’t get over or perhaps that job which you didn’t get? Whatever it is, its time to open your hands and let it go. Much like in the upright position, Death reversed is still very much a card about change. It’s an encouraging message and is trying to remind you that if you’re chained to the past behind you, you can’t walk very far forward.
When in reverse, this card offers you a sometimes harsh, but necessary, ‘no’ in response to your questions. This card is likely to appear if you have asked questions such as ‘should I go back’ or ‘did I make a bad decision’. Remember that all you need to do is put one foot in front of the other.
Death Card Upright Meaning for Love – Yes or No
It’s very easy to get comfortable in a relationship, but that comfort can also lead to a lack of passion and communication. This card symbolises that it is time for change, it doesn’t necessarily mean end the relationship. However, it does mean that if something isn’t changed then the relationship could end. Be warned if this card is paired with the Three of Swords, you may need to end the relationship before it ends in betrayal and heart break.
As an answer to your questions, this card gives you a ‘yes’, but it isn’t an easy yes. You’re going to have to work for it. You may have asked ‘can I make this work’ or ‘do I need to make a change’ and you have a clear response to these questions, you just need to work hard to make it happen.
Death Card Reversed Meaning for Love – Yes or No
If you are spending your time looking at the ground, it isn’t surprising that you feel alone. Keeping your head down means that you can’t see all the amazing people around you. This card is more likely to appear if you are single because it is showing that you are resisting changing your views on romance and that is preventing you from finding anyone. Whereas, if you are in a relationship, it’s likely that either your or your partner is resisting change in the relationship and you need to discuss what should be done.
This card does not have a set answer of yes or no as it depends on the situation, you’re currently in. I instead offer you the slightly ambiguous answer of ‘maybe’.
Death Card Upright as Advice – Yes or No
Advice is a tricky old thing, who do you ask for it and who should you give it to? If you have asked the tarot cards for advice and Death has appeared in an upright position, then it gives you a response of ‘yes’ to the question you posed.
If you are asking whether you should take some advice that you have been given, then this card still offers you a ‘yes’. However, just make sure that this advice is something that can help you move forward.
Death Card Reversed as Advice – Yes or No
This card, in a reversed position, is begging you to take the correct advice. Whether it is something a close friend has suggested or something you’ve thought of on your own, you need to take this advice. Something has happened that is causing you to cling to the past and, as hard as it is, you need to let it go. If you don’t take this advice, then years down the line you may regret it. This card, more often than not, gives you a firm answer of ‘yes’ in response to your questions.
Death Card Upright Meaning for Career – Yes or No
Are you sat at work and just begging for a sign to tell you to leave? Well, this card is that sign. If you think that you can go for that change in career, then you can. There may be ups and downs on your journey but having that change in career can influence your happiness in amounts that you may never have thought possible.
Enjoy the positivity that this card gives you. If you have asked ‘should I leave my job’ or maybe ‘would I be happier elsewhere’ then this card is giving you a firm, ‘yes’. Go out and find your happiness.
Death Card Reversed Meaning for Career – Yes or No
If this card appears in reverse, it is still pushing you to make the change that you know you need to make. It is simply highlighting to you that you are resisting this change and that isn’t good for you. Not making the change you need can lead to things that will only add to your current negative feelings. These things might be a decrease in pay or a close colleague leaving. Either way, it is trying to tell you that you should leave whilst you can. It might be hard to believe but staying still and comfortable isn’t always a good thing.
This card offers a ‘yes’ in response to the questions that you ask. You should take those risks that you need to take to make changes.
Death Card Upright Meaning for Finances – Yes or No
I’m sorry if this card has appeared because of a recent financial loss, but this card is telling you that you can learn a lesson from this. If you change your relationship with your finances and change your thoughts about money, then you can avoid a loss like this again in the future.
This card most commonly gives you an answer of ‘no’ to your questions. You may have asked ‘should I make this investment’ or ‘should I loan this money’ and this card is telling you that you need to change how you deal with your money before making any big decisions concerning it.
Death Card Reversed Meaning for Finances – Yes or No
This card is not the most positive when concerning finances. It might mean that there is a going to be a loss that is essentially inevitable. However, you should take solace in the fact that this card is here to tell you that you can handle it. All you need to do is make some simple changes and you’ll be fine.
These changes could be very minor things such as ordering takeaway less. You may have to shift you finances around but this card offers you a reassuring answer of ‘yes’ and is here to remind you that you can get through this.
Death as the Answer to ‘Am I on the Right Path?’
Whether this card is upright or reversed, it signals that you might not be on the right path. If it is upright then you know change needs to happen, you know that you need to take a few steps back and take the other road that you originally passed. In a reversed position, it might mean that you’re not going down any path at all. If you don’t make changes you aren’t going to go down the right path as you won’t be moving forward at all. In both upright and reversed positions this card is a response of ‘no’ to this question.
