Tarot > The High Priestess
When was the last time you went against your intuition or gut feelings
just to hear yourself say ‘I knew I shouldn’t have done that, I somehow
knew it wouldn’t work out’?
This gut instinct, intuition or 6th sense, whatever you want to call it,
is our spirit, our subconscious or what I
like to call our ‘authentic’ self speaking to us.
The High Priestess card represents this very intuitive guide we all have
within ourselves, and we can always call upon her provided we have the
courage to listen to her.
So often we take what appears to be the easy option, or we remain in our
comfort zone, only to later realize the illusion. For example, have you
ever stayed in an abusive or unfulfilling relationship, despite your
‘intuition’ telling you that you are unhappy and should leave, just to
avoid being on your own?
Have you remained in a dead end job that brings no satisfaction and a poor
income, despite your ‘intuition’ telling you that you could do so much
better for yourself if you could find the courage to leave?
Fear of the unknown, fear of rejection and fear of loneliness are, for me,
the three greatest reasons why we choose to be deaf or ignorant to our
intuitive guide, and wind up staying in relationships, jobs and situations
that we are far from happy with.
When this magical and enigmatic card appears in your reading, ask yourself
‘what is the secret to finding the happiness I seek?’ For The High
Priestess is the keeper of secrets, your secrets, and the greatest irony
is that you are the only one who can know the secrets she has to share
You must develop the ability to silence the noise of your conscious fears,
and allow your mind to be still and silent enough for your intuitive guide
or High Priestess to communicate with you. Thus she will reveal the secret
to your own happiness.
The more you learn to trust your intuitive guide, the more aligned you
will become with your ‘true’ desires and your ‘true’ self. For example, if
the quiet voice in your head is telling you that starting an affair with
your boss is not a good idea, it may be wise to listen to it!
If that voice grows ever louder and more persistent about something you
are doing or considering, see it as your own High Priestess imploring you
to listen ... you need to pay attention!
So, when The High Priestess appears in your readings, it’s time to ask
yourself how you really feel and think about the issue or situation? Your
conscious self must learn to trust your intuitive self.
