The meaning of the Justice Tarot card is ‘fairness.’ Justice can be rather challenging to interpret for love or relationship readings (especially when it appears in a future position), but don’t worry, I’ve got you covered!
Justice General Tarot Meaning
In a Tarot reading, Justice can be a card meaning either human laws, universal laws, or both. Justice, as the name and design suggest, will make an appearance when you go through anything related to the law and legality. You could find yourself at the center of a court case. While this card doesn’t indicate that anything illegal will take place, I wouldn’t want to receive it if I had recently done something wrong.
Justice – My Thoughts
“Personally, I always struggled to interpret the Justice Tarot card meaning. It was my ‘problem’ card. Now that I am a much more experienced reader, I no longer find it hard to read.” – Lisa
Alternatively, Justice doesn’t have to represent anything criminal. You could be preparing to sign documents and contracts, which is a good sign for house purchases, rental agreements, business partnerships, and new jobs, trade, or enterprises. I would just say that you have to be sure to read the small print!
There will be times when Justice appears as unfavorable. In this case, it can mean that you will do something that’s not completely honest or ethical. Eventually, you will be caught out for your actions and have to face the consequences. This is especially not a good sign if Justice is in combination with The Tower!
Alternatively, Justice in a negative position or a lousy spread can be a reminder that life isn’t always fair. The Justice card can still serve as reassurance that the truth will come out in the end, but she makes no guarantees that this day will come any time soon. Eventually, the universe will right these wrongs, but you’ll have to wait for it.
Justice Love Tarot Meaning
Justice can go several ways for a love Tarot reading, but the relationship meanings are fairly straightforward.
Firstly, the card can predict that you will be with someone who’s involved in law in some way. A future lover might be employed as a lawyer or judge. It can also go the other way; they could be imprisoned or engrossed in some illegal activity.
If the above interpretation doesn’t apply to you, Justice is a perfect card for marriages and commitments. However, I should warn you that Justice is also a cold card; you might marry your partner, but this could be more so a marriage of convenience than one of true love. Justice can predict that you will marry for the wrong reasons, and because of this, it is also an omen for divorce.
Justice is also the card of getting what you deserve. If your partner doesn’t treat you the way you should be treated, Justice will intervene. Your relationship will fail, but you’ll more than likely end up with someone else worthy of your time.

Justice in a Career or Business Tarot Reading
If you have many desirable business cards and all looks well, Justice is fantastic for contracts and new connections; it’s a precursor for working with others through collaboration. Justice can signal the growth of your company.
Are you currently on the job hunt? Then Justice is a good sign, as it predicts that you will sign contracts and make things official. Justice is fortunate for people who are in the writing, legal, or property professions.
If your career reading is all doom and gloomy, Justice serves as a warning to take care of the legal parts of your job, especially if you’re in business. Pay more attention to things like taxes; double-check the deadlines for filing your returns. Do some research into the laws in your country. Otherwise, you could find yourself in hot water.
Justice Feelings Tarot Meaning
If you want to know how someone is feeling about you, Justice is not a particularly good card because it’s not a card of feelings and emotions; it is as it is. Therefore, I would say that Justice predicts that the person has neutral feelings toward you. Personally, I have also found that Justice is not a great card for reconciliations. Justice is a sign that your ex is not coming back any time soon because you deserve better.
Justice Future Tarot Meaning
In general, the Justice card speaks of good triumphing over evil. You know what they say – a dog will always have its day. If this meaning applies to you, it could be good or bad depending on if you’ve been behaving yourself or not. If you have nothing to hide or worry about, all will be good for you; expect a good outcome in the end.
Justice will pop up in the future to represent a future court case or legal matters. You will be signing contracts and making things official. It is for this reason that many Tarot readers interpret Justice as a good indicator of a future marriage. While I don’t always read Justice this way, it’s a common meaning assigned to the card for relationship outcomes.
Yes or No with Justice
General – With the Justice card, your answer can be a yay or nay depending on if you feel you deserve what you’re asking about. If it’s something that you can say you’ve genuinely worked for, it will be yours. If not, you’ll have to hustle that little bit harder.
Do they like me? – They will like you if you feel as though you deserve that they should.
Am I pregnant? – No, I would not interpret Justice as a pregnancy or conception card. However, although Tarot is no substitute for medical advice, I do feel that Justice is a positive card for IVF. So, if you’re already on this path, continue down it.
Is this relationship going to last? – The future of this relationship is going to last if this is the relationship that you deserve.
Does the future of this look promising? – The future of this matter looks promising if you feel that you have done everything with good intentions.
Am I going to reconcile with my ex? – I would not interpret Justice as a sign that your lover is coming back.
Justice as a Negative, Weakness, or Obstacle
When Justice appears in a negative, weakness, or obstacle position of a Tarot spread, it means your intentions are not morally just. Your motives are questionable, even if you don’t feel that this is the case.
Justice is telling you that you’re probably the one who’s in the wrong. You are the source of conflict, even if you don’t think you are. Re-adjust yourself; otherwise, you’re not going to get a good outcome in the future.
Justice as a Positive, Strength, or Advantage
When Justice appears in a positive, strength, or advantage position of a Tarot spread, this predicts that your motives are pure. Because you’re morally just and trying to do the right thing, the universe is more likely to reward you.
Justice in this position is a reassuring sign that you should not second-guess yourself. Do not allow other people to gaslight you into thinking you’re in the wrong.
Closing Thoughts on the Justice Tarot Card Meaning
When I was growing up, Justice used to be my ‘problem’ card. In other words, I always found it hard to interpret its meaning! Now-a-days, I find that sticking to the meaning of ‘fairness’ or ‘law’ really helps me to interpret this card.
