The Judgment Card ~ Standing in Your Truth!
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is Judgment, representing: renewal, awakening and accountability. Here we see the Archangel Gabriel blowing his mighty horn on Judgment Day. But this card is not a “death sentence”. If fact it is the opposite! Judgment represents a potential rebirth, an opportunity for renewal--an awakening of great magnitude.
I call Judgment the “wake-up call” card, because it often signals a time where we are forced to face the truth, and take responsibility for our actions—big and small. This card encourages a critical analysis of life, a proverbial facing of the facts. By taking care of outstanding matters, unresolved issues, accounts and relationships, we can be free to experience our world in new and liberating ways! Hello rebirth!
In the process it’s easy to get caught up in black and white thinking—good vs. bad. Your new-found consciousness is not an excuse to judge yourself. Essentially, the whole point of Judgment is to not judge. Your life and your process is between you and your God, or higher self—and the same goes for others. Judgment encourages tolerance. It is said that unless you have walked in someone else’s shoes, you cannot truly understand their journey. In honoring your own choices, you can then honor the choices of others.
Finally, with Judgment, at the end of the day, I ask myself: “Did I do the best I could today?” And when the answer is usually “Yes!” I thank my angels and feel truly at peace.
This week, take action and wrap-up the unfinished business in your life. Great peace and renewal await!
