Tarot Guide: The High Priestess

The High Priestess

"The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in your life, acknowledge
the great powers around us and in us. If you can do that, and live that way,
you are really a wise man " - Euripides

Card Number: 2

Key Number: 13

Rulership: Moon

Numerical Value: 9


Here is The High Priestess in at Number 2. In Numerology 2 stands for Balance, The Feminine. 2 is passive where 1 (The Magician) was aggressive The High Priestess is the other half of The Magician. 2 will make The High Priestess sensitive and calm. The Ruler of The High Priestess is the moon and is placed in the card for you to see. Binging ruled by the moon The High Priestess is sensitive like I said and she is also very intuitive. She tells you to follow what your gut says and what's in your heart not your head. The High Priestess holds a scroll in her hand that says TORA; this is the Jewish holy book. The High Priestess holds secret knowledge and can keep secrets under lock and key. The crown she wears makes the connection to the Egyptian Goddess Isis. Isis is the feminine archetype for creation -the goddess of fertility and motherhood. She has gone by many names and played many roles in history and mythology - as goddess and female creator. Her name literally means female of throne, i.e. Queen of the
throne. Isis is also connected to magic. The Pillars that The High Priestess sits between are a reference to King Solomon's Temple. The Letters "B" and "J" Stand for Jachin and Boaz. Boaz ("in strength") was on the left, Jachin ("he establishes") on the right.

Behind The High Priestess there is a cloth that has a diagram of The Tree of Life. The Tree of Life is represented in several examples of sacred geometry, and is central in particular to Kabbalah, the mystic study of the Torah. The Tree of life also appears in the Minor Arana in the ten of Pentacles. The High Priestess personality is that of mysterious, spiritual, She can be aloof and spend time alone to meditate. Listen to your dreams cause they may help you solve your issues. Looking deeper into a situation is needed when she comes up in a reading


When The High Priestess is blocked it means that you are having troubles connecting to your emotions you feel disconnected but it's not because you are by nature you may be going through a hard time. You have a hard time connecting to your intuition and your dreams provide you no insight. You're not seeing your potential and not growing. You don't understand the deeper meanings in life. You may also be denying your intuition and or not trusting your gut. When reversed the moon at her base is placed at top, this signifies the moon’s rulership over her at an extreme. She may become over emotional as well.
