High Priestess

High Priestess

It’s is a good day to explore your intuition as well as the deeper, more mysterious regions of your psyche, courtesy of Mercury entering Pisces and today’s card — the High Priestess.

The High Priestess speaks of inner wisdom, psychic guidance and a sense of “knowing” even when there is not a factual basis for it (much like Mercury in Pisces). It’s a strong feminine energy — regardless of your gender. It speaks of intuition, perception and wisdom, and all the secrets of the universe unveiled.

In this version of the card we meet Frigga, the Norse goddess of beauty, love and marriage. She was also goddess of the Sky and clouds, as well as a renowned prophet and Seer.

Frigga was able to foresee the future but unable to change it. This may be in keeping with the “unlucky” aspect associated with Friday the 13th: when you think about it, it’s only the unlucky part of fate that any of us want to change.

Here we see her emerging from a dark pool (memories, the unconscious, feelings and emotions). Behind her is a majestic throne with her blood red cloak draped over it, and behind that an enormous Crescent Moon. The juxtaposition between her red cloak (passion) and her white gown (purity) reinforces her enigmatic nature, as does her perfectly still and centered stance. She crosses her arms before her, keeping her secrets close to her heart.

Like the High Priestess in the card, you may be getting in touch with your own intuition today, or thinking about delving into the mystery schools — learning tarot, astrology, numerology, etc. Or you may find yourself experiencing profound instances or deja vu or synchronicity. You may also be experiencing bursts of creativity and inspiration. Another possibility, one that comes unexpectedly, is a sudden onset of clairvoyance or psychic impressions.

It’s important to embrace these visions and try to understand them, rather than shying away from them. They can bring incredible insights into not only your own personal choices, but also into the direction you need to be heading in order to achieve your goals over the next several weeks.

Seven of Swords

Seven of Swords

Today you might need to act swiftly and decisively, especially if you’re wanting to strike while the iron is hot or jump on an opportunity before it’s too late.

The Seven of Swords is all about guile and mental acuity. It speaks of stealth, cunning and ingenuity, which may require you to keep your plans under wraps or to act entirely on your own. 

In some versions of this card, the emphasis is on treachery and evasion. And you do want to be on your guard against suspicious actions and behaviors.

Feeling like you’re being spied on, cheated, stolen from, or lied too are all common aspects of this card.

But this rendition emphasizes planning, cunning, ingenuity and problem-solving. Notice the protagonist deftly slipping away from the sleeping Dragon as he makes his escape.

He’s crept into the Dragon’s lair and has stolen 5 of the 7 swords. Now he must carefully retrace his steps as he makes his way toward the exit.

He must maintain his composure and not lose sight of his mission: one false move could send a river of gold spilling out from under him, which would surely wake the Dragon.
