The justice system and legal matters. Making balanced and well thought out decisions. Balance. Truth. Fairness. The Law. Impartiality. Cause and Effect. Karma. Accountability.
The Justice card represents the many aspects of justice. In a literal sense this can represent anything to do with the legal or justice system, the signing of contracts or having legal documents being drawn up. In a broader concept, this represents what is just and approaching things in a way that is fair and balanced. In the card of Justice we see a woman holding a sword in one hand and a pair of scales in the other. This is the sword of justice and the scales are to weigh two sides of a situation in order to find a balance between the two. The scales don’t lie and in order for things to be just, they must be equally balanced. This could indicate working towards finding a compromise or weighing up different options or choices. The Justice card indicates looking at something impartially and not through emotion or intuition, dealing with facts as you weigh up the pros and cons of a situation.
Reversed or with challenging cards around the Justice card, could be a warning against rushing to a decision without weighing up your options. It could indicate an injustice or in a legal situation that things might not end favourably, that you need to spend more time getting the paperwork you need or that this isn’t the best time to take legal action or to make an informed decision.
