I find it ironic, that the Judgment card isn’t about judgment. Or more precisely, it’s not really about “being judgmental,” with the negative connotations we usually attach to the word.
Tarot “judgment” is a true and fair accounting. It’s not about laying blame nearly so much as it’s about taking proper responsibility, learning whatever there is to learn. It’s the kind of judgment you’d see coming from a Libra—even-handed, fair, and perhaps even polite!
Don’t let that make you think this is a squishy energy, though. Just like Judgment day, how pleasant (or otherwise) is totally dependent upon you. It’s neither unduly harsh (as we often are with ourselves) or unduly kind (as we often are with ourselves). Like Baby Bear’s porridge, this is JUST RIGHT.
If that doesn’t give you something to think about, I don’t know what will. Har!
Where do you usually fall on the self-judgment scale?
