The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: death

DEFINITIONS

Death: One of the trumps of the Major Arcana of the tarot. Numbered XIII. In the system of Eliphas Levi, it corresponds to the Hebrew letter Mem and the heaven of Jupiter and Mars. In the system of the Golden Dawn, Death corresponds to the Hebrew letter Nun and the astrological sign of Scorpio.

Death:

“Death is ‘a touch of the Soul which is too strong for the body;’ it is a call from divinity that brooks no denial; it is the voice of the inner Spiritual Identity saying: Return to your centre, or source, for awhile and reflect upon the experiences undergone and the lessons learnt until the time comes when you return to earth for another cycle of learning, or progress and enrichment.”


source: Pg. 78, The Unfinished Autobiography, by Alice Bailey, 1951, Lucis, New York - Carl Llewellyn Weschcke
