The High Priestess Reversed – Tarot card meaning

The high priestess reversed

The High Priestess is a card of the Major Arcana set and is all about patience, secrets and knowledge. It is neither a positive nor negative card, in fact many of the symbols on the face show balance; sitting beside Boaz and Jachin, with a Sun cross and Moon crescent.  You hold the tools required to continue, just give it time. Consider listening to your gut feeling more. Recently you may have felt that you were going against your instinct for whatever reason, whether this was something recently that you did which was morally wrong, or maybe you feel you are walking down an incorrect path. Introspection will usually lead us to our inner goals, thoughts and feelings. Take some time to yourself to consider your life and look for help from those more experienced. If you find you have no time for yourself, then make yourself a priority.
