13 Maut

Maut, or Death in traditional Tarot, is an oft-misunderstood card. It does not allude to physical death but rather the end of one phase and the beginning of another. For Sufis, death is a transition, a natural change in one’s state of being; it is a cycle that we move through again and again in our lives as naturally as seasons change. When this card appears for you, you are being asked to accept change, to surrender, detach, and depend on no one but the One. The ending of one phase is always the beginning of another, just as death is always followed by rebirth. It is time to let go and stop resisting.
