fear of the unknown, being scared of life and death, fear of the dark, accepting fate, welcoming death as a friend
Interpretation of the card:
The picture shows a cemetery at night and depicts a woman running and screaming from a shadow she perceives as death. The figure of death is only partially depicted, as it is mainly a product of the woman's fear and imagination. Historically, death is often depicted as a skeleton, a reminder of the transient nature of life. The image you described has a face of the dead person popping out from behind the floating clothes, further emphasizing the presence of death.
