Swedish Which/Jolanda tarot - Justice VIII


Justice holds the familiar sword and scale in her hands; she's not blindfolded but wears a black mask with horns; she has wings and also feathers on her head. She has the Egyptian pyramids and the sky painted on her skirt. A The waning moon and the waxing moon are painted on the sky. A condor (?) can be seen in front of the card.

I could really use some help interpreting the symbolism in this card.

ETA I'll ad my understanding of the symbols later.

Mask:
cover the face, hiding emotion and personality

Its meaning related to the Justice card could be that Justice is impersonal and it applies in the same way to everyone. It is not driven by emotions.

ETA: Wings - could mean heavenly justice

Feathers - reference to the Egyptian goddess of Justice, Maat. It can also mean communication with spirit.

Sword pointed down - for me in this case means heavenly justice brought to earth

ETA condor symbolizes great insight into a situation. Thy are the largest birds of prey in the world(= no one can escape justice).
