Judgement: Predictive Tarot Card Meaning

In Tarot readings, Judgement's main meaning is that it is a card which predicts results. When it pops up in your reading, Judgment predicts you are about to get an outcome in any situation, be it career, love, or relationships. If you're uncertain about your future, you will soon get the answers which you are desperately seeking. 

The Judgement Tarot Card

The Judgement Tarot Card

Significant life-changing events are often about to take place when Judgment comes out in a reading. In a way, Judgment is the card of transition from one state to another. Relationships can go from dating to marriage or from dating to endings. Jobs can go to promotions or annex. Judgment marks the time when all of the efforts you have put in will result in one thing or another whether that is for better or worst.

Sometimes Judgment can signal a life-changing opportunity. Decisions around this opportunity will need to be made swiftly because there will be a time limit. The choices you make during this period will affect the rest of your life and should not be taken lightly. However, too much waiting around weighing up the pros an cons can result in loss.

Other times, Judgment represents the realization of a calling and the force of destiny. You should not ignore that burning inside of you to realize your dreams; you only have one life to live so better make it count.

While Judgement is not a negative Tarot card, situations which surround it will be painful for you at the time. While you achieve your destiny with Judgement, many people will enter and leave your life. Although this may be very difficult for you, all will work out in your best interest. 

Judgment Love & Relationship Tarot Meaning

Judgment is generally neutral for love readings. It can be a sign that the relationship is meant to be and is part of a bigger plan. Whether that means that you're soulmates or you're supposed to learn lessons from this union depends entirely on the other cards.

Judgment in an outcome position means that something will happen in the future, which will impact your relationship forever. That's not to say that anything bad will come of it; it just means that situations will come about which will make or break of your partnership. When this happens, you have to make decisions yourself because the cards can't advise you a course of action at this time. 

Personally, I feel that Judgement is a reassuring card if you want an ex-lover to return. Judgment is telling you that if it is meant to be, they will return. Therefore, if you have reason to believe your ex is 'the one' a reconciliation will happen in the future. However, if they prove not to be the love of your life, someone greater is out there for you; this person is holding you back. 

If you're asking your Tarot cards if someone has feelings for you Judgement can be a bit of a pain in the ass. Judgment is one of those cards (like The High Priestess and Justice) which doesn't like to reveal another person's motives; you have to figure them out for yourself. All will be disclosed in its own time. 

Judgment Business & Career Tarot Meaning

The Judgement card will appear in business, and career orientated Tarot readings if what you're doing professionally is your calling. I believe that, although we have free will, there are some things which are in our greatest interest, so the universe comes together to make it happen (our destiny). This card in a spread shows that the universe, God, and the spirits favor your new direction so will do all they can to assist you.

Judgment can also predict a time in your career when everything will snap into place for you. Your psychological blocks will be lifted, and you will find innovative ways of solving any issues your company has. Strange coincidences and events will happen: you'll get signs from the other side, which will help you with business and career matters. Expect divine assistance in making your dreams a reality.

Judgement Friends, Family & Social Media Tarot Meaning

Judgment will appear in readings about family and friends when you're going through a difficult time. Judgment represents you learning who has your back and who doesn't.

You are about to discover who is on your wavelength. Anyone who is will remain in your life, and anyone who is not will disappear. While this will be hard for you, the universe has to open space for all of the fabulous, high vibration people who are coming into your life.

Fallouts with old friends and make up with new friends will also happen on your various social media platforms, so remain vigilant of this. There is also the possibility that you will grow a social media platform to massive proportions or start a new career in this sector.

Judgement Health & Wellbeing Tarot Meaning

In a health or healing Tarot reading, Judgement predicts that you will soon get results. Judgment does not guarantee that you will get a good or an adverse outcome, but it does mean that you will know for sure in the short-term future.

Judgment wants to you not make any rash decisions until you know all of the facts. However, once you are confident of the truth, do not kid yourself. See everything for the way it is, not how you want it to be.

In any event, whatever goes on with your health this time is life-changing. You will see life in a completely different way once you get to the end of this current tunnel.

Judgement Psychic & Spirituality Tarot Meaning

Judgement Tarot card meaning

When it appears in a psychic development or spiritual Tarot card reading, Judgement means that your spirituality is about to increase tenfolds. Judgment is one of the most potent Tarot cards you can receive for a reading on your psychic abilities.

If it appears in the past, Judgement can mean that you have an increased sensitivity due to a childhood near-death experience. You are a natural psychopomp who is in touch with this world and the next.

In Tarot and Astrology, the Judgement card corresponds with the planet, Pluto. Pluto is the planet of life-changing opportunities, transformation, and metamorphosis. Pluto is also Hades' planet - the God of the underworld.

Judgment predicts that your spirituality will be different and unconventional. You will be drawn to (and particularly talented in) anything dark and mysterious. Think midnight magic by the crossroads, candle-lit séances, and ritual sacrifice.

Judgment as a Positive, Strength or Advantage

When it appears in a positive, strength or advantage Tarot spread position, Judgment is the reassurance that what you're trying to achieve is within your destiny. The universe and the spirits around you are going to keeping pushing and clearing paths so that you can glide towards your birthright.

Judgment as a Negative, Weakness or Obstacle

When it appears in a negative, weakness or obstacle Tarot spread position, Judgment can be a sign that what you're aiming for is not meant to be. If this is the case, the universe will work against you, and the outcome will fall out of your control.

Judgment as a Yes or No

Judgment is a neutral card for most types of Tarot readings but can sway more towards a yes if the other cards in your spread look promising. If you're performing a reading on a fundamental, life-changing matter, then Judgement is a, "Yes, but move quickly!"
