Equilibrium

Legend Arthurian, 1995
The Lady of the Lake emerges today as Justice, looking a bit like a topless Angel of the North. She rises from the water, arms outstretched to mimic scales, the scabbard on one side, and Excalibur on the other. The rather startled little dude in the front is our hero, King Arthur. I hope that sword magically shrinks down to his size, or he's gonna have a hard time carrying it.

I'm not sure why The Lady of the Lake has been chosen to represent Justice, but the image says enough without us necessarily being able to relate her story to the card. Anna-Marie Ferguson suggests that she represents 'cosmic law', and that her appearance 'signifies the workings of destiny and karma.' Fair enough.

  1. I love this card. For some reason looking at it gives me strength. Not sure that is what Justice is about, however, for me, at this moment, that is what I felt.

    1. I can see that. She's just so huge and sturdy looking. She does exude strength here. I guess she makes us feel that Justice will out.

  2. With the sword, she provides both a way of assessing people (who can pull it from the stone), a tool for enforcing that justice, and a way of bringing closure (when the sword is thrown back into the lake). I like it :)
