Key 11 Justice & Libra Season Mini-Tarot Readings for Each Sign of the Zodiac

Updated: Jan 30, 2022

September 22nd ushered in Key 11, Justice, the card of Libra.

Justice calls for us to review our moral code and inner compass. It’s a time for reflection and adjustments needed between the judgments we pass on ourselves and others, as well as the comparison between the two. The scales of Justice remind us that we shall not pass judgement on another without judging ourselves first, and conversely, we should be mindful not to tip the scales through negative self imagery or projection. Justice’s sword reminds us to keep our thoughts pure in intention, to think clearly and mindfully, to seek truth always, and to cut through negative or dishonest evaluations, assumptions and comparisons. The balance between the scales and the swords remind us that we find equilibrium when we are able to balance the head and the heart. Justice asks that we practice the art of compassion, both towards the self and others. To weigh ourselves only against ourselves, and that we be honest and true to who we are and what we stand for. To let your moral code, above all else, guide you in your life. To dictate what you do and do not do in the material world, even when no one is looking. Justice, and the season of Libra, asks us to seek truth and understanding with a higher consciousness.

Check out these astrological highlights during Libra season:

9/27 - Mercury Retrograde - Mercury is named after the trickster God Hermes who shuttled messages between the gods and mortals, so our written, verbal and even non-verbal communication can become unclear, confusing, delayed or outright deceptive. Our techgear and modes of transportation (forms of communication and travel) may malfunction. It’s best to avoid starting anything new or making life changing decisions. Watch for gossip, rumors, jumping to conclusions or making assumptions, and fake news. Avoid signing contracts, and making unnecessary purchases (especially big ones). Avoid exes that attempt to resurface, particularly sly or toxic ones. Back up your tech, mean what you say and say what you mean, and live in a state “Re”: Review, Reschedule, Repair, Return, Rewrite, Redecorate, Restore, Replace, Renovate, Renew, etc.

10/6 New Moon in Libra - This is a time for setting intentions around relationships, social activities and involvement, spending time with family and friends, cooperation and working with others, a need for justice and fairness, beautifying the self and your environment, making or enjoying various artforms and those things that bring joy through being aesthetically pleasing.

10/7 Venus in Sagittarius - This is a time where we are seeking more freedom, excitement and adventure in our relationships, and can even be somewhat of a tease and flirtatious. The mind and knowledge is sexy. This is a good time to start something new with someone new, or create new adventures and memories with your current relationships. The world is your oyster. Be mindful of wandering eyes, the grass is greener syndrome, boredom through routine, and being judgemental.

10/10 Saturn goes Direct

10/18 Mercury goes Direct

10/20 Full Moon in Aries - This is a time to review the things in your life where you are impulsive, perhaps need to be bold or feisty, and where you need to stand your ground or let go of a fight that isn’t yours to fight. If you need courage or the will to start something new and/or see it through, this is the time to step into this challenge head on with full fire and might behind you. Embrace freedom and release the things that keep you bound to what no longer serves you.

Here’s a look ahead at what Libra season will bring or how each sign can work with the energy of Key 11, Libra & Justice. To get a more well rounded picture, look at your sun, rising and moon signs.

Aries - King of Swords - this month is about mental clarity and truth, using your intellectual prowess for a higher purpose, and relying on higher consciousness to direct your actions and inactions. Mean what you say and say what you mean, nothing less and nothing more.

Taurus - Wheel of Fortune - the tides have turned and cycles are completing, this is a time of good luck and fortune, where a turning point brings about the reaping of repayments for karmic debts. If you find destiny knocking on your door, are you ready to answer the call?

Gemini - Four of Swords - This month is about rest and rejuvenation through contemplation and surrender. To find answers not by actively seeking, but by passively observing and listening attentively. It is in the stillness and silence that Spirit can be heard, and answers become known.

Cancer - Justice reversed - This month it may be a struggle to find that balance between the affairs of the head and the affairs of the heart. Be mindful that you seek and speak from a place of truth in who you are at all times, especially when things are not just or fair.

Leo - Three of Swords - this month may bring about heartache and sorrow, but be mindful in your response rather than your reaction. Know that no matter if something is done to you, you have the power to determine how it ultimately controls you, or not. Watch for assumptions and expectations, especially in others.

Virgo - Nine of Wands - Hang on Virgo, this is a time to be resilient and persistent in your pursuit, stand your ground and put your boundaries up, and to choose courage over cowardice. If at any time you feel like you’re ready to throw in the towel,you are worn and torn, know you are almost at the end if you can only hold on.

Libra - Queen of Cups reversed - This month is about self awareness, self love and self care. You have given so much that now it’s time to go within to find your peace, recenter yourself and reconnect with those closest to you. You cannot pour from an empty vessel Libra, you have to replenish your source so that you can continue to give.

Scorpio - Seven of Pentacles reversed - This month may bring about a snag in your progress, it can even seem like everything has come to a stand still. Make sure that you are tending to your garden, focusing on your long-term goals, and making adjustments were needed when returns are not equal in effort.

Sagittarius - Five of Wands - This month you may find that you have a lot of things competing for your attention, that conflict, tension and competition are breathing down your neck. Know that no matter how tense it may get, you get to decide who you are in this scene and how you will respond. Not everything or everyone deserves your time and attention.

Capricorn - Nine of Pentacles - This month is about taking the scenic route; slow, easy, and joyful are your allies. Spend time in your studies, learn something new, focus on prosperity, abundance and the luxuries that life has to offer. Eat that brownie for breakfast and don’t feel bad about it.

Aquarius - Three of Wands - The future is bright, and the journey has just begun. Know that you are in a place of infinite possibilities where you are only limited by your passion, drive and imagination. If you have been waiting for the sign to take that next step in your journey, this is it. It’s time to put one foot in front of the others and see what the future holds.

Pisces - Three of Cups - This month is about joy, fellowship, friendship, and celebrations. It’s about letting down your hair, having a good time without the weight of the world on your shoulders, and letting your creative juices flow freely. Whether it’s a collaboration or the three aspects of the self working together beautifully in harmony, enjoy it wholly.
