The High Priestess - Major Arcana Card #2

Excerpt from Dark Days Tarot Guidebook by Emily Mundy:

II. The High Priestess

The High Priestess reigns in the realm of the subconscious mind, higher powers, and mystery. She holds secret knowledge of past lives and ancestral, celestial worlds in her winding web of hair. She grows a glowing garden from her intuitive center. The High Priestess balances natural opposites delicately – heart and mind – and in this way, bestows compassion and illumination. In communion with the Moon, she contains energy that flows to mystical rhythms and exists on divine wavelengths of advanced emotions.

Suggested prompts:

upright: advanced emotions; the intuitive, subconscious mind; harmony

right: knowledge revealing itself

left: knowledge conserving itself

reversed: independent emotional current; trouble relaying feelings
