Interpretation of the card:
Astrological Sign: Virgo/Sagittarius ︱ Planet: Mercury/Jupiter
The scene in the card depicts an inquisition tribunal where a group of judges are judging the fate of an accused woman. The chief judge is pointing at the accused, who is standing in front of him in a hunched posture, while the spectators are silent and seemingly powerless to intervene. This image is evocative of the historical persecution of women, particularly during the Middle Ages, where many were falsely accused of witchcraft and subjected to brutal punishment by the church in order to assert their power and control. The card also highlights the power imbalance between those who sit in judgment and those who are being judged, with the judges seen as the possessors of "truth".
The meaning of the Inquisition Symbolon card
1) As a single or first card︱ The problem
WHAT IS THE SUBJECT?
You have become a hypocrite, who tries to prove his own innocence while being intolerant of the opinions and views of others. You expect others to reject their religion and opinions in favor of yours. You are so convinced of the truth of your own views that you can no longer be swayed. You scrutinize others' faults while ignoring your own. You forget that it is actually your own dark side that you are pointing out with your outstretched finger.
2) As the next card︱Way through the problem
HOW TO DEAL WITH IT?
You will be subjected to rigorous interrogation and possibly even legal action. Fate aims to extract the truth from you and thus employs inquisition methods. The objective here is not necessarily about determining guilt or innocence, although it may appear that way from the outside. Rather, it is a trial that begins like an avalanche due to the pressure of the process. This process propels you forward.
3) as the last card︱Result
WHERE DOES IT LEAD?
At the end of your journey, have faith in your spiritual and religious beliefs. Your previously overbearing perspectives are humbled by a deeper understanding. You have become more accepting of yourself and others, no longer feeling the need to fervently prove your own superiority. Every religious tradition that seeks a connection with God serves the purpose of guiding seekers. Your path is unique to you, and you are the only one who can guide it.
