In this series, we are comparing cards from different decks to get an overall understanding of a card's meaning.
You can start at the beginning with The Fool or go to the previous post The Magician.
For this comparison, I have used these decks: The Steampunk Tarot, Everyday Witch Tarot, The Housewives of Tarot, and The Gilded Tarot.
The High Priestess makes me think "Keeper of the secrets". Intuitions, mysteries, wisdom, and knowledge are all words to describe this card.
In all of these images you can see that The High Priestess seems to know something the rest of us don't. In The Steampunk Tarot, she holds her hand over the Crystal Ball with a sly look on her face, like she sees it all. In The Gilded Tarot she floats above the water, between the earth and sky, like she is the being that connects them.
She gives the air of freedom, as if her knowledge is power and she doesn't have to worry.
Her higher knowledge also gives her an air of mystery. Like she's keeping the secrets of the universe.
I hope you're finding this way of teaching helpful!
Thanks for stopping by!
Next up we will discuss The Empress (coming soon).
