Tarot Card of the Month - Judgement

The Judgement card is ruled by Pluto, the planet associated with sexuality, physical and spiritual birth, death and resurrection.  The numerical value of this card is 20.

Based on the Christian Resurrection before the Last Judgement, an angel is depicted blowing a trumpet.  Beneath it, a group of humans are rising up from their graves with their arms outstretched.  They are greeting the angel in awe and reverence.

The Judgement card is about rebirth and resurrection.  It’s a calling for us to accept the past and let go in order to move on.  This is a time of significant change, when the querant has finally ‘seen the light’.  They are ready for change and to do things differently.  There is no way to change the past, it has already happened.  The only way forward is to accept and forgive mistakes and begin again.

This is a time of transformation, when we are ready to heed our highest calling.  We must be honest with ourselves and judge what best course of action needs to be taken in order to transform our lives.  We are ready to become who we truly are based on our past experiences. 

With the lessons already learnt we must now decide how best to put future plans into action while being true to ourselves.  There are many different paths that can be taken and the Judgement card urges us to make decisions based on our own integrity.
