Tarot Card ~ October 13

The Judgement


Fortune Cookie: Know what you want. Don’t be crazy, necessarily, but be willing to try something unusual or out of character to get it.  Reach out for your destiny.

We last saw this card almost five months ago to the day.  And it came up in an important reading last evening. It’s a fine card for taking a look at how we might want to shake things up a bit in some positive ways.  And it’s always a good card to work with and one we would do well to allow to guide us. I certainly need to pay more attention to it!

So.  Then.   Several layers of interpretations here, and all worth a looksee. 

If there’s any inkling in your mind that you might be being

just a tad


it’s tremendously important that you STOP THAT RIGHT NOW ~ don’t be judgemental of anyone else.  And especially don’t be judgemental toward yourself. It’s not useful or even valid to be that way.  Today, and for a while to come, anyway.

That doesn’t mean you should let yourself – or anyone else − run hog wild, going off half-cocked and half baked in every goofy direction that occurs. That’s my niche and I don’t need any more competition.

Nor should you beat yourself up if you really want to just get quiet and do what it takes to stay grounded – or want to just hide and say, “To hell with ALL these freakin’ Bozos!” for today.  Oh. Wait.  That would be kinda judgemental.  So you can do it (hide away), just don’t say it.

It does mean

~ don’t repress your own tendency to wish for what you wish for

~ don’t berate yourself for wanting to be able to upgrade 

 WELL beyond what ordinary reality might provide this week in some area of your life, but 

~ stay grounded for the moment regarding what you actually grab

or grab for 

And send kind energy and blessings of Light to those who do get sucked into any craziness that’s around at the moment. 

Also [and I’m finding this one to be unusually important with my clients lately],

be sure you are pursuing what really is for the highest and best of all

Don’t just do what you’ve always been told you should do in order to be successful, popular, spiritual, thinner, blahdee, blahdee, blahblahblah…



That’s a bit better.  Maybe?  


Different decks portray ~ and different readers interpret ~ The Judgement in exceptionally different ways.  Some say it indicates a change of position, a renewal or reawakening, an ultimate outcome.  Good stuff at any time of  year.

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, finds it portends passing through a gateway to a new existence, an understanding of how one’s actions influence others, good health or a positive legal outcome.

Me? [Thought you’d never ask.]  I tend to see this card as requiring some action. 

When this card appears, I’m likely to say:

Look.  Really.  There are powerful, helpful people who would be happy to work with you, work on your behalf, who might actually be out there looking for you right now.  But they can’t find you where you usually are. 

There are wonderful, transformational experiences waiting for you.  But they can’t happen where you are, in the rhythm of your life as you currently live it. 

You’ve got to

go new places,

meet new people,

do new things! 

And push yourself a bit to keep doing that for the foreseeable future.

So, while staying grounded and aware of what your wishes are − or could be if you really owned what you wish for − entice yourself out of your rut. Shop at different stores, from grocers to clothiers to where you buy your lottery tickets or get your dry cleaning done. Go to different movies at different theaters.  Eat at different restaurants.  Write at different coffee bars.  [Write AT ALL for a change!] 

Don’t let yourself stagnate where you are and have been

Perhaps the most important aspect of this card is that it indicates your destiny is trying to reach out to you and for you.  Will you be there?   If you will, bear in mind the insight of the card as it reminds us to understand the impact of our actions upon others.

Know what you want.  Don’t be crazy, but be willing to try something unusual or out of character to get it.  Reach out for your destiny.

Bright blessings — without even the least little hint of  judgemental! [I mean it!]

    Great poodle skirt and oxford shoes. 🙂

    The quote is the best. How true it is. Seems when something is really, really important to us, we somehow muster up the courage to push through the fear and move towards that which we wish to accomplish.

    Thank you! ~ ~ Blessings, Donna

    P.S. After I commented on your post, I wrote the quote in my daily planner. I noticed the planner had a quote of its own about courage: “With courage you will dare to take risks, have the strength to be compassionate, and the wisdom to be humble. Courage is the foundation of integrity.” — Keshavan Nair

    The word “courage” has at its root the French word for heart — “coeur”. It feels to me like we need to have strong hearts, good hearts so that we CAN take risks, be compassionate, be humble, to have integrity…and to move through our fear. (And ders lots o’ fear out dere dese days!!)

    The times we’re living in call us to be strong of heart — to have courage.

    Thank you for all the food for thought and feul for strength of heart.

    ~ Gratitude, Donna
