May 13 I wanted to look at my trusty THOTH Tarot deck
Card # 8 ADJUSTMENT/JUSTICE/KARMA, LIBRA
Traditionally the TAROT TRUMP #8 is called STRENGTH and under the influence of LEO in most Tarot decks. It shows a woman holding open a lion’s jaws, having the strength to conquer fear and our animal instincts.
The THOTH deck has # 8 as JUSTICE, or ADJUSTMENT and is assigned to LIBRA and has STRENGTH as # 11 which is Leo ruled.
The two card are interchangable and different Tarot decks often show 8 as Strength or Justice and 11 as Justice or Strength. The Thoth deck changed the progression for metaphysical reasons.
Number 8 is wealth in China, all 8 directions on the karmic wheel and in Feng Shui.
This card shows the scales of JUSTICE or KARMA. Justice is Blind because she need to be perfectly neutral, unattached. LIBRA is an air sign. Libra is all about committed relationships.
Number 8 turned on its side is INFINITY- ETERNITY -NOW
In the ETERNAL NOW- where hangs your karma?
As my famous old teacher STUART WILDE- may he forever be wilde- said “Infinity has no future.”
We are hanging in the karmic balance. EQUANIMITY, poise, non attachment are the best ways to proceed.
