What does the Justice Tarot card mean?

Learn the meaning of the Justice Tarot card in under a minute!

Justice Upright Meaning

The Justice Tarot card has to do with moral sensitivity and that which gives rise to empathy, compassion, and a sense of fairness. Since the time of Solomon, this image has represented a standard for the humane and fair-minded treatment of other beings.

Often including the image of a fulcrum or scale which helps to balance competing needs against the greater good, and a two-edged sword to symbolize the precision needed to make clear judgments, this card reminds us to be careful to attend to important details. It's a mistake to overlook or minimize anything where this card is concerned. The law of karma is represented here -- what goes around comes around.

Justice Reversed Meaning

When the Justice card is reversed, the deeper meaning of this situation is being withheld for reasons only Higher Power truly understands. There are times that logical, common, rational and organic laws are overridden by some paradoxical higher order.

At such times you won't be fully informed about what is going on. Wait, stay quiet, keep watching and listening. Eventually the chaos will resolve itself and the truth will be revealed.

Justice Advice Position

The Justice card advises you to listen carefully as others explain to you their version of events and the parts they played. It is unnecessary to offer feedback. Your role is to observe, listen closely, give a full hearing and keep your wits about you as the story takes shape.

As you witness people's account of themselves, your understanding will go beyond the words you hear. Subtle inferences and clues will reveal the truths that will enable you to make a wise and accurate assessment.

Justice Love Position

The Justice card asks you to distinguish between desire and need. Justice carries the scales and sword of legal probity, but in her heart she is attempting to understand what is behind the conflict so she can meet the needs on both sides.

Justice is not always meted equally across the board, however. Sometimes one side must be treated differently than the other. The fundamental concept behind your forthcoming relationship is the greatest good for the greatest number.

Justice Career Position

When Justice is in this position, you could be facing some sort of judgment. There may be no way to enter a plea or counter motion. Your deeds, thoughts and words are on display. The truth is to be disclosed before all. Compassion is factored in only after full accountability has been determined. Hopefully you have lived up to a high standard and maintained your ethics and ideals. Any attempts to dissemble or skew the issues or arguments are likely to be counted against you.

What strategy to take? Do your best to listen, learn, understand and discipline yourself. Examine your motives, remaining scrupulously objective. Realize that you can get some benefit from this experience.

Justice in a Yes or No Card Reading

Justice is a card of clarity and honor. If you're looking for simple Yes or No guidance and receive Justice, the answer is NO. Wait until all the facts are known before taking action.
