Ann’s Fashion Tarot: Death

It’s the opposite of shopping season, today, for you. It’s your time to purge.

The regular Tarot Death card signals a loss or an ending that makes room for something new. The kind of ending that’s like, hey, I just can’t do this anymore. Because I think I want to do something else but you’re in the way.

The Fashion Tarot Death card commands you to go get some Steelsacs and spend a couple hours in your closet, and take a harsh look at everything and be real about what’s dead to you. If you haven’t worn it in a while, or you have but it failed to make you happy, or it doesn’t fit so it’s just hanging around taunting you, it goes. Put it in the bag. Get that bag to Goodwill or Salvation Army or your sister’s house or whatever as soon as possible.

This is not an easy card for a lot of reasons. You might not know where to start. You might get rid of something you’ll miss. Death is a tough one but it’s the only way to make space for what comes next. And what comes next is going to look amazing on you.

Death is sponsored by Rachael Hanel, a gravedigger’s daughter and author of We’ll Be The Last Ones to Let You Down.

    I’m not surprised that I serve as muse when Ann uncovers the death card. Read through Ann’s other entries if you get a chance for a unique interpretation on tarot.

    I’ve been purging my clothes and house and garage for 2 years now. There’s always something more to get rid of. Even if it’s last year’s wad of ratty black tights shoved in the back of your sock drawer.

    Viva Death Card.

  4. Glad this card served you well, ladies. I like the idea of Death battling elves.

    Amazingly I was ahead of the curve on this one. I cleaned out my closets last week-end and gave the old clothes to the Vietnam Vets.
