Edmonton Tarot: Justice (VIII)


Interpretation: The Justice card relates to cause and effect, to action and its consequences, and to karmic balance. It can apply to a person's inner dynamics as well as to those of the external world. This card teaches that what goes around, comes around.

Image: This portrait of The Right Honourable Beverley McLachlin, Chief Justice of Canada, hangs in the Faculty of Law at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. An Albertan by birth, she was the first woman appointed as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada and has held that position since the year 2000. She is the University of Alberta law school's most famous graduate.

Actions and consequences - it sounds simple, but it's a lesson some of us never learn. Lovely portrait.

She looks like she is kind and fair. Yep, I agree, what you give in this life is what you will receive in return.

Really good portrait! And Bravo for her! (and only in a far north country would an official wear an ermine [?] stole)

Is it horrible that even after reading your lovely description of the Justice, all I can think it, "Her hair is sooo perfect!?"
