Tarot #52: VIII Adjustment/Justice, the balance will be maintained with precision no matter how wild the dance


Delicate Dance

The balance is the beauty,

each part moving freely

and yet affecting each other part,

compensating to retain the center.

If the form is awkward,

the movements must wobble.

Thus perfection mars the balance

and brings the structure down.

The balance is the beauty.

Can I give so that you can take

and receive what is given equal to your movement?

I must move to fill a certain space,

if you move toward an empty place.

If you bend to pick up a pin,

I must move further from the center .01 steps

and up one penny’s width.

Or, should I scuff an indent

and sink in a cold puddle depression at my heel.

It is time to take stock of your movements in the world and account for those actions that have thrown you or others of course. You may need to find a point of reference or objective source to help set you straight.


You may have been overly extrovert, extravagant and assertive, or too passive, submissive and slow to respond in your day to day relationships relationships with others. It is time, after reviewing your recent behavior as objectively as possible, to adjust your behavior to suit the situation.

There is something from your past that you feel guilty about or which you feel someone else owes you recompense which is throwing you out of balance. This is the time to bring it out into the open so that you can deal with it and put your life back on track.

Balance each thought against its exact opposite. For the Marriage of these is the Annihilation of Illusion.

Aleister Crowley, The Book of Thoth

Your vision will become clear only when you look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakes.

–Carl Jung
