Ruling Planet: Venus
Number 11, The Justice card.
The Justice card represents truth and fairness. Here we see a Pixie holding up scales with the rune of Algiz in the center, which symbolizes aligning with our divine paths. The open curtains in the background show us that now is the time for everything to be revealed.
Everything has a consequence - good or bad. Our actions, no matter how big or small, will always be judged. The Justice card in a reading tells us that judgement will be made fairly and accordingly, which may or may not play in your favour.
If you have hurt someone in the past, this card can serve as a warning. Prevent a negative outcome by trying to right what you've done wrong. Now is your chance to make a change and create a better future.
If you have been wronged, you may feel a sense of relief viewing this card. Take solace in the fact that whatever/whoever has wronged you will soon be judged.
Alternatively, this card can also remind us of our own judgments. How to we look at those around us? Do we often make snap judgments? Is there truth in what we say/think? Before we assume something or take a certain side, try to find the truth behind the matter first.
Imbalance, Lack of accountability, Injustice, Unfair treatment, Dishonesty
Card in Reverse:
In reverse, the Justice card can tell us that you may be running from your guilt. You may not be able to accept the consequences of your actions. Perhaps there is something that happened in the past that you ultimately know was wrong, and you're afraid of being held accountable for them.
Just remember that whatever it was is now in the past. All that matters is what actions we take now. How can you return balance to the scales? What can you do now that will make up for the wrong of the past?
Take this as a sign that now is your chance to make a change for the better. Every single person on this planet has made mistakes, and we will get no-where if we try to run from them.

Upright: If you have been putting in the work, you will soon be rewarded. All the love and kindness you've been putting out there, you will be receiving! Justice is about balance and karma. If you put it out into the universe, it will return to you.
If you've been single, your positive and loving energy will be attracting a new love interest.
If you are partnered, take a look at how you've been treating your partner. If you've been feeling any sort of resentment, ask yourself if any of your negative thoughts have any truth to them. What other perspectives are there? Try communicating with your partner to restore balance.
Reversed: If you feel like you've been putting a lot of work into your relationship - platonic or romantic - but you feel as if things aren't going the way you had hoped, maybe take a look at your expectations. Are you being realistic? Are your intentions good? If we're doing something only to benefit ourselves, we often get met with a negative outcome.
Be fair with your actions and judgments, and be honest with how you're feeling. In order to truly receive love, we must put out genuine love. If this has been difficult for you, there may be some underlying issues you need to work out.
Upright: In the workplace, if you have been kind, truthful and fair with your actions and decisions, expect everything to be working in your favour! If you haven't been acting this way, the Justice card can serve as a warning and reminder that it is important to act with fairness and integrity. Take responsibility for your actions and live honestly. If you don't, Justice will come for you.
Reversed: The Justice card in reverse tells us that maybe you are going through some unfair situations right now at work. Things may not be tilting in your favour right now. It might be tempting to fight it, but the Justice card is telling you to continue on being fair and honest in your work. You will soon reap the benefits and the ones that have been unfair shall be met with their bad karma.
Sometimes this card can also tell us that perhaps you have not been fair or honest when it comes to work. When someone lives their life telling lies, eventually the truth catches up to them. You could be met with a lot of trouble in the future. If you still can, take action now to try and reverse any wrong-doing. Own up to mistakes, come clean with anything you may be holding on to. Whatever it is, act now and save yourself from whatever may be waiting in the shadows for you.
