Daily Tarot Card: Judgement
About the Deck:
The Radiant Rider-Waite deck is one of the most popular decks on the market today. It is a more vibrant recolored version of the traditional Rider-Waite deck, originally published in 1910.
About the Card:
Today’s card is Judgement. This card is number 20 (XX) in the major arcana. This card shows some naked people seemingly rising up out of their coffins to greet the trumpet of the archangel Gabriel. The people greeting the angel are awaiting their judgement, arms outstretched to receive their blessings. The cross on Gabriel’s trumpet could be the red cross, the symbol of protection and healing.
Keywords: Judgement, Awakening, Rebirth, Absolution
This card for me shows that I need to do some self-evaluating and meditation. I need to take a step back from my life today and really assess what is going on, where I am going and find out what the best course of action for me right now is.
I have a lot going on and so this card showing up makes a lot of sense for me. I know from this card’s number that it means I am approaching a significant event in my life and I must be prepared to make the correct decision when it arises. The tarot cannot show me what to do or what choice to make, it can only advise me as I navigate through life’s twisted turns.
Judgement shows me that I am on the right path to meet my soul purpose and that I am very much being called by a higher consciousness towards it. I am in the right place at the right time, I am simply in need of some fine tuning.
This is an excellent time for me to also cleanse myself of any ‘sins’. As I am Shintoist, this means misogi – a type of purification ritual done with cold water, and perhaps re-making my haraigushi (a type of ritual -wand’).
This card gives me a lot of hope that I am where I am supposed to be. I do feel as though I am on the right path, I just end up getting distracted a lot of the time! This whole card and the meaning reminds me a lot of yesterday’s card, the Ace of Shells (Cups) and the meaning I took from that.
It is safe to say that at the moment I very much need to step back and meditate on my life in order to make the best choices for me in the near future.
