Transformation. You need to profoundly transform yourself or a situation. If you cannot transform the situation, you must be willing to let it go. What has outlived its time must pass away to make way for new growth.

改變! 你必須徹底的改變你自己,或改變現況。 如果你無法改變現況,那麼你必須願意放棄,無論發生過什麼都必須停止,才能重生。


Death! A powerful energy indeed. Who can look at the dark, skeletal figure on Card 13 and not feel uneasy? Here we see the face of our deepest fear- our greatest unknown. We recoil from Death because we think of it as annihilation. In the Tarot (and in life I would suggest) Death is not a permanent end, but a transition into a new state. Life is eternal in its essence, if not in its form. To grow, to move, to live - we must "die" to the old to give birth to the new. It is a truism in Tarot work that Card 13 rarely has anything to do with physical death. A responsible card reader never interprets Card 13 in this way because this view is too limiting. Death is not something that happens once to our bodies. It happens continually, at many levels and not just in the physical. Each moment we die to the present so the future can unfold. In readings, Death often represents an important ending that will initiate great change. It signals the end of an era; a moment when a door is closing. At such times, there may be sadness and reluctance, but also relief and a sense of completion.

死亡! 無庸置疑是一股強大的力量。
誰能夠自在的盯著這第13張牌上的黑色骷髏?
我們看到了內心深層、不為人知的恐懼,
人們畏懼死亡因為我們認為他代表著毀滅。
在塔羅裡(我認為人生中亦如此)死亡並非永恆的結束,而是獲得重生的轉捩點。
撇開形勢不談,生命的本質是永恆。
為了成長、行動、或活下去,我們必須讓陳舊的事物「死去」而給予新「生」;我們曉得塔羅裡第13牌所指的並非身體上的死亡,
一位盡責的塔羅使用者絕不會如此解釋「死神」這張牌,
因為如此的作法太過於狹隘。

死亡不只在我們的身體裡發生一次,它不斷的在重複發生,
透過不同層次,也非侷限於肉體;
每每我們從現況中死去,「未來」之門便被開啟;
「死神牌」通常代表著重要的結束,且意味著重大的改變;
它暗示著一個時代的尾聲、一扇門的關起;
此時你會悲傷和百般不願,但同時也會感到事情的結束以及鬆了一口氣。


Death also suggests getting down to basics. Dying has a way of making you concentrate on what's important. This card reminds you to cut out the unnecessary. Death can also mean you will experience an inexorable force. Death is inevitable, and sometimes there are events that are inescapable as well. When these moments occur, the best approach is to ride your fate and see where it takes you.

「死神牌」意味著你必須回歸原點,
體驗死亡使你對重要的事物更全神貫注,
這張牌提醒你拋棄無謂的煩惱,
「死神牌」也代表著你將會感受到那股不可牴觸的力量,
死亡是不可抗拒的,有時有些事情是你逃不掉的;
當那個時刻來臨,最好的辦法是 — 乘著命運,看命運將帶領你前往哪裡。


A habit or pattern has become difficult to break and you alone have not been able to correct it. You have no recourse now but to step aside and let the Higher Powers move in and lead you out of the difficulties. You must accept this 'death' in whatever form it takes if a resurrection is to occur and the situation restored to its rightful or proper condition.

習慣和模式很難改變,你沒有能力作修正,
你沒有辦法只好讓開,讓更強大的力量走向你並且帶領你從困難中走出,
如果你將會得到重生,且你的處境將會回正確的軌道上
那麼,無論是什麼形式,你必須接受「死亡」。


You will get the rare chance to know the clear, nurturing, supportive and heartfelt emotional exchange that is the mark of a good romantic, familial or business relationship. Few things are more valuable.

你將得到寶貴的機會,
體驗一份清晰可見、滋養、讓你信心十足且真誠的情感交流,
它代表一段愛情、家庭或事業上關係的開始,
沒有什麼比這更難能可貴。


Death contain the elements of sudden and unexpected change. Though the immediate thought is toward the negative, an end need not mean failure. The loss could be unexpected surprises ending a period of turmoil or problems. You feel you can no longer go along with the status quo and want things to change radically. Many changes are going to take place and in three to six hours, days, weeks or months a new direction will emerge and the 'dead' shall rise again.

「死神牌」帶來的是意外的改變,
雖然當下你會有負面的想法,但是結束並不代表失敗,
失去,可能意想不到的讓你從一段時間的混亂或問題中解脫;
你覺得不需再維持現狀,並且期待事情能夠徹底積極的改變
許多改變正在發生,也許3-6小時內、幾天、幾週、幾個月之內,
新的方向自然會出現,
然後死亡亦會再降臨,
生生不息。


The Death card is probably the most feared and misunderstood of all the cards in the Tarot deck. In general, people tend to take the meaning of this card far too literally and fear that the indication is for the death of either themselves or others. Relax! The card of Death can be one of the most fruitful and positive cards in the deck. Death is a symbol of the ending of some phase or aspect of our lives that may bring about the beginning of something far more valuable and important. If we encounter this card in a reading it may be an indication that we need to learn to let go of unhealthy attachments in our lives to pave the way to a fuller, more fulfilled life of deeper meaning and significance.

「死神牌」可能是塔羅牌組中最為恐懼且被誤解的牌,
大體上,一般人太執著於牌面上的字義,
害怕抽到此張牌意味著自己或他人的死亡;
放輕鬆! 「死神牌」應該是塔羅牌組中最成功且正面的牌,
死亡象徵著生命中的某一階段終於告一段落,
並且預告著,更可貴且重要的事物正要開始,
如果抽到這張牌,它可能在告訴我們,
必須學會將過去那些不健康的情感放下,
為更完美、成功、且富有更深層意義的人生作準備。


The Death card is a card of change, a card of transition. We are transformed by the death of old ways of thinking and by releasing ourselves from clinging attachments that restrain our further growth. The Death card represents the clearing of the old to usher in the new and therefore should be welcomed as a positive, cleansing, transformative force in our lives. "Unless the seed should fall to the ground and die, it shall never bring forth fruit" should be the guiding spirit under which this card is understood. The death and clearing away of limiting factors can open the door to a wider, more satisfying experience of life. What changes are you experiencing? What phase of life is passing away to open you to a richer experience? Or, more actively, what can you do to bring about positive change in your life? Notice, the sun is setting in the distance. Or is it rising?

「死神牌」是一張代表轉變的牌,
我們從舊思想中轉變,從過於阻撓我們前進的執著中解脫,
死神牌代表拋棄過去陳舊的事物,迎接新的未來;
因此我們應該接受生命中那股正面、清新、帶來轉變的力量,
「除非種子掉到土壤裡並死去,否則它永遠不會開花結果」—
這正是這張牌所要闡述的精神。
死亡以及從受限中解脫,為我們開啟另一扇門,
引領我們前往更寬、更滿足的生活;
你正在體驗什麼改變?
人生中什麼階段正在結束,並且將帶給你更豐富精采的人生?
又或者,更積極的來說,你能做些什麼,為自己的人生帶來轉機?
你注意到了嗎?
太陽正在不遠的地方,緩緩升起。


Death of the old is necessary for the new to emerge. The old is like the compost heap, full of rich experiences from which new forms emerge. If we resist changes we may experience pain, emotionally and physically, but if we exercise our creative imagination and visualise a new, more peaceful, at-ease self, a self that is in a better position than before, then we can move more easily through the unknown fathoms of death and let it take us from constrictive patterns of the past to emerge like the phoenix soaring upward. Death is getting down to the bare bones. It asks us to look at our true inner yearnings for emotional and spiritual peace. It asks us to be reborn through our union with a Greater Power.

過去的結束是為了新的開始,
過去豐富的經驗滋養了新生,
倘若我們抗拒改變,我們也許會感到身心靈上的痛苦不堪,
但只要我們能妥善運用想像力,去見證一個全新、心靈平靜、更棒的自我,
那麼,我們就能輕鬆的通過那未知的死亡世界,
讓他帶著我們離開令人喘不過去的過去,
然後像鳳凰一樣,浴火重生,飛向天際。
死亡,是要我們認真看待自己所缺乏的,
死亡,是要我們檢視自己內心最深處,對情感、對心靈的渴望,
死亡,是要我們擁抱那股強大的力量,並獲得重生。


This card does not presage a physical death but, like the harvest, marks the end of a cycle in which the seeds of a new one are sown. As the earth undergoes a yearly cycle of death and renewal, in our lives we undergo many such cycles. The Death card marks the end of phase of your life that can never be recaptured. This does not necessarily have unpleasant connotations -the birth of a child will mean a radical change of lifestyle, as might a marriage or a change of residence, but nevertheless the old way of life is dead and the loss must be acknowledged, come to terms with, and in some way mourned.

這張牌並非預告著肉體上著死亡,而是豐收,
它代表著一個循環的結束,播種的時機來臨;
大地歷經四季的交替、生命的榮枯循環,
人的一生中,亦是如此,我們不斷的在體驗死亡、然後重生;
「死亡牌」意味著一個階段的結束,而且那是你回不到的過去,
或許你會對過往感到悲傷痛苦,
但你必須意識到自己過去這段時間裡,
結束了什麼又失去了什麼。
這張牌不只代表負面令人不悅的結束,
也有可能是 新生命的誕生、結婚或搬家,
這些都將徹底改變你的人生。





Reversed

Reversed, Death indicates that we may in fact be refusing to change or creating large obstacles against any element of change that may arise. There is a sense of stagnation, of being stuck in a rut, of being unwilling to adapt to a new situation. Assess the way in which you are approaching change in the coming week. You may find that you are in fact halting the very change that will be too your benefit. You may fear the new, but rest assured the time is right to accept the new. Cleanse yourself and flush out the old. Get rid of those cobwebs!!
Temporary, stagnation, death of political figure or upheaval. Changes for the worse.

(逆位)

逆位的死神牌意味著我們抗拒改變,
或正試著阻止任何改變;
帶有停滯不前的味道,
不願意接受新的情勢;
接下來幾個禮拜,你應該試著接受改變,
你會發現其實你所抗拒的事物對你本身而言是利多的,
或許你害怕新事物,但時間會證明接受它才是明智之舉,
釐清自己的想法,拋棄舊觀念,
撥開烏雲見天日吧~!
