The High Priestess Tarot Card Meaning

The High Priestess is the guardian of the unconscious. He sits in front of the thin veil of indeterminacy, the only thing that separates us as humans from our inner world. Hidden within you is the secret of all things and silently conveys to us the message: "Stay there and know that I am God."

The High Priestess is the gentle female element to balance the masculinity of The Magician. The archetype for the feminine element in the tarot is divided equally between The High Priestess and The Empress. The High Priestess is an unpredictable mysterious element that women often show, especially in societies that focus on materialism and fine customs. Meanwhile, The Empress card symbolizes the absolute role of women in society.

In a reading, The High Priestess challenges you to dig deeper, look for things beyond and beyond what the current evidence offers, to discern what's just the surface to find what's going on. covered or even covered in mist. He also asks you to rethink your unlimited potential and remember the limitless possibilities within you. The High Priestess can symbolize a silence that requires waiting and accepting everything. To achieve a goal does not necessarily require action. Sometimes silence is just what it takes for things to flourish when the time comes.
