When pulled upright this card is about reflecting and evaluating ourselves and our actions. Self reflection allows us to have a clearer and objective understanding about who we are now and what we need to do in order to grow. When you see this card it is telling you that you are getting close to a point in your life where you need to start reflecting and evaluating yourself. This card can also show that you are in a period of awakening due to self reflection. You have a clearer idea of what things need to change in order for you to continue growing. These changes could be small things in your daily routine to huge changes, like removing people from your life. This card tells us we have decisions to make that will hugely affect the rest of your life.
When pulled in reverse this card is about doubting and judging yourself too harshly. This doubt and judgement can be causing you to miss out on opportunities. All of this is causing you to fall behind on your plans which is making it difficult to move forward. You need to stop with caution but rather do things with pride and confidence. This card can also mean you need to take time out of your schedule to sit and reflect on your life so far and figure out what you’ve learned. You’re so busy you probably haven’t given yourself the time needed to fully learn lessons that are essential for you to progress as a person. You may also be holding on to mistakes you’ve made in the past, rather than forgiving yourself making it hard to move forward.
Here is a tarot spread that focuses on the judgement card. It is great for starting new beginnings. First I would take the judgement card out and meditate while focusing on what the next stage of your life might be. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.
Card 1: This represents the earth, from which the new sprout of you emerges; it is the nourishment you need to grow and change. It can represent spiritual riches, or past experience, or the life you leave behind.
Card 2: This is the call, the trumpet that summons, the sun you are growing towards. This represents your inner voice, the demands of the soul, or the parts of you that seek change.
Card 3: This is the little sprout of you, how you will grow and adapt, the new you. It is also what renews you.
