If you've ever read Tarot, you'll know that Transformation is another term for the Death card. This card does not usually mean someone (anyone) will die; it means the death of an idea, a way of life, a relationship, etc. and not always in a bad way. It just means something is going to change. Fire also stands for the Wand cards, which refer to your business life/job.
