Death, Great Arcanvm and Mystery!
Number 13 as well! Scary and spooky also.
But wise.
Here, in this old deck, the skeleton use the scythe like a broom, wiping off dust and human prides, also the symbols of all other cards before. Death remind us to be humble.
To end our matters without pride, with wisdom coming from the eternal. To feel with the bones, not with brains or hearts. Yes, exactly with the bones, a kind of feeling very few have.
Death teaches so much!
The 13th Atu also saves sometimes the reader 🙂 decks have many tricks they reveal with time and only to the right people in the right time and place.
Virtvs junxit mors non separabit.
