The Book says: “What does she tell [The Fool} with such eloquence? That not everything he needs to learn can be perceived with the naked eye or sensed with the physical body that delights him so. She gives him a sense of the awe and mystery of the great No-thingness. She gives him a sense of its great cosmic cycle and its universal rhythms. She gives him a glimpse of the eternal. More importantly, she gives him an awareness of the eternal, for one cannot seek it out if there is not realization that such a state of being even exists.
This glimpse, this awareness, along with a hint of what it takes to find this state of being again … these are the great gifts of the High Priestess, the Spiritual Mother.”
TarotBroad’s Buzz: The High Priestess almost seems to be coming out of the wall at us. It’s as though she’s ripping through the veils of time and space and entering our awareness to bring us a message or offer guidance. A chalice sits on a table in the center of the room. What does it offer – healing, insight, knowledge? The butterflies reinforce the sense that this woman is otherworldly and connected to our spirit freed from all boundaries and limitations. It’s as though I walked in expected a gypsy woman to tell my future and instead met a Goddess.
She seems ageless, timeless; both a being of the otherworld and yet real and grounded in this one. Her aura glows with power that she has learned to use wisely. I have a feeling she has made mistakes along the way but only once and then she learns from it and grows stronger and wiser. She is almost terrifying. As I look at her I feel the need to kneel and pay obeisance. I feel unworthy to enter her presence because I am so flawed and arrogant.
However that is her mission, her calling in life. She is there to gently lift us up and offer guidance and wisdom. She reminds us that our mistakes are lessons and the only way to true wisdom is to embrace those lessons. She knows human nature and while it may sadden her she is realistic too. She knows there is potential for abuse of her powers and knowledge. She knows that there are those who seek it only for their own glory and fame. However she is a true spiritual leader. She offers the wisdom and insight to all. What we choose to do with it is our decision.
