THE HIGH PRIESTESS
This week’s Purple Swan Tarot Blog Post card is THE HIGH PRIESTESS. This card symbolizes the ability to know and understand the duality in the world and ourselves. Light & dark, Male & Female, Yin & Yang, Black & White, what is external as opposed to what is internal. But with THE HIGH PRIESTESS, the Feminine, intuitive, the secretive, the hidden, the shadow, the internal, the hidden and veiled side of our nature is revealed and brought to the forefront. She is the Maiden in the Moon… young, seductive, beautiful and mysterious. She is desired by many but truly known and possessed by no one but herself.
THE HIGH PRIESTESS holds the key to the ‘Book of Knowledge’. She possesses all knowledge and reveals that which is hidden. Only by accessing one’s intuition and going inside oneself can we hope to access this knowledge and find the answers we seek. In order to do this, one must be willing to be still. To seek a quiet place where one can be alone with ones thoughts and feelings. To meditate. To be so still, quiet and reflective that they are able to hear the rustling of the wind and the small still voice of the angels and ones soul. In doing so, you can gain entrance to your intuition and hear the whispered answers to the questions your soul seeks. THE HIGH PRIESTESS holds the knowledge of the ancients and the answers to all questions asked. She holds the key as well as guards the gate of wisdom. She knows what is behind the many layered veils of illusion that we call life.
Yes, she holds the key to the gate which accesses the answers you seek. But, can you quiet yourself, slow your breath, stop your activities, and calm your mind long enough to find her within yourself? Only in doing so will you be able to peer behind the veils of illusion and peek at the pages of ‘The Book of Knowledge’ she holds in order to find the guidance and answers you seek. Will you free up the time, make the space, access the stillness inside yourself in order to gain access through the gate and to the answers you seek? This is what THE HIGH PRIESTESS is offering you this week; But only if you agree to meet her terms. Will you accept her offer? Will you open the gate and part the veils?
