The High Priestess


I study the tarot. I have a fair number of decks, but one of my favourites is my Decameron deck which was inspired by an almost-700 year old literary work of the same name by Giovanni Boccaccio.

It is quite dirty. But profound in its wisdom.

I like to sit and shuffle my decks every so often just to say “hello” to them and to explore some of the cards. As I was shuffling yesterday morning, “The High Priestess” presented herself to me twice. I took this double appearance as message from Spirit.

This is an auspicious Major Arcana card urging me to connect with my intuition and to not allow others to influence me in ways that are not true to myself.

She also urges me to face the sides of me that I am terrified of facing, to explore my shadow sides without fear or shame; only I carry the key that will open up and release all of my hidden facets and charms.
