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 wears a blindfold to emphasise her impartial perspective. Justice weighs the scales without bias 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, so any legal matters or associated documents would also be relevant. When this card appears in your reading it may suggest that you need to weigh things up with a balanced mind; take a rational and logical view to the matter in question in order to be impartial but fair in your dealings.
If reversed or ill-dignified, it may suggest imbalance, unfair dealings, false accusations, or complications with a legal matter.
