Balance, truth, impartiality, integrity
“I decided to paint Justice as an Octopus woman. I know Justice uses the number 8 or 11 and since an Octopus has eight legs I thought it would be fitting. I used a Narwhal horn for her sword which she holds on her right, and shells for her scale (which are balanced) which she holds on her left. I used the seaweed as pillars. I wanted to keep this card as natural as possible.
The Justice card deals with Karma, balance, fairness, and justice. I know sometimes she is depicted blindfolded, again I wanted something more natural, so she is not blindfolded, but her eyes are white…trying to show blindness in a more natural way to represent fairness.”
A sea goddess bears a Narwhal horn in one hand and shell scales in the other. She is flanked by two pillars of kelp rising to the surface. The feeling of this card is balance. The blade is held in her right hand – logic is at work, and the scales in her left show an even counter-balance of emotion. Both are at play here. She is sightless – she cannot judge on appearances, only by determining the truth. The scales are evenly balanced, the future will be determined by the decisions you have made, and the fairest outcome will prevail.
This card advises that everything happens for a reason, and that each action has a consequence. These may not be immediately apparent, but you should tust that they will.
