by Astrology Valley Mar 15 2023
Interpretation and general meaning (Upright):
The Judgement Tarot card, in a general sense, can signify that others are judging you or someone you care about too harshly. You might also be judging others harshly or making quick judgments about yourself. Additionally, Judgement can be a sign that you are able to evaluate yourself and make informed decisions. Your past karmic lessons have been redeemed, and you are now allowing healing to occur so that you can move in a positive direction. When the Major Arcana card arrives, you will need to make a major decision. Use the lessons from the past to guide you. A judge standing upright could indicate a resolution of a legal matter. This matter should be resolved in your favor if you are honest and have acted honorably. However, don't expect the world to change if you are dishonest. Clear your mind and make amends for any wrongdoings. The Major Arcana card may also indicate separation from someone you love due to an ocean or sea. It can be expected that you will soon be reunited with your loved one. It could also be a sign of homesickness.
Love and Relationships (Upright):
If you're in a relationship and judgement is indicated, you may be harshly judging your partner. Avoid blaming or accusing each other during arguments, as this could cause more harm than intended. Instead, sit down and discuss your feelings without trying to assign blame. Forgiving past mistakes is important for the relationship to progress. With simple, open, and honest communication, you may be able to bring new life to a struggling relationship. Judgement could also signify that people are judging you or your partner and may be referring to your relationship behind your back. However, it's important to rise above this situation as it's their problem, not yours. For singles, Judgement reminds you not to be too quick to judge potential partners. Give them a chance to get to know you before making a decision. It also reminds us to pay attention to how we present ourselves, as we never get another chance to make a first impression!
Money & Career (Upright):
A career Tarot reading can indicate that you are being evaluated or assessed, and it's possible that you are in the running for a promotion without knowing it. You are being watched, so it's important to be careful about how you present yourself. Don't let projects fall behind, and now is the time for you to get up to speed. Judgement says that financial decisions should be made carefully, and don't make quick judgements before making large purchases or investments. Additionally, you could be sued for negligence, so avoid driving dangerously or doing anything else that could lead to legal trouble. Make sure you have the most current insurance.
Judgement in a health context can refer to a time of healing and wholeness following a difficult illness. You've survived the difficult times and have learned from them. Now you are ready to take the necessary steps to get back on track.
Judgement is a symbol of spiritual awakening in a spiritual context. Now that you have learned the lessons of the past, you can understand the direction the universe is directing you. You are now ready to follow a more spiritually enlightened path. The Judgement Tarot card may indicate that you are ready to follow a more spiritual path.
Interpretation and general meaning (Reversed):
The reversed Judgement Tarot card can indicate that you are allowing fear and self-doubt to hold you back from making the right decisions to move forward. It is time to act now, or you could lose your opportunities if you wait. Alternatively, a Major Arcana card in a reversed position could indicate that you are refusing to learn from the karmic lessons learned in the past. You may also be blaming yourself for past failures and refusing to learn from them. You may also find yourself focusing on your own mistakes and engaging in gossipy behavior. Focusing on other people's problems instead of your own can lead to trouble. This can be a sign that people are too critical or judgmental of you, or that they blame you for something that isn't your fault. Do not let others influence your decisions. Instead, focus on what you are good at and leave the drama behind. A judge's decision can be reversed to indicate that a court case or legal matter will be resolved in an unfair or unjust manner.
Reversed: Love and Relationships
A reversed Judgement can be a sign that you are avoiding making decisions about your relationship due to self-doubt. It doesn't matter if the decision is about moving forward or ending the relationship, it must be made. If you hear negative gossip about your partner, it is important to get the facts before making a decision. Reversed Judgement Tarot cards can indicate problems that are caused by failing to learn from past mistakes. You might feel that you should be closer to your partner after going through a difficult time. Have you learned enough from your past experiences to apply that knowledge in your current relationship? Single? Judgement reversed could indicate that you are letting embarrassment or shyness stop you from approaching the person you want to be with. Don't let fear hold you back! It doesn't matter if it doesn't go the way you expect it to, but at least you will know that you tried.
Money & Career (Reversed)
You are at a pivotal point in your career, and this could be the turning point that will determine whether or not you succeed. If you are paralyzed by self-doubt, it is time to make a decision. You should not be indecisive. You must seize every opportunity that is presented to you, or you may regret letting them pass you by. Don't be too cautious when it comes to money. This doesn't mean you shouldn't be careful with your spending, but it won't hurt to loosen your purse strings. While you may be tempted to think about every purchase endlessly, if you really need it and can afford it, you should just buy it. While it's important to be financially responsible, you don't need to worry about every dollar you spend.
If you are suffering from a long-term injury or illness, Judgement Reversed might be telling you to let go. Negativity will make it more difficult to recover. If you want to move forward, you must accept who you are.
Judgement reversed in a spiritual context means that you are not learning from or refusing your karmic lessons. The universe will teach them to you stronger and bolder if you don't. These lessons will help you to move forward in positive ways.
