The Justice tarot card is ruled by the zodiac sign of Libra and is the 11th card in the tarot deck. The tarot card features the authoritative female figure of Justice, cloaked in red and seated in a chair, positioned between two pillars. She holds a double-edged sword in one hand, and scales in the other. The Justice card represents fairness, truth, cause and effect, justice and the law, and also symbolises a logical, well-ordered mindset.

Traditional Symbolism

In the upright position, the Justice card traditionally represents fairness, truth, justice and the law, and usually indicates that the fairest decision will be made. In the reverse, unfairness, dishonesty and lack of accountability may be evident. Justice symbolises conscious awareness of the fact that your decisions and actions have long-term consequences. The card also indicates that your actions in the future can be changed by lessons learned in the present.


Justice often refers to legal matters, business contracts, financial arrangements, litigation, marriage and divorce, and reflects the search for truth. If the Justice card appears in a reading, regarding legalities, expect the outcome to be just and fair.


The Justice Card In Your Spread

When Justice appears in your reading spread, the card can indicate a time when decision-making is required. Something in your life may require urgent attention, mediation or a solution. Consider if it is your role to remain as objective as possible, to pass judgment or to accept the decision that is made. If you are the person seeking justice, know that justice will be served and lawsuits won.

If the tarot card is reversed, Justice indicates dishonesty. It represents an unwillingness to understand the deeper meaning of a situation, and that you may be missing an opportunity to gain greater self-awareness. You are also not accepting responsibility for your actions, and are likely to be blaming others for your oversights and mistakes. Over time, you will begin to see the reason why things are the way that they presently are.

Love & Romance

If you are in a love relationship, and questioning the commitment of your partnership, Justice may indicate that you will eventually decide to go your separate ways. If you are single, commitment is heading in your direction. Overall Justice represents the need to be clear about what you want from relationships.


It is time to consider whether or not your work/life balance is presently in harmony. The Justice card highlights the need to achieve balance in all things, in order to thrive. Focus your attention equally.


Fairness, balance, and harmony are necessary in all aspects of your life. Justice indicates that it is time to think about how you treat yourself. Don’t blame yourself unnecessarily if your health habits require moderation or attention.


Justice deals with karma and the law of cause and effect, and where wealth is concerned this indicates the direct result of your actions. If you remain honest and fair you can expect to receive your just rewards.
