This card carries no threat of sin and punishment, despite the sword and scales held so firmly by the lady on her throne. Unlike most representations of Justice, she wears no blindfold. She wears, instead, a jeweled crown, and a rich robe of red and green. Her birthday message for Libra is clearly contained in a single word: equilibrium. She is the symbol of personal poise and balance, particularly in the face of problems calling for sudden decision. She asks you to make certain that you understand both sides of any conflict, and all sides of any complex situation, before making a decision and taking action. The two pillars between which she sits symbolize Severity and Mercy. She brings into play, in you, Libra, this needed balance for continued success and happiness.
