Judgement

Number 20, Judgement Card.

Here in this card we see a Pixie rising from the dead, in response to the trumpet call from the clouds. Their arm reaching for the sky symbolizes that they are ready to be judged by the universe. They are ready to have their actions evaluated to find out where they will spend the rest of eternity.
The tidal wave in the background shows us that the judgement is unavoidable and that this judgement is final.
It is through self-reflection that we can have a clearer understanding of where we are in our lives and what we can do in order to grow and better ones self. Judgement tells us that you are getting closer to a significant point in your life.
This card can also show us that you have been doing a lot of self-reflection and evaluating. You are on the path of awakening. You have a clearer idea of what you may need to change in order to become your true self and have all your needs met.
May it be small changes in your daily life, or making a large change that might also affect those around you. Whatever it is, know that it is the right choice for you at this time.

Reverse:

Upright:

Self-doubt, Self-loathing, Lack of self-awareness, Failure to see the lesson

Card in Reverse:

Judgement in reverse can mean that you may be judging yourself too harshly, or that you are overcome with self-doubt. You may be missing some good opportunities that have presented themselves, but you didn't go through with them due to your lack in self-confidence. It's possible that you're feeling like you've fallen behind on your plans, which can make it feel extremely difficult to take steps forward.
The Judgement card can also suggest a lack of self-awareness. You may not be giving yourself time to reflect and take in all of life's precious lessons. In order to grow in life, we must see the meaning behind all things.
You might also be too critical of yourself and past actions. Perhaps you're having trouble with forgiving yourself, or even someone else, in order to move forward in your life. It's okay, we all make mistakes. Mistakes are life lessons and we need them to grow. If none of us made mistakes, we wouldn't learn anything.
Try not to focus on past mistakes, people are too wrapped up with themselves and their own lives to care about your mistakes. They're most likely thinking about their own. Try journaling and meditating on forgiving yourself, or those who have wronged you.

Upright: The Judgement card in love suggests that it may be time to do some self-reflecting, and maybe taking a closer look at your relationship. Is there anything that needs to be changed? Things that you may have overlooked might seem more obvious now.
Make sure to be transparent and communicative with your partner. Try to be aware of both of your needs. Sometimes even small changes can have a great effect on your relationship. Choices that you made in the past may be catching up with you at this time. Be sure to see the lessons behind your mistakes and take notice of any patterns you may have had in the past.

Reversed: Sometimes things may seem a little cloudy. Be sure that anything you choose to do or say is accurate and fair before acting on them. The Judgement card tells us that perhaps there is some sort of compromise that needs to be made.
There may be something that you are unhappy with. Perhaps there is something missing? Have you been seeing things clearly? Or through rose coloured lenses? Try to open your eyes to see your relationship for what it truly is. Be honest with yourself. Often times the most difficult decision is the most liberating.

Upright: You may be going through some positive shifts in your career path. You might have found your calling! Sometimes even positive changes in our lives can be stressful, but with this comes a feeling of transformation and growth.
Try to be aware of how your actions and choices are affect others around you in the work place. Take some time to yourself to evaluate your behaviours and take note of anything that could use improving.
Be aware of any financial habits you may have. What is your spending like? Is there anything that you can improve on when it comes to your finances?

Reversed: Have you been judging yourself too strongly when it comes to your work or finances? It can be hard to let go of past disappointments and mistakes, it's only natural.
You may not be noticing the lessons behind some past mistakes. There may be a lack of self-awareness here. Try to take note of how you've been behaving at work. Have you been working hard and doing all you can? Are you communicating well with others? Are you taking responsibility for your actions?
