- Tarot Oracle Answer: The High Priestess
A tapestry hangs behind her printed with pomegranates and dates. She wears a headpiece with a full moon and two curved crescents on it, and there is the outline of a cross across the center of her chest over her heart chakra. Her clothing is blue and white, and at her feet, wrapped partially in her blue robe, is a crescent moon. These images are richly symbolic and offer clues as to the meaning of the card. As a card of the major arcana, the High Priestess has special significance in readings.
Therefore, when this card appears, the querent knows the information she imparts is of special significance. She appears after the Magician I --indicating his ability flows into greater power that becomes hers--and before the Empress III , revealing what she has the potential to become if she walks the path of wisdom.
In numerology , the number two indicates partnership, harmony, balance, and duality.

This numerology is further reflected in the presence of two phases of the moon and the two pillars she sits between. In the case of the High Priestess, the number two suggests that when two come together in partnership, harmony, and balance of dual aspects such as dark and light , they do so for the purpose of creation of new Divine energies.
The presence of the moon on her headpiece and at her feet suggests the High Priestess works in secret under the cover of moonlight. The moon is also the symbol of yin , or the Divine feminine, which is intuitive and creative. The presence of the Torah in her lap indicates the presence of Divine teachings, although the Torah is half hidden. This suggests she has access to Divine wisdom, but it is partially hidden, so she needs to use her second sight to obtain it.
The presence of the cross alongside the Torah suggests the wisdom available in multiple sources of religious texts and belief systems. The throne upon which she sits befits her station of High Priestess.
The pillars of dark and light once again reveal the balance in duality between yin and yang. The secrets of the world wait to be unlocked, but only if the path to them can be found.
She sits quietly observing all paths, waiting for the way to reveal itself. You have been in your time of quiet, and it has been the correct course of action. Your calm and peace has served you well, and allowed you to negotiate otherwise turbulent waters in serenity. You have been collecting the correct information, and have created no unnecessary waves in the water. Not by fear of action, but of knowing that this was the correct path to take.

Quiet observation and wise distribution of energy is the key at this time. Patience is the only virtue that will see you through your current conundrum, patience and calm.
