All about tarot | Major Arcana | Justice

Tarot Major Arcana 11

Overall meaning
Tarot card Justice points out that all actions have consequences, cause and effect. The card is an invitation to look at your current circumstances in that context. So how have your own actions contributed to where you are today? Are there any karmic lessons that you might benefit from reflecting on? The card indicates that justice will always be found in one way or another. So that the balance will always return to its equilibrium.

Justice shows a person sitting on a throne holding an evenly balanced scale and a sword. The figure has a gold crown on its head. She sits between two pillars, which symbolize the eternal opposites. Her gaze is calm. The columns are connected by a red piece of cloth. The woman wears a red garment, the color of Mars and war, and a green cloak on top, the color of Venus and love.

Thus, the balance between opposing forces is symbolized. The justice searches for balance and possibly smoothes out conflicts. It is the card of fairness and impartiality. It shows a situation where everything is weighed against each other to create a compromise everyone can live with. Equilibrium and balance are symbolized by the scales, which also remind us that everything that is initiated or begun must sooner or later be completed.

The sword set held high reminds us that justice can also be expressed through punishment or force. As Athena – the wise goddess of the Greeks – it is time to use the power of the mind and mental abilities to the fullest extent – both in conflicts and as a judge in difficult situations. One must, during conflicts, use deception and diplomacy rather than physical aggressiveness to win an argument or conflict.

First of all, the card symbolizes justice in all its aspects. When you are drawn to this card, it suggests that you need to restore balance, harmony and simplicity in specific areas of your life. It is time to look at balances in your life, as far as health, finances, law etc. are concerned.

It is fundamentally important for you to simplify your life and restore balance where it may be lacking. Justice refers to the fact that you may have a need to weigh things in your life more carefully and thereby find more constructive, balanced solutions to problems and conflicts.

No matter what matters you are dealing with, it will be important for you to use your mental abilities, think balanced, act constructively and be impartial in your decision-making. In this regard, you must be careful not to be unfair and treat people fairly.

Other words that characterize Justice: balance, wisdom, need for rational solutions, understanding, power, judgment, objective judgment, decision, deep understanding, sense of justice and harmony. Agreement by negotiation. An achieved equilibrium. Justice will prevail.

The tarot card is associated with number 11 – which in numerology is often reduced to 2 (the sum of 1+1) which means that you must pay attention to these two numbers in relation to the challenge you are asking the tarot cards about.

The card is associated with the Water signs: Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.

I am centered and in balance. I am in harmony in my daily activities.
