Death Card

Death (XIII) is the thirteenth trump or Major Arcana card in most traditional Tarot decks.  It is used in Tarot, tarock and tarocchi games as well as in divination.  The Death card commonly depicts a skeleton riding a horse. Surrounding it are dead and dying people from all classes, including kings, bishops and commoners.

According to authors on the subject, it is unlikely that this card actually represents a physical death.  Typically it implies an end, possibly of a relationship or interest, and therefore implies an increased sense of self-awareness—not to be confused with self-consciousness or any kind of self-diminishment.
