JUSTICE TAROT CARD MEANINGS AND DESCRIPTION

The figure of Justice sits in front of a loosely-hung purple veil, signifying compassion, and between two pillars, similar to those in the High Priestess and the Hierophant, which symbolise balance, law and structure.

She holds a sword in her right hand, demonstrating the logical, well-ordered mindset necessary to dispense fair justice. The sword is raised upwards – an expression of a firm and final decision – and is double-edged, signifying that there are always consequences to our actions. The scales are in her left, intuitive hand, showing that logic must be balanced by intuition. The scales are also a symbol of impartiality and that decisions about what’s right and wrong should be made without bias or prejudice. She wears a crown with a small square on it representing well-ordered thoughts, and a red robe with a green mantle. A little white shoe pops out from beneath her clothing as a reminder of the spiritual consequences of your actions.
