There is a “classical” image of a winged angel blowing a trumpet from the sky in the Judgement day. The naked figures of two women and two men have risen from the dead for resurrection. They stay in the water and joyfully stretch their hands to the angel with the hope of transformation for new life.
The Anunnaki (in the Bible, Nephilim or Elohim which translates as “the sons/daughters of the gods”), the members the divine council of gods and goddesses, were in charge of the fate of humans both alive and dead. Their name was derived from the union of heaven (Anu) with the earth (Ki).They were high judges and watchers, “Behold a watcher and a holy one came down from heaven.” (Daniel 4:13). According to the Babylonian mythology, death was a transitionary stage of humans’ transformation from one state of existence to another.
The Judgment card represents Christian ideas of resurrection, redemption, and salvation. More general spiritual concepts include remorse, awakening, and forgiveness. These ideas correlate with the Babylonian understanding of rebirth. Judgment describes a state of transformation or renewal. Awakening to new possibilities, seeing things in a new light, and enjoining new hopes, a person can start seeing things in a new light. As a result she or he knows what to do, and feels a strong impulse to act.
