She Wears A LEX Breastplate

Daily Draw: Bruegel Tarot ~ Justice

It is also inscribed in a rock in the stream at her feet. I had to look that up, it's Latin for enacted legislation. Justice is prepared to carry out the law with her scales and terrible swift sword. She is accompanied by Compassion who considers circumstances and need.

When considering need most of us would say it isn't much of a crime for a man to steal a loaf of bread to feed his starving family. Cigarettes are $7.20 now, if that man also is a smoker how would you view it? Would you be Justice's sword or Compassion's Birch limb?

"Justice is a temporary thing that must at last come to an end; but the conscience is eternal and will never die." ~ Martin Luther 1483-1546
