My self-study of Tarot continues with Justice. Or, as I just heard, “Even Steven.”
Stately; mighty; “live and die by the sword”; sword of justice; scales of justice; pillars of justice; weighted measures; balance; fairness.
Sword, scales, pillars, crown.
The sword stands out as being out of place to me. It stands for anything but justice, from my perspective. I can envision a gold heart or star or globe in that right hand, which better fits the dawning paradigm.
Purple, red, green, yellow, white, gold, blue.
The purple – violet – stands out with great strength. I liken it to the color of the crown chakra, and wonder how justice might better be served coming from that higher enlightened place.

The timing of this card in my pursuit of learning Tarot is synchronistic, to say the least, in light of the events in Orlando two short days ago.
For me, the shadow side of this card is represented by those events, and then some, given that the gunman took it upon himself to cast judgment where none was warranted, and then practice a heinous and misguided form of justice.
I believe true justice cannot be found through war or violence.
For me, the energy of Justice resonates most with Clarity essential oil blend.
