Sun and Moon Tarot (U.S. Games, 2010) flaunts her stuff.
She is rather more in-your-face and raunchy than most versions of this archetype. She stands, hip-cocked, between two large pillars, a hand on each, and her feet rising up from foamy waters. In front of her is a book on a tripod, and in the background are palm trees silhouetted by the light of a crescent moon. Her dress is elegant, if rather diaphonous - she's showing plenty of leg! She also wears a crescent moon tiara in her hair.
I have to say, this super-elegant High Priestess seems more Hollywood than deep Mysteries. Still, I like the way that her hands on the pillars suggest a communing with the wisdom of ages. Her actually standing in water emphasises her connection with the unconscious. And the crescent moon and starry sky suggest her connection with the Goddess and the idea of being guided by the divine.
What I take from this is the suggestion to listen to my intuition today with clients, but also to stay connected with the underlying principles of the discipline. I may have to negotiate choppy emotions, my own and/or those of others, and a calm, steady approach will probably work best. Now, to go put that into effect...
I am grateful for the inner whispers that keep me on track.
