The High Priestess

The High Priestess is a link to the subconscious mind through dreams and symbols. Representing wisdom, knowledge, serenity, and understanding, she is the guardian of the unconscious realm. This card appears at times when you should look to your dreams and intuition for guidance. You need to listen to and trust your inner voice. There may be areas in your life that are out of balance and require the wisdom of the unconscious realm. Answers to recent dilemmas will come through your intuition and inner voice. If a male querent pulls this card the message may be especially clear: your anima, or female side, must be heeded if you seek success and progress. For both sexes, the feminine voice of the universe holds the answers you seek.

If you see a High Priestess surrounded by cups cards in a reading, you are fully in the realm of the subconscious and intuitive. If your query is about a problem in your life a cups/High Priestess combo is strongly suggesting that the issues are in the realm of feelings and people’s connections to one another and their emotional, rather than intellectual states. Paired with the Magician, the cards may be indicating that there is profound power to found in the unseen realm and that you can marshal these forces to reach your goals. The Magician always makes me a little nervous and never more so than when he appears with the High Priestess; dark powers could be at work in your or those around you. In a reading she may also indicate coming change. If you allow her to guide you, your intuitive and creative powers will increase. This is a card that often comes up for artists, poets, and writers.
