Prompt: Tessa

Card description:

Yes, the Death card can signal a death in the right circumstances (a question about a very sick or old relative, for example), but unlike its dramatic presentation in the movies, the Death card is far more likely to signal transformation, passage, change. Scorpio, the sign of this card, has three forms: scorpion, serpent, eagle. The Death card indicates this transition from lower to higher to highest. This is a card of humility, and it may indicate the Querent as being brought low, but only so that they can then go higher than they ever have before. Wang notes that Death “humbles” all, but it also “exults.” Always keep in mind that on this card of darkness, there is a sunrise as well.

Basic card symbols: Skeletal Death, black robes or armor, sometimes with a scythe or a flag featuring a white rose on a desolate black field. There is often a rising sun. Sometimes there are other figures in the field. The most common, reoccurring figure on Death cards is a child.

Artist’s notes:

It was fun putting this together. I wanted to put in a few basic symbols, so I chose to put white roses on her black dress, and a rising sun in the background. And even though scythes are not used in Supernatural, I couldn’t NOT put that in. ;)

Death: Tessa
