The Judgement card represents the Last Judgement.
The Angel sounds the trumpets of judgment and the bodies resurrect, ready to be judged. The dead will be brought before the throne, and the books containing what they have done in their lives will be opened: they will be judged based on what they did when they were alive.
The bodies are naked, because naked we are born, and naked we will return before God, for our second birth.
The Judgement card represents a time of change, although continuing on from what we have done so far. Therefore it will not be an unexpected or a radical change. Instead, it will be a change that we have deserved thanks to our actions and our work to date.
The past is the past, there is no point raking over it again, but it seems that this is the moment when the chickens come home to roost, and in which we will have to face the reality of the situation.
As the dead rise from their graves, this card marks the beginning of a new era. Perhaps we have been very unlucky in the past? Well, at last, the Angel of Judgement could bring some justice into our lives, and mark the beginning of a lasting phase of good fortune.
The situation is drawing to a conclusion. This may scare us, which is normal. Even problematic circumstances – such as a work environment where it is not easy to work because of people who put obstacles in the way – can become situations where the mere thought of change frightens us. We have almost “poisoned” ourselves with a certain situation for so long that we think we would feel a bit lost if it were to change.
We are at the end of the line. If we have acted properly, we are likely to obtain justice.
