    Today marks the beginning of Fall, and the Autumnal Equinox. It also marks the shift from Virgo to Libra. Within the language of the TAROT, the card known as Justice is tied to the zodiac sign of Libra.

    As the card indicates, true Justice represents a balanced approach to Intelligence. This theme is carried through the balancing of black and white throughout the card, in both the tessellated floor and the two pillars in the background.

    Even the figure of Justice shows a balance of forces. In her right hand, she holds a sword, symbol of the analytical aspect of Intelligence. This is complemented with the scales in her left hand which can be interpreted as a nod to the intelligence of the heart, which works in a more analogical, synthetic manner.

    True Justice represents a balancing of forces, the human aspect holding a stance of quiet strength where one's animal nature can relax and rest in a sense of safety.
