This is the only version of death that emphasizes the transformation side that I doesn't irritate me. The phoenix is appropriate as it is one of the symbols of Scorpio and I like the way it is incorporated into a living flame.

I spent a lot of time on the grim reaper kneeling. I came to the conclusion that this represents (for myself) that the process of dying while, important, bows to the greater awakening that takes place through loss and change.

For me this card was a perfect marriage between a traditional (or what I would consider traditional take on death) with the newer "emergence" meaning fro the card.
