Justice is number 11 in the tarot card deck and is closely associated with the zodiac sign Libra. When Justice appears in a reading, people instantly think that there will be some cause for concern or legal problems in the horizon.
While this can be a possibility, you should know that Justice is also about decision making like the Fool, assuming responsibility, doing the right thing, and accepting consequences.
You can see Justice sitting on her chair, wearing a red cloak and holding the scales of justice in her left hand, and a double edged sword pointing upwards in her right hand, symbolizing impartiality and victory.
A square clasp holds Justice’s cloak together, which symbolizes the law that protects the circle. Her white shoe peeps from underneath her robe, representing that there are consequences for every action. The cloth draped behind her represents kindness, while the pillars represent the constraints in this world.
The Justice tarot focuses on the law of cause and effect, and how karma works in a general and spiritual sense. Everyone and everything are connected, and all the things that you are dealing with now are the result of your actions.
Whatever you put out there in the universe, you will earn a tenfold. Justice calls forth the need for some sense of balance, harmony, and fairness. Conduct your personal and professional affairs fairly and with integrity.
Treat yourself and those around with you with the same level of respect and virtue, and you will find that the universe will find a way to turn almost everything in your favor.
The focus of Justice is for you to reach your goals, settle disputes on matters related to law, money, investments, or health, and understand the laws of cause and effect and how destiny can figure in your life and relationships.
It often signifies legal matters of all kinds: lawsuits, contracts, marriage, divorce, financial or business arrangements, litigation, and how you should be prepared to deal with such eventualities. Know that justice will prevail one way or another.
Justice Tarot and Love
When Justice turns up with reference to love and relationships, it indicates needs being met and justice being served to errant lovers.
If you feel like there’s more to your man’s being extra attentive to his smartphone, or his evasive answers, or his reluctance to post your holiday photos on Facebook, Justice will help you uncover everything that you need to uncover and help you come to a decision.
Same goes for you, if you haven’t exactly been Miss Goody Two Shoes. You know what they say about karma being a bitch? Oh honey, pray that you won’t ever have to find out.
If you want to know if you and your honey can make the test of time and stay together, most likely not. Especially with the amount of deceit and philandering going on.
If you’re a good girl, Justice will reward you with all the good things that you can only see in rom coms, and so much more. Kindness, faithfulness, and respect are rewarded.
You may not see or feel it now, but you will soon. If you’re looking for love, Justice will give you the man that you deserve.
Justice Tarot and Money
When Justice appears in the context of finance or money, it is a good sign of money coming in, accounts being settled, problems being resolved, and loans being paid. It can mean new business leads or new opportunities to make money. It can also indicate charity work or an act of compassion.
It can also signify lawsuits or litigations. You will feel the dent in your wallet and wonder where you’re going to get your next dollar.
But the world has a way of creating opportunities that will blow your mind. Change will come, like what it signifies in the Wheel of Fortune, but you have to wait for this particular cycle in your life to complete.
Justice Tarot’s Meaning for the Future
Justice in the future position indicates that all the things you are working for now are guiding you to a future where you have to make some really big decisions. As much as you want things to remain where they are, they are all temporary. Justice wants you to know that you have to prepare yourself for change.
My Final Thoughts on Justice Tarot
Focus your attention on the present. Be in the moment. Take responsibility for your actions, thoughts, and decisions.
Always do the right thing and always be fair. Know that there are consequences for every action.
You may not see it happening today, but it will certainly happen to you sometime in the future. Whether you’ll be excited for it or whether you’ll be dreading it, that’s entirely up to you.
The Justice card symbolizes a time of decision-making, like the Hermit tarot card. Something that requires attention, intervention, or resolution in your life. Look closely which cards are lying next to Justice to have an idea what you’re up against.
Search for answers and try to remain objective. Don’t be too quick to pass judgment. What is your gut telling you, and does it go against your conscience?
Don’t let emotions overrule you. No matter how much you want to share your thoughts and rant about them on social media, don’t. No matter how much you want to declare an all-out war against somebody, don’t.
No matter how much you want to run away from your debts and hide out in a mountain village somewhere in Asia, don’t. No matter how much you want to run someone over or throw someone off a cliff, don’t.
They only look half bad on TV, but never in real life. Plus the fact that you can never run away from karma. You can never hide from the clutches of justice.
Like that trippy 90’s song goes, ‘You only get what you give’. Justice plays no favorites. She is fair and demanding. So do what you can now to forgive the sins of the past and change the course of your future.
You have the power to change tomorrow today. Ask yourself this: Do you want to spend your life looking over your shoulder and wondering if someone is out to get you? Do you want to sleep peacefully and not be woken up by bad dreams?
