The High Priestess Tarot Card Meanings
The High Priestess holds the secrets and mysteries of the Universe but she doesn’t give them up easily. She guards the veil between the worlds of the known and the unknown and encourages us to look beyond the ordinary and mundane to the deeper core of our unexplored potential.
The High Priestess Tarot card represents instinct and intuition and she asks you to be still so you’ll hear when she whispers in your ear. This is a card of quiet reflection as we ponder the mysteries of the Universe or those matters as yet unknown to us. If we’re patient the truth will be revealed to us at just the right moment, but in her own time, not ours.
We often have to work for the knowledge The High Priestess holds, we earn her respect and trust through developing our inner processes and in turn she unfolds the path before us. Her domain rests in the deeper side of life, the complex aspects of higher thought and knowledge found within spiritual or esoteric matters, and she provides the ability to awaken your unexplored potential. When this card appears it represents a good time to study spiritual matters and for those who work in this field it can represent your work.
It may be that a situation is still developing behind the scenes but be patient and alert, listen to your instincts and intuition, for The High Priestess will make sure the information reaches you, and it often comes from something you hear or are told in passing. It’s often like a missing piece in the jigsaw and suddenly something makes sense.
If reversed it may indicate ignoring your deeper instincts, false teachers or prophets, not seeing the bigger picture, or emerging after a period of withdrawal.
