High priestess

by April
(Queensland Australia)





No matter what the meaning is of it in a deck I have used or has been used on me the High Priestess everyone sees it as me. I know why and I wrote the story before but didn't realise I had written it under my page name and not my real name so I don't think it applies but that's me always getting things stuffed up. I have always been attracted to the card and have always seen great strength, responsibility, great love and magic and it always reminds me of the lives I have lived. Born with full knowledge of nearly all my lives including my first. Many of them I was a high priestess. I am not in this life. I chose not to be but chose to instead to open a page and help others with the knowledge that I had and am still learning, My Goddess guides me and to me she is my High Priestess. It's funny that I look at the card and get great comfort from it. To me it is a card of hope and the struggles that we as women go through every day of all different cultures and that she watches from her throne sending us the gifts we need to survive as women and give us pride as women and the tools to make our lives better if we just believe in ourselves and depending on who it is for in a reading she always tells me what is needed to be heard. That is what this beautiful, knowledgable card means to me. It may nit be it's actual meaning but for me that is what is in my heart.

The High Priestess

by April Williams
(North Rockhampton Queensland Australia)

I have always been drawn to this card along with one other, Strength. I was born with full knowledge of very nearly all my lives and in all I was always a high priestess or died just before I became one. I lived many lives and even remember my first as an animal in Egypt. I have always been a warrior and lead people sometimes having my own kingdom. I have in this life put the high priestess away and tried to lead a normal quiet life so those who served me and would die for me could have the lives they deserved and earned over and over with their sacrifices they made. I have finally found out why I was a high priestess but I do not wish to share that as that is still amazing to me and the people around me who have awakened to their lives. I always felt to be a high priestess that apart from love you had to be strong to make the choices you must for the good of all especially those who follow you and whom you love so much and have to make a decision that no matter what you choose they will get hurt. I still find my Goddess has not left me and by making the decision to release them of any vows or oaths to me and vowing to them that it is my turn to look after them as they looked after me throughout so many lives and battles and so many good times. I am writing about 1 life in particular that doesn't leave me, If it gets published or not is another thing but at least I will have it there for those who wish to read it. My first memory of it was when I was a little girl and we were visiting my grandparents and grandma had a strawberry patch and they had only 1 entrance into the place and it was a door that was like the door Mr Ed had in his stable. My brother and I, he was younger, would sneak down to this patch in the wee hours of the morning but the doors had locks on them and they tell me they tried everything to find a way to stop me from opening these locks. I can't do it now but apparently my grandfather stayed awake one night and watched my brother and I get up and sneak to the door. He watched as I would with my mind unlock the locks and then my brother and I would go down to the strawberry patch and eat the ripe ones. I always remember though that the strawberry patch would bring back memories of far off places and distant lands and far off times but I was never scared for I had my brother with me for I knew though 3 years younger he would protect me like he always did, He at 3 always made me face my fears. Granddad now knew what was happening and he had an idea. We got up this one morning and he watched me as I tried with all my might to unlock the locks but couldn't because he had wrapped around and around each lock a piece of no.8 wire and it was the only thing that stopped me. To this day I love puzzles and the Great Strawberry Thief Mystery was solved. Granddad watched me after that as I grew and always said I was special and with my 3 brothers together we were something more special, I never understood until the past few months and I am 54 this yea,r what he meant, It was love. The love we have for each other that binds us 4 and our strength and my lives as a high priestess that made me who I am and bound us to each other. Today I am a simple house wife who does readings and shares the love she has for others with everyone around the world and giving advice to those who need help from those lives and this life to help as many as I can. I may not be a high priestess in this life but whenever her card turns up they always automatically say it is me. I have seen a lot in my lives and felt a lot too and seen things that shouldn't exist. But I think that the strawberry patch is symbolic of my life. I had fun, found I was different and never normal but craved to be normal and knew I would always have someone to love and protect me and I will do the same and that I wasn't invincible. I had limitations and every one has something that can stop them from going on further from doing something wrong. My grandfather the night he used the wire was the 3rd night he watched us. He got my parents up to watch us and see and they tried everything they could think of to stop me and on the third night showed me I was capable of being stopped and that even in a child arrogance can be stopped by a piece of wire. Just something so small and simple. I look upon that holiday and remember it well always for we were stealing and stopping others from having the best strawberries I have ever tasted in my life. My dad said that was the night I developed a conscience. It still is with me and says that it is my own punishment. But I am grateful for it because it started my memories and taught me so much at 5. 50 years later that night changed the course of my life for I would've gone on to become a high priestess again for it still calls me. My beliefs, my trust, my respect, my faith, my honour, my kindness, my generosity and most of all my love for all who come to me for they take these things with tem which I give them freely. I may not be a high priestess but My goddess is always with me and she gives me the strength to carry on and do what I must in this life to prepare for the next. I loved being a high priestess. Not because of the power but because I was with my goddess and it made me one with not my servants or coven members but my friends and the loves of my lives, I'm glad they have their lives and are happy and I know if I need them it is of their own free will and not an order that they come if I call, Being a high priestess for so many lives was an honour and I am glad I had the strength to do what I needed to do. But I know there is more in store for me and in my heart is the teachings of the high priestess and the power of love to get me through. No matter what happens I have learnt so much and when the high priestess appears there is another lesson to learn and I must do what is bring asked of me and I will always love my Goddess and the Gods and this beautiful world we live in for my Goddess is my high priestess. She has given me so much but to have it I had to sacrifice for there must always be a balance. This is one of my many true stories of my life, the dreams of a 5 year old, a strawberry patch, a piece of no. 8 wire and a grandfather who taught me the lesson of right and wrong. When I see my favourite card I know my life will change for the better. That is what the card means to me of lessons and love, beauty and magic and of lives long since gone and those to come.

High Priestess

I am pretty new to tarot , but I have used oracle cards for years . I do not really have a great story behind, or a crazy experience to share when it comes to why The High priestess is my card . It just is. Every time I see a tarot deck she is the first card that interests me.

Kinda funny I didn't notice that untill I did this exercise on finding my card. As I clicked the page to see all the different cards I just kinda new already . That blow of the wind whispers High Priestess and sure enough I couldn't agree more.

I relate and feel this card so much I might as well be printed on it ;)

The High Priestess

by Chantal
(Maassluis, The Netherlands)

All my life I have been different then others, i make decisions based on my feelings and emotions.

I feel people's moods and state of mind, can predict how someone will react and I am open for spiritual things.

This is also how I raise my children. I have no other method of living my life, things come as they are and I am a soundboard for a lot of people, they seem to value my opinion and knowledge.

My kids also have these abilities and I get a lot of compliments on how they behave and how they are able to talk about their feelings and emotions, but also they can feel how people are just like me and that makes them stable and lovable people. :-)

The High Priestess and me

by Naomi
(Georgetown, Ky)

I'm new to tarot, but I've had gifted intuition all my life. When I read about this card it deeply resonated with me, even in its reverse meaning.

The High Priestess speaks to me. I love so deeply and unconditionally. I care about people and try to help everyone and I'm very passionate about children who have been hurt or abused. Actually, I'm just passionate about children.

I love the moon and feel close to the moon (I'm a cancer..lol). My emotions run so deep and I have so many I don't even know what they're all called..lol. I've held in my hurt, pain and loss and everything.

The Priestess speaks to me in everything she has to say. She tells me I need to focus on me, my spiritual and emotional needs. To release the buried emotions, release all negative influences, to trust myself and my intuition. But, most important she tells me that I'm not alone..that even though I have lost so much, have so many emotions to get out and work through, so much healing and discovering to do..I won't be alone going through it. She tells me Spirit is there for me urging me to continue seeking and supporting me. She gives me strength and hope.

Thank you so much for giving me the chance to tell my story and super thank you for introducing me to the High Priestess!

La Sacerdotisa

by Stefan
(España)

Una muger que se encuentra en el umbral, en medio de una encrucijada, ella te indica cual es tu verdadero camino sin influir en tu decisión, es representante de la diosa.

Simboliza la intuicion, los enemigos ocultos y el saber antiguo.

Although I'm male, the priestess is more in tune with me.

Revealing what is hidden behind the veil, knowledge with intuition.

High Priestess and Moon by N.Haynes

by Natasha Haynes
(Fresno, TX, USA)





I related greatly with the High Priestess. I am always looking for inner meaning in my dreams and the feelings or vibes I get off of other people.

From an early age I have been extremely sensitive. After my grandmother's passing in my teens she has visited me. I have profound dreams that often fill prophetic. As in my youth (prior to be burned repeatedly) I was often referred to as a "bleeding heart" or that I "wear my heart on my sleeve".

However in reverse I don't take care of myself. I have high levels of anxiety and as a result try to lock myself away from the world. My greatest fear is to loose control of my emotions and cry or scream in front of everyone.

The next card I feel closely connected to is the Moon card. I believe in all things mystical however I have deep faith. Everything is connected and love is universal. And like I mentioned before I have this connection to death. I knew before my parents told me that my grandmother was dead. And every death since (except for a dear friend) I somehow am able to just know that they person is/will be passing away. I have the same connection to life as I can feel someone bring life into the world.

I was raised Baptist however I have had the pull to Tarot for a long time. I have always been hesitant to purchase a random Tarot set because I understand the spiritual connection to such items.

This isn't much of a story (funny, ha, ha type) but it's my story of being drawn to Tarot and my connection to the cards.
