2 – The High Priestess:
Keywords: Mystery, feminine mystique, passivity, receptivity, purity, virginity, intuition
In some ways she is the counterpart to the Magician, powerful but more internal/passive. She is the feminine mystique. She holds the secrets in her hands and sits before the veil hiding the mysteries. The pillars on each side of her labeled B & J. Boaz and Jachin were the names of the pillars at the entrance to the temple in Jerusalem. She is linked to the Moon and the cycles therein. (I have heard it said that the Moon card is the High Priestess card as seen from the other side…) She is calm, pure, unspoiled. She embodies intuition and inner knowledge… possibilities and things hidden.
