Tarot Card of the Week: The High Priestess


SEPTEMBER 20, 2021


This is a good time to turn your attention within, and attend to your inner world. A time for meditation and cultivating the inner aspect of your spiritual life. This is reinforced by today's full moon in Pisces, as Pisces rules the tools we apply in spiritual practice.

When The Priestess appears, we are being asked to pay close attention to our intuition and let it guide us. Practices like meditation and prayer help us quiet the mind's usual noise, align our intentions with a higher purpose, and become better able to hear the still, small voices of conscience and intuition.

This is a time when we receive messages from the unconscious, but the unconscious does not communicate in words or in rational thoughts. It communicates in mysterious ways through feelings, through symbols and signs, through the images and situations that come to us in dreams, through sudden moments of clarity.

Keep a dream journal this week. Set an intention before falling asleep that you will remember your dreams, and write them down as soon as you wake up. The best way to do this is with old-fashioned paper and pen, as it engages the brain in a different way than screens, keyboards, and devices.

Set aside quiet time during the day for reflection and contemplation. For those in 12-step programs, this means engaging in the 11th-step practices of prayer and meditation, seeking to improve your conscious contact with a higher power of your understanding.

The flip side of this card — which comes into play when your inner and outer worlds are out of sync — is being caught up in superficial things, being out of touch with your conscience and intuition, being disconnected from your higher self. If you never slow down enough to tune into your inner world, how can you expect to receive and understand the messages of your unconscious? The Priestess calls on us to look at the places where we may be in denial, repressing something, ignoring something, and indulging in behavioral patterns that take us away from our highest purpose.

Now, more than ever, you need to hear and listen to the wisdom of your inner High Priestess.
