Tarot Card for the Day ~ July 15

Justice

Lady of the Lake

This one showed up just a month ago.  And rather frequently before that.  So who’s out of balance here?  Hunh?  Hunh?  Let’s take a look at that now people, shall we?  Hunh? 

Pretty please?

Okay.  So.  For those of you who actually NEED an explanation about a card entitled Justice, let’s just take a little look together.

Most readers would say something to the effect that Justice betokens equity, “rightness,” and justice in the consequences of past actions. [However, as Hamlet noted, “Use every man after his desert, and who should ’scape whipping?  {Fortunately, most of my readers are women.}]

Other readers would say the card portends that a fair decision will be made in your favorOr they might encourage us to remember that justice is intended to foster peace and order, not revenge.

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck I use, writes of the card delivering total honesty, just rewards, equal partnership and coming to agreement, among other things.

When Justice turns up for a client, I usually say something like,

“Regarding the situation, first of all, be sure you treat all justly – including and especially yourself

Work toward a truly equitable solution or situation. 

Don’t discount your needs and hopes, but neither may you let your goals be overbearing, overweening or overwhelming. 

Remember the ancient symbol of Justice is a scale weighing the balance of things. 

So this is one of those cards that counsels:

Do what is necessary to keep yourself in balance,

physically, emotionally, financially, etc.  And seek outcomes that are balanced, harmonious, bringing peace of mind to all.  And be confident such is possible, because it is.

Know what is just, equitable, honorable, hopeful and balanced.  Use that as your guide. Work firmly, calmly, directly but in a balanced way toward that today.

Bright blessings!  

Quote for the day:   Don’t put your trust in revolutions.  They always come around again.  That’s why they’re called revolutions.  People die, and nothing changes.   ~ Terry Pratchett, from Night Watch

Today’s Weather:  Butterbur mcmonagles; intermittent snails.

And on this date: 1799 – The Rosetta Stone is found in the Egyptian village of Rosetta by French Captain Pierre-François Bouchard during Napoleon‘s Egyptian Campaign.  [And I thought it was named after the snarky nun in the next classroom when I was in first grade.]

And don’t forget:  July 15 is St. Swithun’s Day.
