General Coffin Meaning

The Coffin is the card of endings. It is for this reason that it is often interpreted by Cartomancers as representing death. When the card takes on a morbid flare, usually the death has been expected and after a long drawn out illness. In fact, the card is also associated with long term, serious illnesses which can threaten life but don't necessary cause death. Therefore, it is important to look at mirroring or surrounding cards before making any controversial predictions!

Coffin also signals something being put to rest after a long, drawn out ending. Finally, Coffin can symbolize leaving a job or a relationship your seeker lost passion for long ago.

Coffin rarely takes on a pleasant meaning even if the change is welcome. In general, the card can represent a dark spot and negativity. It is the card of mental illnesses and depression, so take these meanings into consideration when interpreting this card.

Specific Coffin Meanings

Love Meaning: Coffin can represent the illness of a lover or a relationship which is doomed to fail.

Career Meaning: Coffin means that your seeker will lose their job or catch an illness at work.     

Business Meaning: In a business reading, Coffin will say that your seekerโ€™s business is in danger. Take a look at surrounding cards to discover why this may be.

Positive: Coffin rarely has an appealing meaning, but it can represent an end to suffering, but the process will be rather painful.

Negative: For negative readings, Coffin is pretty self-explanatory.
