The Major Arcana


Card Theme: Awakening
Element: Fire

The Archangel Gabriel is blowing his trumpet before a group of naked men, women, and children as they rise in glory from their graves with their arms outstretched. There seems to be a feeling of liberation. A new day is has begun.

This card portrays Judgment Day. It’s time to bury the past, now raise and welcome all the possibilities that life has to offer you.

It is supposed to be when the call of a trumpet awakens good souls and finally rewards them. It would help if you didn’t wait till then to experience this life-changing event. Because you are continuously being presented with many different opportunities to transform your life and yourself.

You need to listen for the trumpet, recognize it when you hear it, and let it be your wake-up call.

Suppose you have found yourself recently going through a period of struggle and have felt difficulty. In that case, things are about to change. Decisions need to be made, and you will find yourself feeling freedom from previous mistakes or judgment.

When The Judgment card appears in a reading, it signifies that you will find yourself facing a significant transformation. And you will see a new chapter is about to begin for you.

This will be down to your endurance and hard work, and your love. You need to recognize these times in your life and celebrate them.

The Archangel Gabriel is your protector and your guardian angel. When he is around you, you do not have to fear. Gabriel can cut through any illusions, and this allows us to be able to see things.

The Judgement card advises you to look at your situation and see what opportunities are available to you. So you can transform yourself into the person you are destined to be.

Maybe you have spent time trying to improve yourself and your life, but perhaps you are being asked to make one more change, one that will result in great things.

Ironically, this might be a small change or alteration in your life. But often, it is the minor changes that can give us the most significant results.

All you need to do is be able to recognize the calling and then act upon it. You could very well be opening an entirely new chapter in your life by being able to follow this inner calling.

If you feel that you are being judged, maybe now is the time to confront someone. It may be a simple misunderstanding that you can put right. Or are you the one that is being judgmental?. If this is so then, you need to be aware that we do not always know another person’s circumstances, even if we think we do. The saying, “You don’t always know what goes on behind closed doors.” rings true.

If you are carrying guilt over something or someone, then now is the time to let it go; you must find a way to release it. A new phase is about to start, but it can not begin until you deal with whatever is holding you back.

Move forward and remember what is done is done. It’s time to move on and leave the past where it belongs in the past.

The judgment card is not here to judge you but to set you free. You must realize that any decisions that you made in the past, and now regret, were the right ones at that time. If it turned out that things didn’t go as you planned, just let it go now.

The judgment card suggests that you are ready for a fresh new start, prepared to remove the barriers that have kept you bound and to seek the attainment for your highest good. The Judgement card represents a breakthrough, so work out what is holding you back and start making a change happen.
