Justice as Intentions 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 Intentions

If you are asking about someone’s intentions towards you, and you draw Justice, that means this person intends on treating you equally to how you have treated them. If you have shown them nothing but love, care, and kindness, you can expect their intentions to match. If you question and doubt them, then you can expect them to not trust you. The person’s intentions will match your intentions towards them. 

Justice as intentions means that there is a good chance that they intend to express lots of love to you. Because Justice is upright and not reversed, it most likely means that you have treated them fairly. They value your actions in the relationship. They intend to return any kindness or acts of love that you have done for them. If you believe you treat your partner with love and respect, then upright Justice is one of the most positive cards for predicting the intentions of your partner.

For singles and those embarking on new relationships, Justice is a sign of them intending to analyze your actions in the relationship. Justice is fundamentally analytical, so they may intend on watching your every move in the relationship. If you put forth your best effort to love them, they intend on returning the love. However, if you have ignored your partner or put less than your best effort into the relationship, you may find yourself receiving the same.

For existing relationships, Justice represents an intention to recollect everything from the relationship and act in a similar way. If more positive events from the relationship exist in your partner’s head than negative, then you can expect to be rewarded and vice versa. The upright Justice explains to us that small acts of love go a long way in your partner’s perception of the existing relationship.

If you are asking about an ex’s intentions, Justice shows that they intend on leaving the ending of the relationship be. They believe the ending was fair, and they do not want to revisit the relationship. They believe their actions were fair and justifiable, even in ending the relationship. They have no intent on rethinking the breakup and reconsidering their decision. 

In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, Justice means that this person’s intentions are to proceed alongside the tone of the relationship. The tone is shaped by how you treat your partner. They intend on engagement if you unconditionally love them and want nothing but the best for the relationship. If you have not been fair to them, they will not feel ready yet.

Reversed Justice as Intentions

If you are asking about someone’s intentions towards you, and you draw Justice reversed, that means this person intends on treating you better or worse than how you are treating them. Balance in the relationship does not exist. It is similar to a scale tipping over. Either they do not put in enough effort and affection, or you don’t. Neither party in this relationship is happy.

Justice reversed as intentions means that they could intend on not taking accountability for their actions. They are unjust in how they navigate the relationship. They do not intend on making you happy as you do. It is the opposite of the upright Justice card. They do not intend on returning any attention that you shower them with. They will expect you to love them no matter how they treat you, which signals unrealistic expectations. They intend to act harshly and not admit that what they did was wrong. 

For singles and those embarking on new relationships, Justice reversed is a sign of them intending to create imbalance in the relationship so that they feel like they have the upper hand. You do not want a relationship with a foundation around imbalance. If you are still interested in them, you should intend on communicating with them and letting them know that acting this way will end the relationship prematurely. They do not intend to show the respect that you show to them. Reversed Justice represents contrast, polarity, discord, and inequality.

For existing relationships, Justice reversed represents an intention to blame you for all of the problems in the relationship. They cannot accept anything as their fault. Instead, they portray you as the cause of everything negative in the relationship. You will feel betrayed and falsely accused. Drawing the reversed Justice card can indicate that the relationship you are in is very toxic, and that you should intend on reconsidering your options.

If you are asking about an ex’s intentions, Justice reversed shows that they intend on holding a grudge against you. Unlike other cards, Justice reversed reveals that your ex remains bitter about the breakup. They do not intend on forgiving you for taking accountability. They believe the heart of the problems stemmed from you. Until your ex takes a more balanced view of the relationship, reconciliation will be difficult.

In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, Justice reversed means that this person’s intentions are to overcome the obstacles in the relationship first before further commitment. They may think the relationship is unfair and biased towards your needs. This may be untrue, but reversed Justice shows that your partner may have many unfair and misguided beliefs about your relationship. Until they can overcome their resentment, engagement will not yet be in the cards.
