The Justice Tarot Card

Justice sits on a throne between two stone pillars. Her long red robes represent the color of passion and she also wears a golden cloak. Her golden crown has just one light blue gem in the center, the color of peace and clearness. Behind her is the entrance to the temple. It is protected by a purple cloth, the color of wisdom. She holds high a double-edged sword in her right hand as if to show victory. In the left, there is a set of perfectly balanced scales.

The square jewel in her crown is matched with a square jewel clasping her cloak. The alignment of the jewels points to a mind of balance and equilibrium. She is impartial and shows great reason. At the same time, the one white shoe that just shows from under her robe is a gentle reminder of purity. The foundation of justice is that we are innocent until proven guilty.

When looking at all of the major arcana cards, Justice is one of the most neutral. It implies that you get what you deserve. These conclusions have come about because of the facts, not necessarily because of karma.

If you feel that injustice has been caused against you, this card could be a sign that you will soon see justice. You shouldn’t hope for anything extra when you receive Justice and should be satisfied with things being restored to how they were.

This card could signify absolution of some form. If others have been criticizing your due diligence, or you have been working hard without recognition, Justice might be telling you that your efforts haven’t been wasted and that you will soon get the credit for your hard labor.

Justice is a strong indicator that deceptive people will be shown in their true light. Liars and cheats will soon be discovered and there will be no light consequences for their actions.

When Reversed:

Rather than the contrary, Justice reversed is a clear sign of real justice, but that justice served might not be clear and structured. This would indicate that you may just justice, but there will be a price to pay, and you not be keen to pay this price. Justice requires sacrifice, so you might end up losing a relationship or social standing. If you decide to go after justice, the path may not be easy.

Upturned, Justice might be telling you that you will have to wait. Justice will come, even if it isn’t how you imagined. For example, you may know that you are right about something, but those around you need more convincing.


You made a choice in the past, either right or wrong, that is having an impact on your life today. More often than not, Justice in the past will point to a significant past decision.


You have to handle decisions on a daily basis but right now, you are facing a big one could not only change your life but also the lives of those around you. Think carefully about the path you are about to take.


There will be a big decision you need to make. It could be related to your career or your relationships. Take time over your decision. If you are waiting for an outcome, it would be wise to start damage control now.

Yes/No Answer:

If the question is a moral one, the answer will be yes. If not, it will be no.
