Two of Swords | Justice | King of Pentacles
You might be feeling really aware of how everyone involved in this situation has their own version of truth. Black and white thinking can be tricky that way– are there really no shades of gray? If you are on the sidelines watching a dispute: is it difficult to discern who is right and who is wrong? What if you want to see more evidence or to hear another person’s version of the story? Is there really no way to compromise? Whatever happened to meeting someone half way? Or taking into account the full picture which paints the story of two individuals believing they are both right based on their version of the truth? Is it possible for two people to be right? What if you are both just being stubborn? Do you really believe this is the right thing to do, or do you just want to be right? And, if this battle involves a third person: What is right for them?
Justice will create balance regardless of what feels truly fair or just to you as an individual. Justice can take personal control and choice away, sometimes in favor of the law deciding what is right. What are the facts? What are the rules? And who are the rules going to favor in this particular situation? Sometimes our system of checks and balances or the legal system can feel inherently one-sided or out of balance because you need to know what the rules are in order to follow them and you need to have the capital in order to participate in the system. Does this system favor the privileged few who know the rules and have the resources to advocate their position? Something to think about.
Maybe there is someone in your environment who is willing to help you and they have the funds to do it. What resources are available to you? Is there a group who is willing to assist you with your position? Justice can work in your favor too. Ask for help. Look for an advocate.
