As today is Easter and a glorious Spring day, the themes of resurrection, rebirth, and awakening come to mind. Forsythia and magnolias are popping out. Many versions of the 20th Major Arcana card, Judgement, depict what today is about. Modern tarotists have renamed this card and their ideas reflect my feeling that it’s a good card for this day/season. “Resurrection” from the Tarot of the Spirit is the most obvious one. “Awakening” from the Shining Tribe deck is another obvious image. And “Awakening” from the Gaian Tarot shows these themes beautifully. In these cards, people are rising from one state into another, experiencing a spiritual rite of passage, celebrating the best self that they are becoming, responding consciously to their greater calling. I plan to keep these cards on my altar for a few days to really take in these images and concepts.
Which card(s) speaks to YOU of resurrection, rebirth, following your calling, and awakening?
Happy Easter and Happy Spring!
