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.
