The High Priestess

Meaning

The High Priestess is a reminder that you don't know everything in a situation. It is possible that someone is withholding the information from you, or that you have not been given all of the facts. You are seeing this card which means you are the one that needs to employ your own devices to get to the truth of the matter. The High Priestess is very spiritual, but not bogged down by fantasy, she deals with facts, but you may not have them all at this time. This is not an action card, but a passive, mulling it over card, and you may have the answers within.

Symbolism

The High Priestess sits on her throne surrounded by the truth. But, if you look closely, she is veiled and sitting pretty. This card says there is a lot to the situation that does not exactly meet the eye. She is a mysterious one! When the High Priestess appears, know that there is more to the situation that you are unaware of. Secrets are paramount when this card appears, and you are best to go within to seek answers. With secrets playing a role here, know there is much happening behind the scenes of your situation that you are unaware of, and a female energy may be at the center of it all.
