High Priestess


2 | High Priestess


General Aspects:

Patriarchal, conquerors, man-made laws, speaking, discipline, duality, antithesis


The HIGH PRIESTESS presides over the secrets of birth and death and understands the necessity of separation. She is a clairvoyant who sees into other worlds. In these patriarchal times, she hides behind her veil lest her message be misunderstood and misinterpreted by humanity. She knows the Book of Life by heart, but shares not, only giving out small hints, accepting and enjoying man's bribes of worldly wealth.

Interpreted use:

You already know what lies behind her veil. It is too valuable to be bought! Use it!

Reversed (card received upside down):

Be on your guard not to be englamoured by the outer show; unless, of course, it is her jewels you are after.
