Judgement from the Morbidly Adorable Tarot


Art: Judgement from the Morbidly Adorable Tarot by Artist Misty Benson
Judgement features the Egyptian jackal-headed God, Anubis. It is a card about judgement of one’s self or self-reflection. It could also herald a rebirth or a need for forgiveness.

In Egyptian lore, Anubis weighs the heart of the dead against the Feather of Truth. If the heart is light from leading a good life, the owner continues to the Afterlife. If the heart is weighed down by bad deeds, it will be heavier than the feather. It is then fed to Ammit, a crocodile/lion/hippo entity. (My Ammit is a little more cheetah than lion!)

In this Morbidly Adorable scene, the little Worry Wart Bears are trying to weigh down the feather to keep Ammit from eating the heart. I admit, frightening as it is to have a little soul-eater around, I kind of want a little Ammit of my own!
