Tiny Tarot Wisdom for Spoonies: Judgment

In Tiny Tarot Wisdom for Spoonies, I’ll be going through every card individually and sharing mini insights we as disabled and neurodivergent (ND) witches can take from it.

Sometimes called “Awakening” or “Rebirth” depending on the deck you’re using, Judgment asks us to look back on how far we’ve come and open our hearts to the insight we’ve gained along the way. Insight could come from a huge or obvious source, like a helpful doctor or therapist giving us new tools to navigate the world or reduce troubling symptoms. But it can come from unexpected sources, too. The fibromyalgia discord server I’m in has not only helped me better understand and manage my fibro, but it has also helped me navigate my sensory processing challenges. Wouldn’t have expected that from a chronic pain group, but here we are! 

Look back over your life as a spoonie. What insights have you gained from your experiences? Note that I am NOT saying you have to be grateful if that doesn’t feel right for you. I am not thankful to have developed endometriosis and fibromyalgia. But I can be proud of the ways that my conditions have made me a more compassionate person, towards others and myself. I have learned to give myself so much more grace than I did before my disabilities. That’s an insight that I can be grateful for, even if I wish the process of learning had been a bit less painful.
