Justice as Reconciliation 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 Reconciliation

If you are asking about how someone feels about reconciling with you, and you draw the Justice card, it means that your ex is considering it from a logical perspective. They are considering it, but they need to know that it truly makes sense for them. Your ex is very level-headed and analytical. They’re definitely the type of person to listen to their head and not their heart. But, this isn’t a bad thing. This also means that their feelings for you weren’t formed just out of your passionate chemistry, but also out of the way you treated them. Justice is all about receiving what you give, and in this case, if you’ve been dishing out lots of kindness, love, and positivity, then your ex will realize your relationship was good for them. This goes both ways though, not just positive, if you mistreated your ex, they’ve definitely noticed and will take note of it, and not want to reconcile with you.

When your ex thinks about reconciliation with you, they are analyzing all options. They know that you’re a good person and that everything you’ve done was in good faith, and they are definitely taking this into consideration in their calculations. But, again, if you’ve previously treated them coldly, they will definitely remember. Reconciliation highly depends on how you acted during your time together, but, since your ex is very analytical, chances are that they wouldn’t want to reconcile.

If you’ve recently split up, then it means that your ex feels content with how your relationship ended. They believe that the relationship ended when it should have and that everything was fairly handled. They’ve calculated every outcome in their heads, and a break up was the best route to take. This doesn’t mean they resent you though. 

If you’ve been in separation for a while, your ex still reminisces about your relationship. They learned a lot during your time together but your time together is over now. They still stand by their decision that the relationship ended fairly and that this was the best choice to make. It’s time to move on. There were some good shared memories, but ultimately, you would be better off with other people.

If the two of you are still considering whether or not you should break up, reflect on how you’ve treated them in the past. If they’ve recently been acting more unfriendly and cold with you, then it’s probably because you’ve done the same to them, whether it was knowingly or unknowingly. Your partner is worth fighting for as they’re like a mirror. They reflect the actions you show them so if you want your relationship to work out, then it will start with you. Your partner recognizes your value and will always do their best to match your energy. Justice is here to remind you that love is a verb — look into your actions.

Reversed Justice as Reconciliation

If you are asking about how someone feels about reconciling with you, and you draw Justice reversed, it indicates that your ex feels like your relationship was unbalanced and they are not interested in reconciling at this time. This can manifest itself in many ways — maybe one of you was more giving than the other or maybe one of you was exerting more effort. Instead of a healthy give-and-take relationship, one was always giving and the other was always taking. Your ex vividly remembers this, which turns them off from wanting to get back together.

Justice reversed can also mean that your ex refuses to take responsibility for their actions, and a reconciliation would not work out for the two of you in the long term. When something goes wrong, your ex would rather shift the blame onto you or others than admit that they did something wrong. They refuse to admit they’re wrong and avoid being self-critical. If this rings true, then there isn’t much you can do about it. No amount of arguing or debating will make them admit their mistakes. 

When your person thinks about reconciliation with you, they feel bitter. Till the bitter end, they were unwilling to step up to the plate and admit their mistakes. They refuse to take accountability in their role of ending the relationship, instead, they are convincing themselves that it was your fault entirely — “It’s not me, it’s you.”

If you’ve recently split up, they feel critical about things that you did. They are nitpicking at everything you have ever done wrong. They still hold a grudge against you, and they aren’t acknowledging what they did wrong on their end. Reconciliation is possible, but only if they can overcome these feelings of imbalance and judgment. 

If you’ve been in separation for a while, then it’s time to keep looking forward. Similarly, too much time has passed and it’s obvious that they cannot overcome the imbalance. Nothing you can say or do will make them change their mind. And maybe that’s for the better. You deserve someone who doesn’t make you feel small. You deserve someone who can admit when they’re in the wrong. 

If the two of you are still considering whether or not you should break up, then there are probably some pretty high hurdles that you’re facing right now. Your person feels like your relationship feels imbalanced and this can manifest in different ways. If you’ve been disagreeing a lot, fighting, or ignoring each other then this is a sign that you both need to bare your hearts to each other, speak up about what you feel, and admit your mistakes.
