Today’s Community Tarot Card is The High Priestess. She represents hidden knowledge. Not just occult secrets, but things within ourselves that are presently hidden from us. She reminds us that the better we understand ourselves the more we can help ourselves and others. This is especially true of the shadow self. If we don’t accept the offer of her guidance into our inner lives, if we press on without making any attempt to access her insight, we will do more harm than good.
Each Tarot card offers us a Gift, Invitation and Challenge. (Hint: the Gift is the grace that is already given us to overcome the Challenge.) Before you read on, decide if you want to know what Gift, Invitation or Challenge The High Priestess has for you. All will be revealed below. Please let us know in the comments what your choice was and how the answer applies to you.
About the image: The High Priestess Tarot card from the Universal Waite Tarot deck. The High Priestess is fair skinned with short dark hair and brown eyes. Unsmiling, she appears to be deep in thought. She is sitting on a throne that is actually a block of concrete. She wears a blue cape over a white robe. On her head is a white veil topped with a white crown in the shape of full moon with a crescent moon on either side. There is a large equal across on her chose One hand is hidden beneath her cape and the other holds a scroll. At her feet is a large yellow crescent moon. On either side of her is a pillar. One pillar has the letter B and the other J. The floor is yellow and behind her is a tapestry depicting ten pomegranates in the shape of the Tree of Life.
The Gift of The High Priestess is to enter into a time of reflection and non-activity. Meditation and resting the mind will allow knowledge of the next step you need to take.
The Invitation of The High Priestess is to embark on a journey of learning and understanding.
The Challenge of the High Priestess is understanding that you don’t yet have all the answers you need to make a good decision. There are hidden pitfalls, but also hidden opportunities, yet to be uncovered.
