THE JUDGMENT TAROT- WHAT DOES IT SYMBOLIZE
The image on this card shows a man, a woman and a child emerging from their respective graves to answer Gabriel’s trumpet, who hovers over sky way above them. They are in the nude, stretching out their arms, symbolizing eagerness to get judged by the power of Universe. The man, the woman, and the child are looking upwards, at the heavens. It’s as if they are appealing to the almighty to weigh them, evaluate their actions and pass a judgment – where they are going to spend the rest of eternity, in heaven or hell. In the far background is a massive mountain range, symbolizing obstacles that everyone counters before reaching where they are right now. The blue tide around the graves is a testimony to the fact that the judgment is inevitable. It will be final and inarguable. The banner around Gabriel’s trumpet is similar to the Magician. The Judgement Tarot underlines the universal fact – everything that starts comes to an end, and everything that ends eventually leads to a new beginning. Nothing in this world is permanent, and the cycle of life keeps on going. The planetary body associated with this card is Pluto, ruler of perdition and the dark underworld.
