A crowned female figure holds the scales of Justice in her left hand and the double edged sword of the law in her right. She sits between twin pillars that symbolizes the eternal opposites or opposing forces in life. Justice is concerned with weighing up the balance, with integrity, fairness and reason. The Fool, on meeting card Seven, learns that force can reconcile opposing elements. He now discovers that this may also be achieved by intellectual means, using logic and reason.
