XI - Justice

An Angel holds the Scales of Justice. On one side, a man is being pulled down by devils. On the other, small angels struggle to help a woman to restore the balance. The Angel's staff is topped by a gilt owl to signify knowledge.

My Interpretation: Do what is right.

Fairness, justice and equal opportunity. Fate may aim to give all what they deserve, but sometimes she needs a helping hand, and the strong should help the weak.

(Reversed: Injustice, false accusations and prejudice)

Edit notes: This is reasonably similar to the Rider-Waite card, so should be recognisable to RWD readers. I have given her a staff topped with a gilt owl rather than a sword, as my personal belief of Justice is that it is more effectively achieved by wise counsel than threat of force. And it fitted better with the composition... More similar to RW than original.
