It is said that the Tarot High Priestess is the messenger of the moon, pious and silent, but very alert and intelligent, and a symbol of wisdom and intuition. In contrast to the Magician’s passion and initiative, the High Priestess only prayed silently in the dead of night with a scripture in her hand, just like the Yin and Yang in traditional Chinese culture.
From the picture, we can see that the priestess is sitting on a stone bench, with Tora written on the scroll on her hand, one of the laws, which represents her inner knowledge and insight, the difference of length and breadth, the distinction between good and evil, and the mysterious magic, quietly waiting for the right time to act and give clear instructions. The pillars next to her, a black one and a white one, also implies her strong sense of length, rational thinking and judgment. The white crown and white skirt symbolize the purity of her heart and the requirement for purity. The green leaves and fruit on the back symbolize her femininity, loving and serene, while also suggesting her strong intuitive power and judgment. The pomegranate suggests the pomegranate seeds swallowed by the Queen of the Underworld (Persephone) of Greek mythology for uninterrupted marriage. The moon in the corner of her skirt is also a symbol of wisdom and intuition.
If the magician is emitting masculinity, then the Priestess is the representative of femininity. She highlights her calmness in silence and her wisdom in silence. It is also said that the Priestess’ heart is contradictory, just like sitting between two black and white pillars, silent on the surface but passionate inside. In the wandering between black and white, day and night, good and evil, the Priestess savoreds the meaning of existence and feels the vicissitudes of the life and the world. Perhaps this is what makes her wise and insightful.
