The Judgment is a card that shows a number of men, women and children rising from their graves, naked, with outstretched arms, responding to the trumpet call of the Archangel Gabriel , who stands above them.
People are calling out to the angel, ready to be judged by the power of the Universe. In the background, there are high snow-capped mountains , which signify insurmountable obstacles and the impossibility of avoiding judgment.
The ocean represents the end of the river that flows through the Major Arcana, beginning with the Empress. The flag of the Archangel Gabriel is red on a white background, the same as the clothes of the Magician.
Judgement (Reversed) – General meaning
Inverted, the Judgment card fundamentally represents a deep self-esteem conflict.
Your assessment is very poor, you are full of doubts and shyness, your fearful and introverted attitude is the product of a very negative balance that you make with yourself.
You must move on and you know it, but the permanent judgment to which it submits you prevents you from moving forward and reaching possibilities that were there waiting.
You may be punishing yourself (or someone else) for past attitudes and actions. The faults and mistakes committed are not overcome and this prevents you from putting the past behind, settling it, and moving forward.
You must at this moment find time for reflection, for a face to face with yourself and make serene, fair and above all constructive judgments that allow you to get out of the cloud of self-flagellation in which you are.
The Judgment shows that you can be the victim of the judgment of others, more than yours, and you are at the mercy of their comments and opinions, letting them control the rhythm of your life, instead of being the one who does it.
You may be afraid of change, but it is the only viable path. Take charge of yourself, get over the past, indulge yourself and learn from mistakes. That learning is what will open the doors of a new course, the right one this time.
Judgement (Reversed) – In Love Tarot Reading
Regarding love, inverted judgment indicates bad times in love life, there are discussions, but what is more there is confinement and self-absorption.
Trials are hasty and seldom correct. There may be jealousy, but it is due to a lack of valuation and insecurities, rather than based on reality.
If you are alone, it is not the time to start relationships, people may appear but they will be incompatible, with profound differences. Your low self-esteem makes you make mistakes and makes you very insecure.
Whether alone or as a couple, this card indicates calm and prudence. Do not make mistakes by judging hastily, without reasons and arguments. Deep reflection to find answers is what is imposed.
Judgement (Reversed) – In Job or Profession Tarot Reading
At work, it is quite unfavorable. Things are not on your side now. There may be dismissals, negative resolutions, judicial setbacks, although it will depend on other cards to affirm this forcefully.
Gossip and gossip are the order of the day in labor relations. You feel insecure about the opinion of others, but also about your own worth. Doubts about your ability and suitability, if you can handle the challenge.
You must do your part as best you can. If you decide to change jobs, this is actually an encouraging card, it tells you that yes, it is a good option because surely you have already matured and you know that there is something better for you elsewhere.
Judgement (Reversed) – In Money Tarot Reading
It is not a negative card, it only warns you to make correct, well thought out and mature decisions. You may be afraid to spend, invest, or buy, as your insecurity makes you doubt tomorrow. Take risks with measure.
