Week at a Glance: Judgement

The purpose of drawing a "Week at a Glance" card is to get a sense of the sort of energy, circumstances, or personal qualities I might need to be aware of during the upcoming week.

I seem to have missed my usual “Listen to the Animals” entry, so I decided to use an animal deck for Week at a Glance this week! My choice is The Animism Tarot by Joanna Cheung (Rainbow Crazy). To read my review of this deck, click HERE.

My card for the week is JUDGEMENT (XX).

The Animism Tarot by Joanna Cheung

Well, a cat is appropriate for any week, given that my home has four feline residents. Here we have a Siamese cat perched atop a pedestal, regarding us with clear, knowing blue eyes. In the background a brilliant sun blazes forth, forming a glowing halo around the cat’s upper body.

Unlike the “Judgement Day/Resurrection” images that appear on Rider-Waite style decks, this image has a much more solitary, inwardly directed vibe. The cat seems to gaze into the mind, heart, and soul of the person looking at the card – very much a one-on-one experience. And I get the sense that if I gaze back directly into this cat’s eyes, I will see my own mind, heart, and soul reflected.

This week I have an opportunity to explore my inner thoughts, virtues, and transgressions – not so that I can pass some sort of “final judgement” but so that I can assess the ways I might go about healing, releasing, or changing. The keywords provided by Joanna Cheung can serve as a guide: “protection, fortune, freedom, observance, wisdom, healing.”


  1. What gorgeous card for judgement. I like the emphasis on the fact that we have to judge ourselves rather then to be judged by someone/thing else
    We carry our own guilt regret pride and fulfillment etc. So it is up to us how we evaluate our life and to consider the next step

  2. Zanna, thank you so much for this. I have three Feline Daughters: Isis, the Alpha Female (a Burmese); Kore the Calico; and Durga the Kitten. I love them, and they certainly keep me on my toes!

    Interestingly enough, given we are in the DarkMoon tides (the next New Moon is on Thursday, January 30, 2014), I have been looking deep within and engaging in a lot of journal work, as well as focusing on themes of "Protection, Fortune and Wisdom," too.

    As always, Zanna, thank you so much for all you do.

    1. Good to hear from you, tarotman. I am so pleased that this card resonates with you. Your cats sound delightful -- Burmese and Calico are two of my favorites in the cat world.


Thank you for leaving a comment. I love hearing from my readers!
