The Priestess rules our intuitive faculties. She helps us to see what is really in front of us, rather than seeing what appears to be there. She’s a gentle and tranquil influence who can help us develop our inner psychic abilities. So on her day, the best thing that we can do is practise entering into the silence in order that we can ‘hear’ our intuition. Spend a little time in quiet contemplation, still the incessant chatter that is part of everyday life, and just let your mind release the things it knows about that you haven’t had the opportunity to catch up with recently. This is something that so many of us don’t make time to do often enough. As a result, we miss an enormous amount of information that we pick up through every waking hour, and store automatically. Our ancient ability to read the signs of life still remains, whether we use it or not. But often we can be taken unawares by material that has slipped directly from our intuition directly into the subconscious because we don’t spend long enough relating to subliminal messaging.
So, on the Priestess’s day, try to remember to be open to the hidden type of message that she is so adept at assessing. Give yourself time to meditate and to listen to yourself. You’ll be surprised at what you learn! In readings, the High Priestess poses a challenge to you to go deeper – to look beyond the obvious, surface situation to what is hidden and obscure. She also asks you to recall the vastness of your potential and to remember the unlimited possibilities you hold within yourself. The High Priestess can represent a time of waiting and allowing. It is not always necessary to act to achieve your goals. Sometimes they can be realized through a stillness that gives desire a chance to flower within the fullness of time.

Elements of the Psychic World: Death is frequently foretold by the appearance or behaviour of certain animals, insects or birds associated with the afterlife. Black birds – crows, owls, ravens, rooks – are often though to be death omens when they appear in a village or cluster around a house. The howling of a dog or a black cat crossing the path are also thought to be signs that portend the death of someone nearby. Spiders are often associated with death, and according to American, British and European lore the deathwatch beetle, which makes a ticking or tapping sound during the summer months as it bores into wood, is considered the harbinger of a death in the family.

Portable Magic: order on the seven Double letters of the Hebrew alphabet, it remains to correctly assign the trumps that are linked to the Double letters by trading their locations in the sequence of trumps. It is at once obvious that the trump the Magician belongs with Mercury and the trump the High Priestess belongs with the Moon. Consequently, the Magician must be made the second of the planetary trumps and numbered 11, and the High Priestess shifted into first place and numbered I. As I mentioned earlier, the trumps have no intrinsic numbers of their own, merely numbers that indicate their locations in the series of the Greater Arcana.
Tarot for Beginners: Each departure from the more standard decks provides an opportunity to expand into new realms of meaning within the overall world of the Tarot. If youre just starting out, however, it probably makes more sense to stick with something in the more traditional category, and branch out to more unusual decks once you get more experience.

Tarot Triumphs: The Pope and the High Priestess are both cards about knowledge, but the difference is this: the High Priestess sits directly before the veil, which marks the entrance to the inner sanctum, while the Pope is enthroned some distance from the two pillars of the holy temple. (The traditional images are reasonably consistent in this respect.) So, whereas the High Priestess is a symbol of direct contact with the inner mysteries, the Pope represents spiritual authority outside of the sanctuary. He is empowered to give blessings.18 He is also a teacher, as witnessed by the little figures who kneel in front of him; it was common at the time to represent the image of a spiritual master or teacher as much larger than that of his followers.19 The Pope is thus a giant to his disciples, just as an important teacher can loom large in our lives, remaining as a permanent inner signpost to guide us long after contact has ceased. A teacher may take on a role as a kind of superman or superwoman who can at times be a wonderful support along the way, but at others an obstacle to making our own discoveries. I think many of us recollect teaching figures of authority from our past who have inhibited our progress rather than advancing it. The Pope can therefore be a symbol of the transmission of knowledge through a recognized chain of authority, but his teaching can become dogma and his dictates fossilize into rigid mandates.
