11. Justice – Mythic Tarot

Something needs to be dealt with diplomatically

Athena, Zeus’ favourite daughter, sits on her throne holding a sword in her right hand.  An owl sits on her left shoulder.  Owls represent wisdom and femininity, reflecting Athena’s clarity of vision.   In her left hand she holds the scales representing the ability to weigh up both sides of an argument and make an impartial judgement.

Athena is a warrior and a master strategist.  She has high principles and recognises that war is sometimes necessary to preserve truth.   She is logical and diplomatic and known for her services to humans.

The Justice card represents the Fool’s first moral lesson.  He must now build his character ready to deal with life’s experiences and travels.  It is time for him to plan and learn diplomacy and tact rather than aggression.

In a reading the Justice informs you that there is something that needs to be dealt with diplomatically.
