Judgement: time for a change
The Angel Gabriel sounds the call on his trumpet. In response, naked men, women, and children rise up from coffins floating on water. In the background high snowy mountains rise against a blue sky. It’s Judgement Day.
The Judgement card, number twenty in the major arcana, is all about change. And because major arcana cards are powerful, the change will be powerful, too. But this change is not abrupt or unexpected. It’s a metamorphosis, like the protracted transition of a caterpillar into a butterfly. It’s been long in coming, and it’s based on logic, reason, and preparation.
The figures on the card as shown in the Rider Waite Tarot deck are being freed from death. For you, the coming change will also be a liberation. This card suggests you are now or soon will be embarking on a new stage in your life. The people, ideas, and things of the past may no longer be relevant to you. They cannot hold you back as you move forward toward your true calling and something you’ve long worked for. It’s your fate, and you’re entitled to what the change brings.
However, as the metamorphosis takes place, be aware that well-meaning friends, family members, and associates may try to discourage you and impede your progress. This is because they’re afraid of losing you, or of losing the “you” that they know. Yet like Judgement Day, the forward momentum of this card is inevitable and cannot be stopped. You are being given the opportunity to make an epic decision and take decisive action. Only you can judge when it’s time to move forward, but don’t ignore the forces that are causing this change.
Listen as the Angel Gabriel calls to you with his clarion. Be willing to leave behind past negativity and encumbrances as you begin anew. Make sure you are prepared for the coming metamorphosis. And when you’re ready, let yourself be reborn.
