What This Card Means to Me

Whether or not you believe in an afterlife, throughout our mortal existence we face judgement for our actions everyday. It is up to others if they forgive us, and really that’s not our problem, but it is up to us if we forgive ourselves. Justice will determine whether or not amendments or retributions are required. Here is where we try again. It’s a cleansing where the past needs to be set aside, but not forgotten. How we begin anew will require clarity and foresight if we wish to avoid repeating our mistakes.
