01/26/12: Accessing Truth | Judgment



“Say not, ‘I have found the truth,’ but rather, ‘I have found a truth.’ ” Khalil Gibran

Tarot_20_JudgmentToday’s Tarot is “Truth” of the Psychic Tarot Oracle, better known as Judgment (Pluto), number 20 of the Major Arcana. As is this deck’s style, the image is quite a bit softer than the traditional, RWS version of Judgment, which I’ve nicknamed the Zombie parade! But the idea itself remains powerful.

It’s relevant to note that as one of the Tarot twos, there is an emphasis on duality, polarity. There are two sides to this story! Associated with Pluto, the truth here is deep, perhaps dark, but definitely meaningful.

Accessing the truth behind Judgment can be a bit of an ironic exercise, however, because it often entails suspending judgment—the attachment to one side of a story, determinations of good and bad, picking winners and losers all get in the way. A healthy level of detachment is required to see clearly. Facts are much less in question than interpretation.

As an outcome, Judgment tells us what goes around comes around. Everyone will get their just desserts. As advice, Judgment suggest an even-handed accounting of responsibility, making sure not to exclude yourself, but if possible from a once-removed perspective. You may be too close to the issue.

But regardless, Judgment reminds us the truth will surface. All things will happen as they should, and there’s pretty much nothing that can be done to change that. I find the concept oddly reassuring, you know? Karma is on the job!
