A balancing of power is represented by the Justice Card in the Tarot. Another connection with this card is the law of karma.
The main thought behind this card is the principle of “as a man sows, so he shall reap.” The card Justice is considered to be a symbol of balance and harmony of opposites. It has also been related to the judgement after death of Egyptian belief when the soul was weighed in the balance against the feather of Maat, the principle of order and truth.
In astrology, this card is represented by Libra, the symbol of which is a pair of scales. This sign balances the zodiac as Justice represents balance and equality.
Meaning of Justice in a Tarot Reading
As its name suggests, Justice suggests a fair outcome for any situation. This might be a quarrel with a neighbour, or a dispute at work or at college. When this card appears in a spread, the outcome will be honest and just. Care and caution is advised at all times and of course, honesty and openness in all dealings.
Also, to be on the safe side, when responding to questions, think carefully about what is being said. People might be trying to put words into someone else’s mouth. It is also possible that the next eight weeks or eight months will be a good time to sort out finances and try to push legal issues through to their conclusion.
There is a need to find balance in life and this means balancing the official, business-like areas with the need to relax and have fun.
Justice and Partnerships
This is quite a good card to crop up at times when people are entering a partnership or undertaking some kind of joint venture. The reason is that it suggests the querent can proceed with confidence. People they are mixing with can be relied on entirely to keep their word.
Justice Reversed Meaning
Some caution is necessary when the Justice card is reversed in a spread. The querent is perhaps going through a period of suspense as they wait for an important decision. This is a time of test or trial but there is a warning that if they are dealing with legal matters, or with someone in authority, then great care and caution is needed. They should take nothing at face value.
Legal documents may have strings attached. Someone might not be as he or she seems. Carelessness could cause problems which may take time and money to solve. And this means they should tread with care. Look into, and double check all documents and correspondence currently being dealt with and this should help avoid disappointment and delays.
