How To Get Woke With The Judgement Card

The Smith-Waite Centennial Tarot Deck, US Games Systems, 2009

The Smith-Waite Centennial Tarot – US Games – 2009

 

A couple of weeks ago I saw a hilarious but cringe-worthy exchange on Twitter between filmmaker Michael Moore and writer Jessica Hellis. Funny because Moore suggested, in the tweet, that women don’t do heinous things. Cringe-worthy because of the irony. The pedestal on which Moore places women is a feature of patriarchy, the very thing he is against. No one wants to be called out or corrected as he was on Twitter that day. And yet that’s just what happens when we pull the Judgment card. The universe calls us out, checks our assumptions,  and puts our flawed thinking on the spot.

The first thing I noticed was that the card would repeat, usually as the final card in the session. No matter how short the spread was, even though I always used two different decks,  and no matter how unlikely it was. If you’ve had a session with me in the last year, you’ve probably seen me freak out about this. I’m shocked every time and it never gets old! These surprises gave more relevance and context to sessions. Continue reading

Fast & Feast: When You Dance With The Devil

It might be during an otherwise perfectly safe reading. The cards show that you do your best. They tell a story with options and hint at future possibilities, but at a pivotal point in the reading, you (or your tarot reader) pulls The Devil. And it’s in a really suggestive position too, like: “your greatest current struggle.” In the best case, you haven’t seen this card before, and you get to learn a little something new.

But in the less favorable and more likely case, Continue reading
