The High Priestess Tarot Card  DESCRIPTION: illustration, colors, and symbolism.

  • The High Priestess Tarot Card shows a woman sitting on a cubic stone between two pillars at Solomon’s temple. The B on the black pillar stands for Boaz. It is the pillar of strength. The J on the white pillar stands for Jachin. the pillar of the establishment. The pillars and black and white colors symbolize the duality of nature: masculine and feminine, good and evil, negative and positive. They are stating that knowledge and acceptance of duality are required to enter this sacred space. The woman is between the two pillars and this suggests that she acts as a mediator between the depths of reality. She symbolizes the third pillar or the path between. Her belief is that both pillars are equal. There is knowledge to be learned in both worlds. In her hand, she holds a scroll with the word Tora on it. It is a reference to the Jewish scripture and an anagram for the tarot. The scroll is partly covered. This suggests that sacred knowledge is both explicit and implicit. And, you can only see it when you’re ready to look beyond the material realm. The High Priestess wears a blue robe and a horned diadem (or crown). Both of them are a symbol of her divine knowledge and her status as a divine ruler. The cross on her robe represents the four directions and the balancing of the four selves: body, heart, mind, and spirit. The cross on her chest represents her internalization of power. That is why she is holding the scroll and not reading it: she already knows its contents. The crescent moon at her feet also symbolizes her connection with the divine feminine, her intuition and subconscious mind, and the natural cycles of the moon. The veil of pomegranates symbolizes abundance. The veil hides secrets behind her. And it serves to keep casual onlookers out. Only the initiated may enter.
  • Numerology: The High Priestess Tarot Card is numbered two. It is the second tarot card of the Major Arcana tarot deck.- and associated with the planet Moon. One eventually attracts another and therefore we have Two. Two is balance. The High Priestess balances the opposites: the intuitive and the rational, inner and outer, and the hidden and the revealed. In numerology, two is also unity. It’s polarity, two ones trying to understand each other.
  • Wikipedia: In the creation of the Rider–Waite tarot deck, the Popess was changed into The High Priestess,  the card was connected to the ancient cult of Astarte
