Justice is the Tarot card of law. In a reading Justice will be a card meaning either human laws, universal laws or both. Justice can be rather challenging to interpret for love, and relationships readings, but don't worry, I've got you cover!
Justice, as the name and design suggests, will make an appearance when you will go though anything related to the law and legality. You could find yourself at the center of a court case. While this card doesn’t indicate that anything illegal will take place, I wouldn’t want to receive it if I had recently did something wrong.
Alternatively, Justice doesn’t have to represent anything criminal. You could be preparing to sign documents and contracts which are good sign posters for house purchases, renting, business partnerships, new jobs, trade or enterprises. I would say that you have to be sure to read the small print!
In general, the Justice card speaks of good triumphing over evil. You know what they say? A dog will always get it’s day. If this meaning applies, it could be good or bad for you depending on if you have been behaving yourself or not. If you have nothing to hide or worry about all will be good for you; expect a good outcome in the end.
There will be times when Justice appears as a negative. In this case, it can mean that you will do something which is not completely honest or ethical. Eventually, you will be caught out for your actions and have to face the consequences.
Alternatively, Justice in a negative position or in a bad spread can be a reminder that life isn’t always fair. The Justice card can still serve as reassurance that the truth will come out in the end, but she makes no guarantees that this day will come any time soon. Eventually the universe will right these wrongs, but you’ll have to wait for it.
Justice’s Historical Meaning
Like many of the other Major Arcana cards, The Justice card’s meaning has remained unchanged for hundreds of years. Justice has always been a card which stands for justice and balance.
Justice in a Love Reading
Justice can go several ways for a love Tarot reading and the meanings are pretty much straight forward.
Firstly, the card can predict that you will be with someone who is involved in the law in some way. They might be employed as a lawyer or judge. Obviously, they can also go the other way; they could be imprisoned or engrossed in some type of illegal activity.
If the above interpretation doesn’t apply to you then Justice is a very good card for marriages and commitments. However, I should warn you that Justice is also a cold card; you might marry your partner but this will be more so a marriage of convenience than one of true love. Justice can predict that you will marry for the wrong reasons and, because of this, it is also an omen for divorce.
Alternatively, Justice is the card of getting what you deserve. If your partner doesn’t treat you the way you should be treated then Justice will intervene. Your relationship will fail but you’ll more than likely end up with someone else who is worthy of your time.
If you’re wanting to know what someone is feeling about you, then Justice is not a particularly good card because its not a card of feelings and emotions; it is as it is. Therefore, I would say that Justice predicts that the person has neutral feelings towards you.
Justice in a Business Reading
In a business Tarot reading, Justice can be positive or not depending on the question and the general feel of the reading.
If you have many desirable business cards and all looks well then Justice is fantastic for contracts and new connections; it is a precursor for working with others through collaborations. Justice can signal the growth of your company.
If your reading is all doom and gloomy then Justice serves as a warning to take care of the legal parts of your business. Pay more attention to things like taxes; double check the deadlines for filing your returns. Do some research on the laws in your country otherwise, you could find yourself in hot water.
Justice as a Yes or No
Justice is a funny card when it comes to a yes or no; your question can be a yay or nay depending on if you feel you deserve what you’re asking about.
Justice in a Positive Reading
In a positive reading, Justice can predict;
- You will get what you deserve for the better
- Positive legal outcome
- Good contracts and commitments made
Justice in a Negative Reading
In a more negative reading or spread position, Justice can predict;
- You will get what you deserve for the worst
- Negative legal outcome
- Bad contracts and commitments made
