So I opened up my daily tarot email today to find that my card for the day was ‘judgement’. So, out of curiosity, I pulled out one of my decks and pulled a random three card spread. Surprise:
Two of Swords: A tight reign over emotions, feeling deadlocked or suspended, stalemate, paradox, indecision, feeling overwhelmed by toomany factors, supressed, perfectly balanced
You are on the horns of a dilemma and cannot see clearly which path to choose. You are immobilized by indecision and do not know whether to follow your head or your heart. You may be using all your intellectual defences to avoid facing your feelings about an issue and therefore have a tight reign on them. Reversed means that there is a decision made. paired with the following card it seems to suggest just that. Considering the things I have on my plate, there seems to be no choice in the matter of making a choice, lol.
Judgement: resurrection, a life change, career change, an identity crisis, readjustment, transformation, transition, upheaval
The Judgement card often indicates a time of resurrection and awakening, a time when a phase or period of our life comes to an absolute end, making way for dynamic new beginnings. It requires the acceptance of inevitable change. Often, this heralds violent upheavals or difficult life-changes.
It is important when this card appears to remind yourself not to judge yourself too harshly, and to look ahead to the new paths the coming changes will open up.
The Moon: Intuition, a time to be passive and receptive, strong emotions, psychic awareness, bewilderment, an oceanic feeling, change, mystery, creative potential
This card warns against self-deception and suggests a period of fluctuating moods and uncertainty where one must face unconscious forces. Your gut feelings may be more reliable than your logical mind. You should attend to your dreams, feelings and intuition now, and you notice how ingrained patterns from the past affect you now.
So in affect, this card, being in the ‘future’ position of my reading, indicates that I should be ‘riding the wave’ and sorting things out – reordering as it were – after I make the decisions I must make as suggested by the Judgement card.
Funny, how I instinctively know these things and spend so much time trying to logic them into manageable little boxes. Oh how useful is tarot for smashing those little boxes to bits.
