You are The High Priestess
Science, Wisdom, Knowledge, Education.
The High Priestess is the card of knowledge, instinctual, supernatural, secret knowledge. She holds scrolls of arcane information that she might, or might not reveal to you. The moon crown on her head as well as the crescent by her foot indicates her willingness to illuminate what you otherwise might not see, reveal the secrets you need to know. The High Priestess is also associated with the moon however and can also indicate change or fluxuation, particularily when it comes to your moods.

Thanks to Rhinoa who had this on her blog first! I don't often get the High Priestess for myself, so I am happy to see it. Usually I get the Empress, or the Heirophant, so this is a change. I consider this a card of intuition, and heaven knows I need to slow down and walk with the season as it changes, instead of having things heaped on me. I'm not complaining, I'm interested to see that the feelings I've been having this month that I haven't been getting my walks in,so I haven't been in nature as much, are having a trickle-down effect of making me feel off-balance. It doesn't help that it has rained so much this summer that getting out has been a challenge. Walking puts me in the world though, and into myself, so I can hear my thoughts better, as well as see all of nature around me. The High Priestess reminds me to get quiet - yes, the Olympics are fun! But I am at my limit now, and am glad they are ending this weekend. It's hard to have the tv on so much, and even though the competitive part of me enjoys the athleticism and striving to be the best, I find I am taking breaks more often now. I am reading in the evenings while the games are on in the background!
The High Priestess reminds me to pay attention to the quiet voice within, and to find time to be still, so that I can create, I can write, so that I can know what my next movement forward in my life is. There are challenges at work that are pushing me to my limit right now, and it's hard to keep my balance when I want to punch the lights out of my co-worker, who is becoming my arch-nemesis (and me to her, I'm sure!) and even though I know I'm better than her, and much more competent at my job than she is, she makes our entire section look sloppy. The High Priestess reminds me to step back and detach myself, to look after myself and ignore this person. Be smart, the High Priestess says.
This doesn't mean the High Priestess only comes when there is trouble to avoid! Most of the time she comes when the questioner needs to listen to the other voice we all have, the one that puts things together and can look into the future and know the probable outcome of actions, so we can pick the best option forward. She is mysterious, because she knows things intuitively, and because we are open to the unanswerable at this time. It's one of my favourite cards in the tarot deck. I often thought that I would like to be a priestess, though I know now that I would get too annoyed at being bothered by questions and helping others all the time, which a priestess has to do. I much prefer to study quietly and learn and come to understand some of the patterns and mysteries of the world, which this card means! The other card I love is the Hermit, which is also a difficult path because it means I can't follow the ordinary ones laid out for people, that I am forging my own path and bringing back knowledge for others. So, I know I have written less here this month and visited my favourite blogs less than usual, but there is so much stress with work right now that reading is my refuge, as always, my safety net. There is something about reading that is so healing! So learn from this. What is the lesson for me? At the very least, I have to remember to get out of the office at lunchtime so I can escape the negative influence of this co-worker. There is something about green trees and the wind on my face that is so healing. And since this conflict is revealing the short-comings of my workplace in general, I have been left alone to deal with her, so I no longer see the office environment as always supportive.
And since we live the tarot cards in our lives every day, what card are you? which card do you instinctively like? And if you do this quiz, which card are you right now? Does it fit somewhere in your life right now?
