Libra in the Major Arcana: Justice
Achieving balance requires a warrior’s mindset. Hence, in the Tarot cards, the card associated with Libra is number eleven of the Major Arcana, Justice.
In most Tarot decks, the Justice card
Justice is a card that
Justice is a card that seeks truth above all else. Similarly, Libra is a sign that places heavy value on the truth. Librans tend to make excellent leaders and many of them go into politics because there is a strong desire to balance society and the world as a whole.
Librans naturally apply this sense of fairness and justice to their relationships as well, something else the sign is famous for. They will often take responsibility in a relationship and will see things from the other person’s point of view; if they feel they have behaved unfairly, they will own up to it. If they feel they are the ones who have been treated unfairly, they will be sure to let you know about it – unless, of course, this is a Libran who will avoid conflict at all costs!
Justice is a card that reminds us that what goes around comes around; in a Tarot card reading, it usually indicates that there is an imbalance somewhere that needs addressing. Imbalance is a permanent itch to a Libra and they can strongly relate to the Justice card because of it.
Libra in the Minor Arcana: King of Cups & 3 of Swords
In the Minor Arcana, Libra is most commonly associated with the King of Cups and the 3 of Swords.
The King of Cups is the master of his suit and the King of Love. He oversees his entire kingdom and believes in treating each individual with kindness, justice and equality. The King of Cups is the Libran in their most positive form – just, gentle, caring and strong without being brutish. When a Libra masters the imbalances that exist within them, they naturally transform into the King of Cups.
The 3 of Swords represents the harsher lessons that Libra must learn. Relationships are important to this air sign and they feel most complete when they are in a loving partnership with another, with friends and with the world in general. Their life may be riddled with heartbreak because they may have an idea of the ideal partner and discover no one can quite live up to these standards. What Libra realizes as time goes on is that the perfect partner they are seeking exists within themselves, and it is then that Libra achieves true equilibrium.
