A Prophet You Can Depend On is an offering, a meditation, a magic eight ball and a reminder that letting go is the surest way to transform. In the traditional Smith Waite Tarot deck, the Death card speaks to the moment that transformation emerges; when one stops clinging to what is and makes way for something new. In popular culture the Death card has come to literally symbolize impending death or doom. Regardless of your question, the Death card is the only dependable prophet. Let go, Be transformed, Die.
