Judgement Tarot Card MeaningJudgement is often described as the card of news. A phone call, a letter. Or a message you finally get from the universe. Judgement is the card of consequences, realization and untying.

Judgement is a very interesting card that always announces something important in the near future. Depending on the spread, this could be hearing back from someone, receiving a long awaited answer or simply payback for your actions.

The effect of the card is quick. You may need to make a decision immediately and it will affect your whole life in the long term. In this case, Judgement urges you to act fast.

This is a highly favourable card, which always strengthens the spread in which it is found for the better. Expect help and sudden changes.
