 The Priestess


The Priestess


I am the Priestess

Queen of the stillness.

I like to meditate, seek what’s inside

My strong intuition acts as my guide.

With lunar crown and papal robes,

I have no use for normal clothes.

I am a teacher,

But not a preacher.

The female pope at number two,

I can keep a secret from you.

I’m very quiet but not asleep,

Remember still waters run deep.


The priestess is a strong quiet woman, she is smart and intellectual and well read. She may be working in education, she is an introvert and not really interested in fashion. She would rather meditate than go to a wild party. She says what she needs to say when it is needed, she is intuitive and very deep.

Most books on tarot do not give you many tips on how to interpret the card in different positions. Here are some ideas on how to interpret "The Priestess' in different positions using the traditional Celtic Cross spread.

Card number one, Present Position:  the questioner is quiet, thoughtful, perhaps they are a teacher or they are in education of some type.

Card number two, Immediate Influence:  the questioner is being influenced by a teacher, a quiet woman, someone who likes to meditate, a calming influence.

Card number 3, Goal or Destiny:  the questioner is looking to become  more centered, calm and at ease with the world or to work in educating others.

Card number four,  Distant Past Foundation: many years ago, the questioner learned many things from someone who was quiet and intellectual or they were more studious and introverted themselves.

Card number 5, Recent Past Events: the questioner has met someone who is quiet and less outgoing or they were that person.

Card number 6, Future Influence: the questioner will become more like the priestess or be influenced by someone who has the characteristics of the priestess.

Card Number 7, The Questioner: the questioner has the characteristics of a teacher, intellectually curious, quiet, introverted  -this relates to the personality of the questioner in relation to the question asked.

Card Number 8, Environmental Factors: there is someone or something in the questioner's life who has the characteristics of the priestess.

Card Number 9, Inner Emotions: the questioner wants to be more serious, educated, studious, possibly calmer, more likely to explore their inner world.

Card Number 10: Final Result: the priestess in this position may mean that the questioner has attained some inner peace, has become more meditative, intellectual, calmer and less concerned with worldly things.

Tarot Readings!

I started reading tarot cards many years ago when I was in college, I was studying business but my real interest has always been in psychology, astrology, tarot and dreams. I waited a long time to pursue tarot reading professionally. I do not understand how tarot cards work or why they work. I do not believe that you need special powers to read the cards but experience and an understanding of the symbols on each card opens the doors to a successful interpretation.

It is a good idea to be in a quiet place to have a tarot reading, to be able to free your mind of distractions and concentrate on an issue that you would like some insight into. Tarot cards can give you insight into situations and things that are happening around the questioner.
