The Judgement Card

Every judgement blocks the light!

“We judge others instantly by their clothes, their cars, their appearance, their race, their education, their social status. The list is endless. What gets me is that most people decide who another person is before they have even spoken to them. What’s even worse is that these same people decide who someone else is, and don’t even know who they are themselves.”

Like many cards within the tarot deck, the image of this visually challenging card depicting a biblical scene of the day of judgment, can often stir the waters a little and trigger the shadow. Particularly if you don’t aline with the Christian ideas and beliefs.

Here we go, this is the time in the reading when I’ll receive unsolicited advice, a gentle slap on the back of the hand, for all my wrongdoings. The conclusion many of us can understandably jump to, particularly given the somewhat sinister image upon many versions of the Judgement card, an angel of God calling the dead back to life only to receive the ultimate judgment from the Lord. Those who have lead a virtuous life goes to heaven, the rest of us are condemned to eternal damnation! 

No wonder this cheery message can provoke a mixed response. But wait, while the meaning of this card has Christian influences, more a commentary on the time when the traditional images where created. As with all the cards, the meaning of this card has expanded and evolved, some may say matured. Developed to embrace a more holistic, less “Christian” overtone, growing into a more advisory and empowering card to receive within a reading. A calling to examine our direction, readjust or trajectory, to be less judgmental to others, and equally as important, with ourselves, to offer just a few interpretations.  

My readings are all about personal sovereignty, enabling and empowering the individual to break free from the illusory ropes that bind them. To abandon negative thinking, self-judgment and criticism, to encourage my clients to disconnect from negative external influences that disempower, or seek to manipulate and control. To hold in our minds that we can choose if we desire to start again, to reinvent and rebirth into a new state of existence. In many ways, the essence of this much-misunderstood card. For despite this somewhat triggering image, arguably, it brings one of the most important and liberating messages of all!
