Astro Glyph: Scorpio
Hebrew Letter: Nun (Fish; To grow, to sprout, to propagate.)
Golden Dawn Title: The Child of the Great Transformers, The Lord of the Gate of Death
Meaning: Change; an ending, closure, purging; regeneration, metamorphosis. Some part of our life has died (career, relationship, living situation, etc.) to allow for something new to come in.
The Sun is rising. Though one could easily say it's setting. For endings & changes are difficult (painful even) times in our life. However, in Death we transform. What dies becomes compost for new life. Science even says that energy never dies. Ever-transforming, ever-changing, we are eternally cycling through the Law of Transformation. Death's true meaning is in its never-ending movement and transfiguration which is constant with change. It is fear of change, of the unknown, that makes Death an enemy. A white rose grows from the skeleton's hand. The skeleton, aka Death, is fertilizing and feeding it new life. Like when a tree is felled and then new shoots grow from its stump. Life brings death and death brings life. The Sun may be setting, but it is certainly rising somewhere else.
