Justice is ruled by the zodiac sign Libra and is associated with element Air. The card depicts the personification of Justice sitting on a chair wearing a red cloak and holding a sword in her right hand and scales in her left hand. She wears a crown with a small square structure that represents a methodical mind and orderly thoughts.

These are the essentials in executing justice in a fair manner. There is a clasp that holds the cloak which is a square that has a circle within it. The circle represents the eternal state of oneness that a human mind should attain, while the square is the law that promises to protect. The double faced sword can cut both ways and signifies impartiality. The sword is pointed up that depicts victory.

The scales on the left hand, the intuitive hand, say that logic should be backed up by gut feelings. A portion of a white shoe peeping from under the cloak acts as a reminder that everyone should be ready to face the spiritual consequences of any action. The purple cloth in the background signifies compassion while the grey pillars represent the constraints
of the material world.

Upright Position

Justice says that the right thing should always be done even if it not the most desirable thing. For the subject, it means that a past act of injustice may be corrected. This may also indicate winning a legal matter. It also suggests that the seeker should try to attain peace, harmony and integrity and clear all debts and other obligations.

Reversed Position

Reversed, the Justice card represents inequality, injustice and unfairness. It may also suggest unfair or cynical criticism and intolerance. For the seeker it implies that she/he is being unable to see a situation from an objective or impartial point of view. It may also bring upon legal troubles or false accusations.
