11 - Justice Tarot Card

The Justice card is tarot card number 11, although it is the 12th card of the Major Arcana because the 1st of the 22 Major Arcana cards is number 0 (The Fool).

The Justice tarot card is concerned with balance, and justice with ourselves as well as with others.

When the Justice tarot card appears in a spread she ('Justice' is usually depicted as female) may be inviting the sitter to use reason to consider another point of view, or another person's point of view. She may also prompt the sitter to consider if he or she has all the relevant information about the situation under consideration - mistakes can be made when we think we understand something, yet in reality our view is based on incorrect assumptions.

The Justice tarot card also raises the question about possible imbalances and the possibilities of re-balancing them for a more stable future. Take care to observe the position of this card in the spread. Is it referring to the Past, Present, or Future ?
