Tarot cards are a fascination of mine and being in denial and confused because Tammy had begun "peeping, peaking" yet she was still (autonomic-ally) drinking water, I performed a Tarot reading. I carefully choose a card asking to be given the truth of the situation (I'm an Aquarius, Aquarius Rising Truth seeker).  I carefully passed my hands slowly over the cards asking to be guided to the card that would reveal the truth.  Additionally, Facade dot com does reversals so I actually did two readings.  I drew the Death card.  However, the card was reversed.  Further the card was paired with the ten of swords in these readings.  Dr. Susan Greenberg called the following morning (see prior reading) and asked if she was in pain.  I said that I did not think so because of the cluster of lesions the X-rays revealed at the top of the spine with a lesion inside the spinal column that was "inoperable".  This lesion was shielded by bone and protected by the sealed off nature of the spinal fluid.  

Reversed Death Tarot Card Meanings. Death is a card of transformation and new life, and typically shows a need to start completely over by letting go of the past. Death reversed typically reflects that you are on the verge of major change but for some reason, you are resisting making that change.

Aeclectic Tarot: Ah, the Death Card. Signifies an end to something, a time of grieving with the hint that there will be something new to take the place of this lost thing in the future. Rebirth is at the other end of this tunnel, but a dark tunnel must be traversed. Reversed?

1) Opposite: The easiest reversal here is to say that something does not come to an end, or it does not die. But this may not be as good a thing as it sounds. Ever have a favorite TV show? You watch it over three seasons, it hits a pinnacle of being brilliant and wonderful...and then it starts to go down. And as it sinks and gets worse, and as it stretches out you begin to wish it had ended after that pinnacle. Sometimes, things need to come to a blessed end. Anyone who's had someone in the hospital, alive but not alive, holding to life but not living, knows that "not death" isn't a desired thing. Not death keeps people from grieving, and from starting over again when done. It just stretches out a "not-life."

2) Blocked: Unlike the Opposite, I would say that the Blocked interpretation does allow for the death or ending of something. The real energy of the card here is about that time of grief and nadir that leads to re-birth. If this is blocked, then the querent can't grieve. They can't face or relieve the pain of loss. They remain at one end of the tunnel, refusing or unable to transverse it.

See the last entry... Coldplay' Miracle video. Tammy and I also grew up with railroad tracks in our back yards.
Tammy left this world next to a set of railroad tracks running north / south -- like the dogsleds were running in Reverend Kathy Grave's images during one of our earliest sessions -- see magnetic pole reversals (Tammy being the heart and me the Beacon

Ten of Swords:  When the 10 appears, however, it is a clear signal to be careful about where you put your trust

Linda "The Psychic" Shields "Trust no one"

The Ten of Swords reversed indicates a painful ending which must occur for there to be growth and regeneration. The suit of Swords is the suit of thoughts, plans, and attitudes, and this card is very appropriate in the area of mental transformations.
