Finally, “The Fool” can be assured that he has made it 

successfully through his dark and seemingly unending journey as he begins the transition into his new life. “Judgment” represents an awakening of the body, senses, mind, intellect, spirit, and soul. It is a type of rebirth which brings a new and greater awareness and use of spiritual powers.
