» The High Priestess – The Mysterious Woman of the Occult

High PriestessThe second tarot card  – and, thus, the second person we meet on the Fool’s journey – is the mysterious High Priestess, a beautiful, veiled woman sitting on a throne between two pillars under a bright moon.

The High Priestess is the polar opposite of the Magician, a creature of the night where he stands in the sun. The Fool, his arms full of the four tools presented to him by the Magician – the cup, the sword, the pentacle and the chalice – is confused, and unsure what to do with them.

The high priestress in tarot

She has the lunar crescent at her feet, a horned diadem on her head, with a globe in the middle place, and a large solar cross on her breast. The scroll in her hands is inscribed with the word Tora, signifying the Greater Law, the Secret Law and the second sense of the Word. It is partly covered by her mantle, to show that some things are implied and some1 spoken. She is seated between the white and black pillars-J. and B.-of the mystic Temple and the veil of the Temple is behind her: it is embroidered with palms and pomegranates.
