Upright Justice Tarot Card General Meaning 

Let’s start with the general meaning of the card. Generally, the Justice Tarot card is related to cause and effect, karmic justice, and legal matters. This card shows you that your actions will have consequences.

Consider your current circumstances and think about how your actions have led you to where you are today. Are there any karmic lessons you should be learning? This reflection can be hard but will allow you to learn from your actions and move forward in life. 

The card also suggests legal matters will be resolved fairly and balanced on both sides. The Justice Tarot card is a good omen to see if you are in a legal dispute, as it is a card associated with integrity and truth.

You will find yourself compelled to speak truthfully and you will value integrity and honesty in others. 

The card also suggests some situations could throw you off balance. These situations might not be beyond your control, or of your own making. No matter how they arise, you need to keep yourself balanced and even as the events unfold. 

The Justice card suggests you have a choice to make. You will be weighing up your options and balancing the scales, making sure you consider all of your options carefully before making a decision. 

Now that we have looked at the general meaning of the Justice Tarot card, let’s move on to see what else the card can mean! 


Health-wise, the Justice card suggests you are out of balance. This lack of balance is contributing to any health issues you are having. The card also acts as a warning against overindulging.

Try to keep everything in moderation to live a healthy life.

Love And Relationships

Whether the card is a good or bad omen for those in relationships depends on your and your partner’s behavior. If both of you are acting with integrity and being honest in your relationship, then you will see the rewards of this! You can expect big commitments, like marriage, or a period of harmony. 

However, if one of you has been dishonest or cheated, the Justice card suggests the truth will be revealed. Whoever has been acting dishonestly will reap what they have sown. It’s time to think about your actions if you have not acted honestly! 

If you are single, the Justice Tarot card suggests a relationship with someone in the legal industry.

This could be a lawyer, legal secretary, or judge! This card corresponds to Libra, so a Libra might be entering your life! 

If you have treated people kindly, fairly, and with integrity, but haven’t been treated this way in relationships, the card suggests things are about to change! The balance will be restored and a loving partner you deserve will enter your life! 

The Justice Tarot card also suggests that people that have treated you badly will pay for their actions. Karma is coming for them! 

Money And Career

Career-wise, the Justice card suggests you need to create a better work/life balance. Although your career is important, you need to take time to care for yourself and recharge too.

We need to support ourselves financially and have ambition, but you need to live a life too! 

As the saying goes, you don’t want to be so busy building a life that you forget to live one! So make time for the people in your life that you love while you build your career. 

Financially, the card suggests you are balancing your books. The Justice card is a reminder to act with integrity when it comes to business and money.

Doing so will pay off with a big reward!

If you were planning on a business or investment gamble, this card is a good omen. Take the plunge! 


The Justice Tarot card is a karma card. It does not mean you will be punished for past mistakes, but rather you have chosen to learn lessons in this lifetime. The universe is sending you those lessons.

Make sure you pay attention to these lessons. The sooner you do, the better you and your life will be! 

Reversed Justice Tarot Card General Meaning 

The reversed Justice card has a different meaning, so let’s take a look at what it can mean now! Generally, the card indicates avoiding karmic justice or injustice.

This could be you being treated unjustly or there is a situation where the choices of others are unfairly affecting you. You might feel victimized or blamed for things that are not your fault. 

No matter the situation, it is important you maintain your balance. If you didn’t create the situation, you choose how you react to it. This can be a lesson in itself! Make sure you take time to pause and react to the situation correctly. 

The reversed Justice card also indicates someone is trying to avoid their karma. If you have made a bad choice that has impacted others, you need to take accountability.

Don’t avoid the consequences or blame others. Instead, learn from it and move forward with more self-awareness and wisdom. 

The card also suggests dishonesty. If you have been caught lying, don’t lie your way out or attempt to justify it. Instead, confess, accept the consequences, and move forward.

The card suggests someone with uncompromising views that could be prejudiced. Take time to examine this and consider if this is what you want in your life. If these are your views, consider if they are correct and how you could change them. 

If you are in a legal dispute, this is not a good card to get. It suggests the outcome will not be what you hoped for or an unjust outcome. 

Now that we have looked at the general meaning of the reversed Justice card, let’s move on to look at what the card means in closer detail. 


The reversed Justice card suggests you need balance as we saw earlier. But in the reversed sense, it suggests there is a lack of balance that could cause health issues.

Now is the time to avoid overindulgence and take care of yourself. 

Love And Relationships

The reversed Justice card suggests being caught out cheating or lying. If you have cheated on or lied to your partner, consequences are on their way!

You might also find that arguments between you and your partner are endless, which can be a sign you are not being treated as an equal in the relationship. 

Before you judge your partner, take some time to consider your role in your relationship. Is it fair to blame the problems entirely on your partner, or can you take some of the blame too?

You can try and learn from the situation, regardless of where the blame lies.

It’s worth remembering that we teach others what we accept and how to treat us, think about what you have accepted from your partner. If you are unhappy with their treatment of you, now is the time, to be honest. 

If you are single, the reversed Justice card suggests you might feel ready for a relationship but have not learned the lessons from your past relationships.

By not learning from your past mistakes, you will be unable to move forward and have a healthy relationship[. You need balance in your life, so spend some time reflecting on the lessons you need to learn to ensure your next relationship is healthy and happy. 

Money And Career

Career-wise, the card suggests you are being treated unfairly at work. You might be blamed for other people’s mistakes. You might also feel like people are trying to sabotage you.

No matter the issues, don’t react immediately. Take the time to calm down and find a logical response that can solve the situation. 

Charging in and confronting people is not going to solve the issue. You will find yourself arguing and not winning the argument! 

The reversed Justice card also suggests you have not been acting with integrity and that this behavior is coming back to bite you. The card also suggests corruption in business.

It’s best to take accountability and learn from your mistakes instead of trying to deny them. You will get more respect if you take ownership than try to lie or avoid the consequences. 

The card also suggests there is a lack of work/life balance in your life. You might be focusing on work too much or your personal life, which can impact your mental health. Take time to recalibrate and create a healthier balance in your life. 

Financially, the card suggests you should avoid risky gambles or investments. You might also sugar a financial injustice, so be careful when getting involved in any financial deals. They might not be as good a deal as you think! 


The reversed card suggests the universe is sending you lessons you need to learn from, but you are trying to avoid them. You might also be refusing to accept these lessons.

Life lessons tend to start small, allowing us to learn without going through turmoil or upheaval. But if you refuse to learn, the universe will bring these lessons back in bigger ways with more consequences. 

It is best to learn these lessons quickly to avoid the added consequences! You might feel like you are treated unjustly when you see this card. You can use this time to rise above the circumstances and connect to your higher self.

Final Thoughts 

And there you have it, all the possible meanings of the Justice Tarot card! Remember that the card is telling you to focus on the lessons that you need to learn.

You must spend some time reflecting on these lessons and learning from them before you move forward with your life.
