XX - Judgement

Jesus is resurrected, surrounded by worshippers ready for the Final Judgement. Angels herald his arrival on trumpets. God holds up an orb and book.

My Interpretation: Enlightenment.

An acceptance of oneself and one's achievements in life. Standing ready for divine scrutiny, confident in the knowledge that one has lived a fair and just life. This card indicates an end, and a new beginning.

(Reversed: Inaction, inertia and resistance to change. A hopeless attempt to fight the inevitable)

Edit notes: I've abandoned my original version to be more like the Rider-Waite card. I have kept a common medieval theme, though - the resurrection of Jesus, arising from his stone casket heralded by angels. I'd probably prefer to use the name 'The Last Judgement' in acknowledgment of the medieval theme, rather than the modern short name 'Judgement' although I'm not really that fussed about it.
