The High Priestess

In the sequence, she represents the principle of the divine feminine. Her spiritual path is above material values and earthly relationships. Her gift is wisdom. She comes after the Magician, a card of unity and outward expression, and before card 3, The Empress. The High Priestess reveals that we need subconsciousness and awareness of the self before we can wholly engage in abundant relationships with others.

The Wild Unknown

“The high priestess sits in stillness. From there she is able to access realms others pass by without noticing…The vast world of intuition, dreams and mystery. She uses silence and nono-action to harness this power. sometimes this card appears to remind you to listen more closely to voice within. Other times its a sign to look past the obvious, to find whats being kept secret or hidden within a given situation. Acknowledge the shadows” – Kim Krans, TWU
