Tarot Card Meanings: Tarot Reading And Understanding The Judgment Tarot Card
Judgment signifies the concluding transition of the personality. It represents the final stage of balancing the conscious and unconscious mind. The integration of the two parts of the psyche has been completed. The psyche has experienced a deep transformation that has enabled it to become a channel for the Divine Spirit. Through the Sun, the soul has patiently grown to its full potential. The angel of rebirth blows its horns and the soul is, at last, set free. It is time to come to terms with the fact that the journey is almost over.
In a Tarot reading, Judgment represents a call from Divine Spirit. One’s perspective has shifted and a new spiritual awareness has caused a breakdown of the ego. With the loss of the ego, synthesis of all that has been transformed within the self can be achieved. This union is not only within one’s self, but it is also with the Divine Spirit. Through Divine Spirit, the soul is reborn. Judgment’s Tarot card meanings represent the end of another cycle, and the Judgment card requires us to review the journey and determine our progress. Ultimately, Judgment is the card of resurrection. It calls for self-evaluation for the purpose of transformation.
The negative aspect to the Judgment Tarot card is the concern that one will not hear the call from Divine Spirit or that it may be misinterpreted. In this case, one will continue to seek familiar comforts or attempt spiritual enlightenment through inappropriate methods.
