Tarot of Inspiration: Judgment
Sometimes we reach a point in the story where we aren't sure which way a character needs to go to reach her destination. Maybe a little divination is in order! Mercy say what??? That’s right! Let the divine guide you when you need a push in the right direction.
This card is an emotive one. The image alone provokes feelings and mental sensations that might give you some insight into your character’s inner motivation. The angel raises his hands in supplication. Releasing himself to the flow of life. Figures dance below him in various poses that represent the trials of the past. This is a card of resurrection. The connection of the divine with the individual. Liberation from the past, and inspiration for the future.
If your character draws this card, she might be in for a wakeup call. The endless cycle of destruction and rebirth are at hand, and the day of reckoning has arrived. The time to face the demons of the past has come. Reveal your character’s inner struggle with things that have happened in the past. Set her in the direction towards resolving these wrongs so that she can be reborn even stronger than before. Make it a lesson learned.
The journey is almost done. Maybe she is realizing the consequences of her actions, maybe its time for her to reach a turning point in the story. This card might call for a pitfall in the plot. The return of someone that was wronged in the past, or even the results of something set in motion earlier in the story. This is the meat between the bread, the drive behind the character, and the manifestation of the motivation behind the plot line. Will she overcome? You decide.
