The Priestess symbolises spiritual forces and the understanding of higher truths through dreams and intuition
Her energy is subtle, and is seen as the harmony or inner balance we feel when we are in touch with our higher selves. Having such a quiet and serene energy, she often goes unnoticed by our conscious minds, which is why participating in meditation or stillness is important if you wish to have her wisdom imparted upon you, she will not make herself known like some other cards – instead she prefers to observe and let you explore your own depths in order to find what she has to tell you.
You must remove the barrier between the inner and outer beings,
The message – what you are seeking is easily found in silence and stillness, try to see the larger picture and glean insights from your ability to tap into your intuition, this way you refrain from being caught up in the details of situations.
The Priestess is also indicative of assistance from feminine spirit guides.
Jealousy – Blockages – Hidden Danger – Ignorance - Secrets
Reversed, The High Priestess indicates a lack of inner-harmony resulting from the suppression of feelings and the failure to acknowledge unconscious guidance and consistently going against your own intuition.
You may find that you are caught amongst others who have values and priorities which do not align with your own, superficiality may also be present…the support and commitment that you are seeking will not be found around these types.
Being in uncomfortable surroundings can trigger strong tendencies towards mood swings and unstable emotions, this can impair your judgement, resulting in jealousy and lack of insight and tact. At this time it is difficult to accept advice or counselling from others. The desire for secretiveness combined with the inability to share can lead to a waste of knowledge and skills.
If the reading is for a male and The High Priestess appears reversed, it can signify negative feelings towards women or that feminine qualities in himself are being ignored.
