What Does The High Priestess Tarot Card Mean

The High Priestess sits between two pillars, symbolizing the temple of Isis or the ancient Hebrew Temple in Jerusalem – the dwelling place of God on Earth. The letters “B” and “J” on the pillars represent “Boaz” and “Jakin,” the names of the two main pillars in the Jerusalem Temple.

The dark “Boaz” represents mystery and esotericism, while “Jakin” represents action and consciousness. It’s worth noting that the letters convey a sense of reversal: “B” is white, and “J” is black, like the two dots in the yin-yang symbol, suggesting that dualistic opposition is an illusion, and each extreme harbors its opposite.

A veil hangs between the two pillars, indicating that we are barred from entering the halls of wisdom.

On her lap, you can see the High Priestess holding a scroll inscribed with “Tora,” referring to the Jewish Law, the “Torah” in English. This particular spelling makes the word a variant of “Taro” (Tarot).

The Torah holds great mystical significance – it is the living word of God, existing between the universes, containing a shadow of all true beings. The scroll held by the High Priestess is partially concealed within her robe, implying a higher knowledge sealed off from those of lower understanding. It can be understood as a revelation accessible to us only in the distorted forms of myth and dream.

The High Priestess tarot card suggests that you should trust your intuition because there are things you may not see at this point. This card is closely related to the moon; she is the guardian of truth, a spiritual presence that doesn’t exist in reality.

It benefits the study of metaphysics, reminding us to use intuition, to listen to intuition, and to be more suitable for stillness than action. The power of this card will only be latent and not overt, hence another meaning is mystery.
