The Emperor (Aries) invites us into self-determination, taking up space and externalizing our inner visions. Justice (Libra) asks us find balance in this determination by taking into account the experiences of the collective. Together, these two cards remind us that the power of the individual is a culmination of the wisdom that has come before us, and that for every intention and action we take, there is an answer. Nothing exists in a vacuum.
Libra asks us to love and to think of others, and reminds us that whatever lives within us, we bring without. how can we reckon with the pain we carry and inflict on each other? what does holistic justice look like? Can there be new ways for us to care for ourselves, for each other? How do you create the beauty that you want to see in the world? What does justice actually mean to you?
