I just picked up my tarot deck an out of all the cards I picked out the high priestess AGAIN!
This must be significant!
So I will dwell on it.
I picked another card and will reveal that too.
I try to be explicitly honest about the cards I draw from the deck.
I think I have been completely honest so far.
Like an oracle of time I am your compass and oracle and the moon at your feet..
Okay I need to do a web search now because I am depending on Biddy (whom I love) to do my initial interpretation...
Because I picked this card twice it means the powers willed me to pick it and is established.
I promise I would slay my soul if I ever deceived you on this matter.
The High Priestess is also known as Persephone, Isis, the Corn Maiden and Artemis.
She sits at the gate before the great Mystery, as indicated by the Tree of Life in the background. She sits between the darkness and the light, represented by the pillars of Solomon’s temple, which suggests it is she who is the mediator of the passage into the depth of reality.
The tapestry hung between the pillars keeps the casual onlookers out and allows only those initiated to enter. The pomegranates on the tapestry are sacred to Persephone. They are a symbol of duty (because Persephone ate a pomegranate seed in the underworld which forced her to return every year). The blue robe the Priestess is wearing is a symbol of knowledge. She is wearing the crown of Isis symbolizing the Triple Goddess. The solar cross on her breast is a symbol of balance between male and female.
In her lap, she holds the half-revealed and half-concealed Torah, representative of the esoteric and the esoteric teachings and higher knowledge. The moon under her left foot shows her dominion over pure intuition. The palm indicates fertility of the mind and the cube on which she sits is the earth. The planet associated with the High Priestess is the Moon.
A few typos in the interpretation fixed/edited. (Biddy please use a good spell check)
It appears I am a hell-bound spirit, this enables me to be free and love at my own will and not be a slave of an intolerant super being.
That explains a lot. I may delve more into the meaning of the high priestess soon.
There are no reversed cards in my life so that idea is superfluous.
Maybe my inner self is a girl although I feel completely male.
Wisdom is not lacking in my psyche as I have had to grow and change.
Music is my inside.
Then I picked another card today.
I picked the card "high priestess" twice after really shuffling the deck quite well but not extremely well.
This all baffles me, after picking the high priestess a second time today I picked, the queen of swords.
Got to look that one up.
The Queen of Swords sits high on her throne with a stern look on her face indicating that no-one can fool her. In her right hand, she comfortably holds a sword pointed to the sky, and her left hand extends as if she has something to offer to others. Behind her is a spring sky, different from the winter settings on most other Swords cards, and this has an emergence and growth quality to it. The sky is clear, representing her clarity of mind as she considers matters of the intellect. The bird above her head symbolizes the mind’s ability to soar above day-to-day issues in order to arrive at appropriate solutions.
The queen entertains angels at her side and they fly her way high into the clouds. She reaches her hand out in welcome to heavenly spirits and she wears the clouds like a cloak, no one can perceive her lofty bird because her heart is sharp and sure and she changes shape at will and mind in seasons and rivers of wisdom flow from her natural beauty that transforms into purity and life. A bell at her wrist rings and time obeys her every desire.
