Moon in Libra – High Priestess in Justice’s Clothing

The High Priestess in Justice's Clothing

High Priestess as Justice

Looking at this transit through the lens of the Tarot, it would be like the High Priestess is wearing Justice’s clothing. She takes on the mantle of the Karmic Decider.

The High Priestess is concerned with ideas and ideals. She swims in the big picture and reflects everything around her. Her wisdom comes through observation, grand non-judgmental perception of everything flowing by and through her.

Her interest is not in what is right or wrong, but simply in what is.

She flows with the universe asking no one to excuse themselves, only to be what they are – good, bad, or somewhere in the middle.

In contrast, Justice does care about what’s good or bad. The scales she holds weigh, consider, and decide what’s right and wrong. And her sword lets us know she has the authority to carry through on the decisions she makes.

When she sees unbalance, Justice requires adjustment. Truth is indispensible and unfairness intolerable.

For the High Priestess to act as Justice, she must force herself to care about the outcome, to get down to choosing, not just sitting in the middle.

And she’s not particularly happy about it. She’d rather see both sides, not say that anyone ‘should’ or ‘should not’.

With the High Priestess as Justice, or the Moon in Libra, we might be required to face up to something and decide.

Our emotions will demand respect. If we’ve leaned too far back or forward, we’ll probably find ourselves moving just as dramatically the other way.

It can be a slightly challenging period, perhaps a little manic. But by the time it’s done, something is likely to have been decided upon.

Don’t be alarmed by conflicting emotions. They’re there because you can see both sides. It’s not good enough though to just acknowledge them and walk away.

During this transit you’re being asked to take a stand one way or another. And you’ve got the wisdom and power to do so.
