Learn to read tarot - The High Priestess

This is my tarot reading blog to help you to learn the meanings of the tarot cards quickly and easily, using visual, audio and kinaesthetic cues.  I like to use the traditional Rider Waite tarot cards as the symbology is so beautiful.

The High Priestess

This is card number 2 of the major arcana - it symbolises duality and partnerships.

The high priestess sits in front of a veil which represents the conscious and unconscious mind.

The pomegranates on the veil represent seeds and fertility, the hidden feminine, marriage, life, death and rebirth.

Persephone who had to return to the underworld for 6 months every year is associated with the pomegranate.

The priestess sits between 2 pillars of metal, representing strength and establishment. 

Despite this there is a strong sense of the feminine with the Egyptian lily representing rebirth.

The priestess wears a blue robe, that is associated with the throat chakra and with communication.

On her head is a diadem representing authority.

On her lap there is a Tora scroll showing hidden knowledge, there is a feeling of secrets that will be revealed in time.

The moon represents change, moon cycles and feminine energy.

The high priestess is a teacher, a librarian, a guarder of knowledge of fertility and feminine secrets. She represents knowledge and depth, intuition and spirituality.

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 in your life.
