Tarot card for the Day ~ February 11

Justice

Lady of the Lake

Fortune Cookie: 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.

 

I’m tempted to begin with Richard Pryor’s famous quote, “You go down there looking for Justice; that’s what you find: just us.” 

Or Lenny Bruce’s, “In the halls of justice, the only justice is in the halls.”   But that would be too depressing a start, even for me.

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

Many 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 clients don’t own whips.  I’ve asked.

Other readers would say the card portends that a fair decision will be made in your favor Or they might encourage us to remember that justice is intended to foster peace and order, not revenge. [Not an easy concept to keep in front of us these days.]

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.  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 and balanced blessings!

    I always love when this card shows up. It helps me relax, and relaxation is a good thing these days. It just makes sense…to seek what is just, to stay in balance, to stay calm, and so on.

    A FINE sign! (Full of life!)

    And, boy, could I use a cat-door. Tabby is in and out, in and out…I can sense when he’s at the front door and wants to come in, which is good in this cold weather. 🙂

    ~ ~ Blessings, Donna
