Judgement Tarot Card Description

The Archangel Gabriel blows a trumpet high in the sky. A banner, decorated with a red cross, hangs from the trumpet. Below we see six people rising from their coffins – a man, woman, and child in the foreground and three others in the background. They gaze at the angel with their arms extended. The open coffins are floating on a lake.In the background we see snowy mountains, which Waite described as the ‘mountains of abstract thought’.

What Judgement Means In A Tarot Reading

Judgement is about having an epiphany. This will be a time when you’ll have a deep and spiritual awakening. You’ll understand the truth and have a new understanding of life and the world around you. When Judgement appears in a reading something is about to happen, or has happened, that will bring about this awakening within you. You’ll emerge from this event with a new consciousness. Whatever is happening is going to effect a change deep within you.

There’s a sense also that you’ll leave the past behind. Whatever internal conflict you’ve been dealing with, or whatever you’ve done that you’re not happy about or proud of, will be left behind. This is the time to move on to a new chapter in your life. The way forward is clearer now, and you have a deeper understanding of your relationships, where you want to go, your priorities, what matters most to you. The appearance of the Judgement card is a game-changer.

By the time you see Judgement in a reading, you’ll have already begun this process of awakening and change. Events that have been happening to you, and the lessons you’ve been learning, have been preparing you for your moment of Judgement. Your unconscious will already have made the shift and you’ll already have begun to notice the change in yourself. This isn’t a bolt from the blue, but rather, the culmination of a process. 

Judgement Love And Relationships Tarot Meaning

The love you’re reading about is deep and spiritual and this relationship will bring about an awakening within you. The life lessons learned as a result of the relationship will stay with you forever.

Like all relationships, it’s quite possible that you’ll go through difficult times, but as you overcome these problems and difficulties together, you’ll find that your relationship grows stronger.

Judgement Career Tarot Meaning

You’re about to have an ‘a-ha’ moment concerning your job or career. This will be a life lesson and, once you’ve understood its significance, you’ll be able to move forward with your career. This awakening or realization will enable you to align your work with your soul’s purpose – whether that be in your current job, a change of career, or by focusing more on your life outside of the workplace. Sometimes we get too caught up in work and focus on it to the detriment of everything else and, of course, sometimes we don’t focus enough on our career and then we wonder why it’s not working out the way we’d planned. Whatever your situation, Judgement will bring a ‘wake-up call’ and things will be much clearer to you very soon.
