The High Priestess
This is one of my favorite cards in the Tarot. This card represents a deep connection with intuition, subconscious processes, and the moon. She seems to be a deeply spiritual woman led by her intuitive guidance. This could be related to psychic ability and paying more attention to the inner world. This card tells us that less attention needs to be put on the outer world and more attention on inner and the subconscious world. This card could be telling you to listen to your dreams, spending time at night in meditation, or using hypnosis to interact with the subconscious mind. She is in tune with the cycles of the moon. For example setting goals during the new moon and watching them grow and manifest as the moon gets fuller in its beauty. Dormant abilities like chnaelling and mediumistic tendencies might be awakened. The need for more reading of spiritual texts and seeking spiritual guidance from within.
The High Priestess sits at the gate before the great Mystery, as indicated by the Tree of Life in the background. She sits between the darkness and the light. The High Priestess is also known as Persephone, Isis, the Corn Maiden and Artemis. The blue robe the Priestess is wearing is a symbol of knowledge. The solar cross on her breast is a symbol of balance between male and female. The moon under her left foot shows her dominion over pure intuition. The planet associated with the High Priestess is the Moon.Image Blog
The High Priestess is the guardian of the unconscious. She sits in front of the thin veil of awareness, which is all that separates us from our inner selves. She represents spiritual enlightenment and inner illumination, divine knowledge and wisdom. She has a deep, intuitive understanding of the Universe and uses this knowledge to teach rather than to try to control others. She appears in a Tarot reading when there is a need to listen to and trust your inner voice.
The High Priestess Tarot card represents a link to the subconscious mind, which cannot be accessed through the everyday world but only through dreams and symbols. This card tells you to put aside a time when you can meditate and listen to your own inner voice. Your intuitive sense right now is providing you with useful and helpful information and is assisting you to become more in touch with your subconscious mind. The High Priestess indicates that your intuitive powers are increasing and you may be inspired to be creative.
