Justice Tarot Card Meanings:
In the Tarot de Marseille Justice is numbered eight, and Strength eleven, as also explained previously in Strength, with reference to the Order of the Golden Dawn and A E Waite making the switch.
The image usually depicts a figure balancing the scales of justice, in the Gilded Tarot she is blindfolded to emphasise impartiality. Justice weighs the scales with impartiality to find the balance in favour of a ruling that is right and fair to all, she does not take sides but simply balances the facts and evidence to come to the truth. (Some readers associate this card with karma, although personally I relate that to the Judgement card.)
The Justice Tarot card can be literal in representing the law and legal matters around you, so any form of legal documents and contracts would also be relevant. When this card appears in your reading it may suggest that you need to take a clear and logical view to a matter, to be impartial but fair and honest in your dealings.
If reversed or ill-dignified, it may suggest imbalance, unfair dealings, false accusations, or complications with a legal matter.
Justice Tarot Card Combinations:
Justice > Ten of Wands: Weighed down by official rules and regulations and red tape, or bogged down by a legal matter.
Eight of Wands > The Chariot > Justice: on a mundane level, possible speeding ticket, without the Eight it may signify legal documentation connected to a vehicle.
Hierophant > Ten of Swords > Justice: There are various combinations relevant for divorce proceedings/split, (Ten of Cups, for example, instead of Hierophant) but exercise care and read the progression as the order is important.
Justice > Ace of Pentacles > Five of Pentacles: liquidation, filing for bankruptcy, or losing a legal case that may prove costly.
Justice > Judgement: Sometimes literal.
Supports all and any marriage cards (marriage certificate).
