Justice tarot card meaning and symbolism guide

The justice tarot card meaning is of course doing justice by considering all the factors and making the right decision in the end. There are other meanings reflecting by the symbols of the card, and they are associated with truth, balance, law and morality.  

The woman: in the justice tarot card we see a figure of a woman. She is sitting on a big throne and her eyes are opened widely. She is neither a queen nor princes but she has high status, basically as a person she is like a judge in courthouse. As an ideal or concept the lady is also our inner judgement and morality. 

Crown: the lady in justice tarot card is wearing a golden crown which symbolizes authority. She has plenty of experiences in the legal system, she knows all the rules and the laws. People trust her to make the right ruling according to morality and truth. At the center front of the crown we can detect a red colored gemstone with rectangle frame. This is the third eye, the lady can perceive behind everything and find the real truth.    

Robe: the robe in justice tarot card is in red color which symbolizes passion. It is very loose, indicating that the woman feels very secure and safe in her position. She knows exactly what her part is in the legal system and what she needs to do. Some parts of her robe are in green color which signifies full growth, new beginnings and brighter future.

Shoe: if we take a close look at the lower part of the justice tarot card, we notice a small white shoe. This symbol reminds us that there is always reward or punishment for our deeds. It also a sign that the justice lady knows what she is doing, and her rulings are not only theoretical, but there are implications as well. She also knows where she is going and where she should be at any situation. Nobody can change her mind after the judgement. The white color is a symbol of purity and perfection.  

Two pillars: the two pillars on the justice tarot card are tremendously similar to those in other cards from the deck, like the high priestess, the hierophant, and the moon. In this example they symbolize the will to listen to both sides. For example when people are going to court and each one of them tell the story from his or her point of view. The justice lady is actually neutral, she is sitting at the center and listen equally to both parties.

Pillars constitute strong foundations too. The rules, the virtues and the ethics society should live by. If every person will do whatever they wants and if there will be no consequences to their action than, our community will fall apart, like a ceiling of a house crumbling if there are not supporting poles. This prevents chaos and melt down of humanity.

Veil: a little bit red but more purple hue, her thoughts and knowledge come from a different place, somewhere that the normal person don’t have access to. It usually related to wisdom and spirituality because it gives a sense of mystery. This is something that we can’t grasp easily. But the woman in the justice tarot card can understand it very well. She knows something that we don’t know and therefore we have to trust her. The yellow sky behind the veil is the good energy and guidance from above. If we want to reach it there is a long road to pass.

Sword: one of the main elements featured in the justice tarot card is the sword. This item can be found in many more cards in the deck. This is a typical symbol of making a decision. The purpose of the sharp object is to cut, it is not merely a decoration. There is no time to hesitate an action must be taken.

Sword is also an indication of clearing the situation. First and foremost the metal blade shines and giving the impression of light and positive direction. And seconds it removes all obstacles, passes the unknown and getting straight to the target. There is no way to escape, run or hide from the hand of justice. Moreover the sword is pointing up to the sky, so it promises us to make the right decision according to a higher guide from heaven, usually good spirits, angels and the gods. Very similar to the concept of tree of life that connects the humans on earth to the deity in the sky.   

Scales: the scales in the justice tarot card symbolize balance of energy. If you are going too fast, than you might consider slow things down, so you won’t miss opportunities near you. If you have negative vibration, you should charge yourself with positive energy too. If you had rough events in the past, learn from the hardship for a better future.

They also represent fairness, the idea that justice will be served to anyone. No one will be able to shift the attention, to use tricks and sway it differently. Scales are the zodiac sign of Libra emphases those traits and characteristics.

The justice lady is holding the double-edged sword with her right hand, indicating logic and rational thinking but also going on a battle. With her left hand she is holding the scales, left hand indicates protection and emotion. Together they are in complete equilibrium.

The justice tarot card encourages us to search for the truth. Not in the small details but on a higher level, the ideals and principle of spirituality, forces that are beyond our existence. When we are aware, we can filter all the noises and illusion of the daily life and be open to divine concepts.
