Portable Magic
Book Details
Portable Magic: Your own intuitive perception of this spirit is that she is female, so you modify her title, calling her the Lady of Peace Restored. You conceive her initially much as she is depicted on this card in the Rider Waite Tarot, as a slender woman with short dark hair who wears a long white robe that hangs down to her feet. She is not blindfolded, as she appears on the Waite card, nor does she carry swords. These symbolic details on Waite’s version of the card are only intended to indicate A. E. Waite’s concept of the card, and are not inevitable features of the elemental spirit of the card. This description is intended only as an example another magician might well see the spirit differently.

Complete Book of Tarot: When reversed, the Six of Wands can quite literally depict resting on one’s laurels. You may have to struggle to enlist the cooperation and goodwill of others. Any honors or recognition you receive may be undeserved. You may be facing a temporary setback in which your creativity feels blocked. Facing this challenge can be a journey in self-discovery.

Complete Book of Tarot: Finally, I should mention that for many contemporary tarot readers, the High Priestess is a symbol of the wisdom of the tarot. Originally called the Female Pope (La Papessa), this priestess represents an unorthodox, nonpatriarchal approach to knowing. In the Rider-Waite-Smith tradition, she sits in front of a body of water, signifying our emotions and the unconscious. Behind her stretches a veil that obscures the entryway to the inner world of hidden knowledge. Either side of the priestess stand light and dark pillars, suggesting that she can help us to reconcile apparently conflicting dualities. As an unorthodox wisdom figure, La Papessa offers us access to extraordinary ways of knowing, including the various occult and esoteric sciences. Her astrological symbol is the Moon, a feminine planet linked to cycles, sleep, dreams, intuition, goddesses, spellcasting, shapeshifting, and ceremonial magic.
