Judgment: A Card of ReckoningOctober 20, 2017
Are you now facing the consequences of decisions you’ve made in the past? It is inescapable that you will be held to account for your past actions and the Judgment card is the sign that you are entering a time of reckoning, which is required for you to embark on the next stage of your journey. This powerful card signals that the time has come for you to answer the call of the Universe and undergo a time of deep reflection, leading you to the next stage in your life’s journey.
The Judgment card is ruled by the planet Pluto, which is the ruler of the Underworld and prominently features the archangel Gabriel blowing his trumpet. The people below him are men, women and children who are rising from tombs and looking up towards the heavens. They are answering the call and awaiting Judgment to be handed down from the powers of the Universe. In the background of the card are looming mountain peaks and rising tidal waves that emphasizes the immense nature of inevitable change.
This tarot card has complex imagery featuring powerful symbols that give insights into the meaning of the card. Unlike other cards, this one features four colors of blue and white with yellow and red accents. The dominant color of the card is blue to show the close connection to the heavens and the spiritual world.
What It Means
The Judgment card is a powerful card that indicates the time of assessment and reflection required before you can embark on the next step of your journey. When this card appears in your reading, it is a sign that divine forces are holding you to account for your actions and decisions. This is your time of judgment and will set the stage for a significant transition leading to a new path in your life’s journey. If you heed the call of this card, you will be able to purge yourself of shame, regret and sorrow from the past to move forward with positivity and renewed hope.
Judgment in Love
When the Judgment card appears in a Tarot spread about love, it indicates that the pieces of your life are falling into place. You could also be facing an important decision that will change the rest of your life. Whether you’re deciding to stay or go, don’t be afraid to follow your intuition!
An upright Judgment card indicates a time of absolution and a release of negative emotions from your past. When the card appears reversed in a reading, it suggests that you find yourself mired in self-doubt. This self-doubt is preventing you from seeing new opportunities. Take this as your warning that if you refuse to accept change, you will experience stagnation and not grow into the person you have the potential to become.
The Judgment card in a Tarot reading is a strong signal that you are about to undergo a time of great change and transition leading you to the next stage of your life.
