High arcan Death and high arcan Judgement combination - boomerang effect, Lazarus, this one bounces back into life.
Death tarot card

Card 1 - Death

Here, we see Death riding a beautiful white horse while holding up a black flag with a white pattern. It is portrayed as a living skeleton, the bones being the only part of the human body existing after death. He wears armor, which gives him his invincibility - signaling that no one can destroy Death. The white horse that he rides stands for purity, as Death purifies everyone. Beneath him, all classes of humans lie in the dirt - a king, and a pauper, meant to remind us that death does not differentiate between class, race, gender.

Look to the following cards to see where it leads, in particular, watch for the new beginnings the Aces would bring.

Judgement tarot card

Card 2 - Judgement

This card depicts what one would imagine the last judgment would be, in the various forms that takes in many mythologies. The image in the Judgement card shows women, men, and children who are rising from the grave to respond to Gabriel s trumpet call. Their outstretched arms symbolize that they are ready to be judged by the universe. They are about to meet their creator, their actions weighed, and find out where they will spend the remainder of eternity: in heaven or in hell. The massive tidal wave in the background signify that judgement is unavoidable, and that this judgement will be final. Judgement is ruled by Pluto, who is the underworld s ruler. There are echoes of this card in Death, for they both remind us that everything comes to an end and that a new beginning is coming.

Associations:

Six of Cups (past aspects) Temperance (renewal)

Opposing or contradictory cards:
The Fool (new and unknown) The Aces (new beginnings)

Judgement combinations
Judgement is generally quite easy in combination situations, as before a card is shows a past connection that leads to… or following a card may resurrect it, so either can work. As mentioned above, if any of the opposing cards are paired with Judgement it can amplify something from the past that leads to a new beginning (if it comes before) or a new beginning that resurrects something as a result (when following). For me, Judgement almost always takes you back to something. Aside from this…
