For the week of January 27 2013, I am using the Russian Tarot of St. Petersburg, illustrated by Yury Shakov (U.S. Games Systems Inc.)
My first reaction is that I am apparently dealing with energy at a "higher" or "deeper" level this week. I view Major Arcana cards like The High Priestess as symbolizing significant aspects of our sojourn through life.
Secondly, to me, The High Priestess is about wisdom, perception, intuition, hidden knowledge, and spiritual awareness or enlightenment. The element I associate with this card is Water. Astrologically, in the Golden Dawn system, this card is linked with the Moon.
Reversed, The High Priestess can suggest a situation in which no clear answers are available, or indicate an inability to see and understand something at more than a superficial level. My intuition may be hindered or clouded in some way. I may fail to perceive the deeper truth or complete truth about someone or something. The reversed High Priestess might also suggest that I am having trouble keeping something a secret or having difficulty "keeping my own counsel." There is a saying where I live: "You don't have to tell everything you know." Perhaps The High Priestess reversed is reminding me of this. I will think twice when I am tempted to share knowledge that perhaps would best be kept hidden.
