Put simply, the Justice card represents justice, fairness, truth and the law. As an outcome, the Justice card indicates that the fairest decision will be made. You are being called to account for your actions and be judged accordingly. Notice that Justice’s scales are balanced, thus its appearance indicates that events have worked out as they were meant to work out and that what is happening to you comes from the decisions you have made and the actions you have taken in the past. You have what you deserve.
Justice represents a conscious awareness that your decisions and actions have long-term consequences and your present and future circumstances are most likely a result of these decisions and actions. At the same time, Justice shows that your actions in the future can be changed by a lesson learned in the present situation. You cannot become honest without extending that honesty to yourself and others.
Injustice. Race, Religion, Creed, Creation.
Justice feels like a foreign concept, some sort of strange taste. Bitter, and sour, all at once.
How can I reflect on a card that has always been at the core of my values? You pay the consequences for your actions – what’s fair is fair. But what happens when fair is determined by the nonobjective? The ones with motive, with power?
Can I argue with the Gods the same way I argue against hierarchy?
