Morgan Greer Judgment

Morgan Greer Tarot 
Awakenings. Rebirth. Realisations. Fresh starts. Renewal. Heeding a call.

The Judgment card from Morgan Greer Tarot intrigues me with its depiction of the nuclear family, facing us rather than away from us. The man and woman seem to have revisited us from Lovers and Devil, and the kid reminds me of the Sun card. They arise in shadow from a box which appears to be afloat on a yellow sea, and there's no angel in sight. Instead, the man appears to be holding a fiery trumpet in his upraised arms, or maybe it's descending from the cloud of fire in the yellow sky.

The woman has her arms across her chest. This is a traditional posture for being laid to rest, and the X has been associated in medieval and renaissance art with the coming of the Messiah. It is also a symbol of Osiris, an Egyptian god of regeneration or resurrection.

How are you feeling refreshed today? In what way is today a new start for you? If it isn't yet, how could it be? What are you awakening to today? In your life in general? What are you realising? What is calling you? Are you willing to heed that call?

  1. I love your questions today! I had a very refreshing nap this morning, with my Little One finally back at nursery (having puked on Monday and with me dutifully sticking to Camden's 48 hour exclusion policy, even though he was blatantly fine) :D And my bullet journalling feels like a new start, too ;)
