Justice ~ Getting to the Heart of the Matter!
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is Justice, representing balance, adjustment and centering. One of my favorite stories associated with this card is from Egyptian Mythology, the story of Maat—the Goddess of Truth and Fairness…
On Judgment Day, Maat took the form of an ostrich feather in the underworld. Upon death, one’s heart was placed on a scale weighted against Maat’s feather. Until the heart became as light as her feather, one had to repeat their earthbound journey. It was the heart, not the mind, which was judged, determining whether a soul was worthy to proceed forward onto the next phase.
The Justice card indicates a time to consider what aspects of your life are out-of-balance. You may be required to make adjustments, or even amends, to gain a new sense of equilibrium and harmony. Ultimately, this is a process of balancing the needs of the heart and the mind—both are important and must be considered to find centeredness.
It is important not to go to extremes; Justice encourages moderation and restraint! Whenever possible, seek middle ground. Even if circumstances may appear unjust, abstain from over-zealous thought or behavior. Instead, ask that Divine Truth be revealed to you. You can avoid major upheaval by doing this.
However, if something in your life is severely out of balance, know that the natural course of events will be for the situation to right itself. The outcome will mirror the degree of imbalance. In any case, the truth at the heart of the matter will be found and you can expect a renewed sense of harmony in your life!
Suggestion: Take time regularly for some form of meditation that steadies and centers you. Meditation is a way to help you find a balanced way to mediate all situations and find inner peace.
Wishing you a centered and divinely balanced week!
