II The High Priestess
LISTEN FOR IT
After the Magician’s show, you are a little smarter, minus a penny or two. You haven’t graduated, but you are at least ready to learn. Sooner or later, you find a noble teacher. They probably know a LOT you don’t know. Including exactly how much of it you need to know and how much you don’t. She has the wisdom of what you will do with the information she gives you.
In the first reading I received, I remember this card very clearly. It was from the Aquarian Deck, and the art for the High Priestess was dee-licious! I involuntarily blurted out “I want one!” I didn’t know if that meant I wanted the deck, or the priestess, or both. She stuns us that way when we meet her. She arrests our attention with sheer curiosity. This is our beginning of the awareness of the relationship of the opposites. Sitting between pillars of black and white on a grey slab - she studies the experience of these dualities. She represents transformation from many angles. The Snake sheds skin to grow. The Butterfly comes from the dissolution of the caterpillar. She keeps the Moon half drawn behind her curtain, because it transforms us as well, and she is trying to teach us how to handle it. Visions, dreams, intuition, and plain old gut feelings are her classroom. “You better listen to her,” was Ashley’s advice on how to find her.
II is the number of the High Priestess. Seeing light we see Shadow, and the priestess is your first teacher in how the two play.
