Justice Tarot Card Description

The traditional Rider Waite depiction of the Justice card features a figure that is holding a scale in one hand pointing downward and a sword in the other pointing upward. The scale is a symbol of balance and the sword represents upholding the law, even if by means of force. Lady Justice wears a crown, giving her the authority to instill rules and order. The crown represents the spiritual and material world, three battlements and a square stone. Three is a powerful number of the trinity, and the square can represent material possessions of the Earth. The square is also place among the holy third eye, where Lady Justice sees justice. Lady Justice wears red robes and a cloak. In the background are pillars with a cloth hung between them, reminiscent of the High Priestess.

In the Mystic Monday’s Tarot deck, the Justice card is depicted as a feminine hand with painted nails holding a geometric and stylized scale, representing balance held by an unseen force. The scales are a green blue gradient with gold accents against a dark blue background.

This card is written and illustrated by artist and author Grace Duong.

This can also be a sign to properly check all work documents and read contracts carefully to make sure everything is in order with your work engagement. Justice is a good sign if you are wondering if a new contract is going to come through and can open up new work opportunities. Justice can also indicate that hiring a good lawyer can be a lifesaver and that you may need an extra eye to tend to the legal proceedings of your work contracts.

In love, Justice indicates a relationship that is fair, just, and diplomatic. It will be a romantic relationship that is complementary to the traits that each partner has. It can also symbolize an ideal partnership, one that looks good on paper. This can also represent karmic relationships, ones that you’ve signed soul contracts with to learn an important lesson from. While these relationships don’t always last forever, there is a nugget of wisdom that can be gained that will unlock parts of you that were previously hidden. Justice balances its karma by operating on the law of cause and effect, meaning what comes around goes around. When it comes to relationships, be sure to follow the golden rule and treat them how you wish to be treated.

Justice Upright Meaning in Health and Self-Care

Before being birthed into this life, souls sign contracts. It’s time for you to review the contracts that you have with yourself and others. Are you living to your full potential and if not, what is stopping you? Are you feeling that some of your relationships are not as reciprocal as you like? Or some carry more burden than others? It’s time to rewrite the contracts that serve your highest good and ultimate freedom. Do not let perceived obligations get you down. Give yourself the best terms possible and start living by these new terms in this renewed contract of yours.


Justice Tarot Card Reversed Meanings

General Justice Reversed Meaning

Situations, people, or events in your life may feel unfair, and you are seeking to blame anyone who could be held accountable. Injustice is playing her hand, and instead of looking for a scapegoat, take responsibility for the role that you are playing. Karma is a bitch, and your past actions are now catching up with you. Take inventory of your life with complete honesty and see what can be restructured with the utmost integrity. The situation at hand is very black and white, right or wrong, with no shades of gray or room for opinions. Weigh all perspectives objectively and ask yourself what is the root cause. Be honest with yourself. If you feel like you have truly done your best to right this situation, then take the lesson and file it under “lessons learned.”

Justice Reversed Meaning in Career

At your workplace, you could be involved in career situations that are unfair, leading to frustration and hostility in the workplace. You may be engaging in passive aggressive behavior because of how you are being treated at work because of how unjust the situation was. While it’s tempting to go head to head with your boss or colleagues, it’s best to stay low and educate yourself on the rules of this workplace. Are you able to get support if you report the issue? Try to document everything in a legal manner and gather proof for the wrongdoings that have occurred. Alternatively, you may be the one who has been dishonest in the workplace, and your unjust actions are catching up to you. As Justice is all about the law of cause and effect, you will see a fair outcome that matches the effect of your action. Take accountability and learn from your mistakes.

Justice Reversed Meaning in Finances

Take good care when it comes to your finances. With Justice reversed, there could be something that is off in your books that needs double checking. Someone who has access to your finances could be doing you wrong, and could cause a massive financial crisis if you don’t step in and make sure everything is good to go. Likewise, if you are struggling with your finances, Justice reversed means it’s time to take full responsibility for where you are in your financial story. Take a good hard look at your actions when it comes to your finances and make objective decisions that will turn your finances around. If you’ve been dishonest with yourself, it will show in the books. Once you’ve taken full accountability for your actions, you can then recover from the financial crisis you’ve been stuck in.

Justice Reversed Meaning in Love

All is fair in love and war, and the Justice tarot card meaning in love signifies relationships that have unfair power dynamics that can lead to unfavorable outcomes. Even if you carry yourself with integrity and treat people how you’d like to be treated, you may be getting the short end of the stick and may not be getting as much effort and affection as you like. Stop and think about if your displays of affection are genuine or if they are a form of manipulation. People pleasing and fawning can be a trauma response to get the affection of those we long for, but if given with the intention to get something out of someone, the other person will smell it from a mile away and leave with resentment at this subtle form of manipulation. Do it because you want to, not because you’re expecting affection in return for your grand gestures.

Justice Reversed Meaning in Health and Self-Care

Justice reversed in self-care and wellness can indicate that you are not holding up your end of the contract in terms of your soul contract. Since you are not taking the necessary steps to fulfill your purpose in this lifetime, delays can manifest as frustration, depression, or even illness. It’s time to review the soul contract that you have with yourself and see if you can revive the terms. Alternatively, you may find certain relationships draining and it’s time to rewrite the soul contracts that you have with those people. Let yourself be free of unnecessary obligations and guilt.
