One of the “building cards” in Kipper, it denotes an institution of any kind, be it quite literally the court of law, but also any bureaucratic structure, corporate headquarters, public institution, cultural organization, hospital, police station etc.
If not standing for a literal building, it is the symbol of justice, of court proceedings (especially when near the Court official card), legal and notarial matters. It allows us to see whether the final outcome of our lawsuit will be auspicious or inauspicious by observing the surrounding cards. It stands for formalities, prejudice, rigid structure and rules, but also decisions that need to be made and plans to be followed through.
Court of law with it also carries a sense of balance which can often be delicate and tilt one way or another at the blink of an eye. It is a card of decision but of one that you have little power over. Your only choice is to sit and wait for the final verdict.
