The High Priestess is the intuitive guide, a prophet, the great mother. She holds wisdom from beyond the veil; in fact, she is the guardian of the veil. This Priestess is connected to the moon in all its aspects and she is the keeper of ancient lore.
Deep, mysterious, fluid, and seductive, she is the embodiment of the feminine. However, she has found an inner balance of both female and male energies; the dance truly exists within her.
The High Priestess holds all authority, but does so with compassion, love, and integrity. She is a seer, an illuminated light, a speaker of truths. She calls on you now to rise up, to go within, and to trust in your soul.
When the High Priestess appears on your path it is time to go deep within, to sink your feet into your experience, and to connect to what is true and meaningful in your life. Take this card as a sign to step back and clear your space, to get quiet, meditate, and listen to the guidance that comes through you.
Dreams hold a special importance right now; pay attention to them. Allow your creative juices to rise up and to shine bright, let your dreams guide the way. Give yourself permission to not only hear your inner voice, but to trust it, and to follow it's guidance. It will not lead you astray!
This card speaks of equilibrium in all aspects of your life. Seek balance; find it with meditation, yoga, and expressing your creative energies. Honor all that is deep within you, including the unknown, which you might fear at first. But rest assured all parts of you come from love and when you honor and find balance, all the parts exist in harmony.
Move into a comfortable position with a straight spine, either lying flat on your back or sitting straight up with your back against the wall. Relax, slow down and deepen your breathing. Let your skin soften, and your muscles relax. Be still! Ask your mind to take a rest; this is "no mind time".
Once you have reached a sweet space of relaxation, close your eyes, and start to focus your attention on the base of your spine. Visualize the color red as you breathe in and out. See it get bigger, brighter, and stronger. Take 5 deep breaths like this. Then let it go.
