Week at a Glance: The High Priestess

The purpose of drawing a "Week at a Glance" card is to get a sense of the sort of energy, circumstances, or personal qualities I might need to be aware of during the upcoming week.

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 card is:  

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.


  1. That is a gorgeous card! How funny that I happened to find your page because I used to speak Russian when I was a little girl because I happened to have many Russian friends and because I am virtually obsessed with the High Priestess card. I always feel such good energy from it, and I love your description of it. I definitely gained more insight on what the High Priestess can mean when it's reversed. Thank you for posting this awesome blog! I am definitely subscribing. :)

    1. Привет! How great to hear from you, Nicole. I was drawn to this deck because I studied Russian in college and I love Russian literature and history. The Russian Tarot of St. Petersburg was one of my very first Tarot decks. :)
