Key message: Major decisions in your past may have affected your entire life. Meet the challenge of past choices with integrity, acceptance and hope. If the outcomes aren’t as you’d wished, take steps now to alter the future. 

The Judgement card reminds us that the major decisions we’ve made about relationships, employment, property, finances etc. can change the course of our lives irrevocably. There are choices in life that once made allow no turning back. If there are choices in your past you wish you hadn’t made, now is the time to accept what is, let go of regret and move forward with new plans that can put you back on course.

Write Your Future

You see, the Judgement card shines a light on the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of past decisions. Choices may be irrevocable, but while you cant change the past you can change the future. Your choices now are paramount. Learn from your past and actively plan out how you want your future to proceed and take positive steps to write it so.

The Judgement card may also refer to an incident where you or someone in your life needs to explain their past actions. If you feel you’ve done something wrong best to fess up or apologise. By taking responsibility, as long as it is safe to do so, you are showing yourself to be a reasonable person who genuinely wishes to do better. On the contrary, if you seek to hide or lie about any wrong doing you can do yourself a genuine disservice. A loss of trust from those around you may ensue and prove difficult to overcome.

On the flipside, if you have been wronged, the Judgement card is nudging you to challenge the wrongdoer or speak up about how you would like to be treated. Of course, once again there’s a caveat: speak up only if you are safe to do so. Sadly there are those around us who take any mention of their own wrongdoing as an attack and will attack back viciously in return. If you’ve stumbled upon one of these impossible people, trust the universe to pass its own Judgement and allow yourself to move on quietly and peacefully. You may not get the last word, but the inner peace and pride that comes with such dignity is worth far more. You may also save yourself a helluva lot of stress as the above mentioned personality types generally love a good confrontation and can take an unfair fight to all sorts of extremes.

Potential Action

The Judgement card is calling you to rise above every day squabbles. Look for peaceful resolutions to conflict and question what it truly means to win. Some people seek to win an argument at the expense of their reputations and relationships. The ‘win at all costs motto’ is well out of date. Imagine someone who would yell over you, lie or argue irrationally to feel a sense of power or cause their opponent to submit. How likeable is that person looking to you right now? Perhaps not very. Well meaning people can send their loved ones packing if they don’t learn to curb a desire to be always be right or to ‘win’ by force. Remember that EQ trumps over time, so arm yourself with more knowledge: emotional intelligence can be learned.

The Judgement card can also point to a crossroad. Perhaps you have struggled with a choice between two options you know will lead in different directions. Now might be the time to make a firm decision. Back yourself and back which ever decision you decide to take. Your past lessons can help you gain clarity on the right direction and once you’ve decided, give 100% commitment to your new course.

Growth Potential

Some good news stemming from the Judgement card is that you may have reached a stage of life where you have learned from your past and can now move on, free of its constraints. You see, an unresolved past seems to grab hold of us, weighing us down and preventing us from progressing to where we want to go. Resolution however can be yours, let go of guilt, sadness and ill feeling toward others as these are unhelpful travel companions.

If you need help letting go of the past find others who have had similar experiences. Their empathy and validation may be all you need to accept what was and embrace what can be. A little self evaluation never hurts either. Of course if life’s struggles have left you depressed or in an emotional place you can’t easily step out of it’s perfectly ok to seek medical support. The onus is on passing through the troubling times with as much ease and assistance as possible to reach better times once more.
