I swear, I wasn’t just trying to soften y’all up yesterday with the birthday party! You know how the cards are. They say what they want to say, when they want to say it. Who are we mere mortals to argue?
It’s Judgment. Now, I don’t inherently see judgment as a difficult card, but it CAN be. It’s kind of like a Saturn transit—how easy or hard this energy goes down depends a lot on you. Associated with Pluto, Judgment can hand out a bitch slap or two if you’ve got one coming. But it’s not universally bad news. Judgment can also hand out prizes, or at least just desserts.
It’s just that this energy is…without sentimentality, you know? Uncompromising. Unmovable. There’s no plea-bargaining on Judgment Day. The accounts have been taken and the scores tallied.
The Zombie Tarot shows us the fellow that actually pushes the button, very far removed from the bomb that he drops, and hence removed from the fallout said bomb will create. And this is what you can expect with judgment: a dispassionate weighing of evidence, final outcomes based on the deep, dark truths and not a glossy, stylized version of the facts.
The other side of the story here is that Mr. Button-Pusher will also have to live with his decision. He won’t be able to take it back. Let’s hope he put some solid evaluation into his choice.
The appearance of Judgment urges us to be completely even-handed in both making big decisions and assigning responsibility after the fact. Make sure you can comfortably defend your choice as righteous before you push that button. It’s not the time to be impulsive. And if the bomb has already dropped, don’t underplay or overplay your own role in the situation, as it will not serve you. Either before or after the fact, the job here is to come to terms with what the entire situations means. The only way to complete a lesson and move past it in your life curriculum is to learn it.
You feeling this?
