For an introduction to the 78 days of tarot project, please click here.

Visual Card Description:  An upright mummy is being supported by a priest from behind.  On all sides are hieroglyphs.  Above them there is the winged sundisk.*

Free Association:  Reckoning, Reflection, New Life, Personal Trials, Beginning of a Journey, Transformation

Rider-Waite/Traditional Associations:  Judgment can be a card about jumping to conclusions, decisions and judgments. which are too hastily made. If you are prone to such things, this is a clear signal to slow down and give things more thought and to give people "more chances." This can be a real time of spiritual awakening. 

In general, if you are the one tending to jump to conclusions, you can put a stop to it. If others are making these kinds of decisions about you or about someone you care for, there is really very little you can do, apart from realizing that it’s their problem, not yours.

Meaning from the lwb (little white book that came with this deck):  Change of position, moral renewal, birth, awakening, examination of one’s conscience.  Moment of transition towards an improvement, recovery both of physical and intellectual energies.  Here it is represented by the process of mummification, fundamental requirement for the spiritual rebirth of dead.

My interpretation:  This is the time one must prepare for a reckoning.  Each detail should be checked, and one must be prepared.  When one cannot do it for themselves, others will be there to help.  This is the time to shed your old skin and be ready for a new beginning.  The outcome depends on how you’ve behaved prior to this moment.
