The High Priestess
Tarot Number: 2
Zodiac Sign: Virgo
In Tarot, the High Priestess is the gatekeeper of the subconscious, initiating the querent into the realm of esoteric knowledge. She reminds us that by piercing the veil of the tangible, it is possible to truly flow with the universe. She is a call to embrace the feminine facets of the Divine—empathy, compassion and intuition. Only through alignment of these masculine and feminine energies is it possible to center yourself.
In the artwork, the Priestess stands before a mystic threshold. Her hands are shaped into the Gyana mudra, which symbolizes the melding of universal and individual consciousness, masculine and feminine, good and evil. A half-moon glows above, reminding us that each of these facets is one half of an indistinguishable whole. The Priestess serves as the mediator between these forces, and within herself embodies the middle path, a spiritual Golden Mean.
Upright: Intuition, unconscious, balancing dualities.
Reversed: Repressed inner-wisdom, feeling off-center, blocked femininity.
