II – The High Priestess

2-ii-the-high-priestess

Archetype
The Anima – Unconscious Female

Symbolism
The High Priestess is the mysterious unknown that women often represent. She poses a challenge to you to go deeper – to look beyond the obvious, surface situation to what is hidden and obscure.

Upright
Mystery, Intuition, Subconscious Mind

This is a time to rely on your intuition and your inner knowledge, rather than your conscious mind or intellect. When faced with uncertainty, listen to your heart; follow your instincts. Pay attention to your dreams and look for areas in your life that may be out of balance.

Reversed
Hidden Agenda, Shallowness, Poor Judgment

You may be finding it difficult to “hear” what your intuition is telling you. If that’s the case, it’s a clear signal to quiet down, spend some time in meditation, and spend some time alone. There is a tendency to assume that one is always right, despite contrary evidence. This card can also represent repressed feelings, an over-reliance on the opinions of others, and an excessive need for approval and validation.
