Tiny Tarot Wisdom for Spoonies: Justice

In Tiny Tarot Wisdom for Spoonies, I’ll be going through every card individually and sharing mini insights we as disabled and neurodivergent (ND) witches can take from it.

The most straightforward interpretation of Justice for disabled/neurodivergent folks is to advocate for your needs and the needs of other disabled/ND people. And yes, that is absolutely important. But I’d like to offer a hidden, secondary meaning as well: be fair to yourself. 

I often pull Justice when I’m pushing myself too hard or expecting too much of myself. Justice demands a world that is safe and fair for everyone. It’s easy to picture that scales-holding figure on the front lines of a protest march or arguing passionately for equal rights in a courtroom. But Justice isn’t just for the many; it’s for individuals, too. If you’re holding yourself to a higher standard than everyone around you, Justice reminds you that you’re also a human and deserve equity and grace. 

Justice doesn’t want you to ignore your needs and limitations. Maybe you’re holding yourself to the same standard as your abled/neurotypical loved ones–that isn’t fair! When considering Justice, try to imagine your situation in reverse. If someone you loved was pushing themself too hard or ignoring their access needs, would you tell them, “Wow yeah, you’re terrible at this. Try harder!” Probably not. You’d remind them to be kind to themself, to speak up if they need accommodations, etc. Treat yourself with the same respect and equity. It’s only fair.
