Tarot Card for the Day ~ June 26

June 25, 2009

The Judgement


This card showed up on the 20th of last month.  And on the 19th of the month before that.  As it’s becoming a regular, I’ll reaffirm: it’s always a good card to work with and one we would do well to allow to guide us.

So.  Then.   If there’s any inkling in your mind that you might be being just a tad judgemental,

 [like when I have thought, jeeeeeze-a-lee, those clowns actually thought they really were the Masters of the Universe, with their Bentleys and homes in Cap d’Antibes and the belief that they were SO smart, but they managed to literally bring our economy down around their greedy, conniving, wretchful little overtanned, Thanksgiving-turkey-skin-colored, botoxed little selves, those mother… uh, um…  um de dum…] 

it’s tremendously important that you STOP THAT RIGHT NOW ~ don’t be judgemental of anyone else [Aw, buggrit!]   And especially don’t be judgemental toward yourself.  [Thanks.  I feel so much better.]  It’s not useful or even valid to be that way.  Today, 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.  Like some people did.  Like most of Iceland did.  Like those clowns with their Bentleys and homes in Cap d’Antibes and…   Oops.

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 Bozos!” for today.  Oh. Wait.  That would be kinda judgemental.  So you can do it (hide away), just don’t say it (these Bozos).

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 today.  Also, be sure you are pursuing what really is for the highest and best of all.  Don’t just run your greedy butt all over everyone else and their hopes and their pensions, you greedy mother …  Oops.


Different decks portray ~ and different readers interpret ~ The Judgement in exceptionally different ways.

Me?  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. 

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 are, I hope YOU won’t be a greedy, preening, self-aggrandizing little mother…  [Aw friggit!  Do as I say.  Not as I do.]

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)!
