Welcome to part 3 of my 22 part Tarot Meanings Deep Dive series – each week we explore ONE major arcana card and uncover it’s secrets, symbols and messages.
Today we’re diving into The High Priestess – perhaps the most mysterious and secretive card in your Tarot deck!
You might have already seen this video because I originally uploaded it way back in February 2021. After making this video I felt inspired to do a whole series – it just took me 7 months to get my shit together!
Have your pen and notebook handy, grab yourself a bevy and get comfy….
The book I mention in this video is Tarot for Transformation by Andy Matzner (a great Tarot book full of journal prompts and Tarot wisdom – I highly recommend it!)
Intuition, dreams, inner mysteries, psychic realms, the subconscious & unconscious, cycles, secrets.

The dark side of The High Priestess
Destructive secrets, hiding something, gate keeping as a form of power (not protection).
1. The Subconscious
The High Priestess guards the gateway to the subconscious/unconscious – our mysterious, hidden realms that even we don’t fully understand. Dreams, hypnosis, automatic writing, meditation and shamanic journeying are all are ways to access the subconscious parts of ourselves.
♥ What methods help me tap into the hidden realms of my mind?
The High Priestess reminds us to honour our intuition, as it is the voice of the soul! Our intuition connects us to our inner wisdom and to the unseen realms of energy and spirit – when we honour our intuition, we move through the world with more ease and purpose.
♥ What is my relationship with my intuition like?
♥ How can I honour my intuition more in daily life?
3. Cycles & Rhythms
The moon, the seasons, the menstrual cycle, night and day, birth and death – everything is cyclical, everything has a rhythm to it. The High Priestess wisely reminds us that trying to fight the natural cycles and rhythms will result in imbalances being created, and she encourages us to honour our rhythms whenever we can.
♥ What cycles and rhythms can I identify in my life?
♥ How can I better honour my natural energy cycles?
The Wisdom of The High Priestess
The High Priestess reminds you that there is more to you than you think! Your intuition is the key that will unlock the secrets of your soul and unconscious self and by honouring our natural cycles and rhythms, we can tap into our true power.
