High Priestess: Tarot Card

Direct position

The card indicates that very soon information will appear, thanks to which a person will look at his life with different eyes. The High Priestess card shows calmness when a person withdraws into himself. He wants to be in a calm environment, but not in order to sort out his affairs, but in order to just be in silence for a while. The solution of issues, of course, will come by itself, but later.

The person to whom this card falls, as a rule, develops his talents and individual knowledge. He achieves what he wants through spiritual wisdom and patience. It can be very persistent and smart. Common sense is about the High Priestess.

A person becomes more self-confident, he has intuition, understanding, deep consciousness. And even the knowledge that he has known for a long time can help in solving problems that have arisen.

Reversed position

Reversed, the High Priestess card shows the lack of intelligence and problems that arise unexpectedly. A person has a streak of failure, his dreams and desires are unrealistic. As a result, this leads to a depressed mood.

The fortuneteller’s knowledge is very superficial. The High Priestess card warns that it is necessary to exclude all rash actions and show your emotions less.

It’s just that a person can do a lot of stupid things, in some way show his ignorance and megalomania. And indeed, it tends to be emotionally unbalanced under the influence of the card inverted. His judgments are wrong, his thinking is clouded. He himself becomes afraid - to make a decision. But vanity and self-confidence should beware.

Priestess: Meaning in love and relationships

Direct position

The card speaks of an unimportant reputation in his personal life. It can be a secret love with unexpressed feelings or a platonic relationship. The map indicates some kind of uncertain relationship or hidden from the public.

Such relationships can be called qualitative when there is a deep connection between partners. And their strong feelings, as a rule, can be known at a distance, and even half a word. People in love are able to understand their partners by their eyes, and even guess what gift a loved one will make for a birthday or some other holiday. And this really happens.

The card also characterizes the feeling of loneliness, which is associated with asceticism and mysticism. The person who gets this card is very patient and self-confident. She is ready for long waits, and often remains completely alone. She does not lose her independence and inner balance, she listens to her inner voice.

Reversed position

The card speaks of a lack of intuition, which means that a person will be guided by logic. A man may have problems in relations with the opposite sex, and a woman may have sexual lack of demand, difficult childbirth and diseases.

The fortuneteller who fell out the card defines this person as an impatient, insensitive and ignorant person. He has a clouded perception, he is not able to empathize with people.

In moments when it is necessary to show his love and feelings for a loved one, he shows rigidity and severity. It becomes easier for him to avoid this or that situation than to make a decision. Since a person is not insightful enough, he has a lot of problems that he could not even foresee.

Priestess: Meaning in Situation and Question

Direct position

The card says that promising things await a person that may be related to scientific activities and education. Just don’t force things. It is necessary to take any action only when everything will turn out favorably.

The lasso of the High Priestess will help a person to understand the inner world, become more insightful and focused. The high priestess is associated with science and artistic creativity. A person, when disposed to a situation, wants to acquire new knowledge, improve qualifications and professional literacy.

Reversed position

The card means that the situation has many hidden motives and events that cannot be judged objectively. Especially at the moment when a person is guessing. Competitors may suddenly appear, people who want to “sit” you.

Also, a person can become capricious, unsure of himself, he will have doubts and worries, unreasonable fantasies. He may become fatalistic. In a situation, he is not ready to make independent decisions, and as a rule, he hopes for the mercy of fate and believes in miracles.

Priestess: Meaning of the card of the day

The Tarot card says that a person needs to listen to the inner voice and act according to the situation. On this day, you should rely on intuition. You should not look for explanations and justifications for those questions that you do not want to accept.

It is necessary to appreciate the time, and every second of this day. Be with yourself, turn to your inner voice. Be sure to show kindness to the people around you, keep your mind and feelings clear. You do not need to be active in your affairs, it is better to wait. The card can hide secrets and inner wisdom, as well as remind a person that he forgot about something important.

Priestess: Card Advice

The Tarot card encourages a person to observe himself, as well as the people around him. It is very important to monitor the situation in order to make the right decision. And even if a person is doing the right thing, he may not give himself an account of this.

While a person has not yet been able to understand his feelings, it is not advisable for him to take rash and quick actions. Do not rush things, all good things will happen.

And even if it seems that everything is going well, still do not rush to drastic actions, be vigilant and reasonable. It is better to go slowly and sedately, as they say: “quieter you go, you will continue.”
