Justice as a Person Tarot Card Meaning Sibyl Tarot

Justice is the card of fairness, truth, and law. Justice sits in her chair, holding balanced scales in one hand and a sword in the other. She symbolizes impartiality and karmic comeuppance. With her scales, Justice weighs in on the truth of a situation, ensuring equal balance. With her sword, Justice delivers consequences for those who have done injustice to others. 

Justice is a reminder that what you sow will also be what you reap. Though we may get away with unjust acts in the moment, we will not be able to run from the hand of justice forever. Although you may face difficult moments in life, know that by doing the right thing, you will be rewarded in the long run. Leaning into the spirit of justice helps us practice positivity and kindness. 

Upright Justice as a Person

If Justice appears in a Tarot spread as a person, that means that this person has an innate sense of justice. They’ve always been concerned with seeing that everybody is treated equally. It is astrologically associated with Libra. Because Libra is a masculine sign, this card carries an active, assertive energy. We all have a little bit of both energies expressed in a balanced way, regardless of which gender we identify as. Because this is a Major Arcana card, some of these defining traits make up a major part of their identity. So, for example, a sense of justice will play a major role in who they are, or how they view themselves. Note that they may not reveal this side to you at the beginning stages of your relationship, to others, or ever.

For physical characteristics, Justice as a person represents someone who enjoys balance and symmetry. Because the Justice card is astrologically associated with Libra, one of the signs that represents beauty and carries Venusian energy, this person will really enjoy beautifying themselves. It genuinely makes them happy to go through the process of putting an outfit or a look together. This is a person who enjoys beauty for the sake of beauty. Not only do they beautify themselves, they usually beautify their living spaces, and they are at their most happy and productive when they are surrounded by beauty. They can be very gifted in interior design. They have a natural sense of style. 

For emotional characteristics, Justice as a person represents someone who is well-balanced, and their sense of justice plays a massive role in everything they do and every decision they make. For example, this might be the type of person who has to be sure that every little household product that they buy was ethically sourced. It would kill them if they knew that a farmer, a factory worker, or the original inventor were not fairly compensated or credited for their work. While they believe in fighting for justice, they dislike conflict. They prefer to deal with disagreements through diplomacy and dialogue. Moreover, they are usually good at seeing both sides of a situation. Rather than having extreme emotions, they are quite calm.

For careers, Justice can represent someone who works as a mediator, facilitating balance for society. They may literally be part of the justice system in some capacity, or they could be an advocate for a cause. They could work at a non-profit. Or perhaps, their profession revolves around rebalancing the scales numerically. There’s also a chance that this may represent somebody who works in the beauty, fashion, or design industries. This person will either create beauty, or they will capitalize on their natural beauty. They could be a model, an influencer, or a very artistic content creator with a very distinctive aesthetic. Because this is the Justice card, they may use their platform to shed light on a cause or social justice issue that they’re passionate about. 

Justice as a person represents someone who makes you feel like you have a friend whose opinion you can actually trust. This person is usually very kind, gentle, and soft spoken. However, they don’t sugarcoat anything. They’re going to give you tough love when needed. This is the one person that you can trust to give an impartial opinion or advice. If you’re in the wrong they will let you know about it, but they will let you know with compassion, and this person will usually have a realistic and well thought out solution to whatever problem you have. They rarely dominate the conversation because they understand that it’s important to understand the other side’s point of view, making them excellent listeners.

Reversed Justice as a Person

If Justice reversed appears in a Tarot spread as a person, that means that this person might be a karmic presence in your life. We all meet karmic souls, as friends, family members, romantic partners, colleagues at some point of our lives. We are meant to learn a life lesson through our relationship and experiences with them. However, it’s up to you to understand that this person is perhaps a bad influence. If they shaped your beliefs through the teachings imparted to you in your formative years, perhaps they were a bad role model for relationships. You will need to unlearn what this person inadvertently taught you. Because this is a Major Arcana card, some of these traits will be inherent aspects of their identity. Good or bad, nobody is perfect and people can change, if they choose to.

For physical characteristics, Justice reversed as a person represents someone who may use their physical beauty or attractiveness in an unjust way. For example, they may exploit their beauty in an industry where one’s appearance should be irrelevant. This person may even resort to inappropriate behavior despite workplace regulations. For example, they may exploit their sexuality to further their career. They may also be dismissive about the ethics of certain beauty or fashion products. If they do work in an industry where physical appearance does matter, aesthetics will be the only thing that they care about. For example, this person might design or create something because it’s trendy or a guarantee to make sales, but never create any art that comes from the heart. 

For emotional characteristics, Justice reversed as a person represents someone who rarely cares about doing the right thing. They only care about what is best for themselves. Their sense of justice may be a little off. They may lack empathy, or simply not know how to read the room. This is the type of person who will complain about something they take for granted, in front of another person who has nothing at all. They may also have very shallow views of people’s physical appearances, or put too much value in aesthetics.

For careers, Justice reversed can represent someone who thrives in imbalances at the workplace. For example, if they’re a lawyer, they’re the “ambulance chaser” type. If they are in the justice system, they may benefit from a corrupt system. This is somebody who would normally benefit from the lack of inclusiveness of existing beauty standards. However, instead of supporting more inclusive beauty standards, they’re okay with this status quo. In fact, they would prefer to maintain the status quo as it benefits themselves rather than facilitates fairness for their less privileged peers. Alternatively, they may be prone to performative activism if they believe that being seen as supportive of certain causes will help their brand. This person may also engage in causes or even work full-time at a non-profit just because they think it’s “a good look” on them, not because helping others brings emotional satisfaction.

Justice reversed as a person represents someone who makes you feel out of balance or unfairly judged. This person might barge into your life and just leave you feeling ungrounded and uncensored. You may feel like you’re being treated unfairly. If they’re an authority figure in your life, you may feel like they’re playing favorites, or they’re treating you in some unjust way. If you are involved with this person romantically, they may have very low moral standards. So, for example, they might find a twisted justification to be unfaithful, and somehow end up blaming you for it. They can be quite crafty with their words, finding loopholes, and “lawyering” their way out of situations.
