The Meaning Of Judgement Tarot Card In A Love Reading

Is The Judgement A Good Card To Get In A Question About Your Love Life?

We all want to live our lives with purpose. Many of us spend much of our lives looking for what it is that will give us purpose. Judgement is a tarot card that describes finding and living your purpose. The question is; once you have found your purpose what are you still searching for? One thing that makes life exciting is the search for meaning and especially meaningful experiences. Once you find your purpose some of that exciting energy will quiet down. You are now living your purpose rather than searching for it. It can be a difficult transition. It can be so much easier to search for purpose than to actually live it. In a love reading, the Judgement card can be both a good card and a bad card depending on the level of your maturity. In a love reading, Judgement almost always shows up when the relationship has been close to ending, only to be revived at the last-minute. 

Judgement tarot card in a love reading speaks of the reality of a serious relationship; rather than the excitement of dating and searching. In relationship, Judgement speaks of the danger of breaking up because the couple is not fully appreciating each other. There is a need to rescue and to be rescued; the couple will have their roles either as the carer or the victim. There is grief tied up in this card, and the longing for sharing your life with your partner in heaven rather than on earth. Judgement also signifies that the person loves who their partner used to be rather than who they have become. There is a renewal needed in the relationship. One of the parts needs to be the leader and bring the relationship out of unhealthy patterns. The love is there, it just needs some rekindling.

Learn the traditional meaning of Judgement tarot card here. 

If you are single and looking for love Judgement shows up when you need to renew yourself. Focus on being the person you always wanted to be and stop waiting for someone to rescue you. You might be the one who wants to rescue someone, however, Judgement is a card for being assertive rather than overly caring. Judgement says your path is ready for you and in it is your soul mate. You might have become uncomfortable comfortable and it is time to shake it up a bit. What is it you really want to achieve; and how can you make it more enjoyable and fun?

Judgement asks you to let go of grieving what has been and let it go. Your future is ready for you, and it is a GREAT future if you are willing to accept and take responsibility for your life. What will attract a soul mate into your life are your confidence and leadership abilities, so the worst thing you can do is to hide away.

    just read your summary on the judgement card … it kinds blew me away with its accuracy was as if you had been watching my relationship for a while. my thoughts on judgement have always been different, and nothing i had read matched what was going on. but you got the nail right on its head.

  4. coleridge August 6, 2016 at 8:52 am

    had to re-read what you say about Judgement. Really .. it is uncanny. I have never read or known those characteristics about Judgement before, but after getting this card in a pretty important place in my spread i needed to get more input. I still can’t believe how my relationship manages to get summed up by a total stranger by a card i drew with a meaning i thought i had a grip on! Rescue – Rescued. Unhealthy pattern. Finding a purpose – near to ending … lordy, everything i read seems like it came from observation.
    i just feel the need to write this to you – don’t feel the need to put it to the public – moderate me, maaan haha
    but just wanted to express i will be using you as a massive reference from now on.
    thank you

    Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback!!! I really appreciate it 😀

    What would it mean if Judgement were combined with the World card for an outcome of a relationship that is currently experiencing a separation? I felt that judgment could mean a second chance but with the world not sure if that means it’s over or that there’s another stage to be had. What are your thoughts?
    Thank you!

    Hi, Edith. I feel you could work towards a reconciliation as Judgement denotes. The World is showing you that you have grown a lot and your needs and expectations have changed. That means, this relationship will have to grow and adjust with you, or I feel you will be happier on your own.

    Hi Inger, i just got the judgement card in a 10 card love spread for singles, and the judgement card was in the ‘next steps’ position(which way my love life is turning and by making skillfully choices, i can improve or neutralize) in this case the question on this spread was regarding getting insight on my situation with a love interest. 3 of the last cards i pulled went exactly in this order, The Tower in ‘lesson’ position(something i have to sacrifice for sake of the relationship) next came Judgement in ‘next steps’ and the last card was The Fool in the ‘Potential’ position(long-term possibilities. i was wondering if you can give me insight?

    Hi. The judgement card is showing up when you need to make a good judgement about a person. The tower can mean this can be a hard lesson so be careful. Even though you are asking about a love interest, this is a spiritual lesson and it will open you up to have a deep spiritual connection to yourself and divinity. I feel you will begin a new path in your life.

    Thanks Inger. just last question, lol! I did a three card reading on wednesday, and then in the “Love & me” position i got Queen of cups, in the “situation” position i got The Lovers, and in the “Challenges” position i got King of Cups. i read that 2 big court cards like the queen and king of the same suit means there’s a 3rd party involved? or interference? and what would the lovers mean in this situation?! can you give me insight. Thanks

    King of cups in the challenge position most likely mean there is moodiness and emotional ups and downs that are interfering with this relationships. King of cups can be your best friend or your worst enemy, and can often go from one to the other without much warning. It can mean to be aware of not letting arguments and misunderstandings ruining your connection.

    Hello lnger, I have the tower in past position,two of cups in present and the judgement in future what’s your interpretation on this?

  13. Inger Bråthen September 23, 2017 at 4:57 pm

    Hi. If you are already in a relationship, it can mean you are recovering from a difficult time in your relationship, however, you must watch out not to let fights and conflicts ruin your peace of mind. If you are single, it can mean you will meet someone unexpectedly who will shake things up in your life.

    Hi Inger – what is i recd the judgement card with Hierophant? how does that translate into a love reading? question was about a relationship that ended and we are now starting to speak again…..would love your counsel

  15. Inger Bråthen September 26, 2017 at 10:08 pm

    Hi, Judgement card can mean a resurrection of your relationship. Hermit means you will focus on the friendship part of your relationship.

  16. pooks September 27, 2017 at 12:20 pm

    HI Inger – it was judgement combined with Hierophant…not hermit. pls advise and THANK YOU111
