Judgment: general, standing and reversed meaning

Judgment, general description

Judgment is the 21st card of the Major Arcana. It is part of Fatecaster’s Tarot card list that summarizes the Rider Waite Tarot cards’ meaning.

Looking at its name, this card could easily be misunderstood. The words “verdict” and “judgment” are usually associated with punishment, damnation. This misunderstanding results fear and fright. The card’s meaning can only be interpreted through the spiritual message of its symbols. The depicted resurrection demonstrates the captivating experience of redemption. It shows the freeing of hitherto hidden and detained things.

The true and divine emerge from the darkness of prisons and find their way to the sunlight. This is the proof of the card’s felicific meaning. It symbolizes the crucial step on the way of finding yourself. The card denotes those successful alchemical procedures that create something higher-leveled. In the everyday life, it means every form of redemption. The riddance from problems and need. Getting far from ungrateful situations and relationships. Leaving our inhibitions and timidity. It can also mean that the intention denoted by the card has hidden treasure.

The Judgment, standing

A fast and full decision. An answer to a long-continued question. Changing of perspective, usually towards understanding a greater truth. The last equalization of karma.

The Judgment, reversed

Procrastination and inability to decide. Disappointments and delay of unfinished things.
