Of course the Death card is about ending/death/transformation of one thing into another. But the Wheel card could then be telling you that in spite of the ending, life goes on and nothing stays the same. I disagree, though, that it necessarily means something good is going to come about. It could just as easily mean something bad will come about. It just depends on where you or the situation already is on the Wheel---whether up or down.
"Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again." ~ Og Mandino
