Tarot Tuesday ~ The Judgment Tarot by Jason
The Judgment card represents a move from the old to the new. We are in the process of being raised to new levels, based on our past performances. It is a card of listening to the direction of our soul and aligning ourselves in preparation for that which we are becoming.
The image on the Judgment card differs greatly in the Wizard Tarot than from the classic decks. Depicted are four students taking a test. They represent the four elements: fire, air, water, and earth, which in turn represent the Spirit, Mind, Emotions, and Body. We take tests in order to judge where we are at a given point in time. If we have learned from the lessons of the past, we can then successfully integrate them into the totality of our being.
The instructor is dressed in black, symbolizing the gravity of the type of change that judgment signifies. Her book sports the glyph of Pluto on the cover, the planet of death, regeneration, and unavoidable change. Important changes that one has been moving towards.
There is a phoenix resting at the top of the card, symbolizing the mystic bird that bursts into flames and then rises again from the ashes. This symbolizes the ability to rise up from our own perceived failures and defeats, and reinvent oneself. The Hebrew letter shin is worked into the upper corner window and can mean sacred fire or change. It certainly taps into both meanings, with the phoenix being the perfect symbol for a being that is consumed by fire and then reforms itself for the better.
As you obtain a clearer meaning of your life’s purpose, then it’s essential that all of your parts are working together in harmony to further you along.
A clear Spirit-Mind-Body channel enhances the flow of your energy.
For example, if you are looking to make a change in your career, you can look at what you’d like to do and what you are excited about doing. Then make a plan to move towards this goal, either through education, or an existing opportunity. And then ACT — go to school, or throw yourself into the necessary experiences that will facilitate your attaining the knowledge to move forward.
If you’re looking at entering a new love relationship and the Judgment card plays a part, you can focus on the reinvention aspects and face past mistakes, learn from them, and move on to happier and healthier times.
With Judgment, all of the elements are coming into alignment to put you over the top and take you to a higher level. You have brought yourself to this defining moment. This new you is calling; are you ready to take the next step?
