The meaning of the card The High Priestess

This card evokes the evolution of things and events, which is done without noise and without fuss. Not very concerned by material events, she is more oriented towards personal evolution. It sends the message that if the events do not materialize it is because the consultant or their projects still need maturation and reflection. It expresses the time that is needed to develop a project that will change because the thoughts of the consultant will also evolve. It conveys the message that the consultant must master their emotions and imagination which will prevent them from acting in a reckless way. She advises us not to indulge in secrets even if the temptation is strong. It encourages silence and to remain withdrawn in all circumstances. In a draw, she expresses that time is the best ally of the consultant. Trying to rush things would not do any good. The wisdom is to show a serene and intelligent patience.

Upright, this card bodes a rather quiet existence devoid of unforeseen and fantastic changes. Life follows its course in a serene atmosphere oriented towards meditation and reflection. It evokes an inner harmony that reflects positively on the life of the consultant. The relationships are harmonious and tinged with reassuring constancy. It expresses that prudence and patience are the best assets that will allow the realization of a desire or a project. She advises to use the waiting time to refine a project and program our choices consciously.

The High Priestess drawn inverted

In reverse, this card expresses a difficult expectation for the consultant and generates misunderstanding. It expresses a silence, a lack of news, a heavy distance, and a lack of communication in relationships. Just like when it was upright, the popess expresses the constructive patience as far back as it expresses the passivity which, for the moment generates immobilism and a wait. The inverted popess indicates blockages which are often due to a lack of preparation on a project or of not seeing a situation objectively. The wisdom is to oblige oneself to act, to deepen a project, and to clarify a situation.
