Meaning of Justice from the Tarot Genoves Tarot Deck Deck

Upright

Equilibrium, Balance, Justice;

Reversed

Bigotry, Want of Balance, Abuse of Justice, Over-severity, Inequality, Bias.

According to Many Schools of Thought

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

Fortitude. This is one of the cardinal virtues, of which I shall speak later. The female figure is usually represented as closing the mouth of a lion. In the earlier form which is printed by Court de Gebelin, she is obviously opening it. The first alternative is better symbolically, but either is an instance of strength in its conventional understanding, and conveys the idea of mastery. It has been said that the figure represents organic force, moral force and the principle of all force.

S. L. MacGregor Mathers's Divinatory Meanings
