The High Priestess ~ Exploring the Mystery Within!
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the High Priestess (The Popess), representing: Intuition, inner-wisdom, contemplation and reflection. The High Priestess is crowned by the Moon, and knows that it is in the mystery of night—the great unknown—that her power lies. She sits passively, waiting in silent expectation to receive her answers from within.
The High Priestess is a powerful spiritual figure. She is in touch with her intuitive abilities—her inner knowing—and can trust them completely. She values her independence and does not worry or take on the judgment of others. She is completely self-sufficient, with the reservoir of spirit to guide her. She is a reminder to you, that the more you except yourself and learn to trust your own intuitive gifts, the deeper the clarity of your perceptions will become.
The High Priestess is the archetype of healer, teacher and counselor. She is Wise Woman in the most sacred sense, and often the person that others seek out for counsel and advice. Perhaps you have noticed that members of your family or tribe look to you for council and insight. You may think you are only offering a kind ear, but know that your ability to listen and hold space offers powerful healing. This is no small thing.
This card signals a time to go inward and connect to your own inner High Priestess and the wisdom she holds. Meditation, reflection and ritual are powerful tools for you to gain insight and commune. Remember, one of the most difficult of actions is “conscious non-action”—the ability to be silent and receive.
High Priestess Mantra: As I ask, so will I receive.
Wishing you a deeply insightful week!
