Herbal Tarot - XI - Justice - Plantain


You can see the major arcana cards in Constellation 2.

Description: A cloaked woman is standing with her right arm raised while holding a crystal ball, and her left arm pointing down while holding a scale. There is a sword propped against one of the forest trees. There is a large plantain plant at the very front of the card.

Significant Details: The sword symbolizes protection and strength. The crystal ball symbolizes the future. The scales symbolize justice.

Keywords: Justice, Responsibility, Cause & Effect, Objectivity, Fairness

Medicinal Uses: “It cures the head by its antipathy to Mars and the privities by its sympathy to Venus. There is not a martial disease that it does not cure.” Culpepper’s Color Herbal. Traditionally used for snakebites. It was also thought to increase virility due to its phallic-shaped flowers. The leaves speed up the healing of wounds (American Nature Guides Herbs by Anna Kruger).

My Interpretation: This is a time of facing your responsibilities, and taking responsibility for your past actions. You need to use objectivity and fairness when facing an obstacle. In the search for justice you may have to face the cause & effect of your past actions.

Number Significance: Justice is in Constellation 2 with the II High Priestess, XX Judgment, and the Twos. 2 - Intuition. Self-sufficiency. Self-trust. Independence. Duality. Self and Other. Choice. Analysis. Struggle. Division. Reflection. Counterpoise or Contraposition. Equilibrium. Adjustment.

Thoughts/Points to Ponder: In order for the woman to use the sword she will have to either set aside her future plans or set aside justice. What will this woman decide is more important? What will she do? Will she leave the sword?
