The High Priestess

The High PriestessThe laws of the universe suggest that in life we cannot only go after sure things. What is important is not the results we get but the lesson we learn. We cannot be afraid of the unknown -we need to take a chance, dive in and follow what life brings us.

The High Priestess, like the Fool, cannot provide a definite answer. This is a card with a moral that calls upon us to get down deep and explore our darkest parts –those hidden areas that we usually avoid out of habits, fears and concerns. Coping with these parts and what they might reveal will not be easy but, at the end of the process, we will learn our lesson.

When the High Priestess appears the card indicates uncertainty and mystery. There are unclear things in our life and we feel that we are walking on the edge of an abyss, that nothing is safe. But it is important to understand that in life we should not always seek the safe route but also open the door for mystery and uncertainty in our lives. When the card shows up we need to take a chance and let life lead us to the unknown so we can learn the lesson that will help us grow. A lesson that will lead to enlightenment!
