Karma. What goes around comes around. Chickens coming home to roost. Something has found its time. Answering your calling. Awakening, Decision Making, Destiny.
Unlike the ‘Justice’ card, which does cover legal matters or judgement, this is not the card of judgement in a legal sense. This is a card of personal judgement, when you can make a judgement on something in your life, a decision or a choice. It can present a time when we are being judged by past actions and are able to reap what we sow. ‘What goes around comes around’, when life weighs up the decisions and actions made in the past and we reap the reward or suffer the consequences. This is a card that can often indicate a time when we are called to take action, that we are being judged by our ability to show up and take action. At the same time that is when decisions and actions in the past are creating our current reality, the decisions and actions being taken now are shaping our future reality. We have reached a period in our life that we have been preparing for, that we are called on to fulfil our sense of purpose and to do more than simply go through the motions.
Reversed or with challenging cards around the Judgement card, we feel that we are being judged by others or that we are judging ourselves too harshly. If this does indicate that past actions or decisions come back to haunt us, this is also a chance to take responsibility for that. We can’t change the past but we can change the decisions we make now. Putting off making a decision out of fear of making a mistake.
