The High Priestess (Card II) - Basic Meanings


The High Priestess, numbered II (this is two in Roman Numerals), is about an inner knowing that makes you smile. A whispered wisdom like the susurrus sound of wind in the trees, beckoning you to return to the land in which you belong, to come home to your heaven on earth, home to your inner peace, to do the work to get there. The pause of self-reflection before you go out again to do the thing. Wisdom is knowing what to say, when to say it, how to say it, and when to say nothing.


If the High Priestess is in the obstacle position in a spread then it likely means you are being too cagey,  trying too hard to be the wiser bigger person, to the point where you are betraying your own self. There is sacred silence which is good from time to time.  Then there is being silenced and staying silent which is an act of violence.  Speak up. And keep speaking up until you are heard. 


If the High Priestess is in the solution position in a spread then it likely means that now is a time to engage in sacred silence, to check in with yourself, perhaps even to invite someone else to check in with themselves. Meditation, prayer, and reflection are needed here. Lead by example. Wait to speak up. It's okay to say, I need think about this first.


Using NO pictures is on purpose so that these meanings can be more easily applied to any Tarot deck using the Smith-Waite system, aka: Rider-Waite Smith (RWS).
