Exploring Tarot Cards: Judgment

Remember the story of the Hare and the Tortoise. Over the years the lesson learned from the story has been changing.

During my school days I thought that of course “the slow and steady wins the race” is the lesson from the story and the Tortoise won the race.

However, in today’s fast paced life, I tend to think that the lesson from the story is “not all races are meant to be won, collaboration is more important”.

Imagine a scenario where the Hare realised that his health would deteriorate if he continued to run and therefore took the required rest.  Just when the Tortoise saw the Hare, instead of continuing with the race, if the Tortoise had stopped and checked on the Hare. And finally, both of them would have won the race together helping each other.

The Judgment card enables us to look at different ways to judge ourselves and the people in our life. It gives us a chance to use empathy in judging others, putting ourselves in other’s shoes and being compassionate. When we feel angry at not getting through the job or scold our children for poor marks, are we taking ourselves too seriously.

The question asked by the card is:

In which area of our life are we too harsh on ourself and others?
