Divinatory Meaning
Death indicates change, transition and re-birth, and doesn't necessarily portent a physical death. It symbolizes transformation: The end of the old so that the new might grow. This could mean marriage, a new job or the beginning of a new era. It takes courage to meet new challenges.

Reverse Meaning
Stagnation. Fear of change or challenge. A metaphorical death with no subsequent re-birth. Inertia.
