Featured Arcana: Judgment

Judgment crosses sephirots 8 to 10.

It moves us from a sense of willing submission to the absolute completion of a new Reality, built upon what has come before.

It is the essence of being taken forward to some Ultimate Conclusion, without our say in the matter. Still, the sephirot 8 implies a purposeful Action to submit on our part;

it is this purposeful action of Submission (8) that is our say.

Mirror Pictures…

Both Judgement and the Moon lead to the same place (10: a conclusion of cumulative Reality). But they bypass the filter of 9, so they arrive on different sides of the same Reality.

Sometimes we welcome this emotionally, sometimes we fight against it, although it is our Action of Submitting (8) ourselves to another that allows it. The Ultimate Reality awaiting us at 10 is still where we are being taken.

Likewise, 8 to 10 is a mirror reflection of 1 to 3 (The Magician)

The Magician takes the pure inspiration he’s been given and applies deductive reasoning… he amplifies and magnifies this knowledge to where he can reconstruct it and use it for his own purposes.

With Judgment, we hold back, Submit to circumstance and observe Reality unfold on its own.
