With all the misfortune going on in the world I’m posting Strength card today. I offer Strength to those who have survived the terrible earthquake in Nepal – to those dealing with the aftermath of the riots in Baltimore. I hope that everyone will pause for a moment and offer their Strength to any and all who need it today
There a only a few cards I have trouble with. Judgment is one of those cards. When I learned how to read (30 years ago) I associated these two cards with Justice and wondered why there would be two cards with similar meanings.
Over the years I’ve struggled with Judgement in readings (luckily I rarely would encounter it) so I’ve been mediating on the difference between these 2 cards. Justice is the easy one – it offers us Justice with material life. If you were asking about the outcome of a lawsuit and you pulled Justice it would be easy to read, but what if you pulled Judgment? Both are associated with Karma (along with the Wheel of Fortune), but Judgment is more about rebirth and about one’s spiritual life than just the physical aspects of life. So back to the reading about the lawsuit. How would you read it if the Judgement card was pulled instead of the Justice?

I’m hoping to not only share my knowledge of the Tarot but to also learn in the process.
Of course the first card has to be The Fool – Meaning: New beginnings.
With child-like innocence the Fool is on his way,
where his journey will lead, he cannot say.
He is not alone, for his faithful dog is at his side,
and during this journey will be his only guide.
He is Perceval, the Arthurian Knight,
pulled by the quest and drawn to the light.
Charging off in search of a spiritual grail,
he will continue this journey without fail.
Leaving everything he knows behind,
searching for something he may never find.
It does not matter, for he must follow this trail,
For it is the only way to glimpse behind the veil
