High arcan Hierophant and high arcan Emperor and high arcan Justice combination - These three together (in any combination) indicate a situation dealing with higher authorities, government, law of the land, etc.
Hierophant tarot card

Card 1 - Hierophant

The card depicts a religious figure that sits in a rather formal environment characteristic for a church. He is wearing three elaborate vestments which are designated to represent the three different worlds. His right hand is properly raised in an act of benediction, a sign of blessing – it s the same hand that the Magician has raised. In his other hand, he carries a triple cross, which is associated traditionally with the pope. Each of the horizontal bars in the cross are thought to represent the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. Beneath him, two acolytes are seated, representing the transfer of sacred knowledge within institutions. Through these acolytes, the card also comes to represent following the path to knowledge and education. This card is also known as the High Priest in certain decks - as well as the Pope. He is acting as the masculine counterpart of another card which is known as the High Priestess. This card is ruled by Taurus. 

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
The wisdom of The Hermit, sometimes the structure of The Emperor. Marriage and family cards would strengthen that association.

Opposing or contradictory cards:
nbsp; The Fool (free spirit and adventurous) The Hanging Man (thinking outside the box, unconventional) The Devil (excess, not following moral codes).

Hierophant combinations
When appearing together with other marriage cards it would strengthen the association, such as: Ten of Cups, The Lovers, Two of Cups, Four of Wands, Three of Cups, The Empress. The Ten of Pentacles, Ace of Pentacles (sometimes Justice), may also be included as supportive for what they represent, (but not in isolation). There are quite a lot of different combinations that can indicate marriage but the ordering or flow of the cards is usually the important factor, when reading in a simple line from left to right.

Emperor tarot card

Card 2 - Emperor

In the Emperor tarot card, a stoic ruler figure can be seen on his throne, which is adorned with the heads of four rams, representing his astrological sign - Aries. In one hand, he carries a scepter, representing his reign and his right to rule, and in the other an orb, a symbol of the kingdom that he watches over. The long beard of the emperor represents his vast experience; over time he has learned much about what it takes to rule, to establish power, authority and complete order for the benefit of his people. Behind him, the barren mountains shows his determination, his ambition for greater heights and his leadership capability. Contrast this with his complement, the Empress, whose flowing fields are filled with nurturing kindness. The Emperor instead rules with grit, strength and force.

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
Justice (logic and reason) Hierophant (conformity and structure) Ace of Swords (force of strength and power)

Opposing or contradictory cards:
The Emperor is the male yang to The Empress female yin, where the opposite forces of duality complement one another.

Justice tarot card

Card 3 - Justice

The Justice tarot card is a symbol of truth, fairness, and law. As she sits in her chair, the scales in her left hand represent how intuition should balance logic. She symbolizes impartiality with the double-edged sword in her right hand. The clarity in thought which is required to dispense justice are symbolized by the square on the crown she wears. Behind her, there is a purple cloak and standing grey pillars. Beneath her red cloak, which is held together by a clasp, she shows the tip of a white shoe. This is a spiritual reminder that what she delivers are the outcomes of their actions.

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
The Ace of Pentacles (contracts with material connection) The Emperor (rational and practical) The Hermit (deep thought and contemplation) Temperance (balanced emotions) King or Queen of Swords (lawyers, police, men/women with legal connections) Two of Pentacles (maintaining balance)

Opposing or contradictory cards:
Five of Wands (imbalance) Two of Swords (indecision, two minds) Five of Swords (dishonest)  

Justice combinations
Due to the legal implications of Justice there are lots of possible combinations, however, always check the defined meanings you normally use and follow progressions carefully to avoid misinterpretation or jumping to conclusions. I tend to look for a number of reinforcing cards when less favourable indications are present; these are more evident when using the Life Spread and Anchor. In legal matters you would hope to find a favourable card immediately following Justice to show a good outcome and happy resolution (The World, The Sun, Three of Cups, Six of Wands, etc).
