Upright Meanings: control, balance, honor, equality, compassion, confidence, taming, bravery, righteousness, virtue, courage, harmony, inner strength

The Juggler indicates the importance of mind over matter, and reminds you to focus on what you do want rather than what you don’t want in your life. Its main point is that you have the ability to harness your thoughts and to use them for your – and everyone else’s – highest good. Not only do you have the ability; you have the responsibility. So conquer your fears, control your impulses, and never lose patience with yourself or what you are doing.

Reversed Meanings: biased, unfairness, false accusation, weakness, vulnerability, self-doubt, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, abuse

When The Juggler appears in reverse it does not indicate that you are not strong; on the contrary, it indicates typically that there is more The Juggler in you and in your immediate situation than you are likely to be seeing at this time. If you are having trouble feeling where the strong points are at the moment, get with a trusted and honest friend and make a list.
