THE HIGH PRIESTESS: After his encounter with the Magician, the Fool is ready to take a break from his daily hustle and slinks on down to a nightclub to let off some steam. There on the dark dance floor, with the whirling lights and booming music he catches a glimpse of a beautiful, elusive woman, slipping through a crowd, just out of sight, just out of reach. She makes sure to catch his eye with a mysterious smile and a nodof her head. The Fool follows, only to lose her again around another dark corner. The High Priestess is hard to catch. She is the keeper of your secrets, the knower of your potential and your destiny. But she won’t give it up until the time is right. She sees the heights of your immense, creative, dazzling dreams and the depths of your dark, angry, destructive impulses. In short, she knows what makes you tick. Much like her spiritual partner, the Magician, the High Priestess likes to guide one via dreams, interesting coincidences or chance meetings, alluding to a future that is yet to come. She is the nudge that suggests you pay attention, turn left and not right, say this and not that. She knows where you are going and patiently gives you intuitive clues on how to get there. Though intuition is not a concrete tangible thing, it does tingle your spidey sense informing you that something is afoot in your life. Maintaining a neutral outlook and opening yourself up to the possibilities are key. Practice meditation, listen to your feelings, pay attention to your dreams, then you’ll know your High Priestess is not as elusive as you think.
