“Tarot cards are often used to predict the future. Card number XIII (13) is the card of Death, associated with dramatic change and an End. As we draw our own fate, and ask ourselves: What is my fate, What is the fate of the world? we see ourselves, we see Death. The Climate is changing, our planet is approaching a rapid decline; can we, the bringer of death, change our hand fated by the cards?”
