Description

A woman in a rich purple gown stands between two pillars (though only one is clearly visible). She is wearing a blindfold. In one hand, she holds a sword, in the other, a heart. She extends the hand with the heart as if to offer it to the onlookers.

In the background, you can see the floating iamge of a Latin law text and parts of the word "Justice".

Symbolism

Pillars: To pass through the gates that separate day and night, you have to pass Justice guarding the threshold.

Blindfold: Rules never on the base of appearance and cannot be fooled by illusions.

Heart: Stands for the moral responsibility and conscience that keeps Justice from being merciless and also for the ability to see the core of the matter, regardless of outward appearance.

Sword: The sword symbolizes both ratio and the power to separate good from evil, reality from illusions, positive from negative - in an impartial and controlled way. The sword points upward to symbolize guidance from above.

Judicial text: Justice acts upon a codex which must be public to prevent corruption and arbitrariness.

Purple gown: Corresponds to the crown chakra to emphasize the peak of spiritual development. Red background: As in the RWS, red stands for taking action that will have an impact in the material world.

Card Meaning

Quote::"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye." -Antoine de Saint-Exupéry-

Divinatory meaning:

  • Just outcome, fair battle, weighed decisions, responsibility for the outcome of one's actions, an ethical navigation system ("leading star"), settling legal matters, taking courageous risks for a higher cause
  • Shadow: Self-righteousness, justice without mercy, corruption, indecisiveness or shying away from what should be done, turning your eyes from injustice, using unfair means

Artistic Media

Digital photo, scanned background graphics and some filters in Paint Shop Pro. Model for Justitia: Myself, in one of my renaissance reenactment gowns.

Artist's Bio

Morwenna was born in South Germany in 1967 as a Gemini with Sagittarius rising and a fierce Scorpio moon. She is a market research consultant and an author for metaphysical books. Two books on faerie encounters and lore were published in Germany.

She started studying the Tarot in her late teens, which was back in the Eighties. Her deck collection has grown to 800 since buying Ferguson's Tarot of the Witches in 1987.

During the summer months, she can be found roaming renaissance fairs all over Germany and occasionally selling her symbolic jewellery and shrines.
