Tarot : 13 - Death by puimun
Death - Closing the door to the past and opening a new one, going through transition, changing status, shedding the old and excess, inexorable forces and sweeping changes.
The Pheonix --
I had this concept in mind for the Death card for months now. Because this card is about the death of the old to make way for the new, the legend of the phoenix seemed to fit perfectly. Each day, the pheonix would sing the most beautiful song that even the sun would stop in the sky to hear. But after 1000 years, the phoenix builds up a next of sweet smelling herbs, and at sunrise would burst into flame to make way for the next newborn phoenix.
There is also a legend of the swan song -- that just before death, the swan also bursts out with the most heartrending melody.
It's a song of death and renewal....
