Take a look at the death card below: the left shows you the Death card in the Rider Waite Tarot Deck, and on the right, we have the Death card from the Morgan Greer Tarot Deck.  ¶ THE MEANING OF THE FOUR SUITS IN A TAROT DECKEach suit, no matter what card you get, is attached to different concepts and themes.
