Justice Card Spread

On This Day

Justice is one of the four cardinal virtues, along with Temperance, Fortitude (Strength), and Prudence. Females depicted these virtues in fifteenth and sixteenth century icons. Mysteriously, Prudence is absent from the tarot pack, though her sisters all make an appearance.

On this day in 1956, the Supreme Court upheld the ban on segregation in public schools, colleges, and universities. This action corrected an injustice that never should have existed in the first place.

Summation of Spread

The Justice card expresses the need for balance and harmonizing conflicting needs through actions, thoughts, and words. Justice is highly aspected with work and serves as a reminder that we reap what we sow.

Using the highest US court as inspiration, this spread examines symbols found within the Justice card.
