Death - Ghost Rider

Lately I've been doing tarot studies regarding various events that's happened since the start of the semester. And I just want to say that when the Death card came up in my readings I couldn't get the image of Ghost Rider out of my mind. It just seemed a too perfect archetype for the events.

I saw this movie on a date in High School and completely forgot about it until now. Ghost Rider is "based on the Marvel character, stunt motorcyclist Johnny Blaze gives up his soul to become a hellblazing vigilante, to fight against power hungry Blackheart, the son of the devil himself" ( I suppose the image of the skeleton on the Medieval Scapini card triggered the image of Ghost Rider since he is riding a skeleton of some animal whatever it may have been. Looks snake like.. anyway, during the reading there was absolutely NO way for me to have really understood what this card was trying to tell me. Because the divinary meaning of this card is the End of a Cycle, not necessarily death itself. Its been known to predict spiritual transformations. Though, that doesn't mean that the mundane meaning of the card should not be forgotten. Its just very RARE that tarot cards are literal. Tarot is the language of the mind, the archetypal mind and the reason why they work as a divinary system is that we all wonder through life via our consciousness and subconsciousness, so archetypal events and images are bound to make an appearance. Its been said that everything we experience that we consider to be the Manifest world is actually an illusion, something that our minds conjure up. In hypnosis studies its been said that we appear to have a collective agreement to be here in this physical world So everything that happens in life as mere events is part of the subconscious and is a reflection of it.
