I am currently considering taking a half gapyear from uni next year. Can you give me any advice? :)
when one card jumps out of a deck it indicates that this card is the one to be read. In your case the card is Death.
The Death card is not to be feared. It sows the ending of a cycle or situation so that new order and life ensues. The ending of a cycle of events so that that new opportunities can thrice. Letting go of past pain, old ways and associations means you can embrace the next phase of your life wholeheartedly. Great opportunities await.
