What do the letters mean on the pillars of the High Priestess card mean?

Insightful Question:

In alot of decks you see “B” and “J” written on the pillars what do these letters stand for?

Insightful aNSWER:

You must be looking at the high priestess.  B and J stand for Boaz and Jakin These two names were given to the two main pillars in Jerusalem. Boaz on the left has the feminine energy of passivity and mystery and Jakin on the right represents the masculine energy it symbolizes action and consciousness. The b is white on the black pillar and the j is black on the white pillar kind of reminds me of the symbol used in martial arts.
