Justice Angelic Tarot Card Meanings

The Astrological correspondence for Justice is Libra, The Scales. Libra strives for harmony and balances opposing influences. Important decisions can be indicated when this card shows up. On a mundane level, Justice addresses legal issues and contracts, as well as any form of partnership (not just romantic liaisons). With this card, there is always a need to bring the mind and heart into alignment. One cannot simply make a decision because it feels right or because it is logical; It has to both be within reason and resonate on a feeling level.

Justice is also concerned with appearances, courtesy, diplomacy and correctness. How things appear on the outside should always be considered when this card shows up. It is not always superficial to consider appearances if we bear in mind the ‘as without, so within’ axiom. As the Libran ruler is Venus, aesthetics take on greater importance and harmony/healing within can be brought about with the use of the Arts, music, colours and sweet scents.

Karmic Issues

Karmic issues can be tied in with this card. You may find that any health issues hark back to past lives, especially together with The Moon, The Wheel of Fortune or Judgment. If that is the case, or you suspect it may be, you can invoke Archangel Michael to help with clearing karma and energetic cords to vows and entities. Of course, for the scales of Justice to be rebalanced, you must sincerely wish to be on the straight and narrow. It doesn’t matter if you know where you went wrong in the past. What matters is that you wish to do right here and now.

As you can see, anything you do to counteract the influence of Justice/Libra will tip the scales (if you pardon the pun), make you feel off-kilter and mess with the homoeostasis of the whole system, so I don’t really recommend any of the above, especially if it also affects others in a negative way. Justice helps us be mindful of our energetic impact on others.

LOVE AND RELATIONSHIPS

Justice is, together with The Hierophant, one of the two marriage and wedding cards in the deck. From an energy perspective, it resonates with the heart chakra and the function of harmonising the feminine and masculine energies.

As you may well have guessed, this is one of the cards in the deck that puts the spotlight firmly on relating, no matter what question you originally asked of the cards.

Justice deals with the communication and harmonising aspects of relating and the legal side of marriage. The Hierophant, on the other hand, deals with wedding rites and traditions.

Because Justice also rules legal matters, it is the divorce card in the deck. Look for the reversal or a pairing up with the reversed 2 of Cups, or the 3 or 10 of Swords.

Wedding Bells

If Justice and The Hierophant show up together in a reading about a relationship, you can pretty much start planning the wedding reception now. Also, if Justice shows up with The Lovers, the Ace, 2 or 3 of Cups, the 4 of Wands or the 10 of Cups, marriage may be in the cards – although…not so quick! It may not be yours! A Page with any of the aforementioned card combos makes it more likely that you will soon receive a wedding invitation.

Doing the Work

Creating fair and balanced relationships always takes work. Depending on the surrounding cards, Justice may bring some really difficult lessons about fairness, harmony and equality. A perfect example of this is the Saturn in Libra (3 of Swords) energies. Justice corresponds to Libra and Saturn in Libra wants us to transcend the ego illusions that limit our ability for harmony and unconditional love in our relating.

In a reading, the combination of The World (or Universe) together with Justice is a mirror image of Saturn in Libra (just like the 3 of Swords). This Major Arcana pairing means the end of a model of communication or system of relating that is dysfunctional and therefore has to end. It doesn’t necessarily mean the end of the relationship though. It all depends on the willingness of both parties to buckle down and do the work. Saturn is a hard taskmaster but his rewards are in proportion to his demands.

Working with Justice Vibrationally

You can use the card vibrationally by creating a tarot essence if you are in a relationship which suffers from imbalance and disharmony. Taking the essence won’t change the behaviour of the other person but it will help you see the energy pattern of the dynamic you have created more clearly, enabling you to adjust your own heart chakra energy to respond in a more loving way.

Single and Balanced

Are you single and looking to become part of a power couple that can have a BIG impact on the world? If so, you can use the essence of Justice to balance your heart chakra energy to dispel the need for a partner to compensate for the male/female energy you happen to be low on. That way you are free to attract someone on equal terms, rather than coming from a place of need. This is the foundation for what some refer to as a Twin Flame union.

Justice as Your Love Interest

If the card is used to describe the qualities of a lover, it tells you of someone who is intelligent, wise, fair, peace-loving and a lover of beauty. On the other hand (reversed or ill-dignified), it could be giving you red flags about someone who is a commitment-phobic, chronic fence-sitter and who will avoid conflict at any cost, not realising that conflict is sometimes necessary in order to push through to the next level of understanding.

Sexually, Justice puts the focus on the act of making love an expression of the beauty of Divine Union on every level, including the physical.
