Artist’s Interpretation & Card Meaning
“Judgement is the card of realization, epiphanies, awakenings, and laying the past to rest. Traditionally, this card is depicted with nude men and women opening their arms to a mighty angel with a trumpet in the sky calling for their judgement. In the background, a wall of crashing waves symbolizes the impossibility of moving forward in life without judgement and absolution.
This card was fairly easy to fit into the nautical theme, as the waves are almost always an element present in the card. But instead of painting actual people, I used bright colors and loose paint strokes rising up from the sea floor to symbolize the sould being called forth for judgment. The angel is peaceful, but strong, providing the final step in moving on from the past.”
Against a blood red sky, waves rise up in answer to the trumpet call of an angel. Within these waves are shadows, souls reaching up, joyfully looking for cosmic, spiritual judgement. This is a means of starting afresh – as with everything in life, what seems like an ending is a new beginning, as those worthy reach a higher plan following their judgement.
This card suggests an epiphany following a vital time of reflection upon your life and actions. That water plays an important role in the card is no coincidence – intuition and logic both play a part in this introspection, and following it, you can come to terms, even be absolved of past sins, and move on refreshed and renewed.
