20-Karma – Reversed Salem Deck

Your Chosen Card – Karma Reversed Salem Deck

When reversed, the Judgment card suggests that you may not be heeding the call to wake up and change the direction of your life. If you reject this opportunity to become reanimated, you may end up stagnating and feel stuck in a rut. Perhaps your reluctance is due to fear of change, a sense of regret, or feelings of self-recrimination. Ponder the biblical verse: ‘Except a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it abides alone: but if it dies, it brings forth much fruit’ (John 12:24, King James 2000 Version).

Keywords Reversed: Sentencing, not heeding a call, self-recrimination, worry, regret, delay, shame, remorse, stagnation, isolation, bad karma, condemnation, vengeance, a negative judgment, clinging to old ways, remaining stuck in the past, postponing a matter until it’s too late, an unsatisfactory ending, failure to rise from one’s ashes; an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.

Key XX: Judgment (Aeon)
Myths/Archetypes: The Last Judgment. The Angel of Resurrection. The Avenging Angel. The phoenix rising from its ashes. Persephone being rescued from the underworld. The Tooth Fairy.
Astrology: Fire (Pluto in some modern decks). Both the element Fire and the dwarf planet Pluto are associated with purgation, renewal, and purification.
Numerology: 2 (High Priestess) = 1 + 1 (Justice or Strength) = 2 + 0 (Judgment)

When Karma is reversed you can pretty much take it that life is going well but that’s when life takes us by surprise.  If Karma is unclear it may help to choose a card from the Major Arcana to provide more insight into what it is Karma is trying to tell you.  If you had a particular issue in  mind, or want to seek clarification on something else, you can also choose again to get more guidance.

Book Details
Complete Book of Tarot: If you have reached this point in the book, you should have a sense of the origins and history of the tarot, how it developed as a card game in Renaissance Italy and how it spread to France where eventually it became popularized as a means of divination in the eighteenth century. You should also be familiar with the three most popular categories of tarot decks—the Marseille, Waite-Smith, and Crowley-Harris Thoth tarot—and how they differ from so-called oracle and fortune-telling decks.

Elements of the Psychic World: Theologian, philosopher and palaeontologist whose theories were influential in the development of New Age thought. According to Teilhard the universe has a complex consciousness with its own evolutionary history. Humanity is psychically connected to all life forms and has the power to become co-creator in the evolutionary processes.

Tarot for Beginners: However, reversed, the card can signify a block to independent creativity, or an over-reliance on others. There may be difficulties with an older woman, possibly a mother, aunt, or grandmother. Watch out for clinginess, jealousy, and/or an unhealthy response to money issues, either in yourself or in others.

Angel Encyclopedia: Adam begins his revelation by telling Seth that he and Eve once had the glory of the aeon from which they had come. Eve teaches him a word knowledge of the eternal God, and they are ‘like great eternal angels,’ loftier than God. But upon the fall they become two aeons and their glory returns to a higher level. Their knowledge passes into humanity through Seth. But the knowledge of God leaves them, and their world is dark and full of ‘dead things, like men.’
